LOL! We are supposed to warm up next week. I only wish the time weren't changing this weekend. It's finally getting light in the morning and now they will play with time so it will be dark in the morning again.
When Ron Paul was in congress he tried to refuse his salary but congress has written the pay rules so everyone has to take their salary. Dr. Paul then had his entire salary sent directly to a charity. Being in congress was never intended to be a career or a job one could make a living from. Being a member of congress was intended to be a part-time job with minimal pay, filled by men desiring to serve their State and country, not be served.
Thank you Rosie! Snow is bad enough, I don't like any kind of ice on the road at all. Hopefully that's about finished since the weatherman says we have a warming trend coming up with actual spring-like temperatures! Hope they are right this time.
I can't imagine our congress voting to cut their pay by 10% and on top of that to cut their expenses by 10%. Considering all the benefits congress gets they shouldn't even get a salary; either that or they should not get the benefits. If we had any real statesmen in congress they would take the story of the Russian Parliament cutting their own pay and hold it up before congress, and the media, and demand if the Russians can do that so can the American congress. I won't hold my breath on that becoming a major issue here!
It may seem dark at the moment, but don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, keep moving and you'll get there. God won't abandon you; let God be your light. It may take some time, but in the end, everything will be alright.
I actually take my new place on that Board in January. The old Board had their final meeting recently and the next meeting will seat the new members; of which I am one. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers on this.
