I think you're really onto something. I know very, very little about law, but wouldn't a resolution be a lot easier to make happen than a law?...Hmm...And perhaps if it were framed more in support of our UK friends, an objection to how they are being treated, a human rights issue?
In my totally brain-fogged state I didn't even notice the "representative"'s name and therefore took your resolution to be real and got all worked up, even wrote a post on that basis...
...But as you say we should strive to make it a reality; unfortunately I'm no legal eagle, but if those of you who are knowledgeable can hammer something out I'm sure we'll all support it....Once ready, I think it should be brought to Kim McCleary/ the CAA and separately promoted as well.
Networking with other groups who have suffered the label is an excellent idea (and perhaps necessary), too.
Thank you for the link to the web page on B&D Consulting. I couldn't find a date on the page. Please pass along to your webmaster that a date on every article on the website would be helpful. These days, when we can check news sites frequently throughout the day, we have been accustomed to knowing when something was first reported and when it was updated.
I imagine we're all just intimidated by the great job you've done so far. I think we could use some Whereas-es defining Unexplained Illness, like stating that an unexplained illness is simply an illness the physical signs of which are not detectable with current technology, and that throughout history Unexplained Illnesses have later been explained and legitimized, but only after untold suffering by those afflicted. What do you think?
If I read correctly, the CAA is taking on working with us on the resolution? Sorry, I am not too smart today. If so, that would be wonderful -- if we hear back from them about details. Yes, fresh-eyes, transparency and a spirit of collaboration would be great.
Yes, Andrea posted that Sen. Reid is a supporter. To contact WPI about all this, I would suggest looking on their website contacts page -- there are people listed who work with media, etc. I just can't remember the details now, but they were there last time I checked.
Levi, sorry my brain is not currently up to "whereas". I am so grateful to you for sharing yours!
I'm so glad, happy, encouraged, amazed, inspired and hopeful that you're doing this Levi, and that there are a few others who can join you. I'm sorry, though, that it won't be me. One "whereas" and my eyes begin to cross. Two "whereas"s and you don't want to know . . .
Whereas other kinds of thoughts and postings don't have the same effect on me.
Just wondering: Why is the Honorable Representative Reevy Wessley from Texas?
