STANDARDS: MILES APART

I just read morning news that Nancy Pelosi has said Anthony Weiner can stay on as Representative from NY district ????. She will not ask for his resignation. That is the Liberal standard.
This while another news report says Police are investigating whether Weiner sent one his picturesque Tweets to a 17 year old girl.
John Boehner told Chris Lee (also a representive from NY) to pack his bags immediately after he had contacted someone on Twitter with a bare chested picture. I have seen the worst of the Anthony photos and I cannot believe that he is not resigning. What a contrast to Pelosi’s “he does not need to resign!!!
Of course Charlie Rangel supported Weiner…Charlie says that at least he did not try to date “little boys” or “go with prostitutes”. Charlie’s definition of ethics and morals reflects the Liberals “anything goes” attitude and policies. Rangel could have added “at least he did not break every ethics law in the books” as well. Rangel is still in the House after getting a slap on the wrist with a “censure”.
The Congress seems to lead the way in his nation’s deeper and deeper descent into Amorality. And we voted them into office. What next?
I am too much a part of the older generation who EXPECTS common decency and good moral leadership from those who supposedly represent us.
It is no longer true, sadly.

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!
