Senator Mitch McConnell and Agent Kevin McCarthy rant about the deficiency of bipartisanship in Congress. They claim Democrats are working with their slim majority to ram by means of the Biden Agenda. An agenda that will help decreased and center economic households and which those households support with their election of Joe Biden.
When Speaker Nancy Pelosi appoints Rep. Liz Cheney, a staunch Republican, to the Jan. 6 Special Committee, she is attempting to reach out to Republicans. McCarthy will get to appoint five much more Republicans bringing the committee to a 7-Democrat, 6-Republican element. Truly bipartisan.
Nonetheless, McCarthy refuses to examine the gatherings that endangered him, Congress and our procedure of governing administration. Just about every day, Republicans in Congress clearly show who they treatment about and function for. On their own.
Kudos to you for that succinct editorial these days (July 4): “Surfside Tragedy: Who’s Checking the Screens?”
You brought out the huge issues faced by volunteer condo boards and the municipalities they reside in. What a wakeup phone!
I pray some remedies will evolve following the dust (practically) settles.

Prayer an individual’s choice, not government’s
The Sunday Publish, web site 15A, carries a full-page paid advertisement, A single Country Below GOD, which declares, in the area titled SUPREME Courtroom RULINGS, “…in 1962, when the Supreme Court docket struck down voluntary prayers in schools….”
This statement not only misreads but reverses the Court’s Engle vs. Vitale unanimous decision, which obviously declared that, under the institution clause of the Very first Modification, “it is no component of the business enterprise of government to compose formal prayers for any group of the American individuals to recite as a part of a religious plan carried on by federal government.”
In other terms, institutionally mandated prayers in schools are unconstitutional. College students, on the other hand, are individually, voluntarily fully free of charge to pray or not pray, alone or in groups, as long as they really do not disrupt the university or interfere with the rights of many others – in any language and to any divinity or plan they would like. Many thanks to the Supreme Court, community college pupils can pray any time, anywhere….

Government’s genuine purpose oft forgotten
Once yet again, our company-pleasant legislature has created a situation in which Floridians pay back with their funds and lives. Residing in this point out since 1971, I keep in mind a litany of legislation designed to advantage those people who settle for company welfare, only to get the job done from restrictions that would ensure the protection and stability of working People. Greed seems to be the basis for numerous, if not most, of the guidelines enacted in the past 50 many years – cronyism and heartless adherence to ideology have contributed to our present problem.
Have to have unemployment compensation thanks to a international pandemic? Want assurance that you homeowners’ coverage organization will not gouge you? Expect developers to fork out their share of enhanced infrastructure expenses? Want your condominium making to be inspected for protection? When you transform on your faucet, do you believe your h2o is secure? …Superior luck locating legislation to assist these aspirations.
It is past time that authorities for the men and women, by the individuals be returned.
