2019 HR1 Steamrolling Constitutional States Rights

2019 HR1 now working its way through the House of Representatives is an atrocity!  The Federal Government has been slowly eroding States Rights since Congress realized it could actually propose legislation that would do so.  There’s a difference between slow erosion and using hydraulicking – high pressure movement of mountains.  2019 HR1 blasts away the …

Court Arguments in Congressional Legislation?

HR-1 2019’s first “change things as fast as possible” bill is working its way through the legislative process – or Congress would like you to believe.  If the House truly honored the “legislative process” this bill would be ripped to pieces.  It’s not legislation at all.  Here are my comments regarding just one small part …

“Myopicy” My What???

OK – I made up the word.  I couldn’t come up with a word to describe some of the myopic viewpoints of our Congresspeople.  I’m traveling the early part of the week hence the early posting.   My Colorado Representatives: “Myopicy” – not a word according to our dictionaries, but how else does one say …

Embarrassments!

This will probably seem like more of same…and unfortunately it is.  Congress is doing more of same – totally shirking their Congressional responsibilities.  How do we make it stop?  Maybe a Convention of the States will be required?   My Colorado Representatives: You’ve embarrassed me, you’ve embarrassed yourselves, you’ve embarrassed the nation! I see the …

116th Congress – Now What??

Yesterday’s topic was too pointed to be just another issue.  Hey!  The government is (partially) shut down – even (in case you haven’t heard) most of the National Parks!!  But we have a new Congress now.  Can they be directed….????   My Colorado Representatives: Here we go – 116th U.S. Congress.  Will you three be …

Now you know, Calvin!

A picture is often worth way more than 1000 words.  Calvin and his buddy Hobbs pictured things in life more simply that many of us, but in reality saw much more than we realized.  Cavin was worried about Santa surviving 30 years ago.  Do you think Calvin is worried about our nation surviving today? I …

It’s As Good as Over?

As my last attempt of the year to be heard past the first staff member to trash this letter, I figure I might as well try to tell my Cngresspeople once again that things must be done to save the nation.  Sounds hollow, I know – the “saving the nation” stuff – but … My …

Deficit Interest, Yes – Concerns, most Definitely

My Congressman, Scott Tipton, sent me a message, via email.  His message referred to my “interest” in the deficit and told me what he’s doing to fix it.  Yeah, Right. My response:   Scott – On August 31, 2018, you (well, your staff) sent me a message at 1:14 PM MDT.  In the message, you …

Emotion and Laws do not mix

As I was faxing this letter to my Representative, Scott Tipton (R-CO) I noticed where President Trump “tweeted” similar concerns.  Where does it end? Laws twisted and turned by emotion have no place in a nation based on the rule of law.  Politics is emotions.  Laws are NOT!   Scott – There’s a reason we …

How to Hold Yourself Hostage – Not Smart!

For the first time I have generated a two page letter to my Senators.  I’ve always figured if I couldn’t say what I needed to say in one page, I shouldn’t be saying it.  This Omnibus Bill that Congress used to hold the nation hostage says different.   My Colorado Senators:   As my two …
