I have re-read the Bill of Rights and cannot find any of first amendments which states the president can do anything he wants, yet our erstwhile, but ignorant, leader had referred an amendment which grants him such authority. Those of you well versed in the Constitution are respectfully asked point me where this is written. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and understanding me.

The pernicious belief in racial superiority begins with dinner table lessons doled to 3 and 4 year olds. Logical thinking individuals do not either seek or support legislation limiting the voting rights of any group without garnering the label of a racist. Racism is not limited to discrimination against Blacks, but include Hispanics, Muslims and nearly everyone lacking similar background to those seeking such legislation. It begins insidiously with the belief one is a member of a racially superior group fully capable of creating an environment conducive to peaceful and advantageous lifestyles predicated on the mores instilled in the racially superior, but undereducated, group seeking legislatively supported racism.

The group of whom I speak has successfully ruled for decades and the current movement to legislatively ensure control emanates from a growing movement toward a more equal distribution of power and wealth. Part of the insidious portion of their beliefs lies in the erroneous belief they are not racists, rather law abiding Americans seeking maintenance of the status quo, the status quo, of course, being the proper manner to treat individuals under the long established paradigm. They fail to see or understand their beliefs are the very essence of racism. They fail to see or understand this because this is the belief system they have been taught to live by and cannot muster the intestinal fortitude to even consider an alternative. Instead, this thoughtless group chooses to deflect their uncivil beliefs to those who attempt to educate them. It is far from coincidence these folks support a President who lacks the mental capacity to make the considerations necessary to provide effective leadership.

Virtually on a daily basis, the person 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 lessons 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 .

"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 reasons. 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 reason. 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.
True today

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.
