    How about "Butts and Muzzles" from the 16 count manual?

    No problem w/ Scott. He was never indicted or included in any part of the fraud investigation. He wasn't involved according to Federal investigators.

    I did not vote for Mittens in 2012 - he's too Bidenesque.

    You are indeed correct there, though this did happen at the company he founded and was Ceo of at the time of the fraudulent behavior. But he was not indicted

    Career politicians are certainly a problem. Biden, Pelosi, Schumer... just between those three you probably have ~150 years of government. It’s no wonder they are completely out of touch. The Republicans aren’t really any better though, they have their share of career politicians as well. This is a bipartisan issue if there ever was one. Which is exactly why the politicians will never impose term limits on themselves, because if there’s one thing both sides agree on it’s protecting that sweet taxpayer funded gravy train.

    I believe that Pelosi has gotten her $ thru her husbands investments.

    Yes, I believe that’s true. Really, their wealth is not an issue for me (except Biden, who didn’t come from money, didn’t marry money, and certainly never earned money in the private sector). The rich have every right to serve our country as elected officials. I just wish they were limited to serving it for: not more than 4 terms (8 yrs) in the House, not more than 2 terms (12 yrs) in the Senate, and not more than 2 terms (8 yrs) as POTUS/VPOTUS. AND not more than 16 years cumulatively as a federal elected official.
