Support the OPEN Government Act

Take action! Tell your representatives to Improve the Freedom of Information Act by passing S. 849, the OPEN Government Act of 2007.

All you've got to do is fill out your name and address, and the EFF will send your message for you. Particpating in democaracy doesn't get easier than this. Whether or not they care, let the fuckers know how you feel.

Take action, you lazy bums.



The Open Government Act is on the Presidents's desk. This is great news for America and will end government agencies ability to hide from the public. At the Thomas Jackson Centers we have our fingers crossed that the President will sign this bill into law under his own signature. His name on the law would be an open endorsement that Open Government is good government. Without his name, the bill will ride out the congressional recess and become law absent the Presidents signature. The new law will also go a long way in answering the question “Are bloggers journalist?” Good question and here is my answer. I am one of three bloggers (correspondents, writers, etc.) on the three blogs of the Thomas Jackson Center. If you visit our site, you’ll see that ClustrMaps has tracked visitors from all over the world who read our blogs. The government may not like to call us journalist even though bloggers have broken some of the biggest stories in recent history. But and the Big But is - that blogs often have more readers than small town newspapers.
