I don't think it's working in 2020. Thoughts?

You never disappoint. And you could use a bit of her right now.

I can't remember who said it:

That's a really horrible idea I hate it for every reason I can possibly even think of because regardless in the deepest darkest depths of my soul I am an American.

That's what you get from the original post? Asking for thoughts on the article and its speculation given the madness going on? You do know that the entire world is looking upon your country aghast right?

Just looking for a little inside insight.

Okay, I’ll try. The Trump years have been a vengeful payback for the fact that we had a legitimately elected two term Black President.

Thanks for that seeks

You know, I think it's the incivility is where it begins.

There's no integrity. Two words - Lindsay Graham. No honour at all any more. Just where's my advantage no matter what. Doesn't look like that's working out for him now, thankfully, but who knows. It was funny watching him on the tube the other day almost crying over it.

I was talking with a colleague of mine the other day and we were reminiscing about what we thought of the U.S. while we were growing up here in Canada and how shockingly, it's so far away from that now. We're both 58.

And the racism. I cannot believe what people are writing on twitter and elsewhere. In their own name! Trump has seemingly given license to these fools.

And of course people die. George Floyd was murdered. We all saw it. And he's not the only one by far, by very far.

Romney comments
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congre ... s-n1243154 (I had to look up vituperative. There's a word I've never seen before.)



And finally, we're all afraid you might descend into a civil war in 20 days.

Seriously.

I hope you don't.

How do think you'd fare if I held my knee on your neck for 8 and a half minutes? With two other people holding down the rest of your body so there's no possibility of movement at all.

Is that a good question?
