Dimocrat Staffer: Constituent calls are “harassment”

The arrogance of these liberal scumbags is breathtaking…

Posted By Capitol Confidential On March 19, 2010

Yesterday, I decided to call Rep. John Garamendi’s (D-CA) office in Washington, D.C. He’s my representative and I wanted to voice my opposition to the Senate Health Care Bill. I spoke with a female staffer and politely told her that, while I support health care reform, I oppose the Senate Bill because it wasn’t true “reform.” She said the Congressman thinks it’s a good bill and that he campaigned on health care reform. I told her I knew that. I also mentioned that I voted for him. When I tried to give her specific reasons why the Senate Bill would harm our system rather than reform it, she refused to listen. She said she was very busy and hung up on me. Being the persistent person that I am, I kept calling back. Each time I tried to finish my point, she hung up.

I called one more time. This time she said, “If you call one more time, we will notify Capital Police.” I asked why my conduct warranted involving federal law enforcement agents. She said I was “harassing” her. I tried to explain that trying to convince a representative to change his or her vote didn’t constitute “harassment.” Before I could fully explain, she hung up again.

I called back. This time, I asked to speak to her supervisor in order to report her repeated hanging up as well as the threat she made. I was placed on hold. Thinking I was holding for her supervisor, I was shocked when a Federal Agent with the Capital Police picked-up the telephone.

    @ teacake:
    This was a lawyer who wrote this. In the end, he got his way. But read how it ends. The takeaway question is, how many non-lawyer constituents were actually intimidated by this minor totalitarian apparatchik.

    And I’m sure this minor totalitarian apparatchik was operating under orders from, and with the full knowledge of the major totalitarian apparatchik, a.k.a. congressman Garamendi.

    Disgusting. Our congresscritters have far too much of a mindset that they know best, and that we should just sit down, shut up, and let them run the show without having to listen to us.

    Let’s give the vast majority of the House & Senate a pink slip. Replace RINO’s like McCain with conservative leaders. Replace plastic faced nutcases like Pelosi with someone who actually has active brain cells. And make Obama a lame duck 2 years before he gets sent packing.

    As a former government worker who dealt with the public I tend to place this caller in the category of someone who needs to be hung up on.

    Persistent usually meant unstable or realistic and you would waste taxpayer dollars spending too much time with gadflys only interested in jamming the system up so no work can get done. There are 3 ring binders that need to be managed.

    My approach was to always give the person the benefit of the doubts regarding of how unfocused, angry, or demeaning they were when they called. If someone was polite and pleasant and reasonable I would make my best effort to provide them a solution and follow up. If someone was like this guy, I would give him the solution but would be unlikely to provide any follow up or further assistance to him even though he wanted to boost the issue to the President. Get real.

    Some people don’t want an answer they just want to see how much of your time they can waste.

    That being said, any politician worth his/her salt today can put up a facebook discussion group and interact directly with a concerned taxpayer. But even in that venue you will find trolls trying to hide as reasonable people. If I was a senator I would want my staff not to leave anyone hanging. There are plenty of ways to reach out to people.

    Time for a constitutional amendment on term limits (12 years total), no retirement, and all government members must comply 100% with the laws that they pass. No Bill can be more than 50 pages in length and must be written at a 4th grade reading level.

    I know its low, but the commentators at KOS and LGF have to be able to comprehend it???

    Where the Senators office made a mistake here suggesting that people calling them are harassing them. Ask him his main point, write it down, get his address, fill out the form letter, print it, show it to the Senator quickly, mail it back to the complainer.

    I just saw NBC news also complaining that there is violence in the air around the health care opponents.

    Politicians will only listen to money, bad press, and votes. Probably in that order. Letters and emails fall short unless they are overwhelming. But the noise ratio is so high these days, communications from the little noisy people are discarded whenever possible. (Just sent two letters to Senators yesterday)

    That being said. Failure to defuse will lead to explosions.

    Nice, political staffers are threatening us with “the police” if we don’t stop calling them. They know the average person, me, doesn’t want to deal with police. They know people like me just go away if we don’t know what the exact law means. Between the corruption of the process and the intimidation, they are destroying the average Americans faith in the goverment doing what is best for the people. It is disgusting.

    When I man the phones for a politician and someone calls me up and says I voted for you, but….. My eyes just roll to the back of my head. Please speak your piece and get off the phone. In return for this insincere call we will tell you we care but we really don’t. It carries more weight (if any) to state exactly how you voted. Or better make a valid point in a letter without stating the voting preference and enclose $10.

    I think the better approach is to start a blog and a mini movement cross linked to people of a similar mind. Facebook would probably do. Wield votes and money in common cause with some fellow patriots.

    This is pretty consistent with what I saw over the weekend. We spent several hours in the Cannon House Office Building. You could tell who was voting for and against the bill simply by their actions. Those that were “no” votes had their doors open and were willing to answer questions. Those voting for this piece of crap had their doors closed, wouldn’t answer and often had their mail slots taped shut.

    Also, I finally got the several hundred pictures I took whittled down and edited. You can view them here: Washington Health Care 3-22-10

    7. Invictus

    OUT of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance 5
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade, 10
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

    The lady asked, “Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?”

    “A republic,” replied Dr. Franklin, “if you can keep it.”

    Indeed. The stuggle to keep it will be the most difficult challenge we have faced since the Civil War. Our enemy is an intoxicating ideology, foreign to the American experience, that is being embraced by those who purport to represent us. Extricating this cancer will not be easy and may shake the very foundations of our republic.

    Many of us have forgotten what liberty is; they have confused it with freedom. Liberty assumes that individuals take responsibility, and that responsibility guarantees our freedom. When we turn over our responsibility to the government, we lose our freedom.

    7. Invictus
    OUT of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.
    In the fell clutch of circumstance 5
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.
    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade, 10
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate: 15
    I am the captain of my soul.

    RIX, thanks for posting that. I’m feeling a bit glum this evening, as you may have noticed, and that was quite inspirational.

    Couldn’t help himself. He’s high on power and is extrinsically compelled to take on the SCOTUS to reach his ruin-America goals. The SCOTUS has to be altered for his agenda.

    He’s so disgusting when he’s high on power. Looking down his nose at everyone.
    He really thinks he’s a king. Telling us us how it’s going to be in OUR country.

    @ RIX:

    I think it will get worse before it gets better. Krauthammer said something to the effect that this is not the beginning of the end, it is simply the end. Profligate spending is endangering our economic prominence. If it doesn’t turn quickly we are going under, economically and influentially. We will take most of the world under with us. From there, history’s lessons must be retaught. That has been and shall likely be,,,bloody.

    Why do I think this is so freaking wrong. The government in charge of it’s citizens medical records ????

    And hackers waiting in line to tap into them. Climate gate emails ????

    Health Plan May Expose Medical Records to Hackers, Experts Fear

    But privacy advocates fear that the speed at which the government is moving to digitize records will increase the risk of medical identity theft, and they are concerned about what the government will do once it has access to Americans’ medical history.

    There’s already a story about once a month about one government agency or another “losing” tens of thousands or millions of files containing personal information. And what about the periodic stories about employees accessing the passport files of celebrities and that sort of thing?

    It won’t be any different once they have everyone’s medical records.
