Read The Bill: Improve the legislative process by posting bills online for 72 hours before debate!

In February 2009, Congress passed the largest piece of spending legislation in history and NO ONE read the billBoehner Endorses Mandatory Review Period for Major Spending BillsCNN Campbell Brown endorses Read The Bill

Listen to the videos above  then go to site and sign the petition.    This is something that President Obama promised to do during his campaign and yet his administration and  the Democrats in Congress shoved thru two trillion dollar bills with ABSOLUTELY NO ONE EVER READING THEM—-NOT EVEN THE CONGRESSMEN THEMSELVES!

Now they are getting ready to shove another hugely costly Health Care Bill  in the same manner.   No transparency, no discussion and no debate.  There is no excuse for any of this; there is no legislation that Congress has ever passed that needed to be passed so quickly that a 3 day waiting period would cause disaster to strike.

This needs to change, and now is the time for it to change. Finally some Change that I can believe in.  BB

You didn’t have the time to read the 1100 page stimulus bill. And neither did members of Congress—by their own choice. Most lawmakers—on both sides of the aisle—were only given 13 hours to read the bill before it was passed.

Unfortunately, this is not an anomaly. Many members of Congress wish they had more time to Read the Bill.

ReadTheBill.org is a commonsense solution – we want Congress to post all bills online for 72 hours before they are debated. That gives members of Congress – and you – three days to read legislation and consider how it could potentially affect each of us in our daily lives. A 72 hour rule would also give you a chance to let your senators and representative in Congress know what you like, or don’t like, about a bill before they vote.

If no one is taking the time to read these crucial pieces of legislation, then no one knows what’s in them before they are passed.

Let’s make sure Congress takes the time to Read the Bill. Sign our petition now.

Man .. Excellent .. Wonderful .. I will bookmark your web site and take the feeds additionallyI’m glad to find numerous helpful info right here in the publish, we want work out more techniques on this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .

?How to analysis a engage in
Preparing to write down a Engage in Report
Below are some tips to help you prepare to write down a perform examine:
The Nature within the Assignment
Mainly because the capabilities of any engage in is these an ephemeral expertise, composing a enjoy look at is often an exciting, though difficult, task. You will have to be each spectator taking in and enjoying the overall performance and critical analyst within the production itself. You have got to be able to supply a very brief summary of your participate in, a close goal analysis from the capabilities you attend, and an interpretation and evaluation from the entire ensemble of staging, acting, directing, and so on.
The evaluate assignment asks you to definitely analyze in an aim manner the relative success or failure of the given production. Note that you choose to are not asked simply to summarize the plot or give an opinion regarding the textual content on the perform being mounted; your critique must be grounded during the production itself. Your job is to describe the production accurately, and then to render a value judgment of it centered upon what you have seen and what you expected. The assignment will take a look at your ability as a reader from the perform and as an observer and critic within the production.
Also to grounding your critique to the production you witness, you must be careful to limit your look at to a couple essential observations in help of your thesis (which is able to be discussed below). You must concentrate on the several important ideas and aspects with the production and focus your attention on only what you consider probably the most significant parts belonging to the production itself. Unlike a newspaper assess, which might be loosely structured and superficial, your assignment is fairly definite. You could be not asked to cover a large range of production factors (i.e. effectiveness of every actor, every costume change, every established change, every directorial decision, and so on); instead, the assignment demands that you simply create a couple key ideas in thoughtful detail.
Remember, too, that your stance is to be goal and critical, not impressionistic and merely nasty. A critic isn’t someone who simply "criticizes," but a person who studies, analyzes, and then renders a rational judgment of what he/she has seen. Your tone will be very important in making your evaluate reliable and intelligent.
Before You Attend the Production
Examine the engage in before going to the production. (It is important to be prepared with the production you plan to attend; otherwise, you run the risk of having to see it several times.)
Into your mind, have a sound feeling of how a "standard" production would likely start looking, carry out having a feeling of what the characters would possibly appear like, the type of costuming which may be put into use, a suitable established pattern, and an best suited rendering of your theme and tone from the perform.
Pick out, as you browse, several critical or problematic points within just the enjoy that may be of particular interest to watch for within the production you may be about to attend. If your instructor has asked you to definitely pay back particular attention to certain things, make sure that you choose to are prepared to recognize them in overall performance.
Attending the Production
Attend the perform with the open mind, a willingness to accept the engage in since the director has presented it in production.
Note any deviations from your concept of the "standard" production and try to unearth a extremely good explanation for that deviation. (Is the director trying to "say" something new or different? Was your feeling of your engage in somehow inaccurate, or had been you demonstrated new insights by the director’s production?)
You may wish to consider a number of the following:
Why the choice of costumes, and why the established model?
How did the actors deliver their lines (seriously, comically, realistically, formally)? Were being there any significant steps or gestures that contributed to the play’s meaning?
Ended up any "special effects" utilized (consider lighting, sound, audience participation, machinery)?
Had been any significant cuts made inside the script?
