With Senate voice mail boxes full and fax machines running
out of paper....National anti-Alito activities were off to
a great start this weekend....political ramp-up since John
Kerry announced the filibuster on Thursday evening has
been through the roof...

Those receiving these messages should reach out to
friends and relatives who are not as connected on
the internet and to alternate news sources.   Don't assume
that these folks will know what is going on without taking
efforts to explain the situation, why Alito is such a bad choice
and what is at stake with this nomination to the U.S.
Supreme Court.   You can't rely on crap mainstream media
and know just how bad Alito is....

Judge Alito is a radical right wing judicial activist ....kind of
a cleaned up Judge Bork...who believes and publicly stated that the U.S.
Constitution should be viewed through the eyes of
18th century males.....the framers who were land-owning
males....at a time when blacks were slaves, women were without the
vote and only land owners could vote.

Keep the pressure on Levin until you here he announces support for
the Alito filibuster.
