A thought for the day

I believe (and have for a long time) that our representatives and Senators are each state's employees, representing that state in the federal house...the states should set their individual salaries, could decide if they wish term limits, decide their benefits, subject them to the same type health care of people in that state...etc.  Ridiculous that they become federal employees with pensions for life...and get the best health care in the world, much different than their constituents.  Fly first class, etc...etc.  I also believe that both houses should be in session no more than 30 days at a time...any other necessary voting, discussion etc...can be computer driven and telecommunicated from their home states.  Our representatives should live and work in the districts they represent...and only rarely go to meetings in Washington.

Vietnam: As an advisor and liaison I lead native troops but nonetheless was looked upon as the "supreme local power", way too muc...
