This month-August- your reps and sens might hold meetings in your area.

This would be a good chance to meet them in person and express your concerns regarding the SA and other issues.

I try to be well read about public issues, but what is 'SA'?

I've been to these townhall meetings before, all you get is platitudes, looks of concern and then you're forgotten about the minute the critter returns to D.C.

I'm sorry I'm so cynical, but I believe that that is the way it is; money talks and, well, you know what walks...

On the state level, I've seen state representatives give Ma & Pa Constituent 'half of an ear' while they are expressing their concerns, only to have the state rep notice a high powered lobbyist hovering near by and then the rep excuses himself from Ma & Pa Constituent so he can backslap and handshake the lobbyist. It's really a sad state of affairs...

That would be the Second Amendment. That's the one about guns and stuff......

Well, DUUUHHHHH! Okay, you got me on that one. It could've meant 'semi-auto'

So that I can recover gracefully, may I say that I was once represented by one of the finest 2nd Amendment supporters in D.C., Dr. Ron Paul? Now because of redistricting, I am now represented by Lloyd Dogget who has not responded to my email regarding his position on the SA.

Everyone I've been to was a waste of time. They will not answer your questions directly.

They sent me a letter to call about stuff. I called, they are supposed to call me back.

No meetings, and they dont let people like me near those things.
