Response From Senator Hagan’s Office

Posted on September 30, 2009. Filed under: Uncatagorized | Tags: |

My husband and I have been burning up Senator Kay Hagan’s email box with our concerns about Health Care, Cap and Trade and other issues. Over and over we get the same automatically generated reply from her office. At least we know the emails are landing in a box somewhere.

My question is, does anyone read them? Does anyone count the for and against emails on any particular topic? Somehow, I doubt it. Here is the text of her automatic email reply for your entertainment:

September 30, 2009

Dear Friend,

I wanted to take a moment to
thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts and opinions. Since taking
office, I have received an overwhelming number of calls and emails from North
Carolinians like you who are ready to take an active part in our government. I
appreciate each and every call and email. With our country facing some of its
toughest challenges in a generation, your phone calls and messages are an
important factor guiding my work here in Washington. Please be assured that we
will get back to you as soon as possible regarding your specific concern.

I would like to take this opportunity to share my website with you.
Please visit http://Hagan.Senate.Gov to find contact information for my offices
and to stay updated as my new state offices open. You can also find information
there about what I’ve been doing in North Carolina and Washington. It is an
honor to serve as your United States Senator, and I appreciate your patience as
I transition into this new role. I sincerely hope you will not hesitate to
contact me at any time to share your concerns and voice your opinions on our
country’s most pressing issues.

Sincerely,

Kay R. Hagan
United States Senator, North Carolina

Letters to Hagan

Posted on September 29, 2009. Filed under: Uncatagorized | Tags: |

I spent some time this morning writing letters to my Senator. Senator Hagan has constantly followed the Democratic Party line in her voting and I know that trying to persuade her to change is futile. However, I will continue to try. I have actually grown to enjoy banging my head against a brick wall. (Just joking, but you know the feeling.)

I ask that the rest of you try as well. Let your elected representatives know how you feel. Be polite, be concise, and be persistent. Write letters or emails. Call them. However you do it, let them know how you feel about the issues. Let them know how you want them to vote.

We have sat on our couches and cursed the television too long. We have napped through the groundwork being laid for a peaceful takeover of our government and our lives. The Radical Left has taken control of three branches of our government. The agenda they are pushing through in the form of the healthcare bills (there are several-nobody seems to know how many) and the Energy bills (there are several of those floating around too) will drastically change life in these United States.

Get off your butts, and call, write, or email. You owe it to yourselves, your children, and your grandchildren.

If enough of us let them know that going against our will means they lose their jobs; maybe, just maybe they will listen. And after listening, and finally hearing us, maybe they will act in our behalf.

If they don’t; get out of bed and off your butts in 2010 and 2012 and vote them out of office!

Japan Abandons America

Posted on September 28, 2009. Filed under: Uncatagorized | Tags: |

I work for a Japanese owned company. It’s probably one of the reasons I still have a job in the current economy. Naturally, Japanese/American relations is extremely important to me on a personal level.

The UK Telegraph reported recently that , “A split is emerging between the United States and Japan over the new Tokyo government’s anti-globalization rhetoric and its threats to end a refueling agreement for US ships in support of the war in Afghanistan.”

The new Japanese leader, Yukio Hatoyama, was sworn in last Wednesday and is threatening a split with the United States. Hatoyama blames the US for the global economic melt-down and is threatening to only use the yen in dealings with the US. This would drastically lower the value of the dollar. His campaign also promised a more “independent” foreign policy from Washington, and closer relations with Japan’s Asian neighbors.

America is about to lose one of its most powerful allies. This will affect all Americans, but I am especially concerned. What will happen to my job then?
