His immense ego, well documented first hand by his PHD niece Mary, and nearly every sane observer on the planet, simply prevents him from acknowledging decency, common sense or morality. It simply doesnt compute in his mind.
This clown show is continuing in an embarrassing display to the world. Never before, to the best of my knowledge, and hopefully never again, shall we get such an extremely poorly vetted candidate to represent Americas values to the free world. This administration, as we all know, was the equivalent of a political abortion on which America stands.
We need much better candidate vetting as we move on. Were Trumps shady financial dealings known? Yes! Were has morals lower than a snakess ass? Yes! Were his corrupt ties to financial institutions and corrupt foreign governments known? Hell yes! Yet he was vetted to run for the highest office in the land.
If we are going to move forward as a free and democratic nation and prevent this type of insideous takeover from ever occurring again, vetting needs to be greatly improved, perhaps with mental, financial, criminal and moral aspects brought into play during the process.
Thank God we can breath again. I never thought the election would be this close. Lets hope this Trump nightmare ends without too much more damage.
My jaw dropped. Why? I dont know. After all, its Trump. He was turning away from the mic when he said good.
If Im in err, I apologize to all.
We all fear the unknown. Whats worse, is when our fears become reality. No matter what, its doubtful that there will be a peaceful transition after the election. We need to be strong, and determined.
This is the most concise and un-nerving article that corroborates our worst fears. If necessary, we all will need to stand up for democracy.
Democracies survive when all major players respect the ground rules. They crumble when significant players start to flout those rulesand get away with it. Gerson has concluded that Trump is only too willing to circumvent Supreme Court decisions, is perfectly capable of issuing illegal orders to the military to attack domestic political opponents, and would likely show no compunction in ignoring an election result that doesnt go his way. Each time hes gotten away with crashing through a democratic constraint, his ambitions have escalated. During the impeachment hearings, Trumps lawyers argued that as president, he was above and outside the law. Postimpeachment, he has sought to implement this theory of governance.
With about a hundred days to go before the election, nows not the time to feed into Donald Trumps plans of becoming the worlds worst dictator. He needs us to protest so he can send in his goons. He needs us to rile up his base. He needs us to be the cause of the unrest that he believes will necessitate his remaining in office. Hes playing us, and were falling for it.
We need to be resilient. We need to keep our anger in check until after the election, because by doing so, we will remove the paper from the fires that hes trying to ignite.
Yes, there are many reasons to protest, but at this point in the game, I believe that the best damper on Trump is not falling for his lure - not giving him the civil unrest that Putin told him to unleash. Our community, community leaders, Democratic people of influence need to be on social media, television, and any open public forum to plead with our side to resist his trap until after the election.
If we can show restraint, with any kind of luck he will be removed from office, along with his sycophants and will be tried for all of the crimes and corruption they have inflicted on we, the people.
Here it is, another extortion play by state Republicans in WI. We seem to be getting slammed from every direction, and its nauseating.
The author of this article, which appeared in the Guardian, says to read it with a degree of speculation. It reveals several things about Trump that have been born from the Mueller report as well as from the Simpson and Fritsch book, Crime In Progress. It is a very interesting read.
People in Washington must have known much about Donald Trump before he ran for president, but yet, there he is, a possible (?) Confidential Informant.
If true, its no surprise. Not too much startles me anymore about the most compromised and corrupt President this country has ever suffered under.

More mental diarrhea from a Republican politician. He just doesnt quite get whats going on, and yet, was elected to a position of authority.

Apparently, Wisconsin State Senator David Craig doesnt quite get the gist of the pandemic.
As state government takes steps to protect the well-being of Wisconsinites, it is also important that state government not infringe upon fundamental rights of our citizenry, including the free exercise rights of individuals seeking to worship according to the dictates of their conscience.
Now then, aside the oblivious repercussions of group gatherings, lets talk about the proximity of pews and the six foot social separation suggestions. Pews that from the back of one pew to the front edge of the following pew, might be three feet apart. Oops! Wont work. More than half (wild guess) would never fit into the church under those circumstances.
This was just another mindless dribble from a Republican who still believes Lindbaugh and Hannity that this is no more than the flu. Absurd!
In my opinion, there were a few questions that resonated with voters, but not enough to address the serious issues that are so crucial at this point in America. There was plenty of bluster for position, but not nearly enough issue oriented debate. The questions from the moderators lacked substance, almost like they were afraid to bring up the corruption of whats his name in the Oval Office, how to deal with the aftermath of coverups, foreign intervention, vote rigging, the dismantling of the Justice Department, the emoluments clause, issues involving gun deaths in the country, the threat of white supremacy, the narrowing of wealth (mildly addressed), securing the basic tenets of the constitution, ......
All in all, this was more of a personality event than a substantive debate. No one candidate came out a winner.
Sometimes I think that I vent too much. I post and then start my day so I dont often get back to reply.
In any event, I view myself as sort of a silent member. I greatly respect and appreciate the opinions of those with much more insight, knowledge, intelligence and credibility than myself.
So, I was flattered that I was given a heart. Thank you.
