Viva La Resistance!

I just sent an email to Senator Ron Wyden, D. Oregon, thanking him for attempting to stop the FISA bill, whose corporate immunity provisions are almost surely going to allow Bush, Cheney, and the rest of the gang that's currently raping and pillaging our way of life in the name of their own power and profit, to get out of the White House with all the swag they can carry and no chance of any sort of accounting.

If your Senator was one of the 15 who voted against cloture, send him or her an email, or a phone call, and let them know you appreciate what they did. If your Senator was one of the 80 who voted for cloture, to stop Senator Dodd's filibuster, let them know how despicable an act it was.

Follow the link above to Firedoglake, where the vote, and its significance to rescuing democracy from kleptocracy in the US is discussed in detail.
