Dubious numbers Felix. Are you truly trying to say that people should be forced into highrises, squashed together like sardines? Are you saying that we should all ride choo-choo trains to our green jobs in the new urban nirvana? Felix, the last time I saw statistics for who liked this mode of living, only young pups like you with no small children and empty nesters one step from The Home thought this was a good idea. Would you and your socialist friends force us to live a lifestyle that we don’t choose? Apparently so. Thanks comrade Felix.

He supports the NRA 100%, voted against the stimulus plan,
(Oxford comma?) and Obama’s Energy Bill.”
If Barrow supported the NRA, the stimulus plan, and the energy bill the Oxford comma would qualify. However, this is not a list of three items modified by “supports”. Barrow apparently does NOT support the stimulus plan.
His disposition on the Energy bill remains unclear. It would seem to be modified by “voted against”.

My congressman, John Barrow D (GA-12) is about a Blue a blue-dog Demo as you could find. He supports the NRA 100%, voted against the stimulus plan,
(Oxford comma?) and Obama’s Energy Bill.

I will forward him your research and data along with my thoughts as soon as you get it to me.

Thanks
