… So Few … So Many

My Senator Cory Gardner sent out an email message on July 1, accolading himself for all the good things he’s doing.  Unfortunately, I disagree with his enthusiasm over his listed issues:   Senator Gardner: I just went back and reviewed your July 1 message I received via email.  I know you try to keep your …

“I” needs a rest!

Impeach – Investigate – Immunity – I words…they go on and on and on in todays federal government. “I” words, over and over and over.  Come on Congress, give it a rest!!!   My Colorado Representatives:   I’ve come to the conclusion we need to remove some “I” from Congress.  Understanding that “I” is a …

How many times can you fix a problem?

Again, federal spending is eating away at my gut.  The Heritage Foundation today released a long term balanced budget proposal that is a logical approach to potentially solving our federal bankruptcy.  Painless? That would be impossible.  Practical?  Perhaps.  Necessary – Absolutely. This to my three Congressment today!   My Colorado Representatives: It should be no …

What About that “National Debt”?

Over the past several weeks I have ranted to my Congress People about the lack of a Federal Budget and the resultant national debt incurred because Congress won’t budget expendetures (and give-a-way funds, or any funds!)  One of my readers had been doing his own investigative work about the “National Debt” – that $22 Trillion …

Addressed to me…

Form letters are both general and impersonal.  If my Congressmen think a form letter does the response trick, then that tells me something about their concern.  It is accepted “form” (pun intended) but doesn’t make a form letter a proper response.  Hence this letter to my Senator Gardner regarding the federal budget.   Senator Gardner: …

Let it be OVER, Please!

  Finally the over speculated, and apparently not complete enough nor over climatic enough Mueller Report is released!  But wait! …  But we need to investigate!   NO WE DON’T  Not any more.  Let it be OVER, Please!   Finally – after twenty-two months of gnashing of teeth, projections of doom, investigating the investigators and …

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 …
