    Calling it a ‘free health care’ plan is mistaken and misleading. Americans can and should have the benefits of universal health care, at the cost savings seen in developed nations like Canada, Germany, The United Kingdom, and the Scandinavian countries. If we can have better health care at lower cost, what does it matter to most Americans if we are paying for it through taxes rather than to for-profit health insurance companies?

    Calling it ‘free college’ is likewise mistaken and misleading. Americans can and should invest in the minds of our young people so that we can innovate and solve the problems the nation and the world face.

    The plans advocated by Sanders and Warren have direct, predictable benefits to the broad swath of the American people. They are investments that will pay back handsomely.

    Have you read the Mueller Report? I am in the process of doing so. It’s not expensive. There are even, large-print forms are available. If you want to call yourself a patriot, someone concerned for the future of our country as a democracy, a free country of laws and not an autocracy, get busy and start reading. For most of us, it is the most patriotic thing we can do right now.

    In the report Mueller and his team lay out Trump’s and his subordinates’ willing acceptance of help from a hostile foreign power in gaining the presidency. Trump asked for such help publicly, and got it.

    Mueller and his team lay out multiple instances of Trump and his subordinates obstructing justice.

    It’s more than enough to warrant serious investigation, requiring testimony from Trump and his subordinates.

    I suspect that some of the posters above are trolls trying to undermine Mueller. Others oppose Trump’s policies and immature behavior. Those who oppose Trump and are angry that Mueller didn’t hand you Trump’s head in a basket should realize that weeks ago Mueller already handed the House of Representatives every reason to impeach Donald John Trump.

    The Speaker of the House is trying to walk a very fine line on when to begin. Too soon, and there won’t be enough support in the Senate to convict. (Trump would proclaim victory.) Too late, and public support may suffer. (People might think the Democrats are not pursuing the matter because they don’t want to offend the donor-Oligarch class.)

    An irony: When climate change becomes undeniable the science sceptics will be shouting, “Save us, scientists! Fix it! Fix it!”

    Whether we crossed the land bridge from Asia or sailed on boats, we are all the descendants of explorers. All of our ancestors were people who wanted to know what was over the next hill, or the next mile of ocean, and hoped they would find something good. I hope to see my fellow Americans act, and lead the way again, on the next great explorations.

    As in the case of the family separation policies of the current administration. It has to be malice, because nobody is that incompetent.

    Some of Washington’s supporters wanted to make him king. Washington refused. We had just won a struggle to rule ourselves according to laws, rather than be ruled by people who felt that they were above the law.

    What do you think Washington would think of the current president?
