There Are Rules To Follow

Rules even apply to Congress women, Rep. Cynthia McKinney. But, I suppose she didn't realize, "wear your badge" didn't mean much. After all, she is in Congress; everyone should know her. But, that is not the point. If you slack on one thing, what else will you slack on. Had the officer, whom she hit, had let her get by, then the next one would expect the same treatment.

We expect children to obey the rules. The same applies to all other rules. But, her lawyer used the statement "just a victim of being in Congress while black." I suppose any excuse is better than no excuse at all.

Several Capitol Police officials have said the officer involved asked McKinney three times to stop. When she did not, he placed a hand on her and she hit him, they said.

Capitol Hill police have a job to do, and that job is to protect all 535 members and all the workers on Capitol Hill. If many don't comply, then this makes their job harder.

The safety of its members became a sensitive issue after a gunman in 1998 killed two officers outside the office of then-Republican Whip Tom DeLay of Texas.

Pride and contempt; modern day Pharisees, inhabiting places of political indulgence across this nation (and the world).

I hear say some "the lesser of two evils" I say evil is evil no matter how less it is, so don't vote at all! Send a message to those who want to be there for selfish reasons. There should be only one reason for someone to serve the public-- to glorify God, period!

Anything else is COMPROMISE!!

By the way, hello Barbara. Hope all is well. My apologies for not saying it sooner!

Cynthia is nothing but a bomb shell waiting to burst!

Glad to see you,Donnie. I missed your blog, when you were offline. I just found you this past week again. Glad to see you up and running again!

And, yes, all is well with me and my family. Just pray for my sis/i/law, who is battling Non-hodgkin's lymphoma. She's claiming healing, hanging on to her faith and God, no matter what the Drs say. Her name is JoAnn.

Confederateson, I'm sure there are many like here who don't like having to be checked out. But, I think she's the first one who has hit one of them, or, at least, the first one we've heard about.
