    Um. Here’s another of many clear, urgent reasons to watch all OUR public servants ALL the time. This poor woman has apparently never been challenged to actually DO anything whatever to justify her taxpayer funded paycheck…?!
    This is one more of those points where the taxpayers (poor folks) are supposed to step back, grab what’s left of their wallets, and holler, “Halt! Thief!”

        Think Good Thoughts…OM

        Although the word “swamp” might sound ominous (to the uneducated), swamps are really important and indispensable forested wetlands.

        While wetlands are truly unique, they must not be thought of as isolated and independent habitat. To the contrary, wetlands are vital to the health of all other biomes and to wildlife and humans everywhere.

        Wetlands are a critical part of our natural environment. They protect our shores from wave action, reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and improve water quality. They provide habitat for animals and plants and many contain a wide diversity of life, supporting plants and animals that are found nowhere else.

          With good thoughts Ms. de Castro:

          Swamp Thing
          The Chameleons

          I can already hear your tune
          Calling me across the room
          When the world and his wife are on my back again
          Not enough pleasure, too much pain
          When the world is too much with me (Please leave–just go away)
          I lose my mind completely (Please leave–just go now)
          In the side street something’s moving
          Look around, look around
          All around you walls are tumbling down
          Stop staring at the ground
          I can practically see your face
          And another revolutionary falls from grace
          Hear the thunder in your brain
          Not enough sunshine, too much rain
          When the light of life has gone (No change for the meter)
          And then the king of spivs will come (Selling blood by the liter)
          When nothing’s sacred anymore
          When the demon’s knocking on your door
          You’ll still be staring down at the floor
          Not too many hours from this hour
          So long
          The storm comes
          Or is it just another shower?
          Picking up the pieces
          Half alive in a nine-to-five
          Vacant eyes
          Is it any wonder?
          Primal scream at the TV screen
          Close your eyes
          Now the world is too much with me (Please leave–just go away)
          Before I lose my mind completely (Just leave–please go now)
          Now nothing’s sacred anymore
          When the demon’s breaking down your door
          You’ll still be staring down at the floor
          Not too many hours from this hour
          So long
          The storm comes
          Or is it just another shower?
          Now the rain has come
          Or is it just another shower

            Swamp thing, you make my heart sing
            You make everything groovy, swamp thing
            Swamp thing, I think I love you
            But I wanna know for sure
            Come on and hold me tight
            I love you
            Swamp thing, you make my heart sing
            You make everything groovy, swamp thing
            Swamp thing, I think you move me
            But I wanna know for sure
            Come on and hold me tight
            You move me
            Swamp thing, you make my heart sing
            You make…

    From my perspective, chaffetz bullied and disabled Ms. O’Connor from producing the information he was looking for, with the interrogation tactics he employed.
