Why not? Hold the Soap Box Derby on the weekend when the Royal Family are at their southern estates. Someone should be getting use of the White House on the weekends. Maybe a tradition should be started allowing community picnickers to use the White House on the weekend. I understand that it has a large kitchen space.
Capital Hill does belong to we the ppl. A family outing to watch the children on our historical country's birthplace what could be more memorable and thrilling. Like to see some political officials with their children in the festivities.
I'm voting YEA, but it infuriates me for Congress to spend time on stuff like this! This derby has been going on for many years! Does it just HAVE TO be held on the Capitol grounds?! Isn't this just a matter of prestige (okay, AND tradition)??? There are so many pressing issues that Congress needs to focus on, and this is not one of them!
They say it's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, so I'm going to keep squeaking LOUDLY! GET BUSY AND TAKE MEASURES TO START HARDENING OUR ELECTRICAL GRIDS AGAINST AN EMP ATTACK BY NORTH KOREA, IRAN, OR ONE OF OUR OTHER ENEMIES, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
