Crapo...did he attend in the years of Jim McMahon? Kidding. Too bad he enters
this term with so much to be thinking about other than government. That is a
sad story, in my opinion.
Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona) is also a BYU
graduate, although she probably tries to avoid mentioning it as much as
possible.Rep. Labrador's first name is Raul, not Ral. He was

Taking into consideration where the world, especially the USA, is at today, I

individuals in government.
They may be in "impressive company" (i.e. Harvard and Yale), but they

someone who wasn't educated at Provo U. I know that Idaho will be
Considering the level of corruption in the US government, andespecially in
Congress, it seems, at best, ill-advised to be braggingabout high

A very reasonable case could be made foreven a much lower approval rating
given the job performance.I guess that is why many are called and
few chosen in what reallymatters (not positions in Congress by the way),
as they seek thethings of this world and the honors of men, above all else
includingproper governance—governance on behalf of the people
instead of theirown selfish interests. If anything describes the current
Congress itis blatant self-interest (selfishness and greed).
