    I'm sure others will have linked to Act Blue, but if not, there it is.  Act Blue has set up a significant fund to defeat members of Congress who have supported the bill and telecom immunity in the next election. It doesn't take more than a couple of bucks from each of us.  Money, as well we know, talks -- and it positively screams to any member of Congress who sees hundreds of thousands of dollars being raised to defeat him or her in the next election.

      I didn't know they had set up a special fund, but that's good and I'll contribute to it.

        ...but has really taken off in just the last 10 days or so.  The first few days saw an INCREDIBLE amount of fundraising (I once watched $10K raised in an hour).  Donations have tapered off now.  So tell everyone you know who has even a remote chance to contribute to this thing, and ask each of them to do the same.  Ten bucks apiece from 100,000 donors -- not unrealistic when you consider Kos alone gets 600,000 hits daily -- is... well, you can do the math.

        Let's get on this!
