Skip to comments.Senate Coverage -- (May '05)

Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).
So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and I'll try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.
If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let me know.
Here's a few helpful links.
C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.
C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.
C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.
C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.
OR FEDNET has online feed also.
A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).
THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]
Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Senate Majority and Senate Minority
And Monthly Calendars for the House Majority and Roll Call Votes can be found here.
The Founders' Constitution
THE WHITE HOUSE
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
2:00 p.m.: Convene and resume consideration of H.R. 3, the Highway bill.
Clean up on aisle 17.
Bring a large bucket.
I wish the admins could delete that from the "My comments" page, it is taken out of the thread, but stays there.
I'll be disabling loading images in FIREFOX for awhile.
He has done that on several threads. I have sent 'report abuse' on several. That is just sick!
My answer would be to post to a lot of threads quckly to put it as far back as possible.
Eventually the picture will be removed from the host, anyway.
The wacko is an unbelievable loser. Completely undeserving of even a nanosecond of your time.
Cockroaches are far more worthy.
There were some folks back in late 2000 that were using HTML scripting to try make threads unusable by making the text? the same color as the background? Was a major pain in the backside, no pun intended...
What's really sick is this is about the third time he's done it. It's gone well beyond a "prank". This person needs to be put away!
I don't think anyone is at home right now.
We're on our own.
yep hes posted this to 15 threads last time i checked
It might like that.
I don't think it is directed just to certain groups. It is an attack on Freerepublic and someone needs to get serious about taking care of this problem.
BTW- If I am being attacked for being "color blind", James 54( today), these photos are not going to make me change my stand. I could care less about your little photos- please get some help I am sure there are some people somewhere who love you and will help you.
This is WAY beyond.
