Please Note: We do not buy products from unsolicited email, unsolicited phone calls, personal visits without appointments, or faxes from any organization we have not previously dealt with. We are not interested in how we can save $25 by buying your ink cartridges or by using telephone service or long distance from a company that may or may not be in business next year. We don't want to know about any organ enhancing images, herbs, drugs, procedures or stories. We are not interested in hearing about how we can help spouses of dead generals or a VERY distant relative or deposed leaders who died leaving us millions, or any other 419 scams.
We do not provide free research, and we believe that all students should write their own papers on topics they have chosen or been assigned by their teachers.
We have arrangements for paid research with experienced independent researchers who have been conducting business and government research for at least 10 years. If you need research help, please see our Research Inquiry Form.
We will not pass along any messages to any member of Congress or any government agency, so please do not send them to us as such messages are deleted. One of the many great things about living in the United States is that we, and you, can contact our government representatives directly, with no interference from third parties; see our FAQ, "How to Contact Congress." Remember, communication that is courteous and civil is far more effective than communication containing insults and threats. And, although some people do not believe it, elected members of Congress DO listen to their constituents.
P.S. We do not sell flags - see "How do I get a flag that has flown over the Capitol?"
