BNF: Don’t Mess With Texas and Burnt Orange Report

Robert Greenwald thanks Texas and Burnt Orange Report, and writes:

We are four votes away from a huge victory for the anti-war movement, and you can make that happen.  A huge emergency war supplemental bill is moving through congress, and the House of Representatives is expected to vote tomorrow.  Many of your representatives in Texas have committed to voting against any war spending that doesn’t include funds for withdrawal.  This bill does not.

I am in the process of making my latest film, ‘Rethink Afghanistan,’ and I recently returned from Kabul, Afghanistan.  The things I learned there confirmed my belief that our efforts in Afghanistan are badly flawed.  We must bring everyone back to the table to develop a new strategy – including an exit – and put it in to place before we send 21,000 more troops into harm’s way and commit another $100 billion to this misadventure.

Lloyd Doggett has said he’ll vote against the supplemental tomorrow.  Let him know you support that decision by calling his offices in DC at 202-225-4865 and in Texas at 512-916-5921

Thanks to Glenn Smith and Karl Thomas Musselman at Burnt Orange for all their help.
