    •  via email (2+ / 0-)

      I was going to email Andy Harris (R-MD) about this, but when I went to his website, there is this cute little disclaimer above the fields where one is meant to put one's name and email address: "Regrettably, I am unable to reply to any email from persons outside of the district."

      "Regrettably, I am unable to reply to any email from persons outside of the district."

      What do you mean, you're "unable to reply"? How is that sort of dodge even allowed!??!

      •  Many do this now. I have trouble writing (0+ / 0-)

        to other members of the Oregon delegation outside my district.  Don't like it either.

        They are trying to reduce the volumes they get when a call goes out about a topic, like, oh, this one.

        Science is hell bent on consensus. Dr. Michael Crichton said “Let’s be clear: The work of science has nothing to do with consensus... which is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right,”

      •  You could try here: (0+ / 0-)

        http://science.house.gov/...  This is the subcommittee in question that Harris chairs.  The contact link on that page is for the committee over Harris' subcommittee, but should work fine for voicing vociferous disapproval.

      •  Send email anyway - to the reps and the committee (0+ / 0-)

        When the subject is about a committee, I usually go to house.gov and select the Committees pull-down selection. Each committee is required to provide a web site and most of them provide a way to contact the committee. Some provide a way to contact each subcommittee and each member.

        This one is run by asshole Republicans who don't seem to care about this sort of thing.

        Some of the committee web sites are set up for the majority party only. Maybe you'll see a link to the "Democrat" members. Maybe.

        These jerks are functionally useless.

        I expect an automated boilerplate "regrets" reply to email from Democrats at a minimum. Sometimes I get a personalized reply. I've even been called to chat about the issue with a staffer. It depends on the issue, obviously.

        I expect nothing from Republicans. I have gotten one reply EVER from a Republican. EVER. In my lifetime. But I don't enclose cash in the envelope. Maybe that's all it takes.
