This is my favorite book kiddies. "My Pet Goat"
A no vote by Mr. Gordon, TN 6th district congressman, on H.R. 1913 - the Hate Crime Bill, may mean that he heard a few voices on April 15, "Bye Bye Bart."
By turning towards the right I mean voting according to the constitution. Voting this way once does not make him a strict Constitutionalist. Pelosi and his other 'leaders' will see that he doesn't go too far astray.
Of course this was a safe vote in going against Democratic majority. It wasn't close and they'll let him slide on this one if it saves Bart a few votes in 2010. The loyal 'old hands' have to stick together.
Let's see which way he goes when the vote may be close and his vote would be seen as crucial.
His handlers will coach him.
Bart responded to my email asking him to vote no on HR 1913.
Thank you for sharing your opposition to H.R. 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Hearing from you helps me better represent Middle Tennessee.
Like you, I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment and its protections. I voted against this bill because I do not believe in special treatment for any group of people. All citizens are equal under the law and should be treated the same. H.R. 1913 passed the House on April 29, and now goes to the Senate for consideration.
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this important issue. Please do not hesitate to call on me if I may ever be of assistance to you and your family.
Stay in touch,
Member of Congress
H.R. 1913.....that's the same year the Federal Reserve came into being.
What about your vote on H.R. 1207 , the Federal Reserve Transparency Act..... Bart.
There's also H.R. 875, and 1816.
And these are just a few of the 'critical' votes you have to think about.
We remember your vote on the bailout Bart. It wasn't pretty.
