The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

How to Contact Holdout Rep. Pomeroy (ND)

North Dakota's sole member of Congress, Rep. Earl Pomeroy is hiding.

He is one of the Democratic undecideds going into tomorrow's health-scare vote. Actually, if we were going to have to stand up and answer questions about why the Bank of North Dakota is singled out for favoritism in the student-loan government takeover in the reconciliation bill while at the same time holding out an undecided vote in a bill 64% of North Dakotans are opposed too, we'd probably play a silent version of the kid game "marco-polo" too! Apparently this isn't the first complaint of only listening to North Dakotan Democratic "yes-men":

Pomeroy isn't on twitter so you can't tweet him. Apparently he's on facebook but we really loathe facebook. If you try to email him with a zip code outside of North Dakota, you'll be blocked. And forget trying to comment on his Youtube videos because it is set up for comment approval or something.

Yet there is a way to contact him as we discovered: through Youtube email! Here's the message we sent to him. (We'll let you know if we get a response.)
Congressman: Congrats on your new appointment. [Nacil: we're trying to be
nice here--he just got a big promotion a week ago to be Social Security
subcommittee chair. Hmm. More payoffs for his vote???
] Will you
now please defend your oath to uphold the Constitution by voting NO on Obamacare
and show the American people that a mandate to purchase insurance is an
"excessive fine" never before established in the history of our nation and
prohibited by the 8th Amendment?

Also, will you explain your stance and what involvement you played in the "Bismark Bank Job" to cut a special deal for the Bank of North Dakota while having sweeping changes to every other student loan lender in the country?

We'd be willing to gander that if everyone were to try and sneak in the same door, it'd shut down pretty quick...
