    Emanuel Cleaver says: Are we elected to monitor where our constituents are … or are we to use our best judgment to do what’s in the best interests of our constituents.

    So what he’s saying is: My constituents are too stupid to know what’s best for them, so I’ll fill that void by “representing” them according to what I think is best for them.

    Congressman Cleaver. I have a lot of respect for you because this is not a light decision you have to take. This is so important, that would change the course of a nation for 4 years because it’s not about race or gender but asking ourselves, who’s really proving to me it’s the best candidate, with real solutions to all the problems our country confront right now? I’m with you. Senator Hillary Clinton has expressed the best solutions!

    If you have the chance to vote on H.J.Res.41 please vote Aye!

    As a citizen of the United States, and a Resident of the State of Missouri, I respectfully DEMAND that you return any fund raising donations to your campaign received from any corporation or company which has received TARP funds “Bailout” monies.

    I did not agree with companies like “AIG” issuing contractual bonuses to employees with TARP funds, NOR to I agree with anyone in Congress or the Senate, in fact ANY public official taking a ‘donation’ to their campaign from any company currently being funded by ‘bailout’ monies of ANY kind including “TARP” funds.

    If you have recieved monies of this sort from any company or corporation please return 100% of it to the company or corporation IMMEDIATELY!

    Please also introduce a BILL in congress which requires the same of all other Elected officials within the United States so that they may NOT ACCEPT donations from such ‘bailed out’ companies or corporations.

    See Continued Comment…

    …Continued from Previous comment…
    Accepting such funds equates to accepting a ‘kick back’ from companies you may have voted bailout, with the Tax Payer Burdening the weight.

    This simply is NOT right, and should be made ILLEGAL! It is a CLEAR violation of a conflict of interest. The interest being that of the People whom you represent vs. the need for you to fund your campaigns.

    Please return immediately any funds you have received from these organizations, and no not accept anymore at least until the ‘bailed out’ companies have restored the funds they have accepted from “TARP”.

    Please also make every effort to encourage legislation in this regard, and please pressure your peers to do the same.

    H.R. 1444 ‘Congressional Commission on Civic Service Act’ Sec 4.b.6

    “(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”

    Please VOTE TO STRIKE THIS TEXT from H.R. 1444 prior to any further motion on this bill.

    Please vote Aye for H.R. 1207 – “Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009” It is about time we have an Audit of the Private institution which calls itself ‘The FEDERAL Reserve" don’t you think?

  • dlbysr44 09/07/2009 2:08pm

    I agree with Tim Havens support of H.R. 1207. Although I am weary of the fallout of the revelations the audit might bring, it is the only way to bring change to such a monopoly as the “Federal Reserve.”

    I am not a Libitarian. I am not a idoliser of Milton Freedman economics. I believe in public schools. I do not want any public infrastructure privatised. But right now (until people wake up & get active) the government (us) is paying the banks back “debt” in perpetuity. And government contracts are not always open for bid. And now U.S. tax dollars are paying corporate aristocrats in Germany! Somehow…it has to stop.

    Dear Rep. Emanuel Cleaver,

    I read an article written by Betsy Shea-Taylor in the Attleboro Sun Chronicle dated 11/22/2009. She wrote about your Complaint Free Wednesday. I loved the idea. Have a peaceful, safe and Happy Holiday Season.

    Sincerely,

    I just read where Eric Holder and a member of the IRS will be explaining to black pastors what they can and cannot say to protect 501c3 status as churchs and still tell the flocks vote obama. My problem with this is: No true Christian can vote for a baby killing anti God candidate and expect God to EVER hear Their prayers! I have had a lot of respect for you but after reading this I am done. We cannot put race over God and thats all this is, wether he pays off your B of A loan or not shouldnt matter to a Man of God. Obama is a peon next to a called man of God. I know you cannot do this and expect your prayers to be answered and deep down you know this. The head rush of the attention and money may be to much for you to bear and you may fall but please do not drag your flock with you. OUR Bible says when a Fool is in power the people suffer! Obama is a failed experiment not because he’s black but because his only experience is buying votes w/taxpayers money. Dont let a peon influence you
