General information

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) was created by an Act of Congress on June 23, 1860 and opened its doors nine months later on March 4, 1861. With 1,700 employees, GPO is the Federal Government’s primary centralized resource for gathering, cataloging, producing, providing, authenticating, and preserving published U.S. Government information in digital and tangible formats. GPO is responsible for the production and distribution of information products and services for all three branches of the Federal Government, including U.S. passports for the Department of State as well as the official publications of Congress, the White House, and other Federal agencies. In addition to publication sales, GPO provides for permanent public access to Federal Government information at no charge through GPO’s govinfo (www.govinfo.gov) and through partnerships with approximately 1,100 libraries nationwide participating in the Federal Depository Library Program. In December 2014, Congress passed legislation and President Barack Obama signed into law that the U.S. Government Printing Office would now be called the U.S. Government Publishing Office.

I would throw out the impeachment against Trump as the words "fight like hell" are commonly used terminology by Presidents 1. Biden said "I would Beat the hell" out of Trump which is similar word use. Biden could also be linked to deaths as mask wearing is linked to some reduction in oxygen supply to the body. A recent study shows that infections increase with masks 2. Democrat James K. Polk said "54 40 or fight" 3. Lincoln said "want to fight for the negroes" 4. McCain and Jesse Jackson said "Fight to your rights" 5. Obama supposedly said "If they bring a knife to a fight I will bring a gun" I did not where he said that, But I saw the quote online today 6. The result of the impeachment would be every president,senator, representative could be impeached as they were all trying to win elections or fight for victory. Equal justice under the law would raise questions if all the Presidents who used the word fight need to also be removed? James T. Struck BA, BS, AA, mLIS PO BOX 61 Evanston IL 60204
When the fraudulent "results" of the 2020 Presidential election are presented to Congress on January 6th, every Senator will have a choice: object to the fraud ... or be seen as endorsing it. We, the American people, will be watching this vote closely - and we will not forget how each Senator votes on January 6th. Senators, do the right thing and Stand Your Ground! Remember, we will remember your action when it come to re-election. We vote. Mike and Ruth Matthews St. Joseph, Mo 64506
HOW ABOUT A LAW THAT STATES NO POLITICAN CAN MAKE MORE THAN TWO AND A HALF TIMES THE AMOUNT OF A DISABLED PERSON MAKES ON SSI... INSTEAD OF DEFUNDING THE POLICE WE SHOULD DEFUND THE POLITICANS WITH ALL POLITICAL DONATIONS AND MONEY SHOULD BE PUT INTO A COLLECTIVE POT. THEN, DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF UNITED STATES CITIZENS IN THAT PARTY DETERMINES THE SIZE OF THE BUDGET THEY GET FROM THE POOL. THIS TAKES THE CORRUPTION OUT OF DONATIONS AND ALL LOBBYISTS SHOULD BE OUTLAWED!!! A POLITICAN SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH THE PEOPLE NOT THE CORPORATIONS!!! THAT'S JUST ME. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT???

Hello. I received a 9 lbs. of "Know your financial adviser" loose leaf papers I didn't ask for this and I don't know what to do with it. I will keep the box until you contact me and tell me if you want it back or dispose of it. I'm sure it was a mistake. Thank you for your service. Your organization is very helpful and I appreciate you.
