The Only Appropriate Response to Gifford's Clueless Form Letter

Wow. This just proves nobody reads any fucking emails at your goddamn office. I'm against ALL WAR including the phony "war on terra(tm)" and the fucking phony "war on drugs"...if anybody had read any of my goddamn email, you'd know that!

Your blind support for war, that which is killing our society more than any of our "enemies of the week" is disgusting and counter-productive.

And you realize how close "homeland" is to "Vaterland" don't you??? I guess not...


But never mind, I didn't plan on voting for you anyway! Who needs a faux-republican when you can get the real thing, eh?

Dear Mr. Gardiner,

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about terrorism. I believe that my first and highest duty as a Member of Congress is to protect the American people, defend our homeland, and strengthen our national security. Indeed, the attempted Christmas Day attack serves as a jarring reminder that both international and domestic terrorism are very real threats to the security of our citizens and our nation.

Congress is committed to developing new systems and overhauling existing programs to ensure our country and citizens remain safe. These measures include the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act, Project BioShield, the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, the Secure Border Initiative, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments Act, and provisions of the PATRIOT Act that are specific and tailored to countering the threats we face.

The 9/11 attacks brought terrorism and Islamic extremism to the forefront of America's consciousness. As we enter the eighth year of combat operations against al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and continue to counter terrorist threats around the world, it is more important than ever that we not forget the reasons for which we fight.

I am committed to ensuring that the Department of Defense is fully funded and our servicemembers are provided with the best equipment and resources available to prepare them for the full range of conflicts we may face. That is why I supported the FY 2010 National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 2647), which authorized over $680 billion in budget authority for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the national security programs of the Department of Energy (DoE) during fiscal year 2010. The bill provides for increased pay for our servicemembers, increased spending on military health care, and new family housing and medical facilities as well asfunding for key weapons systems.

As Congress continues to address terrorism, I will keep your thoughts in mind. National security remains one of my top priorities, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the House Armed Services Committee to develop effective methods for combating terrorism.

I always appreciate hearing from constituents, like you, who are informed and interested in national security issues affecting Arizona and the nation. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if you require assistance.

Sincerely Yours,

Gabrielle Giffords
Member of Congress

  1. Wow, that's really offensive. Though Grijalva's office will just send you a form that doesn't say much of anything specific, I'm not sure what is worse actually.
