Here’s my 47th e-mail (give or take a few dozen) to Senator Marco Rubio ~ all sent since he took office two years ago.

The first 46 politely disagreed with his blatant disregard of this precious planet and our shared environment.

This one is a bit more contentious:

Dear Senator Rubio:

What the hell is your problem?

Why would you vote AGAINST legislation to end billions in tax breaks to Big Oil (S. 940) and FOR a bill to fast-track expansion of reckless drilling in some of America’s most fragile waters (S. 953).

Is your head up your ass?

What kind of world do you plan to leave to your kids???

There is nothing more important than creating a sustainable future for this planet.  If you don’t watch out for the world, why should anyone vote for you in the next election?

* Stop catering to lobbyists!

* Stand up to Big Oil.

* Protect sea turtles, polar bears and other wildlife.

* Stop polluting the planet and ignoring your constituents. 

We are so tired of getting the exact same canned response from your office ~ promising a more personal reply that is NEVER forthcoming.

You are the worst kind of politician imaginable.  I wouldn’t vote for you if you were running against yourself.

In response, I received the exact same canned response I’ve gotten every time:

Thank you for taking the time to contact me. I have received your message and I welcome the opportunity to address your concerns.

If you’ve attempted to contact my office previously and have not yet received a response, I hope you will accept my sincere apology.

As you await a response, please know that our office is working towards best serving the state of Florida.

I appreciate hearing your views, and I understand how important these issues are to you. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts, and please expect my response in the near future.

If you need immediate assistance with a federal agency, please call (866) 630-7106 toll-free in Florida. You may also contact the Orlando regional office at (407) 254-2573 or the Miami regional office at (305) 418-8553.

Do not mail correspondence to the Washington DC Office as it will delay the response to your request for assistance.

What a load of condescending claptrap and pretentious bullshit!  He couldn’t decide which “sweet nothings” to toss out to concerned citizens . . . so he included them all.

Hey . . .

Marco . . . 

Rubio . . .

Please accept my sincere apology for being blunt:  

You are a consummate politician . . . and a complete and utter jackass!

P.S. I mean that most sincerely.

How ironic that his constituents are told that mailing correspondence to his D.C. office will delay response.

Why is that?

Maybe he’s too busy helping Big Oil rape the planet to pay any attention to us.

No rules.  Just write!
