I now receive weekly updates from lifelong farmer, Chuck Grassley. Today’s show 2 out of 3 points bragging about increasing socialism and obviously ignoring his sworn oath to uphold the Constitution. Now. I am getting Social Security checks and even looking into a subsidized solar energy system for our house. So am I to blame for the creeping socialism destroying our nation? Like everyone I am dependent and to survive outside a hole in the ground, I’ve taken my farm subsidies. Bob Dorr jumped all over me as a hypocrite for doing so. He laid off when I explained that we wouldn’t be farming long if handicapped with being the only farmers without that advantage. Makes me feel like I’m living in 19th century Mississippi. The thing is, I didn’t take an oath.
“The Child Care and Development Block Grant has worked as a bipartisan solution for decades, providing families with flexible child care options – including in rural areas. My bill will expand eligibility for CCDBG while keeping costs low for hardworking families.
As a lifelong family farmer, I’m proud to serve as the voice for Rural America and farm families in the United States Senate. Farmers and producers across Iowa work tirelessly to feed and fuel the country and it’s always a privilege to recognize their hard work during National Agriculture Week.
I joined my colleagues in pushing the U.S. Treasury Department for more timely updates on Social Security and Medicare trust fund reports to protect these vital programs for seniors and generations to come.”
Ultimately it comes down to this: is it mine or ours? Leftists should rejoice in this photo because it shows triumph of their cause.
Maoist Chinese Execution after a ‘peoples tribunal’ in the land reform movement in Communist China. Huang, probably a landowner, paid for his ‘crime’ by being shot through his back. Jan, 1953. 20 Million Chinese were killed during the Communist PRC take over of China.
The men’s and women’s basketball teams each made it to the Sweet Sixteen.
First, I think any public education is evil. As is theft of any kind. My kid came home from his first couple weeks at university and as a response to my usual rants against the welfare state he said, “but we vote for it.” So that makes it alright to steal from a childless family to educate one who happens to live here?
But. Iowa has been the second biggest blessing in my life. I moved here, met my wife, and live among fine people. I just want to say how grateful I am to be an Iowan.
Both Iowa teams were defeated. Maybe they studied too much, eh?
I now receive an email called The Scoop. I remember Dawn saying that “scooping” is a no no in choral music. But anyway it is gracious of the senator to put out these messages for us common folk to reply to.
He and Joni have introduced The Student Act so students will be aware of the true risk of student loans
I say: Eliminate all government involvement in education and students will become responsible for themselves. Maybe it’s too late. But Band-aids don’t stop gushers.
He wants an end to mask mandates on public transportation.
I say end illegal searches and Soviet-like treatment of Americans who should be free to travel.
