Cardboard cutout Congresswoman to have town hall meeting

Posted by James McPherson on August 30, 2011

Though she’s not advertising it on her own website (a mistake, since one would think that her supporters would be more likely than her detractors to read it), Cathy McMorris Rodgers apparently will host a town hall meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m.

I’ll be there. If you can’t be, and there’s anything you’d like me to ask her, let me know and I’ll try.

    I know this is to late and yes it is a joke. Ask her where the BC is. LOL.

    This election is going to be a mess and I suspect your Congresswoman is taking the advice of both sides. That town hall meetings are a bad idea in a economy as we have currently. Everyone is Washington is to busy blaming each other and of course President Bush, when in fact the whole world economy is and has been is decline for years. The changing over to the Euro was a big mistake in Europe and I said so at the time. Now when one country fails all the domino’s fall. Bad idea. The only economy that is growing true growth right now is China due to two key factors. One is stupid Americans buying cheaper product thinking they are saving money when in fact the products are a lower quality and last about 1/10th the time of one was a good American product. Two is the transferring of technology from the 1990’s to present from trade deals and of course the hacking mega system they have built. In the 1990 the President at the time let highly classified electronic equipment allowed to be sent to China. This is where they learned to build a smarter bomb and planes. Today GE is trying to build jet engines over there and if you have seen pictures of their new jet fighters lately it has a very similar resemblance to ours. We are in a no win situation with China now and they know it. If we stop buying there crap, they will fail and we will have 1.6 billion hungry people with a huge and very modern military. Thanks to us. So what would I ask a Congress person if I were to attend a town hall meeting?

    Can’t you people in Washington understand that both sides are wrong and are the most responsible for this mess we are in?
