OK! Gotta ask: Does anyone know anyone who sits and talks crossed armed like Trump?

I can't say I've ever seen it before. Is it instead of crossing his fingers as he lies about his opinions about the issues?

About impeachment: New Yorker article about guy who would lead it.

Many have asked "what's next?" concerning Mueller's investigation. If he indicts or just suggests improprieties. This article lays out the Democrats' leading judicial Representative's ideas on how impeachment may play out.....or not.

Time for some new ideas for stopping school shootings. What's yours?

Here's mine. And not exclusive of all the other ideas floating around.

Metal detectors at every school paid for with a Federal excise tax on gun sales. Federal law prohibiting guns in any school.

I'll check my numbers, but I believe we have more dead students from school shootings than in airports and on planes since 9/11/01 yet billions are spent making sure every passenger removes his shoes before entering a boarding area of every single airport in the USA.

How can it be that guns are getting into schools yet every federal museum and building requires passing thru a detector? And most courthouses, police stations and probably every town hall/city hall and even libraries.

OK Democratic Underground: There are two ideas of what we as democrats are to support,

And we haven't even heard from Sen. Sanders yet.

Which is the party line? Schumer's or Pelosi's. I'm afraid to take a stand with my friends until I hear from the DU powers that be.

Are we to support the deal without a promise from Ryan for a vote on the Dreamers or do we go ahead and fund everything for two years without anything in return?

Just asking....maybe Hilary could chime in about now and give us some direction.
