Chip Ford's CLT
Besides the state being
unable to keep the swimming pools open in August (what, it gets hot in
August?) -- despite still having department money left over to run them
and a law which states that they'll be open until Labor Day Weekend --
little is going on in state politics. This is, after all, summer
vacation season for our "full-time" state legislators -- from early July
until at least Labor Day. Not a bad vacation, just like K-12
student kids -- hey, not a bad comparison!
But on the national level a
revolution has begun, and that's where we at CLT have been focused
during these dog days. What happens there in the near future when
the pols get back to Washington (our Congressmen and U.S. Senators are
vacationing like the kids, and the teachers too) will determine what the
United States of America looks like in the future, for us and our
Never has the U.S. Congress
-- our elected federal representatives and senators -- shown such naked
contempt for constituents as it has in the past few weeks, and none have
displayed more contempt than our own Rep. Barney Frank at a recent "town
hall" meeting. I'm sure you've heard about it by now, but at least
he dared show up to exhibit his disdain for the mere hoi polloi.
Here in the 6th Congressional District -- as in others -- our
Congressman, John Tierney, has not deigned to even put on a staged
dog-and-pony show. As I wrote in my last Update, "Our
Peabody expedition to find Congressman Tierney," we've been
searching for him, still missing in action.
Hudak, will be holding his own town meeting to address, among other
issues, ObamaCare. Barbara and I will be there and hope that those
of you in the 6th District will too, to support Bill and challenge John
Tierney if he has the testicular fortitude to accept the invitation.

Revolution has begun. Join the revolution!
