Scroll down....















Neither!!!! It's the 535 members of the
United States Congress
. The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.


Amazing facts, aren't they? I rec'd this from Erik in an email, you decide. We're both so discontented with Congress these days we want to bawl!!---------

  2. I love the caterpillar! As for those statistics on our Congress members, I'm appalled. To think they are writing laws for us is just disgusting.

  8. After thinking about this, I just did some research on your list. Snopes has mixed reports on this list that is very old. It's one of those email things that keeps going around and around. Check it out and decide for yourself: http://www.snopes.com/politics/crime/congress.asp

  10. Anni,

    I don't doubt it one bit. The lawmakers think, for some reason, they are above the law. Makes me madder than a wet hen.

    Still haven't figured out what went wrong with my blog. It's a mess.

    Hope you and Bud are well.

    Blessings, Mary

    1. Mary, hope you can figure it all out. This new interface is something I must learn also since I read that they're stopping the option of going to the old interface soon.

  11. Beautiful caterpillar... Love those colors!!!!!

    I had seen that piece about Congress... I'm not one bit surprised... There's so much corruption in Washington DC ---and it's been going on for years and years.... Really upsetting --but true.
    Hugs,

  17. I get on here never know what will greet me. Today it's sunflowers, and a very fat bug! With pretty stripes, however. Those statistics do give me pause. I vote, but it doesn't seem to help all that much.
