From Wikipedia: In March 2019, during a speech in Conway, New Hampshire, Elizabeth Warren said, “Here’s the problem on term limits on folks in Congress — it makes them more dependent than ever on the lobbyist. Believe me, if the senators only stay for two terms, the lobbyist will be there a lot longer and they’ll know how the game is played.”
Guess what Elizabeth, the lobbyist already know how the game is played and they know the senators and representatives who know how its played as well. A term limitations law should also include a clause that U.S. Senators and Representatives from the House CAN NOT become a lobbyist after leaving office, at least for a specific number of years. (Currently senators must wait 2 years, representatives half that time, it isn’t long enough). Keep them out of the game players pockets.
Elizabeth’s justification of her opposition to term limitations makes no sense, except it could keep her in office longer. That is her more logical reason for opposition. Who is she kidding? She can’t give an honest answer on anything! THAT in itself is a single reason why term limitations is needed, to rid dishonest politicians like Elizabeth Warren.
If you favor term limitations, why would we vote for the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. They have had plenty of terms in federal government, have been around for ever, and as Warren said ‘know how the game is played’. Best alternative to term limitations, if it isn’t an option (and for now it isn’t), STOP VOTING FOR THE SAME PEOPLE OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
I would also venture to say, if some of these people like Sanders, Warren and Biden were not eligible to run, we get more (better) candidates to run. These people that have been in Congress for many years have deeper money bags, making it difficult for newcomers (unless you are already a millionaire like Trump or Bloomberg). Bloomberg has been in politics for years as well. Trump was not.
I know that the presidency is a different office than Congress, and you’ll say the old hang-a-rounds like the three I mentioned should have a right to run. I’d say no, especially to the likes of a Joe Biden who has been in federal government for 40+ years. Talk about being in lobbyist’s pockets. We already know his ties to Ukraine and how his tenure has financially benefited him. I’d go so far to say after 12 years of combined time in a Congressional office, enough is enough. Time to go home!
I think it is possible to work up a form of term limitations that would keep people out of office after so many years in office. Keep them from bouncing around to avoid term limitations. Something to think about. Regardless vote!
**Editor’s Note: The photos in this story are graphic** HILTON HEAD, N.C. (WJW) — An opossum is recovering after golfers beat her with their clubs. According to the Wildlife Rehab of Greenville, Scarlett was beaten on Friday by golfers on Hilton Head Island, leaving her blind and with a broken jaw. Scarlett weighs only two…Opossum left blind, with broken jaw after beating by golfers — WPMT FOX43
I don’t know the full story here but: Possums are mean, when they are confronted, like most animals can become when threatened. On a golf course? I’d have to ask was it attacking you? If so, it may have been rabid. I don’t read from the rehab center it was! You could have just ignored it. Not like there was a gator on the course, would you have done the same? Was it next to one of your golf balls you were about to hit? You could simple walk over with the head of your club, and scooted the ball away, possibly poke the possum to move on.
Possums (Opossums) are not my favorite wild animal either. I only shy them away. I had a Siberian Husky for 17-1/2 years. They confronted her often, she’d kill them, normal animal survival. She did not leave her yard to track them down, only killed them when they entered her yard unwelcomed and confronted her.
Back to the golfers: Were you physically threatened? I doubt it! These possums do have somewhat of a low human benefit. They eat insects, other small animals, moles etc., They do get into your trash however. I again doubt that is what was happening here. Did it make you feel like a big hunter to beat this, to suffer. Not even my Siberian did that. She never left them hurt to suffer. She killed them. She had more sympathy than you! (The Arlin Report comment)
Now she is a self proclaimed AGRICULTURAL GENIUS. (Arlin Report comment)

We’ve heard over and over from AOC that we are all going to die in 12 years (11 now I guess). We heard before from her that she is afraid to have children, fearful of bringing them into this doomed world. That thoughtless process benefits us. We don’t need multitudes of AOC clones. Now she speaks of people her age scared to have children. Thank God she doesn’t speak for anyone else but herself.
Dear AOC, I have children about your age, guess what? They have given me 8 beautiful grandchildren. You have a losing mentality. Also, earth may in fact be destroyed by climate disasters, WHEN GOD SAYS IT’S TIME IT’S TIME. NO ONE, NO ONE ON THIS PLANET KNOWS WHEN THAT WILL BE. NOT EVEN YOU! AND THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO TO STOP IT!
In 2015 Obama warned the Iranians of a plan the Israelis had of killing Gen. Soleimani. He is just a piece of work.
Susan Rice Lies Again — Obama and Soleimani
Susan Rice was a little less ubiquitous this time around than during her infamous five-talk-show world tour repeating the lie that the Benghazi terrorist attack was the fault of an inflammatory video and not due to the criminal negligence of President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. But there she was again on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Comedy Hour” defending her former boss, this time against charges that President Trump cleaned up more of Obama’s Iran mess by terminating the life and reign of terror of Iranian Gen. and Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani:
The Obama administration wasn’t presented with the opportunity to take out Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad early Friday, former national security adviser Susan Rice said Friday night.

Jeffrey Epstein was a high profile prisoner. He wasn’t exactly your average citizen sitting in a jail cell for the night for disorderly public conduct.
If you believe for one minute the video equipment just happened to fail, or the tape just suddenly came up missing, I have some magic beans to sell you. I guarantee you, if I were in that cell, there would be top notch video available of my every move.
What went on in Epstein’s cell was not to be seen by anyone! Not because of Epstein’s appearance but the appearance of someone else. If Epstein committed suicide, what would it matter who saw it? It wouldn’t, he would be dead with or without video. It is the someone else that matters here. Someone did something. And, I still have a problem with someone as wealthy and arrogant as Epstein committing suicide no matter what he did. They believe their wealth will set them free. Often, too often, that is the case. No, someone, many actually benefited from Epstein being dead. Some of the names you’d recognize.
