About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Let's say You and I are Republican Congressional Leaders..

Just for a moment... Imagine.
What do we do with the new President Trump? Steve Bannon is out of control and Trump is tweeting like crazy. Mocking Democratic leaders and putting out Executive Orders without telling us., or even giving us a heads up on what is coming...so..What do we do????

..Here is what I think is happening. (I have no clue, of course) If I was Republican leadership, I would warn Trump that he is doing things that are impeachable. Before serious action, take ever single step possible to try to stop what seems to be an out of control situation. Every step that can be thought of. Talking to those who have complete access to President Trump..whoever and wherever they may be. A systematic approach to trying to control and change what seems to be a kind of self destructive path to impeachment.

..I believe we are still in this stage as far as Republican leadership is concerned. What day is it? Day 11 or 12?.. Republican leadership will try to change and quiet the situation. Then, if change does not happen in a way that appears stable and for the nation's interest, action will be taken. It will be swift, precise, and complete.....but... we are not there yet, as far as Republican Congressional Leadership is concerned...We, the Republican Leaders will go there if we must, but this is only the 2nd week. Lets give him a chance to change, before the most drastic steps are taken...
.....that is what I think is happening, and that is why it appears that Republican Congressional leaders are standing with the new President. They are, as this is written, .. trying to change and correct a situation which may be impossible to change. At least they are trying before they take other more drastic steps...And they will continue trying this tactic...for a while....

Three, Just 3 Senators could restore balance.

If 3 senators change party affiliation to the Democratic Party, some sort of balance will be restored..
Checks and balances are needed to protect this country. They are inherent in the way the system works.. Can this happen? Why Not? If the leader of a foreign country can hack our election to change the outcome and put Trump into power, than anything can happen.
Willl it happen..?? Probably Not.....But...It could....

That is up to three Republican Senators who would wish to restore the checks and balances that our system relies on...and was founded on. It ain't up to me.................

.It is up to any three that care more about the U.S.A. than the Republican Party...

In Losing the Rams, St. Louis Wins: New York Times, Jan 15, 2016

Informative and fascinating story about the economic advantages for St. Louis, in not keeping the Rams there. When they moved back to LA, (which they did this season) St Louis and its people saved a ton of money that it really didn't have. This article explains that. (and it explains that the move a year ago was about building a new stadium with public money which is what the owner demanded.) St. Louis and Missouri tried to meet those demands, but the owner moved anyway, because it seemed that LA was a much better market than St. Louis.. This article exposes the true nature of sports finances and team moves. Yes, this is a year old, but with the announcement of the San Diego Chargers moving to LA, it explains motives and backgrounds for such moves. And these moves are not about fan loyalty of the city involved.

Donít cry for St. Louis, sports fans.

The departure of the Rams to Los Angeles, whence they came two decades ago, is something for the cityís residents to cheer, not bemoan. St. Louis got lucky.

Sure, fans of professional football in St. Louis are going to miss the Rams. Though they have been bad in recent years, they had some great seasons in St. Louis. From 1998 to 2003, Kurt Warner ó one of the greatest undrafted players in N.F.L. history ó set the city on its ear, winning two Most Valuable Player Awards as the Ramsí quarterback and leading the team to a Super Bowl victory after the 1999 season.

But the economics underpinning the recent deal St. Louis and the State of Missouri tried to put together to keep the Rams would have been financially ruinous. Letís not be coy about this: St. Louis, a city of fewer than 320,000 people, with a shrinking tax base, simply couldnít afford to help finance the $1 billion stadium that the Ramsí billionaire owner, E. Stanley Kroenke, was seeking. Its mistake was in trying.
