Well, I’m off to tackle a writing assignment.
Truman was president when I was born.
A lot of people believe the current maniac too. Not too many outside the United States, however. They are smart enough to see him for what he is.
“This is my last territorial demand.”
“We have peace for our times.”
I let my wife make all of those decisions.
Back in WW II, one of the B-17 raids that my father participated in was repelled by the Swiss Air Force. As they were re-forming after the bombing run, the squadron got too close to the Swiss border. The Swiss sent up a single plane with checkerboard markings on the wings. It fired a few shots “across the bow” and the Americans turned back.
People don’t care what crimes Trump commits. As long as they are doing well, they’ll vote him back in.
I’m white, I’m male, I am heterosexual, I’m Christian. I am everything Trump wants America to be. He protects me from Mexicans, Muslims, LGBT and me-too women. Unfortunately for Trump, I am not afraid of Mexicans, Muslims, LGBT and me-too women so I don’t need his protection.
In fact, my version of Christianity is that Mexicans, Muslims, LGBT and me-too women are my neighbors. I’ve never been able to subscribe to the sentiment, “I love my neighbors; it’s those other people I can’t stand.”
Impeachment may happen. There is enough votes for it in the House and, more importantly, enough public sentiment for it among the people.
Conviction is unlikely. The Republicans in the Senate don’t care what the people want or even what is in the Constitution. Loyalty to Trump supersedes all else.
Trump will emerge victorious and more empowered than ever. Not only will he be able to get away with criminal activity with the consent of the Senate, he will be unstoppable. In that case, FOUR MORE YEARS and the establishment of the Trump dynasty.
I’m asleep for at least an hour by 11 PM. I do remember my wife and I (and a bunch of other 20-something year olds) closing the officer’s club at 2 AM on the weekends.
I happen to be in a job search at the moment. Also in the past, I’ve been a hiring manager. It is amazing the difference in the speed of time on both sides.
On the seeker side, time crawls with the speed of a glacier. On the hiring side, I often wondered if I could get it all done in two months.
