Committee Positions

110th Congress ƒàτçàτ ρòlìτìçš       There has been a lot of noise about the Blue Dogs and the new conservative Democrats elected this november.   When you actually take a look at who will be heading the important House Committees, it is plain to see the progressives are in full evidence.

This list was at Booman's Diary at DailyKos but it had no links embedded.   I added links to the Committee Websites, the Reps' Websites and an info page at

There are efforts underway at DailyKos ( Congressional Committees Project ... please join us! ) to monitor these committees and present real time info to the web on legislation and it's status.   Through involved activism like this we will be able to keep a close eye on what is being done in our name.

This information has been available for quite some time but do you really stay actively engaged with the progress and quantity...?   Most of the time we involve ourselves with specific bills that interest us.   We need to move beyond that and focus on the broad picture of what is happening in these critical days to follow in January. is another site brought on line to help us stay in touch.   It has received endorsements from MYDD's kid oakland.   A Complete Listing of Congressional Committees can be a very useful tool found at Contacting the Congress along with tons of other info.

Anti War Politics - The 21st Century Peace Movement

30,000 weblogs. One Day. One Voice.
When the list reaches 30,000, a date and a word will be listed on the page. On that date, every weblog on the list agrees to make a single post with the word as the title. The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
