COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of March 16, 2018

Box of Chocolates: Is a way to describe my two hours at the weekly Grover Norquist meeting. We heard a Congressman ask for support on his bill. 20-25 other presentations on various conservative policies, finishing with reps from the House, Senate and White House give us a summary of what is going on.

I had 3 chats after the meeting; 2 people running for Congress and a solid chat with a gentleman from Costa Rica who runs a conservative think tank there. I urged him in Spanish to have Costa Rica become the ‘Uruguay’ of Central America. The Gringos are not paying attention, due to Colorado, etc. going legal. All positive.

The lingering effects of my flu limited by work this week. My voice is still iffy, thus I worked from home all but Wednesday…..hours are spent on Spanish, German and French studies.

This week’s stats:

241 chats with other elected officials, state reps, senators, VIPs, etc. 02 this week (candidates running for Congress)
