Virtually on a daily basis, the per identified as "Leaf" throws bait to the conservative coy fish swimming and trapped in a small pool. Likewise on a daily basis, the coy fish take the bait and respond with ad hominem attacks worthy if their icthyological status. Then the right wing trapped swimmers take the hatred they so desperately rely upon for sustenance and attach it to all who possess the unmitigated gall to believe something they neither understand nor believe. In addition to the comedy this scenario creates, it also creates a sadness and an incredulity predicated on the fact these miscreants have a say in our government via the voting booth.

Furthermore, the principle of cogent thought and discussion is as foreign to them as the languages of other nations, and in some cases our own nation. Nonetheless, this activity continues. Leaf continues to throw out the bait and the unwashed continue to take it. When will they finally catch on?

Before I post the blog associated with the title, I feel an explanation for some recent events is in order. I gad asked hiramhankwilliams on several occasions to refrain from posting on my blog. He persisted. I asked him one final time and, to my great surprise, he agreed, adding I could post on his blog ant time I wanted. He kept his word until one time I wanted to read his blog and discovered I had been blocked. I then blocked him. BigBlock has yet to respond cogently to any blog I've posted and he too was asked to refrain from posting on my blog. He continued and I blocked him. The whining from both of these posters is more than laughable, it's a sad report of people who simply don't get it. I wish them good luck in their fantasy world.

Not unlike his feckless followers, President Trump has had many opportunities to make things right with the world. He has failed. The prosecutorial pit bulls are now nipping at his heels and once they get hold of him letting go will not be an option. As for the senators who are predicted to free him from the embarrassment of impeachment, they are now working in their last terms as representatives for re-electing someone who supports criminality has never been indigenous to our nation. Despite the less consistently put before the President, he has not learned any of them.

If, by some act of God, the President finally does recognize his shortcomings, it may be too late for him. Too much water has passed under the bridge and confidence in him continues to be on the wane. Will Barak Obama become the best president we've ever had? No. Will Donald Trump become the worst? Yes.

When will the die hard supporters of failing President Trump finally learn enough about the English language to understand they have completely misinterpreted the Mueller Report, thus prompting them to continue to rail against it. Their continued consternation over the criminality of their fearless leader has them in such a quandary that leaving the report to speak for itself is simply not possible.

"The report describes actions and events that the Special Counsel's Office found to be supported by the evidence collected in our investigation. In some instances, the report points out the absence of evidence or conflicts in the evidence of a particular fact or event. In other instances, the report states that the investigation established that certain actions or events occurred. A statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts." (Page two, paragraph three of the report )

The most glaring of this misunderstanding comes from the POTUS himself. President Putin said the Russians did not interfere with the United States' election so it must be true. Prior to the Mueller Report United States intelligent agencies affirmed there was Russian interference in the 2016 election, and this belief was substantiated by the Mueller Report. The United States Chief Ignoramus made it clear where his allegiance lies. Instead of taking actions to prevent further interference, virtually nothing has been done by the GOP in this regard. Far more interest lies in building a needless wall and incarcerating innocent ren.

"Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." Mueller Report, Volume 2, page 2. Furthermore, in Mr. Mueller's minute press conference statement he stated if the President did not commit any crimes he would have stated such in the report. He didn't.

What I fail to understand is how anyone could interpret those statements as being complete and full exoneration of the President. Yet, there are those who do make that assumption. We're not talking about some nebulous words which are subject to interpretation, we're talking about flat out statements that our President is a criminal. Yet we hear continuously about an innocent President who has been victimized by a partisan attorney (a registered Republican) strictly for political reas. However, the 30% heard President Trump say it so it must be true.

At some point the United States of America will become more important to the 30% than an ignorant wanna be struggling to remain in the White House. And the 30% continue to wonder why the 70% believe they are controlled by ignorance.

I see the Pro-Birthers are it again, this time with glee and confidence. Fully convinced the Bork-like Supreme Court will overturn the 40+ ruling, these right wing , mostly , pundits lie awake nightly pondering an abortion free nation. Meanwhile, millions of already born folks can't afford health care because these same right wingers lost their concern when they were castrated to comply with the anti-abortion program.

This new attack on female rights has , sure, with new plans for the 70+ of poverty and welfare some of these non-aborted fetuses will face once they are welcomed into this world by the Pro-Birthers. The fact many of them will never enjoy the security of health care since the right wingers really don't have a plan and are, afraid, incapable of devising one. Nevermind this, however, let's just kill obstetricians who perform abortions because the laws of this land do not apply to those right wingers who choose not to obey them.

The Roe v. Wade decision is predicated on a right to privacy ensconced in the penumbras of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Here again, the right wingers feel no to honor privacy because their agenda far outweighs a female's agenda. God told them . This even after same God told Abraham to sacrifice his Isaac and then later let His own die despite pleas to the contrary. It looks a little like convenience rather than some religious principle.

The NRA is crumbling, President Trump stands shakily on the precipice of impeachment, tariffs are moving us closer to a recession, 29 criminal investigations into the business and tax activities of President Trump, our nation remains in precarious operation due to inferior department head appointments and we are lied to on an average of 12 to 15 times a day doesn't seem to constitute a factor over which the right wingers might have questions about their fearless leader. Now we are perched on the prospect of war again and the Secretary of State sees fit to meet with Vladimir Putin rather than those who may be of assistance should war .

And the misled right wingers wonder why we see them as incompetent............
Those damned Democrats

Those damned Democrats are at it again. They're falsely accusing President Trump of being less than honest. First, they caused him to lose $1.7 dollars in his business ventures despite the fact he wrote the book on how to create and maintain a successful business. Of all the nerve. Even I, as a registered Democrat, can't understand why we're doing this, after all his main goal is to unify the United States in large part by using his expert business acumen.

This, after convincing the President of Mexico to refuse to for a needless wall between our two nations. It just seems to be one thing after another. Why can't my beloved Democratic Party leave this poor man alone and let him work his wonders. We keep forgetting there are about 30% of Americans strongly behind this great American, despite their lack of education and inability to successfully rea. It's about time we began to listen to these minority cretins and work together to make America great again.

If these scenarios aren't enough, look what my beloved Democrats have done to the political appointments made by our erstwhile leader. President Trump has gone through more cabinet members than some previous presidents combined because the Democrats have been interfering in the process. Never mind the ones who have been misusing government funds or indulging in various and sundry sexual escapades, it's the Democrats who have been ruining presidential cabinet appointments.

It's about time these obstructive Democrats got out of the way and allowed President Trump to proceed on his agenda, what ever may be.

Galvin: Well...You know, so much of the time we're just lost. We say, "Please, God, tell us what is right. Tell us what is true."

I mean there is no justice. The rich win; the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time we become dead, a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims -- and we become victims. We become weak; we doubt ourselves; we doubt our beliefs; we doubt our institutions; and we doubt the law.

But today you are the law. You are the law, not some , not the lawyers, not a marble statue, or the trappings of the court. See, those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are, in fact, a prayer, I mean a fervent and a frightened prayer.

In my religion, they say, "Act as if you had faith; faith will be given to you."

If we are to have faith in justice we need only to believe in ourselves and act with justice. See, I believe there is justice in our hearts.

Summation by Frank Galvin in "The Verdict"

This has long been a favorite movie of mine. As an attorney I have watched it through an attorney's eyes. I watched it tonight, but this time through the eyes of a citizen of the United States. It serves as an observation of today's United States and comments on her leadership. The lies, the nearly complete misunderstanding of the workings of government, the nearly complete ignorance of the Constitution, its meaning and its guidance, and the obvious inability to form a viable government. We lose faith in the institutions we have grown to rely upon, we lose faith in the purpose of viable government, we lose faith in those we've chosen to lead and guide us through life in the United States. We misunderstand why and how 30% of Americans can support this kind of malfeasance and misfeasance, but we bypass the discussion by saying they simply miss the point or misunderstand all together. They listen to the words they want to hear and pretend they are true, then bestow their full loyalty to failure to the detriment of the remainder of the nation.
Some thoughts, some answers and some suggestions

President Trump and his administration have been exonerated from conspiracy (there's no such law concerning "collusion"), however, antithetical to his words and the beliefs of the 30% he has not been exonerated from obstruction of justice. Attorney General Barr stated specifically President Trump was NOT exonerated from obstruction of justice crimes. As usual, however, President Trump and his faithful followers do not allow facts to alter their position. So, while champagne stock rises dramatically due to celebration , the celebration is more necessary than warranted.

Evidence of this necessity lies with the unabated braggadocio emanating from he right wing. They see victory where there is defeat and they create victory out of whole cloth. When AG Comey announced Hillary Clinton would not be indicted but her actions were reckless and unsafe there were screams from the right of a fixed investigation. However, when President Trump is not exonerated from obstruction of justice the champagne flows freely. This is a perfect example of the infamous double standard.

Once again I state I am unaware of the information in the hands of the SDNY and therefore cannot comment on its efficacy. I do know the investigation is not over and there are still issues to be discovered and decided. The financial issues discovered by the Mueller investigation could not be pursued by that body since the duties if the special prosecutor were specifically set forth and included only those pertaining to Russian interference in the 20 election. Any other issue does not fall under the special prosecutor's auspices and have been sent on to other investigative agencies. Therefore, claims of "it's now over" are premature and unwarranted. But, once again, the right is not allowing facts to ruin an otherwise wonderful party.

Contrary to right wing rhetoric, the Democrats do accept the special prosecutor's report. That doesn't mean they like it, but those are two different issues. What I believe is now is a perfect time to reunify this nation. We've overcome a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, we've seen what we've all expected that President Trump has very dirty hands. We have an election on the horizon which could, if we wanted, serve as a springboard toward unity. It will take serious statesmanship, clear intelligence and a great deal of desire. I', hoping we can find what we need to make America great again, so far the effort has been a failure.

Another rea why Socialism don't work is grammatically incorrect. Why Socialism DOESN'T work is proper. It was interesting to note the site's grammar police failed to make the correction giving credence to the fact he's more interested in embarrassing the left than educating the right. Nonetheless, the right wingers prattle on about hate and in doing so express their hate for Barak Obama. Then they wonder why some of us on the left of center struggle to give them even an iota of credibility. In reality they speak from the heart and disregard any available brain power. I will, sure, be castigated for this statement, but every time the right posts on this blog they demonstrate and prove my point. I keep hope alive, but reality tells me they need more than hope.

There's a blog telling the story today's Democratic Party would be unrecognizable to my forefathers. First, both my parents were Republicans serving faithfully both as workers and elected officials. This merely to inform you I am familiar with the GOP of old and had some respect for it even through the Bush '43 years. What is referred to as the Republican Party no longer exists. The 30% have run roughshod over the old GOP and created the Party of Trump for no readily apparent rea. This is not an unusual phenomenon. The right wingers here constantly demean and degrade the left and while their thoughtless insults reate through the halls of SFF, they, themselves, suffer the very afflictions for which they try to demean the left. I see this as just more evidence of the lack of the ability to critically think. They think it's an intelligent position, however, and post their ignorance for all to see. These are the very same people who follow President Trump down the slippery slope destroying the United States. Apparently they haven't noticed even some of the right wing former Republicans are abandoning the Trump ship which is mired in the doldrums of mediocrity, at its best.

The myopic views of the right wing lack the requisite capability to consider the future and the long term effects of their misguided and Trump enhancing policies. The Democrats are blamed for practically everything despite the fact there was a all-GOP government for the first two years of this administration. Now that the Democrats have taken control of the House, Nancy Pelosi is eating President Trump's lunch and he's baffled as to how to overcome that situation. This leaves the right wingers no choice but to bad mouth the Democrats in a losing effort to enhance their own agenda. It ain't workin'.
Some thoughts on right wing confusion

Very few people know what Robert Mueller knows regarding the current ongoing investigation into the criminality of President Trump. Regardless of this nearly total lack of knowledge, the right wing never ceases to tell us exactly what we're thinking or what will happen in the investigation. They tell us this speculation as if it were cast in stone. It isn't.

The 30% have thrived on this hopeful speculation since the minority of Americans elected Donald Trump as our President. This erroneous interpretation of the events ongoing extend to misinterpretation of Democratic policies deliberately designed to make them sound untenable and unworkable, statements on Democratic thinking, an act incapable for most of the right wing to either understand or explain, peral attacks on Democratic Congress members in a spurious attempt at somehow improving the Republican agenda, non-existent fairy tale we continually hear about but never see, by demeaning the Democratic agenda. None of this is based in fact, rather it's based on the results of right wing inability to critically think. The right wing has, somehow, been brought to believe President Trump is the panacea for all 's wrong with America. Mind you this belief is predicated on nothing more than the fallacious words of President Trump who has proven time and time again his inability to lead, think, read or run a government. Nonetheless, believe it they do to the detriment of all else.

It will take for the United States to recover from the disaster known as the Trump Administration. The maladies incurred by this failing attempt at governing will, of course, be the fault of the Democrats. The cowardice of the right wing prevents them from being accountable for their actions and forces them to seek other avenues or paradigms upon which to place the blame. A prime example of this is the fact we are over two into this administration and we have yet to have a fully functional government, despite a Republican House, Republican Senate and Republican White House for the first two of the administration. Incompetence at its best.

So continue cutting, pasting and writing blogs praising the ignorance and incompetence of the current administration if, for no other rea, than to demonstrate ignorance and inability to learn exhibited b the right wing daily.
