Briefly, someone posted some of Lautenberg’s thoughts on gun control on his Facebook page. And the pro-gun comments just keep rolling in. And the wonderful thing is – they are free!
Going through old clippings, looking for reports on the Cherry Hill Massacre in Lautenberg’s home state, I found a telephone bill from 1969. A ten minute call to my Congressman was $4.10. Forty one cents a minute, without the taxes. That was the equivalent of $25.09 in Obama’s mini-bux. And yes, I was lobbying against another threat to our gun rights.
Today, a Skype call is zip, de nada, regardless of duration. My telephone supplier (NOT AT&T!!) will make a ten minute call to anywhere in the Continental US for 30 2011 pennies. Thirty cents. Fourteen cents less than the current price of a three cent stamp.
Of course, I could just E-mail Congressman Critter and Senators Hippopygous and Callipygous stating my support or objection. But since I would only get an unsatisfactory form letter expressing their concern that I am concerned, I find free or almost free telephone calls much more satisfactory.
Personally, given the price of a telephone call, I would call Lautenberg’s office and express my sentiments. Politely and courteously, of course. I might even try not to slip and call His Majesty Senator Calcipygous. Because Senator Bonyass fits Lautenberg to a T.
“Hippo” is Greek for horse.
“Calli” is Greek for fat or protruding.
“pygeous” is Greek for the part of the anatomy that generally makes contact with a chair.
And I will let you put hippo and pygeous together.
