GARYWORDS by The Real GabbyGary – I’m sorry, but, any truly conscientious person who has been paying close attention to the daily, real news coming out of Washington, D.C., the home of the United States Congress, White House and various federal agencies, should already understand why the Impeachment Inquiry in the House of Representatives is taking place. However, some comments made by Facebook Friends, indicate this is not the case.
GARYTALK.COM – David Obey celebrated his 80th birthday October 3rd, 2018. For those of you who may not remember Dave, he was a United States Congressman, representing the Wisconsin 7th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives from 1969 to 2011. Obey (OH-Bee) was preceded by Melvin Laird, who resigned to take on the responsibility of Secretary of Defense in the Nixon administration. Prior to becoming a Congressman, Obey was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1963 and served there until 1969 when Laird took on the Secretary of Defense job. Obey’s work ethic and political ideals impressed me enough to influence my decision to try the political arena, myself, for a brief time.
GARYTALK.COM – It was great to see Candice Bergen on “The Late Show” with Steven Colbert recently (Wednesday, September 26, 2018). She was there to promote her return to television and CBS’s iconic “Murphy Brown” sitcom. She spent most of the time reminiscing about more than the old version of the show. A lot of the time was taken up telling Colbert about her date many years ago with our current president, Donald Trump, when she was a sweet, young, 18 year old student in the early 1960s.
