Franken has a rare opportunity...

Its not often that America stops to hear the word of a U.S. Senator. In fact, most talks given by U.S. Senators are given in front of half empty sessions. Even then, its rare that anyone listens.

I believe that the cable networks will cover his speech live.

Franken can be humble and acknowledge that he has touched, tapped and maybe even pinched. He even might have kissed with lips closed or open.

After that he can stand straight and acknowledge that he works for the people of Minnesota. He can say that he believes in due process, as everyone should. If necessary, he can work as an independent for the people of Minnesota. He has experience and seniority, that counts for a lot.

He should say that he will stay, because he believes that the work is too important to walk away.

Let America listen to this...

Nullifying any presidential actions by Donald Trump

My question is:

Can a case be made by states, or class actions, that actions by a illegitimate government be nullified by courts?

If Trump/Pence, and Congressional Republicans are found to be illegitimate, will the country be able to roll back appointed judges, executive orders and any tax bill that might pass and be signed by Trump?

Certainly any judge appointed by Trump would have to recuse him/her self from the action.

What are your thoughts?

The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania Should Be Embarrassed!

Before his presidency, I found Trump to be mildly amusing. I assumed that he had this schtick that was a play to his audiences. But after 9 months of his presence in the White House, he has demonstrated himself to be uneducated, a boor, a sexual predator and an all around buffoon.

Shame on the Wharton School and the University of Pennsylvania for granting a bachelor's degree to this ignoramus. Obviously his degree was based on his father's gift to the school. If there ever was a case for rescinding a diploma, Trump is the number one candidate.

(I had to get that off my mind)

How to tell Republicans are serious about the unborn.

I am an individual that endorses choice. I believe that everyone should have the ability to make their own decisions regarding their health. Republicans will tell you that they are for choice, but that they are speaking for the unborn.

So, it occurred to me that Republicans want to establish the unborn as citizens. Back it up, I say. When the Republicans get around to giving tax credits for the unborn, I will believe that they are serious.

To follow their logic, it costs money to raise children. Thus a credit/deduction for children on state/federal taxes. It also costs money to prepare for the birth of a child. At tax time, give the families a credit for an unborn child if the birth will be in the next year.

Then I will know that Republicans take this life thing seriously.

Are the Republicans looking for planted material?

Is it possible that hackers have tried to place damaging material in Hillary Clintons emails? Their zealous persuit of her email material leads me to put on a tinfoil hat. They seem frustrated that it can't be found.

From 2009: Porn in the USA: Conservatives Are Biggest Consumers

So it shouldn't surprise anyone that Conservatives (probably White males) don't find any fault with Trump's actions.

I won't gloat, but I am pleased that

the Republicans have basically conceded the next 20 years on the Supreme Court to progressives. I suspect that Clinton will be a two term president, so there will be 4 to 6 positions on the court to fill. This was my greatest concern heading into this election. This will allow Clinton I judges to retire and force some of Bush appointments into retirement. Its the best news for our country!
