    I would think that with all of the money shortages that senators would be happy to reduce mandatory minimums. especially with the new computer laws-no victim. The people are being so misled by the news, these so called predators are being approached in adult chatrooms by undercover police who initiate conversations, not on my space.

    Mr Levin, I heard you speak about this Extension for Unemployment and I believe you want this money for your constituents and the benefit it will do for our State’s economy. This Iraq-Afghanistan War funding Bill with the new GI Bill along with the Unemployment Extensions need to pass the Senate just as it did in the House with the same Language and no more ADD-ON’S. Just the way it went through the House. I know you have some pull and Senators are always bargaining with other Senators for funding in their respective States. So for now, Let’s leave all the Poker Playing away from the Senate Floor this Week (06/23/2008) and pass The House’s version of the Bill that Pres. Bush wants and said he will sign. So please make this right and help allot of people across this Nation.

  • gkdaw_usa 07/12/2008 10:25am

    Can you Do this agian, and in Fact can you make the Job’s come Back so we would not have the Hassil of this it is the best answer! I like what you are doing and I think you are doing the best you can with those slice Repulicanot’s are complaining about the Law when they have been braking them for all this past time Bush has been in Office!

    13-Week Unemployment Extension Signed into Law

    On June 30, President Bush signed a Supplemental funding bill for
    critical military and domestic needs that includes a 13-week extension
    of unemployment insurance (UI) benefits. Rep. Levin said, “Today the
    voices of over one million out of work Americans are finally being
    heard, with a much needed extension of unemployment benefits. This is
    a victory for more than a million of our citizens that have already
    exhausted their benefits, and an additional 2 ½ million estimated to
    exhaust in the coming months – including over 200,000 Michigan
    residents. The 13-week extension signed by the president today is a
    vital first step. We will be ready to fight to sustain the program for
    people who continue to be unemployed in a difficult job market.” WE Thank You an yours for helping with this!

    Happy Independents Day America!

    I think we are further from American Independents than We were

    from the start !
    It started out to be U.S. verses British Rule and now it is the United
    States of America Verses The rule of OIL but are we fighting to help the
    rule of Oil or are WE fighting to brake away from Oil it is all the to be
    looked at but we are on the wrong side at this time in history
    of true Independents we have the technologies to brake away from the RULER
    of Oil but our Leader in not for Independents he is for the Rule of OIL and
    the Rule of Oil is not IN this Country so the Ruler
    is not in this country and so the people of this country is too suffer the
    poor to suffer the most of all because the ruler of Oil has sent job’s away
    so the people would have more to complain about and still not
    really do a thing to fix this mess , the Rule has taken away all your Rights
    from are True INDEPENDENTS to try to replace it with the rule of Oil , and
    not to use the TECHNOLOGIES of yesterday to bring it to the Future, so by
    doing so we are not so Independent as WE should be. I can not stand it, I
    could be thronging names or Businesses names but most people know the truth
    and it is just a mater of time when the people of this country start dying
    for this U.S.A. country agian !
    Electric could be are NEW INDEPENDENTS! FROM THE RULER OF OIL!

    House Approves Bill to Restore Protections for Individuals with
    Disabilities

    On June 25, the House approved the Americans with Disabilities Act
    Amendments [H.R. 3195
    <http://aihs1.house.gov/t/21577/3949957/722/0/>]. The
    measure, which was approved on a vote of 402 to 17, specifically
    rejects the erroneous Supreme Court decisions that have reduced the
    protections for people with disabilities under the Americans with
    Disabilities Act (ADA). Since the ADA was first approved in 1990, it
    has helped millions of Americans with disabilities succeed in the
    workplace by making transportation, housing, buildings, services and
    other elements of daily life more accessible to individuals with
    disabilities.

    Unfortunately, since 1999, several U.S. Supreme Court decisions have
    narrowed the definition of disability so much that people with serious
    conditions such as epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, cancer, diabetes, and
    cerebral palsy have been determined to not have impairments that meet
    the definition of disability under the ADA. H.R. 3195 restores the
    original congressional intent.

    I think if one or more of the senators have a vested interest in Oil or alterative energy, they should not be able to vote becouse they have a vested interest in one or the other and it will be the only way to get a real honest VOTE in Congress.

    Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was , including the phonograph and a long lasting light bulb. Dubbed “The Wizard of Menlo Park” by a newspaper reporter, he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production to the process of invention, and therefore is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.

    He became an American and did not put Us in this shape! This Mess!

    Carl. What have you done for us lately?

  • gman86428 10/01/2008 7:40am

    Please consider the other approaches to solving this financial crises. The American people should not have to put our dollars into the corrupt financial markets. I hope you will not support the emergency economic stabilization with your vote tonight. No one seems to want to look at the alternatives. It seems everybody want to obliterate the American Government financially. It looks like the govt will give all control to Federal Reserve Bank and the National Treasury. It reminds of the quote by Rothchild many years ago that says something like If I control a countries money then I care not who makes the laws. Is this what America has come to?

  • gman86428 10/02/2008 3:10am

    I was greatly disappointed to see that you had supported the bail out bill last night. It would appear by looking at the other comments on this page that you have once again voted your way and not the way of the people on this measure. As I had written before there are other ways to solve this crisis without taxpayer money. We sure did not do this in the 30’s. I guess congress just doesnt learn from our own history. I will not be supporting you in this November election.

  • brenden42 11/17/2008 3:36pm

    How many zeros in a billion?

    This is too true to be funny.
    The next time you hear a politician use the
    word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about
    whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending
    YOUR tax money.

    A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
    but one advertising agency did a good job of
    putting that figure into some perspective in
    one of its releases.

    A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

    B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

    C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were
    living in the Stone Age.

    D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

    E. A billion dollars ago was only
    8 hours and 20 minutes,
    at the rate our government
    is spending it.

    While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
    let’s take a look at New Orleans .
    It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

    Louisiana Senator,
    Mary Landrieu (D)
    is presently asking Congress for
    250 BILLION DOLLARS
    to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number…
    what does it mean?

    A. Well…. if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
    (every man, woman, and child)
    you each get $516,528.

    B. Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
    New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787..

    C. Or… if you are a family of four…
    your family gets $2,066,012.

  • jag_fisch 03/20/2009 5:50pm

    Maybe it’s time you started listening to your voters. Just because you’ve been elected to this position doesn’t mean the majority of the voters want you to precisely follow your own agenda. LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE!! If someone were to ask you what voter responses you’ve received regarding a position on any said bill, could you say for a fact that you’re voting according to the majority (voter’s, not constituent’s)? Likely alot of people are now considering running for offices throughout the country ready and willing to legislate based on the “VOICE OF THE PEOPLE” and could likely win an election on that platform alone! Since it’s not your typical legislative ethic, plan on vacating your seat this next election.

    Do any of you really think that Senator Levin reads this? If you want to send him a message, go to his website and send him an email. Before you do though, try to put together a coherent thought and then grab your handy dandy dictionary and learn to spell. If most of the comments here come from Michigan residents, our schools are in worse shape than I thought. Yoopervan73, I would gladly sign a petition!
