    I'm not placing any bets that it does any good but I sent that link to all three of my clueless leftist anti-gun, anti-Trump Democrat legislators.

    I suspect the big-shots in the DemonRat party have another secret motive. They have decided that Biden is the only hope to win the general election and they want to tip the primary scales in his favor, so they are dragging out the impeachment fiasco so that the senator/candidates will be prevented from campaigning prior to the Iowa & New Hampshire votes. Wouldn't it be something if the strategy resulted in Warren, Sanders & the other Senators getting passed by Gabbard?

    @Ray B, ^^^^ This^^^^ Biden is their only hope so the fix is already in. The rest of them are just noise. I'll give them one thing. They're helping the employment numbers, mostly clueless college graduates that have no marketable skills.

    Well, I would disagree about Biden being their only hope, Frankly, Tulsi Gabbard is their best candidate, but Hillary has already killed her off as a Russian asset. That leaves Bloomberg, and his 40 Billion reasons that he can win.

    I have to agree with Little Johnny...

    REP. Adam Schiff was visiting a Washington D.C primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

    The teacher asked Mr. Schiff if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'.
    So Mr. Schiff asked the class for an example of a 'Tragedy'
    A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.'
    'Incorrect,' said Schiff. 'That would be an accident.'
    A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.'
    I'm afraid not’, explained Schiff, 'that's what we would refer to as a great loss'.
    The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Schiff searched the room.
    'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'
    Finally, at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand and said: 'If a plane carrying you and Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. Nadler and Mr. Schumer and Mrs. Clinton was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile & blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'
    'Fantastic' exclaimed Schiff, 'and can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'
    'Well', said Johnny, 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident!’

    The New York Times finally got something RIGHT!!!

    Elizabeth Warren is a GREAT STORYTELLER.

    There was the one about being a Cherokee

    Then her employment was terminated because she was pregnant

    Then she invented the story about Bernie

    And the election is several months away- Just think of all the stories that she'll tell before she is added to the list of also-rans.

    QUESTION:

    Is a lie considered a lie if the person telling it firmly believes it to be true?

    When I was stationed in S.Carolina there was a PFC that was from a shack in the Appalachians that would have fit right into a Snuffy Smith comic. To hear him talk he lived in a veritable mansion, had a GTO and a Harley Davidson Sportster. That was just the tip of the iceberg as to what he had. there was a 3 day weekend and a Sgt was going to drive home. the Sgt lived in N. Alabama and would be going near the PFCs home in N Georgia. It was agreed that the PFC could ride along to N. Georgia, then the Sgt would pick the PFC up in two days on his way back to base. All the way to N. Georgia the PFC bragged about all the stuff he had until right up to the front yard, where he got out. Two days later the Sgt drove into the driveway and picked up the PFC. From the appearance of the house, the broken-down vehicles in the yard and other clues indicating the PFCs family was not only dirt-poor but maybe didn't even own the dirt. The PFC got in the car and was hardly out of sight of the house when he started in again on what a mansion he lived in and all the stuff that he had. The PFCs descriptions clearly didn't match the reality, but the Sgt couldn't help but feel sorry for the PFC, the PFC was living in an alternate world where his actual world was so unacceptable that he had to create an alternate world.

    One wonders about the ability to perceive reality of both the PFC from 50+ years ago and the present candidate for president.

    I just received a random text message asking my support for Bernie Sanders.

    Decorum prohibits me from telling you what my response was.

    For those that don't think anything is happening or that don't think people will be held to account. Trumps words today. "This was a take-down attempt at a setting President of the United States, and we caught them" The next ten+ months will be epic. We live in exciting times!

    On a side note.....

    Trump, just added Tanzania to the expanded list of countries included in the travel ban visa restrictions.

    Will we see retaliation?

    Is this for Tanzania's discrimination against American's on the cost of a VISA?

    America gives Tanzania tens if not hundreds of millions annually. How does Tanzania thank America? By charging twice the cost on a VISA for American's that they charge any other country.

    (y) Thanks for the information. I was reading your post completely wrong. My bad.

    It is hard to believe that Tanzania makes the same list as the other countries that are listed. Makes you wonder what the US government knows that they aren't sharing.

    There's a few faces missing here. I'll give you a hint: one of them is orange.
