By Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist
Dear Mr. Campbell (Under the mistaken assumption that I view her as my senator. Her mailing list is a riot to be on as you will see in her plea below.)
We have long known that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which enshrines discrimination against same-sex couples in our law, should be repealed. (Who’s we, are Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer hiding with lobbyists in your pocket?)
Many of us have fought to make the rights and responsibilities of marriage available to every couple on an equal basis. (Would you please advise where in the Bill of Rights marriage between anything other that a man or a woman in a “right?”) (Is traditional marriage a right or a ceremony held in terms of the Judeo-Christian ethic between a man and a woman with attendant obligations.)
Sixteen years ago, I was one of only 14 Senators to vote no on the DOMA — a vote I was very proud to have cast. (It’s safe to say the small minority that owns you were just as proud as you were.)
(Cut the nonsense Senator a “legal union” provides the same benefits. The majority of Californians do not favor same sex marriage – you are sounding like Obama.)
It’s a safe bet that you will be replaced by Elizabeth Emken. (See Elizabeth on the issues) Unlike you, she will represent the entire State of California and the United States and the next US Senator from the Golden State. She won’t be hurting CA and the US as you did in choosing the delta smelt over people, jobs, and an estimated $3 billion financial loss to the state. Elizabeth Emken won’t spend a moment of time dealing with your “fringe issues.” She is focused on,
Government Spending and Budget, Economic Growth, Accountability in Washington, and The Second Amendment, all ideas so foreign to you.
For over a decade Elizabeth Emken has served as an advocate for developmentally disabled children, most recently as Vice President for Government Relations at Autism Speaks, the Nation’s largest science and advocacy organization devoted to the public health emergency of autism.
Before becoming active with the autism issue, Elizabeth served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S. – helping streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of dollars.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
With that resume and having never worked in the private sector seems to make you and your ideas out of touch doesn’t it? In the end, nearing 79 years of age, this June 22nd, you will look back and thank her because you have been constant in one area only. You are “Too Long” and “Too Wrong” to continue to be a U.S. Senator representing the Great State of California.
And with President Obama’s historic statement in support of marriage equality, we have an unprecedented opportunity to match his bold words with grassroots action. (Come on Dianne, he was forced into this entire mess by Mr. “multiple feet in his mouth, “Joe, I’m just one heart beat away from the presidency Biden.
(This is among many reasons why you will be defeated Mrs. Feinstein.) (Your votes mimic the constituents that have you in their pockets. Be they the LGBT community, environmentalists that believe in the “all of the above” strategy when it comes to develop energy, oddly that doesn’t include oil which you continually castigate for their “profits”)
Now — while we have the momentum — is the time to repeal DOMA and win a historic victory for equality in America. Please click here to make a bold statement of your own by signing our petition to end marriage discrimination. Watch the momentum wane as Obama backs away from this faster than Michael Jackson could “ Moon Walk”
(Sorry my new make believe friend, that’s just not going to happen)
It has taken time for our movement to build the momentum necessary to get this far. But one by one, my fellow Senators have joined me in support of my effort to repeal DOMA. One by one, Americans have raised their voices to speak out against this discriminatory law. (One by one, we’ve committed ourselves to equality for our LGBT friends, family members, and neighbors. And one by on they will be ordering a U-Hall along with you come December.)
And now, with your support, we have a chance to make historic progress. (Before you fall in line as the follower that you are in you attempt to define deviancy downward, I suggest you look at the role homosexuality played in the fall of the Roman Empire.
(As a favor to America before you depart, would you consider reading the Constitution? O.K., even I will admit that The U.S. Constitution is not on the preferred reading list or your progressive friends.) In fact their continual attack upon it adds another reason that I’m putting the phone number for U-Hall here. 1-800-468-4285 is 1-800-go-u-haul)
President Obama’s words have given this movement great momentum and provided us with an opportunity to take a stand. (As you well know, President Obama’s words are of little value, that’s a nice way of stating don’t go betting your house on it.)
The time is always right to fight for equality. But there’s never been a better time to move forward with repealing DOMA than right now. (Wake up woman, enough with the nonsense. Even you must know that repealing a bill would need 60 votes in the 100-member Senate, and sponsors acknowledged the votes aren’t there. The measure would have no chance in the House, controlled by conservative Republicans.)
(Why am I left with a nagging feeling that this was just a way for you to raise money for your failing campaign?)
Thank you for helping me move this country forward. (Well I did the best I could to help you Mrs. Feinstein, now that we are friends you may call me Jim.)
