Look for more than a Burgman on Craigslist

Paul Ryan's constituents place a Craigslist Lost and Found ad asking: 'Have you seen our Speaker?'
February 22, 2017

Unable to reach their congressional representatives the old-fashioned way by phone, email, and in person Americans across the country are getting creative.

This week, Republican lawmakers like Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa) and Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.) have faced angry constituents who peppered them with questions about everything from repealing the Affordable Care Act to President Trump's ties to Russia. Some of these representatives might run away from their meetings as fast as humanly possible, but at least they're showing up the same can't be said for House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.), Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.), and Rep. Paul Cook (Calif.), according to their constituents, who want to know why their congressmen aren't holding town halls or even letting people inside their offices.

In Wisconsin, the residents of Janesville are concerned over Ryan's whereabouts, so much so that they have placed a missing-person's ad in the Lost and Found section of the Madison Craigslist. "We had been planning on having an intervention at his recess town hall meetings, because he seems to be addicted to power, but he fled sometime in and around January 20, 2017, and hasn't been seen since," the ad states. To make sure people know who to look for, they included helpful photos of Ryan lifting weights while donning a backwards hat, a much different look than in this billboard in Wisconsin:

And last week, after a tussle at Rohrabacher's Huntington Beach office involving activists seeking a town hall meeting, one of his staffers, and a door, the California congressman accused the citizens of being "engaged in political thuggery, pure and simple." Here is an example of said thuggery on a local beach:

The search is also on in California's 8th District for Cook, who last appeared at an in-person town hall on Sept. 5, 2013. Anyone with any information is urged to visit www.WhereIsPaulCook.com. Catherine Garcia

It appears that the day of reckoning has arrived for the political class , truthfully I'm surprised it took this long . Will the middle class make a come back here in the good old U.S. of A ? we shall see ! If the Republicans think because they won all three branches of government , can go back to the way things were they are sadly mistaken . People voted for Trump because they've been left behind in fly over America , if things don't change and soon , they will be voted out . Now they have to govern and fix things , they have all three branches of government so it's do or die for them .

I wasn't aware the Supreme Court was Republican or Democrat for that matter. It is currently split 4 to 4 conservative to progressive. The Republicans do "control" the Executive and Legislative branches.

Sorry, off topic... Just a little humor...

Sung to the BeeGee's hit, "More than a Burgman, more than a Burgman to me..." Lol.
