"By repeating his guilt"

I cought just that phrase from an @npr program last night. I'm not even sure which one because I was driving and traffic turned sour, fast. So after my drive I did some searching, and found this article[link:https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/inside-founding-fathers-debate-over-what-constituted-impeachable-offense-180965083/| from the @Smithsonian that tells of the debate over impeachment at the constitutional convention. I feel each and every US citizen should read what George Mason had to say in 1787 on the subject. My favorite part:

Shall any man be above justice?” Mason asked. “Shall that man be above it who can commit the most extensive injustice?” A presidential candidate might bribe the electors to gain the presidency, Mason suggested. “Shall the man who has practiced corruption, and by that means procured his appointment in the first instance, be suffered to escape punishment by repeating his guilt?”

Even repeating the false narrative

Even repeating the false narrative about the Bidens to debunk it or explain it's falsehood propagates it. There are those who will selectively hear the dirt part and dismiss the debunk parts as Democrats trying to cover for corruption. I feel this is a double edged sword that cuts us when first told, then again while trying to assert its falsehood.

I'm not sure exactly how to handle that, except to let others explain it's falseness. Or perhaps just refer to it as "that now debunked corruption theory"

Gah! Do they really want us to feel as dirty as we perceive them to be?

Mr. Nunes,

Mr. Nunes are you conspiring with others to obstruct justice? Sure looks that way to me.

They ATTACKED our democracy.

Our way of life. Our most basic principals. Our system of governance.

In my opinion that's an act of war, and Treason does indeed apply.

Our government, and others like us around the world just have not figured out how to deal with Russian meddling in our affairs.

Yet who will declare war when no bullets have been fired? No bombs dropped? No land taken over on? That i think is one question our Government MUST answer.

Yet instead of trying to secure our most basic ideal of "Of the people, by the people, for the people," these Bozos are pushing tax cuts for people that don't deed them, walls to keep out people that are truly oppressed, and caging the children of asylum seekers. All the while protecting the scumbag that continues reaping profits from Russia's incursion into our Presidential election

Close encounter of the 3(g) kind

3(g) - communication with an (un)intelligent alien being.

I'm a heavy equipment operator and recently had to take my machine to the mechanic for some quick repairs.

While waiting, the mechanic made a comment, I'm not exactly sure what it was, but it set me off.

"I'm not a big fan of Donald Trump," i said and this guy hit the roof!

"Why not?, who did you vote for? Not that Bitch hillary?" And it devolved from there. All the Dems were improperly enriched with special interest money. Hillary sold all our Uranium to the Russians and funneled the money thru the Clinton foundation, yada, yada, yada.

I really had to bite my tongue. I have to work with this guy and really want him to fix my equipment when it breaks. So i said something like "I do my own research and it looks like i need to do more"

"I'll tell you where you can get all the facts, watch Fox News. Those guys dont pull any punches and tell it like it really is." I almost gagged. The whole thing reminded me if a Star Trek Next Generation episode "The Game" where everyone is hooked on this mind controlled game that ends up controlling their minds.

Folks do your own research into the issues and think for yourselves.

The Brainwashed masses

I worry though. We are a divided country.

On the one side are the Trump supporters, a zealous lot that has been brainwashed by the "news" Fox (faux?) News. You know what I'm talking about. Hillary and the Uranium "sale" to Russia, and so many other successful misinformation spins.

On the other are folks that just don't buy into the whole misinformation thing.

Oh sure there are lots of people inbetween but my worry is on how to repatriate the brainwashed masses and keep the peace at the same time.
