    Contempt of Congress...

    I've often wondered why it's a crime when Congress shows the nation and its citizens so much contempt first...
    The next steps include a full vote on the House floor. Unlike the civil-contempt vote for Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn that passed on Tuesday, the resolution from the oversight committee includes both civil and criminal contempt.

    I plead guilty to holding Congress in contempt.

    It might be the cozy little safe spot I've built around myself, but I literally know nobody who is talking about this. My only real exposure to the outside world is my neighbors and the guys I see at the golf course and the Elks lodge. At least round these parts nobody cares what this congress does. Strange days.
