      Very sad to see Andre Carson on that list of "Nays". As someone who voted for him in the past I'll be sending him a letter to let him him know what I think of his decision. Anyone want to join me?

      Subject: [ipjn] Republicans and a few Dems in Congress vote for more war


      Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) attempted to get his resolution forcing the withdrawal of
      American forces no later than Dec. 31. passed, but Democrats sided with Republicans
      and the measure was soundly rejected.

      Rep. Patrick Kennedy, yesterday, took the media to task their ignoring the
      war in Afghanistan, focusing, instead on the silliness of Eric Massa
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q-VGZiEbrs


      But have a look at how the media, under attack, defends itself by calling Kennedy's floor speech
      a "tirade," and "spin".
      http://news.yahoo.com/video/local-15749667/18563903


      How do you fight against the media, who buy their ink by the barrel, paper by the ton, and
      have a cadre of good lawyers on retainer?

      I'll tell you how: WE must become the media!

      Peace soon,

      Dave
