WHERE:

WHO:

  • Representatives of groups/organizations (with 100 or more voters) should visit these Senators'/Representatives' offices in person.

HOW:
Demand a prompt written response to the following urgent issues by USA Congress and the following legislative actions:

  • UNCAP AND DRILL U.S.A. OIL WELLS: By 4/17/2008 US Senate, and by 4/18/2008, US House, should pass a bill providing a "price-support" (tax credits, etc.) of $25 to $30/barrel of oil and $4.00/1,000 cu. ft. of natural gas; and that adds incentives to increase U.S. oil refinery capacity. This would prevent OPEC monopoly (CARTEL) from dropping its prices below these price supports to stop or greatly reduce U.S. domestic oil/natural gas production, as it did at $10.00/barrel in 1998. President Bush should sign this bill by 4/21/2008, and it should require him to have his Departments of Interior, Agriculture, and Bureau of Land Management on 4/22/2008 to start proper increased leases for oil/natural gas production on most or all of Federal Lands in several western states (e.g. Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico) and other USA states, especially on Gull Island and other parts of Alaska's North Slope Petroleum Reserve separately west of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). One to three months after President Bush signs this bill, these actions should greatly start increasing our domestic oil/natural gas reproduction from private and federal the lands in these USA states and off-shore in Gulf of Mexico and USA West and Southeast Coast waters - ESPECIALLY from ALASKA'S LONG-CAPPED Gull Island Well. In a year or so. this should reduce our oil imports from 60% to 20% or so (most from Mexico) of our oil consumption, with NO IMPORTS from IRAQ MIDEAST/OPEC monopoly. Exports of Alaskan/Other USA oil and natural gas production should be prohibited.

Common Sense Solution of Illegal Immigration Problems

1. To determine their cause and then logically determine the best solution for them.

2. Illegal immigrants are causing great insecurity (including possible terrorist dangers), economic and other serious harm to USA citizens. By far the main cause of these serious problems to USA citizens is the very terrible income/general economic conditions for the large majority of the populations of Mexico and numerous other 3rd World/"Underdeveloped" countries.

Agribusiness Examiner - Congress Passes, Clinton Prepares to Sign Annual Freedom to Farm Bill Bailout Money

Excerpt from The Agribusiness Examiner, Issue # 76, June 1, 2000

CONGRESS PASSES, CLINTON PREPARES TO SIGN ANNUAL FREEDOM TO FARM BILL BAILOUT MONEY

Congress has passed and Bill Clinton is expected to sign a $15 billion package of farm assistance --- including $5.5 billion in direct payments that would reach farmers by September 30, in the midst of the congressional campaigns --- to compensate growers for a third straight year of low commodity prices and to allow growers to buy cheaper crop insurance.

...

Yet, as Abner Deatherage, a retired U.S. foreign service officer who lives in Prairie Village, Kansas and James D. Baldwin, a former rancher from Independence, Missouri and chairman of Local 249 Retiree Chapter of the United Auto Workers, rightfully pointed out in a recent Kansas City Star op-ed essay, "these bailouts are unsatisfactory -- many farmers are underpaid while some are overpaid.

"Also, bailouts are uncertain and cost taxpayers substantially more than would a dependable, fair permanent price support program. A basically reformed foreign policy --- especially its unconstitutional trade element --- is keenly needed. United States agricultural and other exports must recover and increase under a rational, mutually beneficial trade policy," they add.
