One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

"One of America's most iconic images is Old Glory flying pristinely and proudly over the U.S. Congress. But American flags fluttering this month atop the House office buildings on Capitol Hill where lawmakers and their staffs work each day were tattered, torn and neglected _ hardly worthy of a patriotic portrait."

"The flags -- in various states of disrepair -- were captured in photos and videos by The Washington Times as they rippled atop the Rayburn, Cannon and Longworth office buildings where the 435 members of the House of Representatives and their aides go to work each day. Congressional staffers and other passersby didn't even notice the poor state of the Stars and Strip"(

Great point. That's exactly how I feel. I am not heard, I am not represented. A lot of these people in office (Local, State and Federal)are not doing their job. Clean house in 2010!!!
