I just found this posted on myspace.com. I find lots of the same junk I've been getting in my e-mail for years posted there, but this one was new to me. Anyone else seen this yet? I considered calling just to see if Arnold himself is on the recording, but it's long distance.

Subject: [political] Gender Neutral Marriage Bill
Body: This seriously only takes about 10 seconds and is nearly effortless:

California Gov. Schwarzenegger's office is accepting calls from anywhere regarding their marriage equality bill. It passed both houses of their legislature, but needs the Governor's approval. It's all automated, so you don't have to talk to anyone.

Follow these directions:
1. Call the Governor: 916-445-2841 (This number is listed at www.governor.ca.gov)
2. Push: 2 (voice your opinion on legislation)you don't actually have to voice your opinion, this is just what the automated recording says)
3. Push: 1 (gender-neutral marriage bill - Senate Bill 849)
4. And push: 1 to support marriage equality (and if you don't support it...press something else)

Pass it on.

Just did it.

It worked, all the way through. I say it's legit, but I don't know how much of a difference it REALLY makes. I think a lot of it is just to make it look like The People have some power.

If it was really going to have any effect on legislation, it would be open to CA residents only and would be an actual election-style poll. That would be the only way of assuring that people don't vote more than once.
