...Politics...

So I spent the majority of my weekend attending a political leadership training program. No I did not want to attend this. But my government professor gave all of us the option that if we attended the seminar/training then we would not have to attend his class for a little over two weeks and we would get an automaic 'A' on our next test...so naturally I opted for this because his class is at 7:40am. It was ran by some organization out of washinginto called the Leadership Institute. All in all it wasn't terrible. Got me thinking a little more about politics which usually I try to avoid.Anyway just wanted to share two random facts one of which I was already aware of...

First during the summer of 2009 Nancy Pelosi apparently spent $3000 of tax payer money on cut flowers for her office. Of course this was during hard economic times. (article on it)

Second. I will present as a question...
"Do the words "separation of church and state" appear in the constitution?



The answer...no...we get the phrase from a letter written by President Thomas Jefferson in 1802 to Baptists, and its meaning is to keep the government or state from running the church. (link)


Well i just thought I'd share that, also its two reasons why I don't like politics.
