I don’t spend as much time on hold as I have in the past because I just don’t have the patience to sit and waste my time, waiting on the phone. I’ve usually had a pen near me when I’ve been on the phone for whatever reason so I can doodle or keep notes but since I can’t stand being put on hold anymore I don’t doodle as much, so I suppose you could say with me, it’s a lost art.

But, I have spent some excruciatingly, frustrating time recently calling my representatives and senators about the porkulus bill. (the little good it’s done us) The only positive response I received was from our one lone Republican congressman who voted against it.

Unfortunately, our Senators are Democrats and both voted for it. I’m going to do everything I can to see that Blanche Lincoln, who is up for re-election in 2010, is defeated. When Mark Pryor, who just won re-election this past November, is up again, I won’t be forgetting.

Instead of being put on hold, when I called Congress, most of the time the phones were either busy or the messages were full. Congress has to know the American people are against this egregious act of generational theft but they don’t care. Yes, Senator Schumer, we do care.

We have to make them care. I’ve always been good at breaking windows and dumping tea when it comes to something I feel strongly about so I am up for Michelle Malkin’s idea. Hat tip: Ed Driscoll
