"The GOP's Ethics Disaster
The gutting of the Office of Congressional Ethics is chilling evidence that we are headed for a new age of official embrace, or at least acceptance of unethical and illegal behavior." The Atlantic Norm Ornstein

WE NEED AN OUTSIDE SOURCE TO INVESTIGATE MEMBERS OF congress. The idiots want to police themselves... NOT A GREAT IDEA!

Sir, the climate is changing all the time. Man does have an impact. 
The president-elect said he is “studying” whether the United States should withdraw from the Paris agreement.

Hey Nancy, 8 years ago you said we had to vote for it to find out what was in it. Now you're worried?
Republicans still don't know what they want to do on health care, the Democratic leader says.

China said it would return a seized US naval drone. Trump told them to 'keep it.'

He's not the president yet.... He has no say in foreign policy yet... He has to learn how to keep is mouth shut.

Yep, being president and a senator is very good for the pocket. Working for the air force for 22 years and teaching pilots for another doesn't line the pocket as well.

His big mouth and bombastic attitude has found a way to disrupt his "winning" ways. 
U.S. Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign appealed to Capitol Hill for support on Monday as his attacks on the Muslim parents of a decorated American soldier killed in Iraq drew sharp rebukes from fellow party members.

Three bedroom, 1 bath accommodation. In a very good location to visit temples and shrines in Kyoto. Close to a train station and buses. Use Japan Rail PASMO get anywhere on the city. We used this as a home away from home for four nights. Frig, stove, broiler, shower, tub, 2 real beds and futons enough to sleep six. It met our needs most excellently.

What a find. We arrived at 7pm without a reservation. But were told we could get served now in the bar area. Sat, ordered and served in less than 20 minutes. Outstanding shrimp and grits and lime grilled shrimp. Go the next time you want a great meal.

It is up a very long and rough dirt road but is shown as a jewel of a resort when we arrived. You are at 7,000 ft and the air was clear and dry. All the services were great with a room that was down a path but on the doorstep of nature. I highly recommend the Lodge as a place to stay on your Kenyan Safari.
