House Panel Recommends Censure for Rangel -

When it comes to corruption in the gov't we have NO tolerance.  The House ethics committee on Thursday recommended that Representative (Democrat) be formally censured for ethical misconduct, the most serious punishment the House can mete out to a member short of expulsion. Charles B. Rangel    WHAT WAS HE FOUND GUILTY OF? 11 counts of ethical violations, including improper fund-raising, failure to pay taxes on rental income and failure to report personal income on his Congressional financial disclosure forms. The committee also ordered him to pay thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes from rental income on a villa he owns in the Dominican Republic.

   The NY Times said: "A censure would mark a momentous downfall for Mr. Rangel, a Democrat who for 40 years has represented Harlem, where he was born. As a decorated Korean War veteran and civil rights advocate, he became a combative and irrepressible voice for liberal causes and, in 2007, snared one of the most powerful positions in Congress, the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee."
  He needs to GO. We think that censuring isn't harsh enough. This kind of Corruption has no place in running the country.  Democrat or Republican, it doesn't matter.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
