Default Senator Boxer of California "Ma'am" "Senator"!!!!

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009...-calling-maam/

I found this absolutely rediculous. So much that I emailed her the following reply.

http://http://boxer.senate.gov/contact/email/policy.cfm


Senator Boxer,

Your display towards Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh was extremely disrespectful and condescending. Brig. Gen. Walsh respectfully called you Ma'am. I am sure he has work just as hard to get to the position he holds, as you have yours. The thing that you fail to realize is that you are no better than him.
You clearly have forgotten who a "Senator" is. You are a public servant, not a supreme being. You are elected to your position by the people to represent them. I hope your display is not your typical response or belief about your position.

Respectfully,
Officer jpsfri
Public Servant

Thanks Ben! I enjoyed writing that letter...I'm willing to bet you get a much more courteous response than I...

Quote:
Dear Senator,

I know your liberalism rebukes anything military, but I am writing to inform you that General Walsh addressed you with respect and honor. Military personnel are taught, very early, to address people in the proper fashion of ma'am or sir. You may have worked hard to obtain your position as a Senator (servant) to the California public, but I can guarantee that General Walsh has worked MUCH harder to get to his position.

Thank goodness it's the 21st century, a servant would NEVER have spoken to a General like that in the 19th century...You'd have hanged.

Sorry for the history lesson, but you need to know your place.

Sincerely,

Michael Johnson

Amazing that Madam Boxer is so narrow minded. Here is the letter I sent:

Quote:
Senator Boxer,

I am outraged by your treatment of respected and decorated Brigadier General Michael Walsh. Apparently you have no concept of the respect that the General was paying you when he addressed you as ma'am. It is customary for military personnel to address a superior officer or elected official as sir or ma'am; this is done out of respect for their rank or office.

General Walsh deserves much more respect from you than you have given him as he is a true and dedicated public servant, having put his personal well-being, safety, and life on the line so that self-righteous citizens such as yourself can remain free.

Please apologize to General Walsh, all other military personnel, and the American people.

Brian Mitchell

Here is what I sent to Senator Murkowski:

Quote:
Senator Murkowski,

Thank you for representing me and all Alaskans in the manner in which you do.

I am writing to inform you of the outrage I feel over the treatment of Brigadier General Michael Walsh by your colleague Senator Barbara Boxer. It is irresponsible the disregard Senator Boxer has for this man who has dedicated his life to our freedom and safety. Is there something you can do in the senate to call for her to be disciplined?

I am including a copy of the letter I sent to Senator Boxer for your review:

Senator, thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Brian Mitchell

I got a response from Madam Boxer:

Quote:
Dear Mr. Mitchell:



Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent Senate hearing with Brigadier General Michael Walsh. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.



Shortly after the hearing, I called General Walsh, and we had a friendly and productive conversation. We expressed our respect for one another and our determination to work together to protect our nation and communities from natural disasters.



Thank you again for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me in the future about this or any other issue of concern to you.


Barbara Boxer
United States Senator
I wonder if this is a canned response sent to everyone who sent her a message about this matter. Did anyone else get a response from her

Boxer Demotes Herself From ‘Ma’am’ to ‘Senator’
by Jeffrey Jena

In the spirit of full disclosure I have to say that I find pretty much anything Senator Boxer says irritating. However, her recent disrespectful and condescending request to a Brigadier General — who had respectfully called her “Ma’am” — to call her “Senator,” made me laugh.

Generally speaking, I will call someone whatever they want to be called as long as they are willing to return the courtesy. My given name is Jeffrey but you can call me just about any variation of that you want as long as you do it in friendly manner. However, if your name is Charles and you insist on me calling you “Charles” and not “Charlie” or “Chuck” then you will only call me Jeffrey. If you are a Doctor or a Professor and insist I use your title when addressing you then you must address me as Mister.

I also have a few nicknames and if you know me well enough and long enough you can call me by one of those. My golf buddies can call me any number of names that are not printable here as long as they are also marveling at my shot-making ability at the same time. I also try to treat everyone I meet in daily life with respect. I address everyone I do not know with the title “Sir” or “Ma’am.” The cop who pulls me over for speeding or the person who takes my money at the grocery store get the same treatment.

I recently did a show at a military base where the commanding officer was a woman. I was unsure how to address this much decorated military person so I asked a tough-looking guy with a bunch of stripes on his arm to guide me. He told me that “Ma’am” was the proper term of address, just as I would say “Sir” if the commander were a man. Then he added some information for which I had not asked.

“Don’t address her only by her rank.” He said, “That would tell her you think she is a substandard officer.” In the military it seems that insulting an officer to his or her face isn’t tolerated very well. Military people, being a resourceful bunch, have developed a system for letting an officer know that they don’t think too much of them. They use the term of address which least fulfills the requirement of military respect which is using only the person’s title.

Imagine, for example, you are an enlisted man and you are under the command of a Lieutenant Smith. If Lt. Smith is a competent leader you would address him as “Sir,” “LT” or “Lt. Smith.” If Lt. Smith is an arrogant moron you would always address him simply as “Lieutenant.”

So when General Walsh quickly came back with “Senator” and not “Senator Boxer” I laughed because I knew what he meant; this is a substandard person for whom I have no respect!

Let’s all address her as “Senator” from now on.
