Maybe they should give influenza some trendy new name

And talk about it like itís new and exotic. Then maybe people would get the flu shot, wash their hands more often, etc.

The ultimate Valentine's Day song for those of us who married someone who's way too good for us



My wife is brilliant and beautiful. Iím still amazed she married a schlub like me. So I connect to this song very much.

What do these movies have in common?

Lady and the Tramp
Breakfast at Tiffanyís
A Christmas Story
Sixteen Candles

Just wondering if this annoys anyone else, or if itís just me. Feel free to add other movies, if you know what Iím talking about.

Quiz: which candidate agrees with you on the issues?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/policy-2020/quiz-which-candidate-agrees-with-me/?fbclid=IwAR18t58-cXYWnvrLgIF9ImjMl9nISTZ2_jqdbYew7c_0HNWzGlFLLxXPvO4

I got Elizabeth Warren, with 15, then about three candidates with 12. Quizzes like these are obviously flawed, but I find them interesting.

Messages to Parnas suggest Yovanovitch surveillance happened same week as Giuliani-Pompeo calls

Is there anyone in Trumpís cabinet who isnít somehow culpable in this? The more people pull threads on this, the more unravels. Itís frightening.

Lincoln Chafee, who can't choose just one political party, is running for president as a Libertarian

He was a Republican Senator who ran for governor of Rhode Island as an Independent, then switched to being a Democrat while in office, then joined the Libertarian Party after that. What party will he join next?

Interesting suggestion from John Dean

Sorry if itís already posted. Essentially, he thinks the House should impeach and not send it to the Senate, just add articles as information comes out. Please read this, itís interesting, I think.

Can we talk about that Peleton ad?

It just strikes me as creepy. The woman is super-thin to start with, but her husband (I presume heís her husband) gives her a surprise gift that sends the message ďyou need to lose weight.Ē Then she looks horrified at having to use the bike, but at the end, she comes across as a Stepford wife, so happy that her life was changed because she dropped from 120 pounds to 110 pounds.

Maybe Iím overreacting? If so, Iím far from alone. Their stock has dropped as a result of the ad.

Here's a reason to push for impeachment, regardless of what the Senate does

Posting this, in part, because I didnít know it until now, so it may be newsworthy to others as well.

Regardless of whether a sitting president can be indicted and convicted on such criminal charges, Trump will become liable to them at some point. But could he be pardoned, as Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon 45 years ago?

Article II, section 2 of the constitution gives a president the power to pardon anyone who has been convicted of offenses against the United States, with one exception: ďin Cases of Impeachment.Ē

If Trump is impeached by the House, he can never be pardoned for these crimes. He cannot pardon himself (itís dubious that a president has this self-pardoning power in any event), and he cannot be pardoned by a future president.

Even if a subsequent president wanted to pardon Trump in the interest of, say, domestic tranquility, she could not.

Gerald Ford wrote in his pardon of Nixon that if Nixon were indicted and subject to a criminal trial, ďthe tranquility to which this nation has been restored by the events of recent weeks could be irreparably lostĒ.

Had the House impeached Nixon, Fordís hands would have been tied.

Trump is not going to be so lucky. The House will probably impeach him before Christmas and then his chance of getting a pardon for his many crimes will be gone.
