Gerald Ford - was not in the line of succession when appointed Vice President, and subsequently

President upon the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

He was the House minority leader, elected only by the people of his Michigan district to represent them in Congress.

This has no direct bearing on speculation of how and who could replace Trump, but is worth noting as an aberration of the typical route to the Presidency.

GOP voters, including farmers, need to remember that "you get what you sow."

The buck stops at the Top. 45 hired him.

If 45 didn't know what kind of person Flynn was, 45 should have known before putting Flynn in that position.

Flynn will likely join the lecture circuit, as well as get a gig on Fox. nt

Tucker Carlson - What's with the quizzical look he holds on his face

all the while a guest is expounding?

His mouth hangs open and his face has a half 'can't believe I'm hearing this' and half 'you're lying' look.
I quickly move on.

To Muslim shop-keepers: I'm glad you are in my neighborhood

One of my face-book friends wrote this recently. Too good not to share:

To Muslim Shop-Keepers: I'm glad you are in my neighborhood.

That's what I told them. I walked to nearby shops and eateries and said:
I wish you peace, health, and prosperity. I wish an end to this hate. Welcome.
I'm glad you're in the neighborood.

I could do this: It was personal and direct. It depended on me alone, not a vote in Congress.
I could do it, and so I did.

A middle-aged woman in a head-scarf came from behind the counter and hugged me.

An old man smiled, his hands never stopping the work of making sandwiches.

A man peered from behind a display of dried fruit, listening.

Young men, dark-haired heads bent over lunch plates at four tiny tables, looked up.

The waitress, her long dark hair in a ponytail, began to cry. She reached out and squeezed my hand.

A man, one hand on the door-knob, the other holding a heavy grocery bag, turned to me," You give us hope."
