Special protection for those voting to impeach?

...should 'special', life-long if necessary, protection be provided any lawmaker and family receiving death threats for voting for impeachment?

...as we approach the Senate trial, you know trump will be encouraging and inspiring his right-wing goons to go out and intimidate and/or seek retribution from anyone voting to impeach...

...I never thought one person would ever be able to damage our country and democracy so completely...

...I never thought our institutions would be so impotent and fragile...3 years in the making and still counting...

...I sure hope I'm wrong...

…hang in there...

trumpy meaness everywhere


I cleaned up my 50 year old Panasonic RF 2200 (I love that radio), bought a new set of 'D' batteries and sat down to listen to some anticipated Christmas songs...surprise, surprise

...guess what I heard

"I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart...grease your knobby rod, grease your knobby rod..."...?

...why would anyone say that in a Christmas song?...and a few minutes later


"ho ho the mistletoe hung for all to see, somebody waits for you, kick her once for me...have a holly jolly..."

...kicking women is bad and something trump would do on Christmas; it's just not right...I tuned around when this little boy wanted to play his drum


"...come they told me, to rough up a bum, rough up a bum, rough up a bum..."

...how is it Christian to encourage children to harm people on Christmas?....then


...my niece Carol (who's a little over weight), said she found, "...candles in the windows, Carol's at the spinach..." a little offensive considering she's lost 15 pounds since September...(she hates spinach)

...again, trumpy meaness everywhere...I told her what I think is happening is trump's corrosive meaness is permeating even holiday songs and is ruinning our happy holiday season...

...she's now a never-trumper...

IMO, 3 questions that need to be resolved...

Is it acceptable to have a foreign government investigate a political rival especially in exchange for something of value?

Is the President above the law and beyond accountability?

Are lies and innuendo equal to facts?


I feel, in order to know how to play politics in the future we need to resolve these questions.

If having a foreign government investigate a political rival is acceptable, we need to find our own foreign government patrons.

If the President is above the law and beyond accountability, we need to develop policies and strategies to take full advantage.

If lies and innuendo are equal to facts, then we need to develop effective lies and innuendo to compete.


I think no matter what the outcome, Trump being impeached and tried will clarify and help resolve these questions.

If the game has changed, we need to know the new rules.

Should students refuse to attend school until adults can guarantee their safety?

LA Times, 11-16-2019

" Santa Clarita shooting. Thursday’s deadly shooting at Saugus High School unfolded over 16 seconds in which a student pulled out a gun in the quad area and opened fire, killing two classmates, wounding three others and fatally shooting himself, authorities said. As students were led off the grounds, one asked aloud a question surely on the minds of many others: “What kind of a world is this?” "

………………………..

...16 seconds...short of having an Old West quick-draw gun-slinger in every class room, I'm not sure what to do...

...but that's not the point nor the student's problem...would you work in a place where your life was being threatened daily and your employer could do or did nothing meaningful to guarantee your safety?...I wouldn't...

...maybe students need to form a Union and negotiate their work place safety...maybe students should take to the streets and not return until adults do something about guns and gun safety...maybe students should just go on strike and refuse to go to school...

...and now there's talk about the shooter having 'ghost guns' assembled out of pieces from the internet, unregistered and untraceable...

What do you think?

Should students refuse to attend school until adults can guarantee their safety?

Should President Trump do the honorable thing and resign?

NBC News, 11-14-2019

" Trump: Impeachment has been 'very hard on my family'

His comments came a day after the first day of public testimony, and just hours before the appearance of former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. "

……………………….

I'm worried about the wellbeing of President Trump's family over the course of impeachment. President Trump repeated several times yesterday that impeachment was 'very hard on my family'. This could be serious.

Should President Trump do the honorable thing on behalf of his family and resign?


...

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,"

...what's so unusual about trump asking foreign governments to investigate his political opponent?

"I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

...and suggesting a benefit to these foreign governments if they do?

...and if asking a foreign government to investigate your political opponent is okay, then I would suggest our Dem leaders start making our Presidential to-do list...

...republicans, corporations, executives, 1%er's, their families, NRA, conservative groups of all stripes need investigating by foreign governments if these foreign governments want to curry favor with us...

...this could get very interesting...

Is the billionaire class scared and trying to buy this election?

Elizabeth Warren, yesterday,

" Ms. Warren, who has sparred from afar with Mr. Bloomberg over her proposals to tax the extremely rich, issued a blistering fund-raising message calling his potential candidacy “another example of the wealthy wanting our government and economy to only work for themselves.” Campaigning in North Carolina on Thursday evening, Ms. Warren offered a restrained comment on Mr. Bloomberg and cast her candidacy as a “grass roots movement.”


“It’s not enough just to have somebody come in, anybody, and say they’re going to buy this election,” she said. "

Tulsi Gabbard...wow

Star Advertiser, 10-18-2019

" In a series of tweets today, Gabbard called Clinton the “personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.” Gabbard also alleged there has been a “concerted campaign” to destroy her reputation since she announced her presidential run in January. "

Tulsi Gabbard tweet,

" Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a … "
