Just last night I answered a readers question about the opposition of Uranus and Saturn. The forces of left and right going head to head are here. I’d like to post this I got via-e-mail from a reader about getting involved to help support our new president get our country back on track:
You gave me that wonderful reading back in December. I just thought I’d FYI you about this rightwing campaign to scuttle President Obama’s stimulus package and what we can do to counteract it.
To all who support President Obama and his stimulus package:
The right wing has mounted a call-in drive against President Obama’s stimulus package and senators (including Durbin and Burris from Illinois), representatives and the White House are being deluged with calls. We who support Obama and his programs MUST do our part and make phone calls supporting the stimulus package.
According to Thom Hartmann, Air America radio talk show host, one of the best ways to get through is to call your local office. I found this to be the case and, in fact, when I mentioned the right wing campaign to the lady at Durbin’s office she said: “Oh, I was wondering why we were getting so many calls against the package.”
If you’re in Illinois, I’ve listed the Chicago senate office numbers for Burris and Durban below. There is also info for folks from other states.
Also, it’s important to call the White House Comment Line (number below). I just called it and the operator I talked to said that she had received 40 calls against the stimulus package and only 10 for it.
IMPORTANT: CALLING IS THE KEY, NOT EMAILING.
