is congress to old

https://www.rollcall.com/news/politi...-getting-older

https://www.quorum.us/data-driven-in...n-history/175/

age and term limits seem to go hand in hand .. I support limiting both but seeing they (the Rs and the D's write their own checks I dout it will ever been seen

this country seems to not see age as in Governing as problematic

but look at some of them and their Age and you wouldn't want them driving in your home town . their staff are just 24hr medical care telling them what to vote up or down they are just puppets

there are no medical standards or mental tests required to stay in office ... how can so many people who have worked in the same building for so long not find common ground ?

this is not a partisan issue or age discrimination it a failure of or election system when There are 44 congressional districts in which the age of the Representative is more than double the median age of their constituents.

move voting day to a weekend not Tuesday

Every taxpayer wants term limits except those career politicians themselves.

Have you read this one?

Math Lesson
This is Too True to be Funny

The next time you hear a politician use the
Word 'Billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending
YOUR tax money
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
But one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.


A.
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.


B.
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive .


C.
A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.


D.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.


E.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.


While this thought is still fresh in our brain...
let's take a look at New Orleans ...
It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.


Louisiana Senator,
Mary Landrieu (D)
was asking Congress for
250 BILLION DOLLARS
To rebuild New Orleans. Interesting number...
What does it mean?


A.
Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman and child)
You each get $516,528


B.
Or... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans, your home gets $1,329,787.


C.
Or.. If you are a family of four...
Your family gets $2,066,012.


Washington, D.C.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?


Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...
And our nation was the most prosperous in the world.


We had absolutely no national debt.
We had the largest middle class in the world.
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.


What happened?
Can you spell

'politicians!



And I still have to
Press '1'
For English.

I hope this goes around the
U S A
At least 100 times

What the heck has happened to our Country?

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.
