Insanity

Trump is still claiming that he won the last election, even though he has no proof to back up his fraudulent assertion and this has come to be what it means to be a Republican, thus their identity is entwined with a much-disproven lie that aims to directly undermine the foundations of American democracy, because a lie that keeps getting repeated, has a chance of becoming the truth.

Red Herring

Brian Laundrie’s parents probably lied about their son’s whereabouts when they claimed that he went to the Carlton Reserve, so they could buy him more time to escape.  If Brian’s parents were billed for the cost of this wild goose chase, that would prevent them from being able to send money to their most likely guilty son.

What A Sweet Deal

The House works about two days a week and the Senate works a little more than that, according to federal records.  The 117th Congress is scheduled to have 101 voting days and 59 committee work days, for a total of 160 days, but more legislative days does not equate to more legislation.  Congress started their 8-week vacation on July 30th and they will be back in session on September 20th, and although I am not certain, I think that they still are allowed to collect daily per diems of $250 to pay for dinner in the meantime.  August recess for the Senate starts after August 6th and they are scheduled to return on September 13th.
