More on DREAM Act

In my last post, I said that you need to call your Senators and tell them to vote against the DREAM Act.

I just realized the most important thing to say in such a call: "this is a more important issue to me than keeping the Bush tax rates."

Make certain your Senators know how high a priority this particular issue is.

By the way, if your Senator is one of these:

Sen. Pryor (D)

Sen. LeMieux (R)

Sen. Collins (R)
Sen. Snowe (R)

Sen. Brown (R)

Sen. Nelson (D)

Sen. Hagan (D)

then they have already been converted to a "NO" vote. IF you call them, do it to thank them, not to harangue them on how to vote.

That is all.

Just Say "NO!" to DREAM Act

Remember to call your Senators and Representatives and to tell them to vote "NO!" on the DREAM Act amnesty.

Also, consider signing up for NumbersUSA action alerts, and to send free faxes to your elected officials.

That is all.

I Hate Exxon Mobil

Recently I got a Mobil credit card because it offered a $50 restaurant.com dining certificate (and a second if I bought more than 100 gallons of gas), figuring that I could use it to get some restaurant gift cards.

It turns out that all the gift card can be used to do is to purchase coupons that have tons of restrictions on them.

The dirty S.O.B.s got me to get their credit card by offering me something worthless. "Fill your plate," indeed.

While the offer I am sure does not meet the legal definition of fraud, it is morally dishonest to call it a "fill your plate" offer, as if what they were offering was free gift cards rather than, in essence, free coupons.

I have decided not to buy any more gas from Mobil and to boycott even their convenience stores to the extent it is possible to do so.

And I have decided to complain about it online, beccuse I have not seen anyone else do it yet.

At least all I lost was about 400 points on my Sears Citibank Mastercard (by not buying gas using it instead of the Mobil card - I got about 66 gallons before I realized how useless to me the gift card was).

That is all.
