Trains, planes and automobiles.

That article was written by "Charlie Richards is the creator of the children's series Life at the Pond. He's also written several prime time sitcoms and hundreds of radio ads."

That makes him uniquely qualified to misunderstand the difference between capital costs, operating costs, opportunity costs and costs that are externalized.

Do you think all his shenanigans could really lead to him getting impeached?

Like on a scale from 1-10, what's the likelihood Trump actually gets impeached?

Or is the hope just that he doesn't get re-elected?

Impeached then imprisoned would be such a glorious shit show... at least he'd accomplish something no other President has lolz

So, what's the condensed version of the collusion/treason Trump is committing with Putin? What dirt does Mueller have on him?

“You can sense the impending explosion. Hear the kindling crackling and feel the intensity of the heat rise as the embers glow ever brighter. You know this is no ordinary fire. That the smart thing to do is take cover. Yet you remain anchored in place by past experience. “You’ve never been burned before so why panic now,” you say to yourself. Besides, you are prepared for an emergency. The fire extinguisher is nearby and other traditional safeguards are in place to prevent catastrophe. So you ignore your spidey senses and do nothing. You stay in place and wait, prepared to react to whatever may come next. Oblivious to the fact you may never get that chance.

We’ve had 44 other presidents in this country. Some who previously served in the role were not good men. Many were corrupt and power hungry. Some had authoritarian tendencies and used the bully pulpit to foster divisions amongst the American citizenry. Others personally profited from the office, and a few are best described as a criminal. No matter who served in office, however, Americans were able to take comfort in the fact that our checks and balances were designed to prevent catastrophe. That our democratic institutions and individual freedoms may get temporarily burned but the house and those residing inside it would remain thanks to the safeguards in place.

Past experience does not apply to Donald Trump. The safeguards currently in place are ill equipped to adequately protect against such an unconventional threat. They were built on the premise of trust, extending the benefit of doubt to our freely elected officials that they will act logically and represent the interest of the majority of the electorate or be voted out and neutralized. Designed with a reliance of informed consent. That facts exist and that a free and independent press will enjoy the freedom to uncover them. Aware of the power of a single authoritarian our founders took great care to establish 3 separate but equal branches of governance. That way if one branch sought to abuse its power the members of the other branches had the tools to bring action to protect the greater whole. However, much like a fire extinguisher, these tools were not meant to be passive. There success is dependent on somebody being there to operate them.

We know Donald Trump is petrified of the Mueller investigation and where it could lead. Guilty people generally still know what they’ve done. We know Vladimir Putin, a former KGB agent who has never before acted with America’s best interest in mind, went to great lengths and invested precious Russian resources specifically to elect the man who promised to “make America great again!” We know that Mueller, Rosenstein, Sessions, Comey, Berman and Wray all life long Republicans, are going to unprecedented lengths to raise the red flags to the American public that there is some serious cause for concern. We know of the public refusal to denounce Putin by name or hold Russia to account for its attempts at interference in our election. We know of the public threats and private attempts to fire Mueller and end the investigation. We know the man who mocked his predecessor for doing so, telegraphed forthcoming military operations to our enemy apparently with ample time for them to prepare! Yet, despite all evidence that an unprecedented threat looms, the vast majority of our elected officials continue to play traditional politics. Act content to rely on reactionary safeguards.

Let me be clear. I don’t give two shits about party politics. This has never been about red verse blue. This is about patriotism. This is about the evolution of the American dream. Every single patriot who serves in our Congress should refuse to consider any other order of business until legislation is brought to the House and Senate floor that will unequivocally protect Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation from a premature end. The public needs to know on which side our elected officials stand.

We can no longer stand by passively. Our representatives need to get off their asses and do their intended job. Grab the extinguisher before the conflagration consumes them. For once it does it’ll be too late. “

It's true there were better ones
That led their people
To lead their country
Who cared for this world
But who are we to change?
Without the strength of all
The nations will crumble

Feed lies for war
Bring the nations to it's knees
Risking worldly structure and integrity
The balance of our kind controlled by hatred,
Distorted truth and lies
United is the only way to stand

Leaders of the free world lead into the land of the un-free
God sent politics hammered down with a fist too bold
Play the council of pawns in the quest of total control

Free us of this hate
Free us from this hate

Take over the world
Does hate mean freedom?
Divide our home
Does hate mean freedom?
Take over the world
Divide our home
Does hate mean freedom?

Forgiveness... nonsense?

Sounds like that comic writer lacks Bibilical literacy.. aka, hypocrisy.

But keep using The Book you've never read as ammunition to support your agenda...

Jesus would forgive you...

"She was an agent of the Russian government," asserted Browder, who has said Veselnitskaya has been trying to overturn the sanctions law. "She's an agent of Vladimir Putin, and when she went to Trump Tower, she went there on behalf of Vladimir Putin."

In a rare public intervention, he said: "Age-old attempts at covert influence and propaganda have been supercharged in online disinformation, which can be churned out at massive scale and pace at little cost.

"The aim is to sow doubt by flat denials of the truth, to dilute truth by falsehood, divert attention to fake stories, and do all they can to divide alliances. Barefaced lying seems to be the default mode, coupled with ridicule of critics.

“This weekend, the New York Times and the Washington Post published detailed investigations into the financial history Mueller is investigating. While carefully couching the findings within the bounds of the facts they were able to prove based on publicly available data, these reports made it perfectly clear that Trump’s business empire is not only dirty, but dirty in a way that leads directly into the national-security threat that produced Mueller’s investigation in the first place.“
