Has Congress taken the legal term “perjury” out of their books, it is no longer an offense or so it seems? Seems so, if not they may want to because there is no point in having it if you are not going to abide by it or prosecute those that commit perjury. I understand it would need to applied to their members as much as anyone………..often more often!
What is the point in raising your right hand before all to tell the truth. It has become a pathetic joke.
Amy C. Barrett was refreshing!
They are however, smarter than the Congress of the United States
Weird: Pelosi Doesn’t Want to Release Her Tax Returns
Democrats are still relentlessly pursuing one of the most boring things imaginable: President Donald Trump’s tax returns. The Supreme Court ruled against Congress this week, saying there was no legitimate legislative reasons to look at the president’s returns.
There is an easy way for Democrats to score some major points in a popularity contest against Trump. They could simply agree en masse to release their own tax returns. But that ain’t happening!
Nancy Pelosi was asked if she’d release her returns as a show of good faith, but she refused, stating that she is “not running for president.” Uh huh.
As this meme notes, a smarter idea would be to check the tax returns of politicians who become millionaires. The Trump-hating Republican Senator Richard Burr, for example! (NOT AG Bill Burr)
Burr is currently under investigation for insider trading after he dumped his hospitality stocks months ago – the day he received a classified briefing that coronavirus was headed to America.
Burr’s net worth in 2015 was reported at $3.1 million. In 2018, his net worth had jumped up to $7.4 million – more than doubling in three years. It’s probably even higher today. We should be asking for everyone’s tax returns in Washington.

I get sick to my stomach when I see a pic of this witch.

If I have learned anything from this pandemic, the shutdown is that I have not appreciated all of you, us and our roles near enough, some maybe not at all. I do now!
If you’re a doctor or nurse, thank you. Thank you for all you do. My life is healthier, and will last longer because of you. If you are a police officer or lawyer….(yes even lawyers have essential roles), thank you, there have been times both have been needed.
We can’t all be doctors, nurses, police officers or even lawyers. You are all essential. But guess what, the guys and gals that pick up my trash can’s every week…….they are essential. The dish washers in the restaurants are essential. I like a clean plate when I have an order brought to my table. It’s healthier that way. The people stocking the shelves at the grocery store are essential. It should be pretty obvious by now just how important they/you are! The truckers, the men and women on the loading docks, barbers, daycare workers, janitors/custodians if you prefer, all are essential. And many of those I just mentioned were classified or designated essential by your governor or county executive. Guess what? The guy or gal that waxes my car needs to feed his family. I need my car waxed. He isn’t working right now. Only those that are “taking care of us” are essential and are working? Will that guy that would wax my car would be taking care of me and HIS FAMILY. There are many people in positions like his/hers and many, many others I can’t begin to list here………I don’t have that much space or time. You get my point…….I HOPE! And if you decided suddenly you have read enough………thanks for coming and have a great day.
It is pathetic that anyone person, or business would be classified as non-essential……..therefore you will not be earning a living during a difficult time. Your family despite the perception placed on you are all essential. We should not even be having this conversation. Essential/or non-essential people, jobs and businesses have now been filtered into our daily lives. We are being categorized. This is BS.
WE, EVERYONE OF US ARE ESSENTIAL, WE ALL HAVE ROLES. Without waste management workers, trash would pile up on our streets, in our homes……etc. (Have you seen the mess when trash hasn’t been collected?). Somebody MUST do it. We all have a role and without people in those roles, pieces would be missing. Our community, or nation is like a puzzle, when all the pieces are in place we get the full picture. I can’t drive to my doctor’s appointment if I have no gas (thank you to those who work in the energy industry/gas and oil). I have no car without autoworkers. If you are a professor at a university or a heart surgeon, even the president of the United States, if pieces (roles) are missing from the puzzle WE DON’T FUNCTION. Even if that piece is a janitor, maid, dog catcher (you want a rabid dog in YOUR neighborhood?) or the guy collecting your trash. What kind of mess would you have without them? Thank you to guy that cuts my grass, especially when I couldn’t following my heart surgery. I needed him!
Think about all those you need, count on, ask for help from……how important are they? What would you do without them? Yeah, maybe you do some things yourself, but not all. And there are people out there that need people, that maybe you don’t necessarily need.
When they say “we are in this together”, we have always been in this together. It’s why they call it a community, a nation……..and in this country it is one nation. There are some that would like to take that away from us.
A university professor, a doctor ……… earn more than the trash collector (I mean no offense if I am using the wrong terminology in your case), but go without them. They are important to us! They are not just important, but needed. They are as we all are a piece of the puzzle. Housewives…….? No less important…..greatly needed, you teach, you cook our meals daily. You went to work during our wars. NO ONE, IS NON-ESSENTIAL (except maybe Congress). You’ll not see me write that Hyphenated word again.
Thank you for all you do! Have a great day!
