I wrote this in early March but I think it is still relevant.
Throughout the campaign the issue of whether Donald Trump was fit to be President was continually discussed and debated. The most common term used was “temperament,” i.e., the argument was whether or not Mr. Trump had the proper temperament to be President. This is separate from the issue of what his policies would be and…Continue

From the beginning of the investigation by committees in the House and Senate into possible connections between the Trump Campaign and Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s email and the DNC headquarters, there have been calls for a special prosecutor to be named to de-politicize the investigation.

It’s been a sort of miserable day. After an overcast morning the rain started about noon, and it is pouring now. L showed me a place where there is a water problem with water coming down the outside wall onto the screen porch. It is at a place where the gutter does a 90 degree bend and a roof valley empties. Ugh.
Added to that is the fact that the House voted today to pass the abomination that has been substituted for the AHA (Obamacare). No one doubts, except the “Freedom…Continue
Yesterday in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee he admitted it was “a hard choice” and that the idea of impacting the election made him “mildly nauseous.”
