Impeached -- so what?

For only the third time in history, a U.S. president has been impeached -- an inglorious circumstance that President Trump brought on himself.

Trump enraged

Is he the victim of a "witch hunt"? Is this in fact "an inglorious circumstance that President Trump brought on himself"?

What do you think about it -- and why?

Bonus question: What does this historical event to do with Arlington?

Our Country in Disruption

Our country is certainly polarized at the present time. This will continue with the reign of Trump. We cannot let this continue. Impeachment is paramount in our minds. However, as time goes by it is imperative that a vote by the multitudes in the correct direction is what is needed to protect our country, band us together and enable us to move in a direction that is best for all our peoples now and for the years ahead. It is our future that we need to protect.

Polarization, propaganda, bubbles

Impeachment taught me that Democrats try to put the interests of the country over that of party. They were willing to risk the political consequences of impeachment (losing center voters in 2020) based on their commitment to constitutional fidelity.




Republicans did their best to leverage the impeachment to fulfill their agenda to continue the politics of distraction and to promote fallacious interpretations of events. Political opportunism trumped a grounded account of events.



False equivalence reigned. Lots of spin and windbaggery on both sides. I'm curious to see if Truth Will Out, if not optimistic.



The country's polarization problem persists, aided by super-villains such as Mark Zuckerberg. It's scary out there. Consuming the news is a process of titrating despair.



Hey, I rhymed.
