Congressmen like Mark Sanford who sleep
in their offices? ´It´s almost nasty,´ critics say

Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Schuyler Kropf

Congressmen who sleep in their D.C. offices — including Republicans from South Carolina — are under fire once again from Democrats irked over where they put their heads at night. The bunking habit, they contend, is both an abuse of taxpayer funds and, as one Mississippi Democrat termed it, "almost nasty." A letter from more than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, is asking for an ethics review into the "legality and propriety" of members using their offices as overnight apartments. U.S. Reps. Mark Sanford, R-Mount Pleasant; Trey Gowdy, R-Spartanburg; and Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, are

No big deal. Those people only work two days out of the week. So they are only there one night. And look how much less traffic there is

Where were these “sainted CBC” when one of their own was chasing skirts? The solution for this is for the Congressional members and senators remain in their districts and conduct their business via video conference.

Having to maintain two residences - one in your home state and another in DC is ridiculous. The states should own the houses for their Senators and Congressmen.

For example: A state could own a condo complex complete with security control and meeting rooms. The state could run a limo service for their state reps.

That way it becomes more viable for the non-wealthy who would like to serve one term and then go back to their previous job. Our leaders would be less embedded in DC and more connected with the needs of their state. When my company sends me out of town to do work for them they pay for where I stay.

And of course repeal the 17th amendment and have the Senators appointed by the state´s legislature as was the initial design. The end result of the 17th amendment was to give the MSM a large influence over who gets elected Senator.

Take one of the numerous vacant buildings in DC and convert it into a dorm, with a working kitchen and lounge downstairs. Communal bathroom. Women on one floor, men on the other. Problem solved.

They might even get more work done if they all have to live together.

An anagram of dormitory is "dirty room," and it might be argued that an office that is both worked in and lived in might be dirtier, at least before regular clean up, which is what all civilized people do anyway. There´s nothing wrong with a no frills lifestyle. Simplicity.

But why all the fuss? Rents as well as crime rates in the federal district are high, and congressmen neither make a great deal of money nor can afford extra security. A congressional office building would have to be one of the most secure places on the planet. No rent for a serving congressman. Then Uber to Reagan Airport for the commercial flight back home to South Carolina. I can see no reason to criticize Rep. Sanford. If that´s what he wants, who´s going to try to stop him?

Why should the liberal and socialist Democrat congressional black caucus give a crap if Republican members of congress snooze the night away in their offices, as that is no skin of the teeth of congressional black caucus members. Nobody else cares, but then again the congressional black caucus may be able to make a political issue out of their "concern" to a percentage of their very low information voting constituencies.

The asylum seeker who tried to blow up a packed tube train in west London has been jailed for 34 years. Ahmed Hassan was convicted of attempting to kill 93 commuters when he detonated his homemade bomb at Parsons Green Station on September 15 last year. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave said Hassan was a ´dangerous and devious individual´ who quietly went about plotting his attack with ´ruthless determination and almost military efficiency while pretending to be a model asylum seeker´.

White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office. ´It´s certainly going to – yeah,´ he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that ´we have plenty of time.´ But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more

Edward Swarthye´s dealings with the Elizabethan court is one of 350 examples of black people whose stories have been compiled in the book, Black Tudors. The book is the first detailed study of early black immigrants and explores Swarthye´s coming to England on a ship under the command of Sir Francis Drake.

Ever since she singlehandedly ruined Europe through her reckless immigration policy, Angela Merkel ought to be the last person to be handing out advice, now on Iran. Seems that Merkel favors the Iran Nuke Deal that was hatched by Obama, Kerry and the ayatollahs. She thinks it’s so splendid that, though nobody asked, she advised, no warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep hands off…or else. Apparently, she’s worried that since President Trump is on the verge of (wisely) nixing the arrangement, Netanyahu, through a whisper or two, could clinch it for him. Merkel, it’s being reported, told Netanyahu that if the United States

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity.

Trump’s declaration of a possible veto — citing the spending bill’s lack of full funding for his border wall and attention to undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers — comes as many lawmakers who would have to override his rejection or pass a stopgap funding measure are already on the way out of Washington for a two-week recess.
