The Rogue Speaks:
Rod and I are leaving on vacation tomorrow, and since I don't have a laptop, I will be computerless until I get home. This means I will miss the Saturday Centus, and also miss commenting on all of the offerings for Alphabe-Thursday. I decided to do something a little different for this week's Alphabe-Thursday. I have so many wonderful bloggers on my side-bars, so in order to broaden your blogging horizons, I am asking that you pick one, and leave me a comment about it. You can also choose one from my links list if you like.
I always look at every entry for Saturday Centus and Alphabe-Thursday, and I have "met" some fascinating bloggers that way. I am sure you will as well! Below are a couple of photos of Jekyll Island, so you can see just why we are going there.
Since I have been known to go on tirades when it comes to politics, I would like to leave you with some interesting statistics about the people in Washington who were elected to serve their constituants. Nearly half of the members in Congress are millionaires, while only 1% of the rest of us have that kind of wealth.
The average income of a member of the house of representatives is over $700,000, and in the senate that number is over $2,000,000. No wonder congress is fighting over extending the tax cuts for everyone except them!! We pay our fair share of taxes. Why can't they??
It is time that the American voters look ahead to new horizons, to a country where the average citizen is treated fairly, and given the same advantages as the members of congress have. WE PAY THEIR SALARIES! Why should we be made to suffer because of their greed??? They are supposed to be representing US, and not looking out for their own selfish interests.
That's all for now. I am going to begin packing my golfing clothes, swimsuit, tooth brush, sunscreen, and my Kindle. When I return, I'll have my reading list! We are going to Jekyll Island, a national seashore off the Georgia coast. I wanted to show you a photo of our room there, but couldn't find one. Instead, here is a photo of the room we are leaving behind for a week or so.
