To paraphrase part of the Trump Inauguration speech:

Regarding Impeachment- America's carnage stops right now!

Russian ballots?

Will ballots for Republican voters be printed in Russian?

(sorry for my snarkiness)

Supreme Court Seat during impeachment?

Just wondering....

While a pResident is under Impeachment, can he fill a vacant Supreme Court Justice seat?

United Republican Party?

Did Trump have a Freudian slip when he mentioned the United Republican Party? URP?

What's the name of Putin's party? United Russia Party. URP?


Who would you like to see as VP?

Stacy Abrams is the first person who comes to my mind.

OR, Susan Rice was on TV recently and she's very impressive.

and now for something completely different.

I wonder where David Holmes bought his suit. Very classic! (as long as the coat didn't have side vents. Hate side vents)

Rochester NY- GOP introduces legislation to limit powers of newly elected Democratic Executive

Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Legislation introduced in the Monroe County Legislature would reduce the power of the county executive.

That legislation was introduced Tuesday as a "matter of urgency" in the Republican-led Legislature - one week after Democrat candidate Adam Bello was elected as the next Monroe County executive.

Trump's Oath of Office

" I swear to faithfully execute all the laws and Constitution of the United States of America....."

Armistice Day

On November 11 Monday, I observe 'Armistice Day'- the original intent of that day is to celebrate peace.

So, I celebrate the striving for peace.

Electoral College

It's time to dispose of the arcane Electoral College.

But if we can't...then it has to be reformed to reflect modern populations shifts. Since it is based on the # of Representatives + 2 US Senators, it also means the # of US Representatives per state is out of balance. Limiting the total # of the House of Representatives to 435 is one of the reasons.

It should be based on a multiple of the smallest state by population (WY).
That would mean, instead of CA having 53 Congressmen, it would have 68
TX not 36, but 50
Florida not 27, but 37
NY not 27, but 34
PA not 18, but 22

it's just another way for Representative Democracy to work- there must be a balance in the representation.
