Just figured I’d share this tidbit of correspondence. I can’t imagine he’d get a response actually addressing his concerns. Begich makes it a habit of completely ignoring his constituents comments, unless they agree with his position. (My previous emails and his responses are case and point).
Dear Senator Begich,
I just read your comments in today’s Anchorage Daily News regarding health care. I take issue with your comment: “I think we’ve had enormous floor debate that’s been public and transparent.”
I agree that there has been public floor debate, however, I don’t consider anything in the entire process to have been transparent, as far as how the bill will actually affect everyday Americans. As a registered independent voter from the State of Alaska, I believe your comments, although they adhere to your party’s idea of transparency, to be somewhat less than opaque. I’m sure I don’t need to go into detail as to why I believe your comment is disingenuous at best, and actually approaches reprehensibility. Town hall meetings, emails and phone calls notwithstanding
This health care bill is an absolute monstrosity, in my opinion, and although I know you plan to vote for it, I am compelled to share my opinion and this last item: I assure you that come the next election cycle when the Republicans nominate someone to run against you, my support, both financially and otherwise, will be behind your opponent. For no other reason than that you will have voted Yes for the most insidious piece of legislation I’ve ever seen Congress actually vote on.
Proud to be married to this man, an American and look forward to being part of some hope and change we can believe in, the next election and many more thereafter!
Until Next Time!

My email today to Mark Begich, the senator from Alaska. I’ll call too.
I am writing as your constituent to demand that you vote no to the health care legislation.
Your vote will dramatically affect your political career in Alaska. I will personally contribute some of my income to any party running against you or the Democratic party. I will devote my time to any such campaign against you or the democratic party as well. I had a great time making phone calls for Scott Brown.
I, like so many people, have had enough force feeding of the health care issue. I agree health care is a concern. It falls under individual states to address issues not outlined in the constitution , not the federal government.
I demand that before you vote on any piece of health care legislation you READ it out loud to your constituents in Alaska, via television and radio. Heck we have streaming audio as we are a very connected state. You explain in detail how you agree with each piece of the legislation. Sounds like a lot of work? Well, that’s your job.
Care to meet and discuss it with me?
I am fed up…

So, as I sat watching a commercial today, I was struck by the profound message the Hidden Valley Ranch commercial had. Not just to make Hidden Valley Ranch topping for potatoes, but the underlying message. Apparently the mother in the commercial, her son would only eat potatoes. So to vary it up, the mother decided to put ranch and bacon on it to liven things up.
Now, that just sickens me. Kids who dictate the dinner table are the kind of kids that will dictate our future. The lack of rounded individuals abounds. Ever present are the kind of kids and adults who have whined until they ate nothing but (potatoes, mac and cheese, pizza, chicken nuggets etc.) for dinner. We are breeding a generation of people who base their decisions in life on lower level needs–decisions based on pleasure or approval. Higher level decision making happens less and less, the focus on making decisions considering others and community have fallen by the wayside.
Because of this decision making style and bribery that is the modus operandi for so many American homes, I believe that the egregious bribery that is running rampant in our United States Senate, the purchase of Ben Nelson’s vote for example, is not viewed as disgusting and unethical as it is. The “What’s in it for me” or “The I’ll do for you if you do for me” is viewed as normal and an effective way to making decisions for dinner as it is for buying votes in the Senate. How can this even be constitutional?
Americans need to stand up and shout, take a hard look at themselves and how they expect the world around them to be and REFUSE to accept this way of thinking in our homes and Senate!
I say no to making mac and cheese every night at dinner because my kids won’t eat anything else. This just begets further problems. My children will be the first to exclaim they want a steamed artichoke or brussel sprouts. They eat things ranging from spicy Thai to a savory curry from India! This would not be possible if I had given them mac and cheese or chicken nuggets every day. Each day I expected them to try new things have an open mind and go out of their comfort zone.
These and many more reasons are why I am very proud of my kids. They are respectful more than other kids I see. When they are not, it’s for things that are quite normal for kids and NOT the kind of lip you hear so many teens these days. I am raising some fabulous conservative kids, with a healthy dose of care for others in society.
The American people need to look deeply at what is going on the United States Senate and put a stop to this unethical, disgusting behavior. Bribery and force feeding–if you must do this, can it possibly be the right thing to do? Take a minute and think. Hold a tea party, write your Senators and call for serious repercussions for this foul behavior. It is NOT acceptable and will not be tolerated!
Until next time!
P.S. I would love to get more comments! Feel free to comment, is always great to hear from you!
