What you can do this week

I'm glad that I belong to groups like the NRA and Grassroots NC--they do a good job of keeping me up to date on important news when I don't have time to do it myself.

This time around, I missed that the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General has passed out of committee. JR at A Keyboard and a .45 has a very informative post on the subject that notes only dissenting votes were John Cornyn (R-TX) and Tom Coburn (R-OK). If either of these fine gentlemen represent you, you need to email them a big thank you, along with this week's "What You Can Do".

This week, you need to email both of your Senators. As with the email campaign during the Judicial Committee hearings, tailor your message to the likely hot buttons of your target. Urge them to filibuster this nomination.

Remember, this is a two-fer. We're out to keep a dedicated foe of our Second Amendment civil rights out of the Attorney General's office, and we're trying to send a smackdown to the Big O. both are worthy goals deserving of your time.
