The "squad" should challenge Trump to take a citizenship test...

They could take it too. Then Trump can show us how much he loves this country. If the "squad" outperforms Donald, I guess we can conclude that Trump doesn't love America enough.

Will Trump end Russian sanctions...

after Mueller indicted the 12 Russian spies?

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but ...

what if other nations decided to get in on United States politics too?

China won't let Russia get away with World dominance, nor will NATO. Suppose they decide to slip themselves into the 2018 and 2020 elections and they oppose Trump/Republicans. I don't think that the Republicans are thinking long game here. If they don't keep the Russians out, our elections could become a battleground for the World.

This could get really messy.

1. Any chance that Mrs. Trump is a Russian agent that keeps Donald focused? I think that she’s more involved than the press acknowledges.

2. Democrats should run their fall campaign against Russia. The Republicans have opened the door to that. Vote for an America, not Russia.

Just sayin’.

Is it true that crossing the border illegally is a misdemeanor?

I heard that on MSNBC this morning, I wanted to make sure.

If that is true, its an all time low to separate families for misdemeanor. Furthermore, to not be able to deal with this in a week is shameful.

Perhaps the worm will turn when China puts tariffs on US oil products...


Sure farmers are going to pay, but that was expected. Perhaps the unexpected is that crude oil products would be subject to tariffs.

Perhaps urban/suburban Americans will benefit because our country will have a surplus of oil, so prices may moderate.

Anyway, the "easy to win" trade wars can quickly spin out of control.

Children and PTSD, just wondering

I am not a gun owner, nor do I shoot at a gun range.

When I viewed the video of the Parkland shooting, I was stunned by how loud the gun sounded in the hallway. In my mind, I wonder if there might be a lot more casualties than the dead and the wounded. Think about all those shootings in schools. How many kids had to hear the loud gunshots and have nightmares or years later encounter PTSD.

Even the police wear ear protectors at the gun range.

Shame on America. What are we doing to our children so gun loving snowflakes can be fully satisfied.

Seriously, when you're in charge of each branch of government,

why does the vote have to be 2 hours before a deadline? If they were serious about running the country, the CHIP and DACA wouldn't be included in this bill. Last Friday's vote is typical of America's bullies: always creating a crisis to belittle or gain advantage from someone or some group.

I hope we buckle up for the long haul. We can't continue to push this confrontation down the road. Congressional Democrats need to force Republicans to their knees.

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?
