And repeating myself once more time:  "It’s pretty simple, no immunity for the telecoms.  Call your Senators today and tomorrow and the next day.  Call them until they get this simple message: No Immunity for the Telecoms! And put the pressure on Obama. Make him step forth and take leadership.  He asks us to believe we have the ability to bring about real change in Washington.  Let’s get him to make real change in Washington —  this week, on this issue."  Here are the toll-free katymine numbers to use to make those call to your Senators and Senator Barack Obama:

  • 1 (800) 828 – 0498
  • 1 (800) 614 – 2803

  • 1 (866) 338 – 1015
  • 1 (877) 851 – 6437

Dial like our Constitution depends on it, because it does.
