    Perhaps you live in a different America than I do Heavy Duty. In the America that I live in the sins or crimes of the son and even the wife are not visited upon the father or any other relative. John Conyers is not his son or his wife. Perhaps the standard is different in Georgia?
    The standard that you wouldn't understand. See down here we live by morals and character. If my son took my car without my permission, I would still be responsible seeing that it's my job as a father to know where my son is at 12:30 if he is still living under my roof and my RESPONIBLITY as a public servant to protect and secure the property they ENTRUSTED to me.

    Sorry you wouldn't understand the responsibilities of what it takes to be a good employee to the people whom elected you. I bet if you took your company car home and your son took it and it was broken into your boss would have you standing front and center in his/her office the next day to fire your ass.

    I will sleep easier tonight safe in the knowledge that there are truly perfect parents in America.

    You can take your assumptions about me and file them in the appropriate place. You do not know me - know nothing of my employment history - and know nothing about how I treat any property entrusted to me.

    Maybe you can clarify it then. Were you ever elected and had employees working for you in which any of those employees abused government provided items for their own or their family's own benefit?

    When the answer is "No", feel free to stop blathering on about us not knowing you. Otherwise, provide a link to your successful election and explain your personal experiences and empathy with Mr. Conyers.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I do not know what the hell you are talking about. The kid took a car that he should not have taken. The father is paying for the damages and assumes rightful responsibility for it. Case closed.

    Unless this is about something else........ which some of you are obviously attempting to make it so. If this were a story wheer the name of John Conyers was changed to the name of John Boehner many who are excoriating Conyers would not so much as utter a tiny peep about it. And you damn well know it but will never admit it.

    But I know you will show your partisanship to come to the defense of a man whom is known for being a liar and take him for his word when his track record for lying is long and exposing. Tells us alittle about your character so we do know something about you.

    Sure you do. You made this about you and how we don't know you, so now explain. Fact is you haven't been elected, you have no empathetic history to bear on the subject so your comment about not knowing your personal history is irrelevant and used as an ad hominem tactic
    to wit your were called on it and now feign ignorance. Typical.

    His father should take full responsibility you're right, and should have his vehicle priveledges revoked and there probably should be an investigation as to why said child of Mr. Conyers was driving a government vehicle paid for by the American people in the first place. Glad we could agree.

    Misuse of government materials paid for by the taxpayers has no partisan free pass. If it's Boehner, Obama, Pelosi, don't care. Misuse is misuse and should be investigated.

    The push is for regular people to drive electric cars and a government rep buys one of the most expensive SUVs available with taxpayer money, not to mention the low gas milage.

    The example should start at the top.

    The assumptions were based on the values you expressed. When you protect irresponsibility, it's assumed you are irresponsible.
