Welcome to NewsFuturist.com Your source for information and news revolving around Washington, DC and its people.
Maybe you have wondered why Washington DC has always been a prominent city rather than being a political district. It is always on news. Foreigners knows the city even before they get to be there or know it in their World History class. Some people do not even had the chance to experience being a Washingtonian but they know how and what the city is up to.
Washington DC, as stated in Wikipedia.org, is the capital of the United States. It is the base of all the three branches of the federal government, and hosts 176 foreign embassies as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, non-profit organizations, lobbying groups, and professional associations.
Washington is special because it is not actually owned by any of the States. It also has no vote in Federal matters. DC stands for the District of Columbia. That’s where all the national laws of the United States are made and where congress and the president reside (as answered in Wiki.Answers.com).
