How about sending a very large number of copies, which I plan to do. Also, I suspect one reason the illustious leader of our country, and decision maker, has decided to combine our country with the other two on the continent so we can't stop it, is already done, I don't agree, we still have laws which says it is not constitutional. I am not for The NAU, or the NWO, and that's that! I expect our laws to be honored... and also to get our constitution cleaned up and back in order, asp, even it it takes impeachment to do it.We have a lot to do and the quicker we get our letters and communication to the congress, the better.

Interesting, and this is only one State...............If this doesn't open your eyes nothing will!
From the L. A. Times, a notoriously ultra left wing Liberal Newspaper[ whose circulation is dropping due to that fact ]
1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal , whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.(There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County. )
(All 10 of the above are from the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida , and New York) results from immigration.
29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.
We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.HOW CAN YOU HELP?Send copies of this letter to at least two other people . 100 would be even better.

"Two years is too longCongress must force President Bush to keep his promises by passing the Gulf Coast Housing Recovery Act of 2007."Click Here to Sign Now
Check out this great video from our friends Robert Greenwald and Brave New Foundation about the status of the recovery on the Gulf Coast.
Dear Theresa,Two years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. In the days following the tragedy, promises to help rebuild that great city and get New Orleanians back on their feet rolled in from the Bush Administration. It turns out, that's all they wereempty promises.Molly L., a MoveOn member from New Orleans, tells what really happened: "The president promised my city aid and help, but we have received almost none. He needs to be told that he was elected as the leader of the American people, and that THEY should be his first priority."It's not surprising that the Bush Administration would fail to deliverthat's their trademark. But we can't let them get away with this blatant neglect of fellow Americans who are trying to rebuild their lives. Clicking the link below will add your name to the petition telling Congress that two years is too long and that they must pass the Gulf Coast Housing Recovery Act of 2007.
The bill provides desperately needed funds for affordable housing, guarantees the replacement of public housing units, and ensures that all those who wish to return home can do so. It also continues assistance for evacuees to make sure that they have safe, decent housing until they can return home. The bill was introduced by Senator Chris Dodd and is gaining co-sponsors, including Senator Barack Obama.
There is progress in the Gulf, thanks to countless acts of courage and resourcefulness by citizens determined to rebuild. And there is still tremendous sufferingits persistence is a national disgrace. We asked MoveOn members on the Gulf Coast how they were doing two years after Katrinatheir stories were uplifting and heartbreaking, eloquent and exasperating. But their message was unmistakable: Don't forget us. Below are some of the messages they asked us to share:Life in the Big Easy isn't so easy anymore, and it might never be quite the same. As strong and proud as we New Orleanians may be, we still need the help of our fellow Americans.
Yanna G., Metairie, LAWhat helped the people of the Gulf Coast was not the government, not insurance companies, but regular everyday Americans who gave and continue to give of their time, money, moral support, friendship and love to help us here. I am so grateful for that.
Jessica J., New Orleans, LARecovery has been very slow, especially for renters. We lived in government housing and they have been one of the last to rebuild or repair their buildings. Tomorrow is the 2nd anniversary and we are still in a FEMA camper...made to vacation in, NOT live in. We are very thankful for a roof over our heads, however, we need permanent housing.
Cheryl E., Bay St. Louis, MSPlease, please, please continue to write and call your political representatives, as well as the national media, and tell them that it is unforgivable for them to continue to neglect and forget not only my once amazing city,but the entire Gulf Coast region affected.
Molly L., New Orleans, LAPlease tell your Congress they must help the Gulf Coast recover. Click below to add your name.
Thanks for all you do,
Eli, Daniel, Joan, Tanya, and the whole MoveOn.org Political Action Team
