Trump’s Illegal Flag & Questionable Congressional Actions
Trump’s flag violates local zoning laws and gets away with it!
When Trump purchased and rebuilt Mar-A-Lago, the grand mansion and estate in Palm Beach, Florida, he got into a dispute with the city fathers who are well known for being strict on zoning regulations.
Trump put up a 50-foot flag pole even though 30 feet is the maximum allowed to not be overly patriotic and offend other nationalities. The city imposed a $1,000 per day fine while Trump and city officials argued back and forth. Finally, when the fine had reached a total of $120,000 Trump proposed a solution: He would donate that amount to veteran’s organizations, would move the flag to a different spot in front of the mansion, and would only use a 30 foot flagpole. The city agreed.
So Trump brought in the company that does his golf course construction, had it build a 20-foot high grassy hill, and put the 30-foot flag pole on top of that. Now… would you rather have Trump negotiating an Iranian deal – or any deal, or would you rather have Hillary (‘What Difference Does It Make?’) handling ‘The Art of the Deal?’
Question Congressional Actions!
Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.
Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.
Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?” So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.
Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?” So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.
Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”
So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.
Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”
So they laid-off the night watchman.
NOW slowly, let it sink in.
Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?
Didn’t think so!
It was very simple and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.
The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977, TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
Hey, pretty efficient, huh???
AND NOW IT’S 2016 — 39 YEARS LATER — AND WE STILL IMPORT A LOT OF OIL
