    That's a "what", where's the "how"?

    That's what I was thinking.

    Is there a vote/approval scheduled in Congress yet?

    So his nomination was only suspended back in March, not blocked or denied?

    I thought we were done hearing about this guy, that he was off the books.

    A quick Google search yielded a request by a congress critter to vote again on his nomination. Dated five days ago. Doesn't seem to have any traction at the moment, though.

    Its always good to contact your congress critters and let them know where you stand on important issues, but if the issues aren't on the 'to do list', don't expect much. At least, that's what I've learned to expect from my establishment republicrats and democans.

    Note to HSO: Being a moderator, and thus in a position of authority, this denotes a leadership role as well. Why don't you take "The High Road", and suggest a "how"? The gentleman has a very valid point.

    There are plenty of example threads here of how to make your voice heard on issues and we've even provided a Resources sticky so people can find who their Congresscritters are to send email or make calls to facilitate that.

    It also wouldn't be much of a forum if the Mods told everyone what and how to do these things and there wouldn't be any point to having Activism if all we did was issue directives and took the ownership away from folks.
