Legislation to watch

Sen. Todd with his Watch Dogg

This in email today from Sen. Todd Young, Indiana.

Drain the Swamp

On Thursday, I introduced the DRAIN Act that requires federal agencies to relocate their headquarters outside of Washington, D.C. and closer to the communities they serve throughout the United States.  By relocating these agencies to smaller and less costly cities, not only will this legislation help our federal government become more efficient, it will help create new investment and opportunities in areas of the country that are struggling to compete economically.

Strengthen Oversight of VA Health Care

It’s unacceptable that VA health care, such a critical component of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs mission, remains beset by problems, delays, and failure to address pressing deficiencies. That’s why Senator Amy Klobuchar and I introduced a bill on Thursday to strengthen Congressional oversight and ensure that this Department addresses the issues identified by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

Ignorance, even well meaning ignorance, is not bliss

There is much publishing of the atrocities committed by Muslims, and their carnal, wicked behavior.

I believe there are also people who consider themselves to be Muslim because that is all they have known, who earnestly do want to obey the One and only person who is the One God of Abraham. They do not understand that Islam was created not by the God of Abraham but by one who desires the total destruction of all that the One God of Abraham created.

God seeks honest hearts and reveals his Truth to those who honestly will listen. Those Muslims who seek and meet the One God of Abraham will understand he is not Allah (el-Ah, the violent moon god of Ur from whom Abraham departed) but that the One God of Abraham made a human body and lived inside it to save, not destroy, everything he has created. And that presence of God in the human body was known as Jeshua the Messiah, that is Jesus the Christ.

Once they understand the One God of Abraham is the divine Spirit that lived in the body we know as Jesus Christ, and follow him, then they will finally find peace. In the world we have tribulations, but we can take courage because He has overcome the world.

Maranatha.

Know Jesus, know peace. No Jesus, no peace.

From an article on Digikey.com

As an alternative to commonly used passive cooling techniques, thermoelectric cooling can offer numerous advantages. These include accurate temperature control and faster response, the opportunity for fanless operation (subject to heat sink performance), reduced noise, space savings, reduced power consumption and the ability to cool components to sub-ambient temperatures.
