    Impressive system (slightly creepy perhaps). Put phone number in and within seconds my home phone was ringing with an automated message from someone at Today We Fight Back. He gave instructions that I'd be connected to Sen Gillibrand's office and a script to read from, adding that when I was finished to hit that * key to be connected next to my congresswoman.

    I held the line, and was forced to listen to very regal classical music, that made me feel like I was standing in front of the House of Habsburg instead of waiting to speak with someone from my democratically-elected representative's office. Fittingly, I suppose, the empress wasn't in and neither were the other imperial nobles and the phone just rang an rang until it ended with a busy signal.

    The aristocratic corporatocracy doesn't take calls from rabble such as thee, I thought to myself.

      Has she spoken anout the nsa at all?
      She tends to fly under the radar...

    •  I used the system @ 0745 CST (0+ / 0-)

      and it worked perfectly.  Calls went right through to both Senators (unfortunately through to VM) and Representative (VM was full!)

      I also did the email thing.

      Since one of my Senators limited emails to 500 characters (yup, 3.57x a twitter account?!?!) I doubt the email to him will actually go through.

      For bonus points, guess from which party this dumbed-down Senator hails.
      (Republican - RoJo of Wisconsin, the oft cited dumbest sitting US Senator.)
