This piece has nothing to do with Melania Trump. I've learned in the past week that the first lady has threatened to sue the pants off of anyone and everyone who even vaguely suggests that she is now - or has ever been - a lady of ill repute. The way I figure it, is that a lawsuit directed my way would be the equivalent of a million dollars publicity for this blog. Numbers are down. You do what you gotta do, you know? 
We are gathered here today to discuss, of course, the impeachment of the president of the United States. The right-wingers in the seem intent to keep any witnesses from taking the stand next week. So desperate are they to rig the process in Trump's favor, they seem blissfully unaware that the people are going to see this skullduggery for the scam that it obviously is. They seem clueless that the number of people who want this silly bastard in the White House to go away is getting larger with the passing of each day. A little over two weeks from not, which is when this thing is expected to wrap up, the numbers should be even higher. And with the amount of new evidence that seems to be pouring in daily, the Republicans are anxious to get this thing over and done with and sweep it under the rug.

The fact that they would be so reckless and brazen with a national election less than ten months away makes their obstruction all-the-more hard to figure out. Have they actually deceived themselves into thinking that the electorate will have forgotten about this fiasco between now and November? Are they that delusional? The answer to that question is....well, yeah, they are.

It's never going to be the way it was, folks. It's over. It's fucking over. Did you ever - in your wildest, stupidest dreams - ever imagine that your once-great nation would sink as low as it has? It never even dawned on me. We used to mean something to the rest of the world. We mean nothing now. Donald Trump is now the leader of the free world. When I think of what we might have been.... Fuck it, I'm going back to bed.

Sweet dreams.

Obviously swearing to and signing an oath of "impartial justice" means nothing to them. Bastards.

The reason your numbers are down is that you do not have a working forum. People like to express their opinions and reply to others in real time. And people that do not comment still like to read the comments, when the comments here hit 160 in a week I bet your numbers topped out.

James Howard Kunstler writes two columns a week and has about 1000 comments a week. He also has a Patron page that generates about $ 3800.00 a month last time I checked.

If he can do it so can you.

trump is NOT the leader of the "Free World," nor is the USA the world's leading nation. Leave that up to Merkel and Germany. How odd is that huh? We get the fascists and they are the democracy. Who'd a thunk it?!

She married a racist pedophile for money, how could anyone argue yours is a false statement?

As far as Melonier goes, the obvious need not be stated...but it feels good.
