Re: Hijack this thread

My washer is broken, so I am sitting in a laundromat where the tv is tuned to faux noise. I have entered an alternate reality. Now twitler has come on and I can’t hit mute. :crying: There’s a sign saying don’t touch the remote. :( Did it mention smartphones? There are some apps that can emulate a r...

I was glad to see they just took the vote and it’s over for now. Who knows how long the republicans would have gone on last night?

Re: White House Impeachment Response Strategy

Question: Does John Roberts have to just take whatever McConnell/White House decide to do? I know the Senate sets the rules, but does Roberts have any say about decorum?

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Abuse of Power; Whistleblower(s)

Not according to Trump it isn't. He broke all records tweeting yesterday (120 odd tweets, averanging 4.4 per hour), mostly retweeting other people. His likes have nosedived as well. 3 months ago he was getting 100K likes per Tweet, now he is lucky to get 25K. Hell, he's retweeting himself. The guy ...

I was out a lot of the day, home about 4. I was a little surprised to see it still on. I tried watching it, but mostly had it off. I tuned in occasionally to see if it was over yet.

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

I heard on the tube that he’s tweeting like crazy this morning. The impeachment has him totally unhinged. Isn’t there anybody who can get that damned phone out of his hands? The thing I think about when he’s this unhinged is how much more dangerous he is. And attacking a child so soon after all the ...

The company that occupies my lovely stage (now named “the Kestrel”) has cast me as the Earl of Kent in their production of King Lear this Spring. It’s their annual Original Pronunciation play, so we will all be studying and practicing what is known about how English sounded ca. 1606. https://www.ba...

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Abuse of Power; Whistleblower(s)

I'm sure when the senate shuts this down he'll just continue violating his oath. Maybe we should have one of these impeachments every year after? That’s interesting. Say he gets re-elected :eek2: If there’s a Democratic Senate, could they impeach him again? He will certainly not stop offending.

I’ve read both sides of the argument of whether to keep the articles broad or narrow and have been able to understand the arguments on both sides. I think this has the advantages of keeping it simple for the public, but there’s so much more that could have been added. Hopefully, there will be a way ...
