War Funding Vote today.

The House votes today on the extra special off-budget 'emergency' funding for the Afghan war.

What really should be happening is that we should be gathered around the Capital in our millions, demanding that these billions be spent instead on unemployment benefits and economic stimulus that would benefit American citizens.

But since we're not that smart or that active, we should at least be bombarding every Congresspersons office with our phone calls and emails. Here's a link to a site begging 21 so-called 'progressive' Congresspeople to actually vote like they talk. And contact your own Representative. The Capital Hill switchboard number is (202) 224-3121.

And, don't be fooled by the Democrats' trickery with fake votes and half votes and the like. Just wait until the dust is settled, then look to see if the war is funded or not funded. If at the end of the day the war is funded, then you know the Democrats support this war (again). That will be the clear sign that this is the Democrat's war and that a vote this fall for the Democrats is a vote for more and more and more war.

You've seen the Collateral Murder video (if not, scroll down to embedded player below).  Today you get to find out if the Democratic majority in the House spends more of your money to keep that happening again and again.   Or if they stand and say no more by stopping the money that pays for the war.
