David Young is working towards better infrastructure for Iowans

The lost issue nationally this election season has been infrastructure. It was talked about a lot in 2016, but little progress was made. It’s not that people don’t care anymore, but there are many other issues that are ranking higher to voters nationally.

In Iowa, infrastructure is still very important. Representative David Young has been working towards improving it. He will continue to help Iowans have better infrastructure to suit their unique needs if reelected.

“We rely on our infrastructure to get our goods to markets, to visit our families, and communicate with customers. In Congress, I’ve been working to upgrade our infrastructure.”

Upgrading our Infrastructure: Capitol Solutions

https://davidyoung.house.gov/media-center/weeklyreport/upgrading-our-infrastructure-capitol-solutionsAs I drive across the Third District to meet with my bosses in our sixteen counties, I cross bridges in need of repair, roads under construction, and utility lines being replaced. When I’m in the more rural parts of the district, just like others, I sometimes have difficulty connecting with others over the phone because of poor phone service. And I hear from families who don’t have reliable internet at home or at their small business.

Many Iowans share with me the need for infrastructure improvements across the Third District. And their concerns spread from our roads and bridges to our rail lines, and access to the internet.

Benjamin Netanyahu replies to calls for an early election in Israel

Israel is in the midst of political turmoil. The current government is held together by a razor-thin majority coalition. The Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, just took over as Defense Minister following the resignation of Avigdor Liberman last week. A tenuous cease fire is in place with Hamas in Gaza.

Now isn’t the time to be calling for early elections, the Prime Minister said.

Netanyahu meets with coalition partner to stop government collapse

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/nov/18/netanyahu-israel-prime-minister-meets-with-coalition-partner-to-stop-government-collapseThe Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is meeting with his top coalition partner in a “last effort” to prevent the collapse of his government which has been rocked by the resignation of its defence minister over a ceasefire agreement with Gaza militants.

Speaking at his weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said it would be unwise to embark on a divisive election campaign during such a sensitive time for Israeli security. He said he would try to convince the finance minister, Moshe Kahlon, and his centrist Kulanu party to stay in the fold.

“We are in one of the most complex security situations and during a period like this, you don’t topple a government. During a period like this, you don’t go to elections.”

He’s right. There are times when government shakeups simply don’t make sense. This is one of them for Israel. That’s not to say there’s ever a good time for a shakeup in Israel, but the last thing they need right now is another distraction.

Hey Kansas If you get Les Miles, the funny quotes come free

The Kansas Jayhawks have had a rough football season. They’ve had several rough football seasons. Today’s loss to the Oklahoma Sooners showed a spark of offense for a team that may not be as bad as their record indicates. They also got some good news on the coaching front.

Les Miles may be coming to Lawrence.

The coach that won a national championship with LSU and helped put Oklahoma State on the college football map may try to do the same for the Jayhawks if rumors turn out to be correct.

Beyond being a great coach, Miles has built a reputation for saying some of the funniest things to the press. Here’s one of my personal favorites:

“When I wake up in the morning and I turn that film on, it’s like reading a book and it’s exciting. I don’t read books, but if I read books it would be like reading a book.”

I do hope to see Miles coaching at KU. They need him. The Big 12 needs him. Football fans in general need him.

When gungrabbers like Eric Swalwell say they respect the 2nd Amendment, don’t believe them

When gungrabbers like Eric Swalwell say they respect the 2nd Amendment, don't believe them

It’s a lie. Every time, it’s a lie. Most leftist gungrabbers will add a note at the end of their gungrabbing rhetoric by pretending to respect the 2nd Amendment. They want you to think they’re pushing “common sense” gun control, because who doesn’t like common sense?

There isn’t a lick of common sense in any gun control measure. Anything that could have been considered common sense gun control, such as the Gun Control Act of 1968 that kept regulated interstate commerce to hamper mail-order gun purchases, have already been put in place. Anything going forward that appeals to common sense is unnecessary and damaging to the 2nd Amendment.

Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) once said he respects the 2nd Amendment.

“I support gun safety measures, and I’ll tell you, I grew up in a family of gun owners and hunters, and I went hunting with my dad as a kid, and you know, I have deep respect for the Second Amendment and the culture of our country.”

His statements on Twitter yesterday said all we need to know.
