The Whitehouse Blog

CarolDuhart2’s Whitehouse Blog

Some of you need to learn about government. And talk about it too. This is my site for political discussion that was simply that. I felt I needed this non-astrological space for some people who do not need to know what “Saturn square Uranus” means.
