Wednesday Observations

Ever since I was a little girl I've had difficulty understanding why the people of Washington D.C. don't have a vote that matters. They have to pay the same taxes, as well as house the President, Congress, the Supreme Court and various world dignitaries on a daily basis. But when push comes to shove, they have very little say in local or national government. They weren't eligible to vote for President until 1961 and didn't have their own mayor until 1973. Isn't it time for one of the largest slave trading cities in America to let its citizens have an equal say in government? No taxation without representation, as the old saying goes. And isn't it a little hypocritical to for the White House to use the Constitution as an excuse for not changing?

So the crew without a clue have their very own 18 something time gap. Except for them it is 18 days, not minutes. This would be almost funny except for the fact that this is my government and representative to the world.

Her feet must be pretty big considering the size of her mouth, the woman should be ashamed of herself. But then the people reelected her, so I guess supporting the troops isn't a big thing in her district.

Finally! Progress and innovation at NASA. If we don't manage to blow ourselves up, we might make it into space. Again.
