An Impeached President

My thoughts exactly.

This, That, and The Other

624C6C04-5D7C-40CE-963A-2F770EB554CCThe Republican majority in the U.S. Senate represents a minority of American Citizens. These Republican senators represent less than 44% of the American population. And yet, these Republican senators can block the conviction of an impeached president.

An impeached president who has committed crimes much more serious than those of Richard Nixon during Watergate, which led to Nixon’s resignation in 1974.

An impeached president who was impeached for acts a lot worse than lying about a blow job, which led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998.

An impeached president who lost the popular vote in 2016 by almost 3 million votes.

An impeached president who suffered the largest midterm election defeat in U.S. history in 2018.

And an impeached president who abused the power of the presidency and obstructed Congress’ investigation into that abuse.

This is the American democracy in 2020. What a shame.

If there isn't enough light, all you see is a fuzzy lump. We recently got Gibbs groomed and he looks very … Continue reading GREAT LIGHT FOR AN ALL BLACK DOG – Marilyn Armstrong

OUT MY BACK DOOR – Marilyn Armstrong

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Out My Backdoor I look out my backdoor a lot. It's a small deck leading to a rather small lawned area that when we were younger and more socially active, was the scene of many summertime barbecues, the building of a tepee, and just handing out. The tepee is gone. The idea … Continue reading OUT MY BACK DOOR – Marilyn Armstrong

USING A GPS IN NEW ENGLAND – Marilyn Armstrong

When the GPS's first came out and the prices dropped from ridiculously high to more-or-less normal, I was an immediate consumer. I was working in Groton, Connecticut which was more than 140 miles from my home. Even though I didn't have to go in every day, three days a week of driving 280 miles round … Continue reading USING A GPS IN NEW ENGLAND – Marilyn Armstrong
