Walking the line.... How do you like your eggs?

If you are out and about on Friday morning and want to share a meal with Billy Long, he'll be at the University Plaza for a breakfast fundraiser benefiting Greene County Republican Women.

Appearing with Billy will be Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. She's from Washington state, District 7, and she enjoys playing the piano, swimming, and reading American history. Cathy says she lives by former President Ronald Reagan's motto (quoting Harry Truman's remark about his Marshall Plan): "There's no limit to what a person can do or where one can go if one doesn't mind who gets the credit."

Tickets are $20. If you have any questions or to RSVP call Nick Maddux at (417)883-3387 or

Nick is one of Congressman Long's paid congressional staff. Legistorm lists Maddux as one of Long's Field Representatives for the first quarter 2011. Knowing that the Hatch Act has guidelines for federal employees and their involvement in political activities, we will have to trust that Maddux is keeping time logs as to when he is on the government payroll acting as Long's Field Representative and when he is engaged in political activities such as this event. We think Maddux is pictured in this photo below, but we are not sure which one is he.

The one with the 'calf-lick' on the left.

A federal employee, paid by the U. S. Congress is not to be engaged in political work while being paid a federal salary.

This is a combination of "sloppy" stupidity and illegal actions by Mr. Long.

You might want to get there early. Once the Congressman walks in you can expect a food shortage at the buffet.

The one on the right is the district dirrector for Long and is directly responsible for the activities of the one on the left. Both should be allowed the opportunity to resign and return to the private sector.

What does the district director do?

Apparently leads the efforts to violate federal laws by working on re-election efforts for his boss.

To bad the inbred media members in this area don't have a clue. But they're cute.

He makes over $100,000 to give direction to an inept district staff. But he bought a new home. Wonder if he used Murney?

The sad part of noting all of Long's issues is that no matter what you tell the people of the 7th district, they'll still vote for him next time around.

I hope that gets proven wrong.

I'm a Republican and I agree with you.
