    H.R. 3291 The Student and Teacher Safety Act of 2007

    >Requires< local educational agencies to have in effect policies that deem to be reasonable and permissible a search of any minor student on public school grounds if conducted by a full-time teacher or school official.

    This is a law MANDATING that schools have a program in place to search students.

    Up to and INCLUDING STRIP SEARCHES!!!!

    To be done by teachers!

    This is the same as the The Student and Teacher Safety Act of 2006, it is BULLSHIT!!

    Giving the schools the power to strip search kids!!!

    We don’t have enough teacher abuse in schools, now they want to make it legal???

    Anyone doing this to any of my family will pay dearly.

    Any politician voting for this will not only NOT get my vote, but I will spread the word far & wide as to what they are up to.
    I will be screaming bloody murder if this passes and I won’t stop till its revoked.

    We are displeased with your NAY vote on H.R.5749. Please be aware that unemployed Republicans in ILLINOIS won’t be voting for you or the other Republicans anymore, they will be voting for Democrats. The most upsetting idea you and your Republican Cohorts presented is that a person would be eligible for a year of unemployment benefits after working only a week! That is VERY misleading, it makes it seem like a person would be eligible for a large amount of money, when that is NOT the case. People need to know the truth. The truth is each state has eligibility requirements and stipulations for earning a certain amount in a certain period of time in order to be even eligible for any state benefits. The amount of the state benefit is only about 1/3 of your previously salary, and depends on the total amount earned while working during the look back period. Here in ILLINOIS you need to earn a minimum of $1600 in the look back period which consists of 4 quarters. Therefore a person who worked part time for one week and earned $1600 in that week would only be paid $50 a week for 26 weeks. Is $50 a full benefit to you? For this little amount of money, you and the other Republicans jeopardized this legislation, you are making millions of people continue to hurt and be desperate. We are not happy with you or the other Republicans, now your job is in jeopardy.

    Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008

    You stand by this, you are a fool and should have a D by your name. Kiss your job goodbye.

    HR 5405 The Social Security Identity Theft Prevention Act
    This bill is just an alternative for the Real ID Act. This act will not stop identity theft. I and thousands of others have had this happen to them and no social security or any identity was needed to do it. Most is done on computer and no one asked for a photo or any confirmation of identity and the companies say they are not responsible. We have a drivers license for photo and that was not even needed. Upstanding citizens should not be tracked everywhere by the government.

    This despot is the cosponsor of a bill to remove the rights of anyone suspected of disagreeing with the government, H.R. 2159. Do not forget, do not forgive. Remember this man in 2010.

    According to World Health organization 30 45 million people in Africa depend on fish for their livelihood. Fish is an indispensible source of micronutrients such as Iron, Iodine, calcium, Zinc, Vitamin A and Vitamin B African countries need. Asian carp may be the solution. Asian carp may be a blessing to 3rd world countries.

    Asian Carp Fish, Inc a Minnesota based company can help with the control of Asian Carp. The state provides the funds to commercially harvest and process the fish. We provide storage and transportation to Africa and 3rd world countries. Lots of starving people in Africa and 3rd world countries will be too happy to eat the fish. Create employment and economic growth. Our contact information

    “U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk will call for legislation Monday that would toughen drug-trafficking laws regarding a highly potent form of marijuana, with penalties of up to 25 years in prison for a first-time offense”

    What a waste of time, resources, and most importantly lives. Sending some college student to jail for 25 years for using ‘stronger’ (by who’s definition, and what references) marijuana should be a crime. This issue, along with his lack of support for HR 1207 (Audit the Fed) , leads me to believe that he is out of touch with the people he represents and reality.

    You are a disgrace to your country and to your party. You have sealed your fate by voting for Cap & Trade tonight. 2010 will be your last year in office. Enjoy it.

    Shame on you for voting to support HR 2454. By your vote you have shown that you are more interested in political “bonus points” than representing the will of the people. We elected you and pay your salary. You have forgotten that and have let us down tremendously. You will be voted out of office.

  • Curly 06/30/2009 10:50am

    Traitor! Vote this guy out.

  • waycoolsnoopy 07/08/2009 3:11pm

    Congressman Kirk:

    You are a despicable, treasonous, despot who has ZERO business representing anyone! You are a nefarious scoundrel and it would seem that a majority of your constituents agree with me. Just who the HELL are you representing, you reprehensible jackal? You voted in favor of “Crap and Trade,” You are a Co-sponsor of H.R. 2159 the, “Disagree With the Government and Lose Your Right to Bear Arms Act,” You sponsored and voted for the “Hate Crimes Bill” aka “thought crimes act” and now we see that you are sponsoring the ridiculous and UNCONSTITUTIONAL “Megan Meier CyberBullying Act!” And lest we forget your endorsement of the “put a college kid in prison for smoking pot act”

    Tell us, you exsanguinating douche-bag, are there any portions of the U.S. Constitution that you are not actively trying to eviscerate? There is a special place in hell for the likes of you, sir! For the sake of the Republic and its Citizenry, we hope you find it soon!

    AMERICANS LIVES PLACED IN HARMS WAY and the Congressman SUPPORTS IT….If you are anything of an American you will consider the call to remove this unrepresentative of the American people. In 2005 my American family whom all held American passports and American citizenship were held at gunpoint for three days by the Israelis this congressman supports. Why? merely because the Israelis would not recognize certain American citizenships. Congressman Kirk took 300K from Pro-Israel lobbyists to support the discrimination of YOU and I. I have documented proof Kirk supports discrimination of American citizens in his foriegn policy. Sick but true and more should know about it.

    Supporting Israeli war crimes, accepting 300k from a foriegn nation giving bribe money through a group called Pro-Israel to this corrupt politicia. In my opinion is committed similar to supporting a terrorist group when that politician is fully aware that the foreign nation group is actively supporting the discrimination and terrorization of American citizens. Mr. Kirk is fully aware of the Extremist Israelis threatening American citizens just because of the American citizens origin and restricting movement of those American citizens based solely on their origin is something THE USA IS TOTALLY AGAINST. Kirk Supports such discrimination of Americans when accepting money from such criminal acts inflicted upon American citizens by Israeli extremists in the West Bank where they have occupied and confiscated with military force.

    Your position on Cap and tax, and AWG have turned me from a supporter to a dissenter. I will not vote for you again till you regain your common sense. If you don’t believe AWG (anthropogenic global warming) is a fraud, you do not have the intelligence or common sense to represent the people.

    Vote yes for H.R 2296 BATFE Reform.

    This bill corrects some misinterpretations by the BATFE which have resulted in problems in the past. This bill currently has wide bipartisan support so I am requesting you support it also.

    Dear Congressman Kirk,

    h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral consequences for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again—h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

  • amark 11/30/2010 2:29pm

    Mr. Kirk,
    I am ashamed of you. For a moment we had hope that we had some opposition to the Chicago machine. Your Yes vote for S510 is NOT in the best interest of the American people. You haven’t even been sworn in for 24 hours and you’ve already stabbed us in the back. This bill is in the interest of big money and farm control. It will destroy the small farmer and you all know it. It was bad enough that Durbin sponsored the law and here you go falling in line. Thanks a lot from Downstate. Oh yeah, you’re familiar with this area! You’ve got all the “big time” farmers on your side but forget the ones that voted for you in hopes to keep the family farm in tact. I voted for you and now you’ve punched me in the gut the first day. It won’t matter to any of you in DC I suppose when the rest of us are in food line from your inflated food prices. We don’t take any hand outs from the government and don’t intend to. So any new “program” you vote for won’t help me feed my family.
    Thanks a lot

  • Duck_Limbaugh 12/01/2010 12:59pm

    Mr. Kirk,

    I should be ashamed of myself for wasting my vote! Here I thought that you turning Conservative but you’re nothing but a S.O.B. R.I.N.O.! Never again! Might as well have voted Democrap!
