What goes on in the the wine cave...

....stays in the wine cave?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren ask[ed] darkly what the “closed-door” dinner conversation among us “billionaires” was about. Allow me to lift the veil. South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg took questions for about an hour before departing (from what I could see, without so much as a sip of the prized wine). A physician asked what the mayor would do to expand access to primary care for the uninsured. A woman across the table asked what he would do to extract us from seemingly endless military entanglements in Afghanistan and elsewhere. The college dean wanted to hear more about the mayor’s plans for higher education, including to reduce dropout rates. There was a question about the crisis of climate change.

Elijah Cummings, In Memoriam

Howard County, MD has a memorial book for Elijah Cummings in the lobby of the George Howard Building, the county office. If you live in the area, stop by and add your thoughts about this great public servant.

Like what? Vote for impeachment?

A majority of House Democrats — 134 of the 235 — endorse impeachment....

..... out of 435 members of the house. That would make 301 representatives against it.

So that's not going to work... Yet.

Trump's planned deportations are mainly for show. That's all.

These planned deportations.... are mainly for show. There are two main audiences. One is the nativists in Mr. Trump’s political base, who may have noticed that despite his huffing and puffing — and very likely partly because of it — undocumented migrants are entering the country at a rate unseen in more than a decade. .... The other audience is prospective migrants in Central America, whom the administration would like to deter by sending the message, with its deportation show of force, that trekking across the border is likely to be costly and ultimately fruitless.

BiPart... Aspirational, Delusional, or...

China economic relationship already being redefined

After four decades of economic reform, China is morphing from a low-wage exporter into the largest consumer market for a growing number of industries

After four decades of economic reform, China is morphing from a low-wage exporter into the largest consumer market for a growing number of industries Chinese consumers for the first time last year bought more Cadillacs than Americans did, helping drive profits at General Motors.

"We’re at the end of a period of the globalization of production. We’re at the beginning of a period of globalization of consumption in which the center of gravity moves from baby boomers in the west to the relatively young Chinese.”

Only?????

I was involuntarily subject to a Faux News broadcast. Thankfully, no sound, but the chyron read:

POLL: ONLY 30% FAVOR IMPEACHMENT

Only? ONLY???? Boy, that's some spin.
