COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of June 2, 2017

R staffers have no enthusiasm to defend their Boss’s position: As you know, I am focusing on the offices which have voted against the 10th Amendment. This week the legislative assistants expressed a stark contrast between their personal view and the Congressman’s. One came out in the first minute to say he completely agreed with the COP view. Others simply stated the Boss opposed anything which could lead to any legalization — with the non-verbal communication of ‘I don’t believe what I am saying, but I have to say it anyway.’ Like Sean Spicer explaining Trump.

DC cops ..wink,nod at shirt: Friday, after a week of 23 presentations, I treated myself a burrito, chips and guac at the Chipotles in Union Station. Two, uniformed DC cops were enjoying their food, when they looked up to read my ‘all-drugs’ t-shirt (I had changed from my dress shirt for the ride home). They grinned, gave me a head nod of approval and returned to their burrito.

At Panera’s on Saturday two SWAT officers engaged me with ‘Why?’ 7 minutes later (many in the café were listening), we shook hands and continued our days. Damn nice change from 20 years ago.
