Calling ALL Pooses!

URGENT CALL TO ALL POOSES!

We need your help. Chris Dodd needs your help. America needs your help!

We need reinforcements for the Bite & Run Patrol for Friday's showdown in Congress. There are way too many ankles and knees of Senators who want to actually grant immunity to telephone companies for us to bite. (So many ankles.. so little time!)

Facts for you to know!
A Senate filibuster led by Senator Chris Dodd is promised against a bill that would grant immunity from lawsuits against telecommunication companies that participated in the Bush administration's warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., reiterated his intent to block the Intelligence Committee's version of a renewed surveillance law known as FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) if it includes immunity.

The bill is S.2248. There is a competing FISA bill from the Judiciary Committee which does not grant immunity.
An amendment by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., which would have stripped immunity from the Judiciary Committee version, was tabled this afternoon, by a vote of 60-34.

The Pooses for Peace will be helping Chris Dodd once again with Bite & Run patrols roaming the aisles of Congress, reminding all those voting to do the right thing... or should we say the bite thing? We invite any poose who would like to be a part of the Bite & Run Brigade to join us in our quest for restoring our liberties. (In the future we will invite other critters to join as suggested by Presidential Candidate Cheysuli. Due to the urgency we do not have time to train them in proper biting techniques.)

If there is a filibuster we will also be helping Senator Dodd field questions and turn pages as he reads from the constitution or George Orwell's 1984.

What can your pet humans do? Well.. they can bug their Senators, pester Harry Reid and ask Hillary and Obama why they are not in DC voting for this important matter. All talk.. no action!

Do you want George Bush and Darth Cheney listening to your phone calls.... reading your emails? If the answer is no.... we need you!

The Pooses for Peace Bite Patrol
Be all that you can bite! We are looking for a few good pooses.

Okay, so who can I bite? I am waiting for an assignment!

(Cheysuli cannot bite as it would not help her campaign.)

I am feeling much better now. I hope lots of kitties sign up for Bite Patrol. Those Congressmen need all the help they can muster.
