Re: “Letters to the Editor

It's time to elect a congressman who is one of us, not a career politician, but an independent thinking person who will do what is best for all of us, not just the wealthy few--someone who has sound ideas and experience that will be jobs to our district and advocate on our behalf. That person is Greg Rabidoux. www.rabidoux4congress.com.
P.S. Did anyone notice that Marsha bragged that she has not requested one cent for projects in her district in years? Damn, if we can't depend on our own rep to advocate for us, who will???

Re: “Underdog Rabidoux Stokes the Democratic Base in Challenge to Blackburn

I thought the Rabidoux ad was effective. Hollihan must have thought so too or he would not have spent so much time making disparaging remarks about it. You see, thou doth protest too much. At any rate, the content of the ad was right on.
As far as Marsha's voting record. Here are a couple of things. She voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and a few months ago she co-sponsored legislation with Paul Ryan of WI to privatize social security and turn Medicare into a voucher system. She's voted for every free trade agreement that's come up during her tenure and then blames unions for the outsourcing of American jobs.
She got on President Obama for not getting tough enough with BP, and on Thursday co-hosted a $1000 a plate luncheon with BP lobbyists. I guess she loves that oily money, even if it is tainted. She's never been for us. I guess that's why she has lost Hardeman County in the last two election cycles when she's had a Democratic opponent. We've got her number.

Re: “EDITORIAL: Bill Morrison and Public Financing

This was a great article and so true. It is a real shame that a regular kind of guy like Bill Morrison who clearly represents middle-class working people, not party labels, doesn't stand a chance against someone like Blackburn who literally doesn't care if we live or die. Her voting record is a clear indication of that--all she wants to do is cut taxes for the ultra-wealthy, cut veteran's benefits, privatize social security, cut our police and fire protection, and cut educational funding, and build that fence to keep illegals out. (It would be nice if they just enforce the immigration laws already on the books!) At the same time, she doesn't even have to spend her money to get the lies out---the special interest groups who have bought her votes will gladly spread the propaganda. It always gets the little blue-haired old ladies to go to the polls to vote against their own interests. Let's pray this time they will be a little bit smarter. We can help Bill buy media time. Send him some money so at least it will be a fair fight-- www.votebillmorrison.com---I did.
