We ended our day in Congress – where we had to be searched –
pockets emptied – no phone for pictures
We settled in for about 45 minutes – and there was to be a vote –
But – NO ONE on the floor paid any attention –
they were divided on the right side and the left side –
The entire congress did nothing but talk –
So loud we – in the balcony – could not hear what they were saying
on the loud speakers!
I was disgusted at the whole thing and how they all acted.
All we could do was watch the electronic board to see the total of the votes.
We toured Union Station and had lunch – then boarded the Metro there
and got off at the Smithstonian in the Mall.
We left the Mall behind and walked to the front of the White House
We had covered a lot that day
and decided to see the front and the back
But on our way we came across a very peaceful protest
in front of the EPA building
They were not yelling – they were respectful when we talked to them
Now – I can not understand why anyone would be against clean air
Withe clean air comes better gas mileage
The one who was here first passed away several years ago
they have kept it here as each election
brings new Government
as a way to keep the power in the people
and a eye on what is going on.
Both Democrats and Republicans have seen this protest.
We had walked almost all DC with Jo and Paul
We covered everything plus on their list !
