Congressionally Approved Torture Tools for Lobbying 2

Since both the White House and Congress no longer consider prosecuting torture as a crime, it is safe to assume that we can begin to legally use these methods as legitimate tools to lobby our Congress and White House for the real changes we expect from our government. These methods that I document will be equally applicable to those who lobby against the interests of average American citizen on these issues.

Congressionally Approved Method of Lobbying #2, the method for lobbying Congressional members and White House administration officials that push for hate based and bigoted legislation against the LGBT community and Marriage Equality will be placed below the fold because even the edited image is probably NSFW:

Congressionally Approved Method of Lobbying #2

Method for lobbying Congressional members and White House administration officials that push for hate based and bigoted legislation against the LGBT community and Marriage Equality:

Making them face their own inner demons that are, often times, based on a self loathing because of repressed feelings concerning their own confused sexuality might begin to arouse their interest in equality for all as founding documents clearly defines it.

Standard Connecticut policed state disclaimer: Please read and clearly understand the meaning of "SNARK" before you waste my time and the taxpayers money following me around on the internet and in the real world. Just remember how stupid illegally harassing Ken Krayeske made all of you look.

fresh in their minds as we push for real accountability.

although consenting adults are free to do what they choose, to force people into situations like that depicted surely violates the Geneva Conventions and is clearly illegal under our constitution and international law.

That said, your snark is well taken, although I don't understand your disclaimer, living in yet another version and level of police state.

We are not represented in this country.

A way to improve things is to start putting effort into increasing the size of the House of Representatives. Since the early 20th century, we have lost half of our representation per citizen that we had when the size of the House was fixed at (near) its current size.

This one change (doubling or tripling or more the size of the House) would change so many things that whenever I read the events of the day, it is the first thing that comes to me, over and over.

It would (to summarize): decrease the effects of gerrymandering; lower the cost of running for a seat in Congress; lower the ability to bribe congressmen (since there would be more of them and it would be cheaper to run for Congress and challenge the tainted ones); change the Electoral College ratios to more closely reflect the populations of the states (helping to fix that problem without any changes to the Constitution); improve representation of minorities and under-represented people; restore the power of "the Peoples' House"; and many more.

police at a parade in Hartford while taking photos of the Governor. He is well known in CT for his peaceful activism and also his dead tree media journalism chops. It turned out that they were harassing him because of snarky comments he made on a Blog and the DHS, FBI and local police all had him on a "list" of people to watch in CT. To this day we have not found out who else is on that list. If you click the link and read it thoroughly it lays out the entire scandal pretty much as it unfolded on the Blogs and in the news. The huge excerpt in that diary ("The Big Book on Krayeske") is one of my top ten posts and had over 1500 hits from local lawyers' offices internet addies and CT government officials alone. Everyone in CT's Blogosphere and the media provided bits and pieces to the story.
