    Please accept my comments regarding H.R. 227, a bill to define “life” by embarrassingly puerile, fanatical whimsy. Any marginally educated individual knows that viable life is not even a plausibility before, at the barest minimum, five months’ gestation.

    “Bills” such as H.R. 227 are reprehensible in the extreme – they represent the most frivolous, mercenary improvidence of taxpayer funds and Congressional time imaginable.

    Those politicians who claim to believe in the sanctity of human life would do well to spend their time – and my money – protecting it as defined by educated exemplars. That means extant life of all genders, races, creeds, nationalities, and orientations.

    I kindly urge you to not only vote against H.R. 227, but to convey to supporters my outrage at the time and funds being frittered on such ludicrous fringe bills. Ethical individuals with any respect for life – not to mention themselves – will use their positions to aid those living, breathing individuals who are suffering right now, and stop misappropriating time and money on chimerical delusions.

    Thank you for your consideration and attention to this matter.

    Mr. Bingaman;
    I am fearful that you introduced S-22 with tunnel vision; possibly to satisfy just a few good friends.

    Have you considered the following: The biggest abusers of paleontological resouces are BLM, the oil and gas companies. As I watch the BLM work; they have approved the destruction of a large portion of the Cherokee Trail in the Powder basin area of WY; they have approved the destruction of tepee rings for a road in SW WY; they have approved the positioning of a well between two sacred monuments; he fossil beds have been upended; and they are slowly developing approximately 2000 miles of roads; rigs; wells. The BLM approved the abandonment of open tailings from coal bed gas; which, by the way; was next to a camp of both petrified woods; and approximately 50 fire pots.

    What are your penalties for stupidity of the BLM; and, as the oil and gas companies are doing the actual destrution; how will you penalize them.

    What are your thoughts behind this ignorance.

    Sen. Bingaman

    This comment is to ask you to support HR 17 and to oppose HR 45. If your staff has not informed you of these two bills I recommend that you have your staff look into them immediately. It may be a while before they come out of committee but foreknowledge of these issues will be important to you. I am already taking steps to bring both of these bills to the public light so you can expect to hear about them soon. Simply put they are arms bills. HR 17 defends the rights of americans to own and use firearms in their own defence while it also protects citizens from prosecution for using a firearm to defend themselves, their property or their family and the second restricts the rights of americans to have or own firearms. Both are under the radar at this time but expect them to surface quickly. With the current American dissatisfaction in our government these bills may make or break your next election.

    Regards…… Mark K. Sneed, Private citizen, Honored Veteran

    A vote FOR the cloture to proceed HR 3590 is a vote AGAINST you when your term is up.

    Mr Bingaman

    Being the Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee you should be aware of “CLIMATEGATE!”
    The amount of emails and documents released is fantastic, it shows how THE CARBON TAX is a huge criminal conspiracy to defraud all of us Humans!
    If you move to further this disaster of a HOAX, YOU ARE A CRIMINAL LIAR AND TRAITOR to your own constituency!

    Stop this Health care bill written by Big Pharma!
    Speaking of Big Pharma, It is now clear the H1N1 was a Fraud by Big Pharma who pressured WHO to level 5 and 6 which cost communities millions of dollars.
    It was Criminal behavior to scare us into level 6 pandemic mandates!

    We will be watching in total disappointment, anger and shame over your votes and choices like the evil manipulator Bernanke you voted for after the LOOTING
    disaster (still going), TARP,after disaster threats and fear tactics, and the LIES!
    Bernanke and now Geithner has brought our people theft and misery, and you are FOR this…. WOW!

    If you are apart of the American unemployed or share the same views as the unemployed and want to have a peaceful march on Washington to show that we do need our unemployment or in support of unemployment, email me at This has to be done, a peaceful stand needs to take place soon to make a difference. Before a lot of Americans lose the little bit that they do have. We didn’t ask for the economy to be this way and it is not our fault that we can not find jobs all at the same time. We worked all of our lives and now that we need help, the people in congress is saying no! We are the ones that help pay for wars, national disasters, and the congressmen paychecks. Now they are telling us that they cannot pass a bill so we can feed and house our families. What is more important the “Oil Spill” or the unemployed and their children. I don’t think so, it’s time for a peaceful march, email me at, to make a peaceful stand now.

    Dear Senator Bingaman,
    S.3520 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 ramifications for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again— S.3520 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

    as the head of the committee on energy and natural resources it’s important that you look ahead for long term solutions. HR1831 – the industrial hemp act does just that. by removing industrial hemp (which contains minute amounts of THC) from a scheduled drug you will be encouraging an entirely new industry with the potential for millions of jobs as well as a sustainable source for all kinds of textiles and fuel. please, i urge you to vote yes on HR1831.
