I was wondering when we’d get a fresh thread to discuss how Trump is first to worst in every possible way. He’s actively sabotaging our security and safety - he couldn’t do worse in pandemic response if he tried. His foreign policy continually inures benefit to Russia, and today’s actions to suggest the US is withdrawing troops from Germany and relocating them to Italy and Belgium over Germany’s “nonpayment of NATO funds” is more bulkshit on a stick that ignores that isn’t how NATO is funded - but Trump’s going to commit billions to moving our troops and undermining our security posture in Europe while Russia improves theirs.

Cleo would like you all to know her paws are healing up, but she is not at all happy she can’t go swimming for at least another 10 days. (She has so much fur/hair that it takes a long time to dry, she’s staying wet too long and she got a fungal infection between all her toe beans on all 4 feets.) She has to finish all her antibiotics first. She’s also very bored. And she has to take benedryl that makes her goofy and sleepy. She still gives very nice doggie kisses though.

Had a funny incident earlier tonight. I was headed into a store tonight, pulling on my face mask, as a woman crossed me in the parking lot. She ducked into her car, saying, “I forgot my mask! Thankfully, it’s just in my car.” I quipped over my shoulder, “Things you wouldn’t have thought of a year ago, eh?” as I held the door for her at maximum reach. It’s good to know that people are kind of accepting reality, instead of being Karens or gun-humping Joes.

“…I just find it very disturbing that there are still many of my colleagues, especially in [the] Judiciary [Committee], that are just not following the attending physicians’ guidelines,” said U.S. Rep. Sylvia R. Garcia, a Houston Democrat who spent much of Tuesday in the same room as Gohmert in a hearing that included testimony from U.S. Attorney General William Barr.

“We’re going to have to find a way to make it a rule — and perhaps make it a rule with sanctions — because we’re spending too much time in Judiciary either arguing about it or talking about it, and we’re all on edge because they’re not wearing their masks,” she added. “I’m not sure why, but it’s just very disturbing.”

More than a third of the population of Chile lives in ust one very large urban conglomeration. Chile is large in one dimension, and has a lot of farming, the rural areas likely have very limited access to medical care.

From 2018:

While there is no official tally of the number of House hobos who turn their offices into makeshift bedrooms…put the estimate at around 100 representatives, or more than one-fifth of the governing body. Publicly, about 50 members have ‘fessed up to it.

Their ranks include everyone from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to New York Reps. Donovan, Gregory Meeks (D-Queens/LI), Lee Zeldin (R-LI), John Katko (R-Syracuse) and Brian Higgins (D-Buffalo).

Yeah, my heart fucking bleeds for them.

And now…

It’s a practice Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., would like to see permanently banned.

Rank and file members of Congress make around $174,000 a year. One-bedroom apartments in D.C., which would likely serve as a secondary place of residence for members, can cost more than $2,000 a month.

“When people say, ‘Well, it’s very, very expensive to live in Washington,’ that’s true,” Speier says. “But you ran for this office knowing what the salary was and what the expectation was. So to then decide that you’re going to turn your office into a bedroom is not appropriate.”

I personally think the government should build a dorm for Congressional members to stay at if they want. Because you are required to keep a home residence - it is your home residence, after all - and pay for something in Washington. $175K would be comfortable living here in Dallas, not wealthy, but comfortable, but having to pay for a second place to sleep would add to that.

I don’t order a lot of stuff, but the USPS deliveries have tended to be delayed from when they originally say they’ll arrive.

When I worked (way back when) near the Pentagon, I rented a place in MD and did the commute. Arlington county would have been much closer, but it was cheaper to live in MD.

The Republicans’ hate of mass transit has kept them from investing in a DC regional train system, as can be found in most major capitols of the world. The DC metro, as it was, certainly was useful (when I was there) but there is no where near enough rail lines going to where people live (in VA and MD.)

Living in Japan really spoiled me, I guess. Just think: leaders who really try to make urban areas work rather than just shit on them (i.e. Trump.)

I agree 100%. It is costly to maintain 2 residences — it’s not just the rent, but furniture, utilities, transportation, and often weekly travel between one’s home district and D.C. The suggestion of a dormitory sounds like a reasonable alternative.

The madness that permeates Trump supporters — from a FB friend (IRL acquaintance):

Is anyone paying attention to the Biden plan to reinstate the Obama-
Biden plan to change the suburbs from self governing entities with local planning and zoning to coming under the federal government control to bring in high density, reconstruction of parks, eliminating single family residential zoning to accommodate regulations for equalizing and eliminating the suburbs as we know them.
Under Obama this started under Obama through HUD community block grants mandates.
If communities didn’t comply they would get sued.
Trump shut down a good part of this in order to allow the suburbs to have the money they need for road inprovrments etc.
Suburban voters, please pay attention to who wants to change how your local governments govern your communities.
Local control is guaranteed by your state constitutions.
The acronym for this under Obama Biden was AFFFH.
This has already started in parts of Westchester County.
What this means is that as diverse as our suburbs already are, Biden wants to centralize the control of our local communities under a nationalize plan under bureaucrats in Washington.
Don’t believe this? Just watch Stanley Kurtz on Life Liberty and Levin on Demand from Sunday July 26,2020.

She’s an intelligent, well-educated woman with her own business — but once you join a cult, you lose your ability to think rationally. She also keeps on pushing hydroxycholoroquine. Not that it matters — but she’s a middle-age woman married to another woman.

Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus  Jul 29, 2020 • 9:05:30pm

After work I used to spend some time in Georgetown and found a nice little coffee shop at which to hang out. I couldn’t afford to live in that neighborhood (only lobbyists and independently wealthy types, or foreign government employees, etc.) could afford to live there.

So I realize there will always be those Congress folk for whom their salary is an important part of their annual income and as such they simply can’t afford to live in DC.

At least in the neighborhoods in which they’d feel comfortable.

Living across the river in the convenient parts of Arlington is also expensive, as is the MD side of the river.

But there are many places around DC where one can afford to rent if one only has a merely mortal income.

Someone like Romney can afford to live anywhere. Many Senators are very rich. Some of the Representatives are pretty wealthy too.

Yet I want to believe that anyone in the US ought to be able to run for Congress, which means non-wealthy folk should be able to run for Congress.

re: #67 Belafon

I personally think the government should build a dorm for Congressional members to stay at if they want. Because you are required to keep a home residence - it is your home residence, after all - and pay for something in Washington. $175K would be comfortable living here in Dallas, not wealthy, but comfortable, but having to pay for a second place to sleep would add to that.

It’s a good idea. Long-stay suites with kitchen facilities, perhaps different sizes to allow families. A lot of well-off reps and senators will opt for their own places, especially the multi-term ‘lifers,’ but it would be a good option to have.

I like Jaunte’s suggestion that the Trump DC Hotel could be retrofitted once his Org goes bankrupt and his spawn go to jail or flee the country.
