Below is a copy of an open letter to a Maine Senator that I just sent out to the news paper in Augusta, our Maine capital.   

 I feel it is not enough to send letters to our politicians and to call them when a grievance arises; but by publishing open letters to your Senators and Congress persons in state news papers you are more likely to get their attention.  It is also important when they cast a vote against the Trump overreaches to acknowledge your support.

I urge you to Resistance publish.

An open letter to Senator Susan Collins.

I really appreciate your vote against Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.  As a retired school teacher and principal I readily concur that she was and is unqualified for the position.

Your willingness to cross party lines and vote your principles is the reason I willingly cross my party line and vote for you, though I am a registered Democrat. 

I was disappointed in your vote for Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, as I feel his racist background was disqualifying. 

I would ask that you take a close look at the nominee for Supreme Court Justice and that he is well vetted before deciding to cast your vote.  

This is a new era we face; and rest assured politicians will be held accountable for all their votes when the results of this new regime is tallied.

Feel free to use any part in composing a letter for publication to your state's Senators. 

We also resist that stay at home
the Ol'Buzzard


  1. you actually think they care what we think?

  2. Probably not ...
    but it's worth a try..
    Nil desperundum carborundum
    Don't let the bastards grind ya down ...
    Cheers, and best wishes;
    from us dingbats in Australia.
