Republican Numbers Diminish, But Their Power Stays Intact

To Do Today:‬‪✅ Divide__ Conquer‬ US News Reports that since the 1/6/2021 attack on the Capitol only 25% of Americans identify themselves as members of the GOP.

Ah, Spring- Daffodils, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, and Rudy Giuliani Going Through Some Things

Can We Do Impartial Justice and Convict Him—This Time?

Representative Adam Schiff's closing argument at the end of Trump's first impeachment trial was awe-inspiring. Unfortunately wasn't enough to break the partisan gridlock that has crippled our government for a decade. Donald Trump should have been removed from office a year ago. So many lives have been lost because of the cowards in the Senate … Continue reading Can We Do Impartial Justice and Convict Him—This Time?
