    Re: Oh Dear

    Indonesia....thats what i mean. Dont threaten countries who have options. In the end it opens a can of worms for other countries as well. One of our prime ministers tried that funding threat ....he didnt have a job soon afterward. And i totally agree about the "gang" youre referring to
    , it amazes me after all the shuffling and sackings and threats and backflips Americans havent had enough of it yet. You guys still havent seen Trumps taxes yet which by your own federal laws he must show the cpuntry ehere his interests are. We are well aware he has interests in Asia.

    We can't just throw Trump out because the majority don't like him. We have constitutional laws to follow and so far Trump hasn't broken them. If so, it would be up to Congress to bring impeachment, & Congress is majority Republican. It is not a federal law that he show his taxes, it is a tradition that he show them. The founders sought checks & balances by the three branches of government and didn't imagine a collusion between branches if and when Trump would break any laws, which, I repeat, he has not yet been legally accused of.

    Re: Oh Dear

    So he cant be replaced by a member of his own party? He has to actually break a law? Does nobody in his party understand how much he is screwing with the world?
    When some of your best minds refuse to take diplomatic positions leaving them vacant this long after his intro to presendancy you guys have a real problem.

    Re: Oh Dear

    His party supports him. His party is worse than he is. IMO, being a Republican is a mental illness. Of course, they feel the same about those who are not them. So, it's a draw. The diplomatic & State Dep't. positions left unfilled are not so because any "best minds" refused them. Where did you get that idea? The positions are not filled as Herr Trump is dismantling them. He doesn't want them filled, and he can't be forced to do so.

    eta--we are not Parliamentary. What you describe "So he cant be replaced by a member of his own party?" is Parliamentary. Trump can only be replaced by his Vice-President, in this instance, based on the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, but Pence must lead the charge backed by the cabinet & that ain't going to happen.

    The Republican party is gone completely Batsh t crazy, and the members of Congress have realized that he will not interfere with them. They have free rein while he babbles and plays golf.
    THEY aren't going to do anything to mess with that. At least not until he refuses to sign a bill they put before him.
    And the Democrats are going to be forced to st and watch and try to interfere where they can.

    If we're lucky, in 2018 the Democrats or some independents can take a couple or three seats away from the GOP.
    This could prove to be the worst congressional session since the days of Coolidge and Hoover.

    Happy New Year to you, Too, Anne.
    I refused to spend the year depressed. I decided to focus on what was really important.
