Meanwhile Congress, the so many domestic and foreign news services, and so many professional civil servants have an obligation to let us know how routine corruption is now at the highest level of government. Making the current president more corrupt than Nixon.

Mueller report makes one thing obvious. All those crimes that The Don wanted done (in Volume Two) did not happen only for one reason. His people repeatedly refused to implement them.

Ask a result, The Don must continuously fire people. When an American Ambassador to Ukraine bluntly noted and obstructed what became illegal activities, then she was fired. Since then, America has never had another ambassador to Ukraine.

I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.
As a result, the U.S Special Envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, was removed.

Trump cannot find someone dishonest enough to execute illegal Quid Pro Quo. Which explains why his personal attorney (Rudy Giuliani), illegally acting as an agent of the State Department (the State Department said so), must do what Trump wants.

Extremists in the Cellar say that is good. And post personal insults to prove it. Insults are what a corrupt mafioso Don does to prove only he is right and everyone else is wrong.

So many responsible people are doing their job. And not using personal cheapshots to justify facts - as even some Cellar extremists do in every post. And that is called acceptable behavior. Must be. Trump does it every day.

Nixon used a similar expression. "Four More Years!" We know what that really meant.

It meant the Vice President could take over as President and give his former boss a presidential pardon so they'd all live happily ever after. People love a story with a happy ending.

But first they had to get rid a VP who was also corrupt and that nobody wanted for president. Coincidence or intentional?

Divine intervention.

They should've started an investigation into collusion.

It is said Congressional Republicans' favorite form of exercise is running for the hills. It may also now be said Congressional Democrats' favorite form of exercise is mental masturbation.

I should write to the Ventura County Star expressing these sentiments, the better to eyepoke the prejudiced antiTrumpkins who write in.

I propose a culture war upon Disco. It was music for zombies the first time, if even you wanted to call such mediocrity music. No call for a resurrection now.

Disco didn't make me go punk... but decades later, it had something to do with me going bagpipe.

Chic is on worldwide tour. What with the coronavirus, everybody took their eyes off Iran. Right now the meter is leaning towards disco. In two months, it'll change again, so watch this thread.

I believe the term 'dead as disco' should be enforced. Strictly.

Dude, you should have listened to yourself. Are or were you really going to accept the dictum of Washington's Least Convincing Blonde about who's deplorable and who has ethics? Particularly in view of her personally casting aside ethics and embracing criminality for lucre? She's in it only for the money and the power that comes with it.

People more ethical than yourself -- less left-wing too -- oppose you, argue against you. Is that the handbasket you want to get in?

Even when it was popular, it didn't have much of life in it.

No wonder I eventually took up the bagpipe. Hey, I said it last September.

(I don't think "That Old Time Rock & Roll" actually fits in the bagpipe's nine-note range, though.)

(The Flintstones theme does; so does The Lumberjack Song.)

Hey UG, your reflexive use of ad hominem attacks is deplorable.

I have know you to be able to communicate without such language. I have also know you to make sensible, interesting and informative posts. But the hatin' poisons every post it touches. As a Democrat, as a patriot, as a citizen and a voter striving to be better informed, I find information from you and others whose opinions and knowledge is different from mine valuable. If you share what you have to offer, I will share my open mind. But I won't drink poison just because I thirst.
