Animals have Feelings, Animals have Faces, Animals have Families

I've been quite an animal lover for basically all my life.... the last few years even more so.  With Face Book I get feeds from a lot of animal lover, animal rights organizations and I really relate to that.  In my job that I recently retired from as Customer Service Representative at the IRS for Tax Exempt organizations, I dealt with a lot of people trying to help, save, shelter cats, dogs, horses, etc... I was glad of that...

I've started a face book page with the name mentioned above... please visit if you feel like it... scroll down for various pictures, videos and stories....

I think that gerrymandering is really one of the bigger single problems with the US Government, and, something that is easily correctable.  I also think it’s questionable whether gerrymandering is Constitutional or not.  Probably, like a lot of what is done in/by Congress, it’s never been challenged.

Congressional Districts should be established by Population and Geography, and really nothing else.  Gerrymandering to make districts “Safe” for a particular party just doesn’t seem legitimate.


Congress Shutting Down the U.S. Government and the Debt Ceiling.

I Sent following to Dept of Justice (DOJ) 21 September 2013.

Concerning Congress Shutting Down the U.S. Government and the Debt Ceiling.

I expect that Congress has no true authority or right to intentionally shut down the U.S. Gov’t.  Not "Intentionally" by decision, especially not for Political Purpose.

Same for the Debt Ceiling.  I’ll bet, that the Debt Ceiling itself is unconstitutional and that Congress would have no true authority or right to default on the U.S. Debt. Again, not "Intentionally" and especially not for Political Purpose!

However, I expect that neither of these subjects have ever been challenged; and I think they should be. 

I’ve been trying, without success, to get a response and more significantly, start a national dialogue on this subject.  I’ve tweeted many in the media and U.S. Representatives. No responses.

I wish someone would address this.

I added/edited the above just a bit, but, just for enhancement. The main gist of the argument is that Congress can't do something like that "Intentionally" and for Political Purpose.  Another angle is that, I think the argument should be made that Congress is elected to facilitate the functioning of Government.  Not their prerogative to shut it down; same w/debt ceiling.
This is basically a second entry, follow-up to a post I made quite a while ago called "Default by Design" July 15 2011.  Scroll down.
