Don't Worry... Grayson’s Not Disappearing


Schumer, who has always panicked when someone smarter than him walks into a room, made sure Grayson wouldn’t get into the Senate and, alas, we’re now stuck with Marco Rubio… and with Grayson out of Congress for at lest two years. This morning was his last few hours in the House before the new members were sworn in. He didn’t let it go to waste.

Obviously Paul Ryan will never allow either of Grayson’s last bills be voted on but he managed to slip in two last minute pieces of legislation while the GOP was skulking around gutting the Office of Congressional Ethics and not paying attention. One of Grayson’s bills calls for building a wall around every Trump property, and making Trump pay for them. If that passed, do you think Obama would sign it? I don’t.

The other bill would substitute Trump’s much ballyhooed registry of Muslims with a registry of violent bigots. That sounds a lot more useful for actual law and order, even if it misses the showy Trumpanzee pizzazz.

I gotta say, Orlando area taxpayers certainly have gotten their money’s worth from Grayson’s salary. We all have— and will look forward to seeing him again back in Congress as soon as possible.

On the other hand, politicians who won't be returning to Congress and who we hope to never hear of again: Steve Israel (Blue Dog-NY), Patrick Murphy (New Dem-FL), Frank Guinta (R-NH), Scott Garrett (R-NJ), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Ann Kirkpatrick (New Dem-AZ), Matt Salmon (R-AZ), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), John Kline (R-MN), John Mica (R-FL), Joe Pitts (R-PA), Gwen Graham (Blue Dog-FL), Loretta Sanchez (Blue Dog-CA), Randy Neugebauer (R-TX), Ander Crenshaw (R-FL), Curt Clawson (R-FL), Stephen Fincher (R-TN), Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Brad Ashford (Blue Dog-NE), Cresent Hardy (R-NV), Lord Boustany (R-LA) and Marlin Stutzman (R-IN).

Yes, Alan, we will miss having you in Congress. Greatly! I love your forthrightness and outspokenness. While the language in some of your emails was harsh, it was just what is now needed to stand up to Trump. This is war and no more playing nice! You are very courageous and the USA could sure use many more like you in government.

Please continue to say it like it is, Alan! And get back in Congress as soon as possible. Perhaps Floridians will be ready for you in 2018, if they gain any sense over the next two years.

It's not really smarter people that bug Schumer. Lots of people are smarter and still can be safely ignored. It's people like Grayson who are smarter and sneakier than Schumer that really get under his skin.

why not run for dnc chair? you could do a lot of good there. Florida is an awful place to run for office if you are a REAL leftist. And the lack of love from the DSCC (scummer) proves the Democrap party needs to be turned inside out. Who better to try??
