    Get off the backside of your butt and do SOMETHING for this country. Rip the environmentalists a new body cavity and get our own oil in our system so we can save the 6.1 TRILLION dollars the arabs are going to reap from this latest increase in a barrel of oil. What must we do to heat our homes? Paying more than 3 bucks a gallon for heating oil is ludicrous because our government can’t stand up for us. Give more money to the world, The cost of making ethanol is costing more than it’s worth in burning in a car. All that’s accomplishing is to drive up the cost of food. Nice going, a real snooker job on congress for this fiasco. Go environmentalists and Al Gore, wreck this country as fast as you can.

    I think you mean “liberals”, not “liberalism”. Liberalism is a philosophical ideology that stresses the preservation of human freedoms (i.e. liberties) and promotion of equality, and forms the basis of American democracy and the philosophies of Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians to name a few.

    “Liberal” and “progressive” ideology is strongly pro-democratic and shares the same roots in liberalism as “conservative” ideology, in marked contrast to many unfounded claims that liberal ideology is an offshoot of socialism or fascism (incidentally, socialism and fascism are completely opposed to each other in almost every respect and don’t share any philosophical roots).

    Just keep in mind that the actions of individuals who are labeled as “conservatives” or “liberals” are not necessarily representative of those political philosophies, so be careful about leveling criticism against a particular political philosophy based upon the actions of a few individuals or even a political party.

    THANK YOU Senator Boxer! for voting NO on SJ R-26. If Toyota Prius can make a solar powered air conditioner, surely California’s silicon valley can create jobs and energy here at home that doesn’t give money to the oil monopolies.

    Please support HR 4775, the bill to ban toxic poisons from being introduced into the environment to indiscriminately kill off the creatures we should be sharing the planet with. This should have been done a long time ago! We are not barbarians.

    Environmentalist, how much are you willing to pay for such a trivial goal when California is alreday the #1 in most taxes (income tax, sales tax, #1 on the west coast for business taxes etc.)

    I don’t believe in worthless causes and so I don’t believe in saving a few bugs, squash them all

    Wouldn’t you think that Barack could get back to work in the Senate and do SOMETHING concrete for this country?
    He’s being paid for this job and doing nothing.
    Why can’t he pass Kennedy’s bill UI extension 2544 (which he cosponsored)?
    If he can’t get things done in the Senate, don’t EVEN make promises for when it’s too late!!!!!!!!!!!
    Give up a photo op, Barack, and get some work done in the Senate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think some of our Elected Officials are really out of touch with what is going on with the working class these days. Pass the Iraq-Afghanistan war funding, along with the new GI Bill and the Unemployment Extensions. This bill needs to be voted on this week and passed. Your people out here are depending on you.

  • dantk 06/23/2008 1:57pm

    Senator Boxer, I am Respectfully asking you to use your influence in the Senate and pass the Legislation for the War Funding Supplement, The New GI Bill, Disaster Relief Funds and the Unemployment Extension. Please pass this as is no more additions to it please. I am an Ex-Marine who served Honorably four years. I went and done what ever my Country ask without Question. I have worked Union Construction in the Detroit area for over 20+ years. Times are tough and people who have dedicated themselves to a better life now see it fading away. Please push this Legislation through our Senate as is, so the money can get to Americans who need it badly. Thank You for your time and consideration.
    Respectfully and Sincerely,
    Timothy

  • OliviasMom 08/08/2008 5:03pm

    Dear Senator Boxer,

    I am pleading with you to vote in favor of H.R. 4926, here is my personal reason why:

    My first awareness of Longated QT Syndrome (LQTS) or Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in young adults was April 12, 2004. On this day I went into my daughter’s bedroom to wake her up for school and found her not breathing. My daughter was in the hospital for 10 days, on life support. The doctors were not sure why this seemingly healthy, 14 year old girl, would just stop breathing. After days of running test after test, a cardiologist was finally able to give us a diagnosis, Long QT syndrome.

    What, what is Long QT Syndrome? What were the warning signs my daughter would have had? Why didn’t her pediatrician detect this problem at birth? Why, when I took her to the doctor for headaches, dizziness, feeling as though she were going to faint, why didn’t they request an EKG, or why didn’t I request it? Why, because I was unaware of this silent killer known as Long QT Syndrome.

    Olivia had always been an energetic, bright, beautiful child. She was so curious about everything, always wanting excitement and adventure in her life. Olivia was very active as a cheerleader and loved to play basketball. Olivia was very competitive, healthy as can be, so we thought.

    April 22, 2004, my 14 year old daughter, Olivia Corinne Hoff, passed away.

    As a mother, I am writing this to bring public awareness to our community about LQTS and SCA and the importance of AED’in our local schools.

    It was four years April 22, 2008 that my daughter passed away. Not a day goes by that I don’t ask myself, Why didn’t I know, why didn’t I see the warning signs ? If I had, maybe Olivia would be alive today. Unfortunately, for me and my family, our life is forever changed. As a mom, I cannot express the depth of pain in losing a child. When my daughter died, a part of me died too.

    I understand that this bill would, among other things, establish a grant program for local education agencies to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and train school staff to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and correctly use AEDs.

    I ask that you please do your part to save lives by doing what you can to see that the Senate passes H.R. 4926. There are many parents grieving for their children and feeling the same pain that I will we will feel for the rest of our lives.

    I am a Mom on a Mission to do whatever I can to save the lives or our children. I will not let Olivia’s death be in vain. Olivia cannot speak out about LQTS. Olivia cannot ask the Senate to help pass H.R. 4926. I am Olivia’s voice. As Olivia’s mom, I will continue to do all that I can to honor my daughter’s memory, as memories is all I have.

    Sincerely,

    Corinne Ruiz, Olivia’s mom

    I sure wish you would do something about the price of oil, you know, say, drill for it; maybe build a refinery. Seems to me that we’re paying higher prices for gas because you and others refuse to do anything about it. I’m sick and tired of voting for individuals who put their political careers above the interests of the people. Guess I’ll have to see what I can do about that come election day.

    Thanks for nothing!

    What’s the deal with all of these SEPARATE bills for extending benefits? Our responses are DILUTED on the different bills. When they look for the number of comments, it looks like not many but when they add together the comments for all the UE extension bills introduced, they’d have to RESPOND to us!!!!
    2544 is the one that:
    - was introduced FIRST
    - gives us a $50 increase
    - should be pushed for by ALL of us
    Make them honor KENNEDY and show empathy for US by passing that bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fellow Americans. Remember we can vote this Senator out of office in 2010. I believe that with the current events its time for us to fire these people. Remember this and tell all of your friends and family.

    Shame on you, MS. Boxer for voting for H.R. 1424. You have just thumbed your nose at the American people. I encourage all California voters to vote this Senator out as soon as possible. She may not be worried about jobs or our savings in 401k plans but we certainly do. And then to fill this bill with so much pork, give the CEO’s a golden umbrella….How dare you.

  • JHENRY 10/30/2008 2:02pm

    Dear Senator Boxer:

    Please help Hilliary to pass Senate Bill S661, and Rep. Danny Davis HR 2188 both are KINSHIP CAREGIVER SUPPORT ACT. This bill must be for Relative caregivers that took children our of Foster Care and gave them a safe, stable home. Currently it looks like this bill is for Foster Care. WHEN ARE RELATIVE CARE GIVERS THAT ARE NOW GUARDIANS TO THOSE FOSTER CHILDREN GOING TO GET ANY FINANCIAL HELP? ESPECIALLY SENIORS THAT ARE RAISING THEIR RELATIVE’S CHILDRE/GRANDCHILDREN. RETIREMENT FUNDS AND SOCIAL SECURITY ONLY GO SO FAR, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE RELATIVE CAREGIVER IS IN THEIR LATE 60’S AND THE CHILDREN ARE 7,11 AND 16 YEARS OLD. THE SOONER THIS BILL GETS PASSED WITH THIS IN MIND, THE BETTER.
    We spoke with your rep this afternoon at the Anza Community Center. We hope you can help us out.

    To all Senators:

    Please do not let Hillary Clinton’s S661 die in committee. This is a very important piece of legislature that effects the lives of senior relative care givers. Please make sure it is not just for foster care homes, as most of the bills are, but for all relative caregivers. We need financial help and we need it now.

    Thank you

    Did you know that the federal government is in a $53 trillion financial hole?

    A hole that’s growing by $2 trillion to $3 trillion every year? That amounts to a burden of $175,000 on each and every American citizen.

    These frightening facts are spelled out in detail in “I.O.U.S.A.,” a new Sundance-selected documentary that also offers possible solutions. I would strongly urge you to visit www.IOUSATheMovie.com to learn more, and to visit www.PGPF.org to get the full details from the companion “State of the Union’s Finances” report.

    This film has been called the “Inconvenient Truth” for America’s looming fiscal crisis, and with good reason. It directly addresses the four key deficits confronting America: budget, savings, balance of payments/trade, and perhaps most crucial of all, our leadership deficit.

    Will you learn the facts about our growing fiscal challenges, or will you wait until crisis hits? What’s coming down the pike could make the subprime mortgage problem seem like a speed-bump.

    Please read the report at www.PGPF.org, please take the time to watch this powerful film, and then please use YOUR power to do something about this problem.
