"I do however, have a problem with kids being off of school. For them, they could give a rat's behind about MLK. It is just a day to sit inside and play video games. My solution? Take the day off of regular curriculum, and focus totally on what this man stood for."
I am going start out by quoting Clint Eastwood from one of his western movies. This week will be the good, the bad and the ugly. The good is today. Today we are supposed to be remembering an American icon. It is Martin Lutheran King Day. Yes, even though he had some bumps and warts, I am a MLK history fan. Even though the black community has adopted MLK as their hero, he really was an American hero. His famous quote to judge someone "not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" should he etched in every schoolroom in America.
Now the bad. This week, as well as many weeks to follow, will be filled with unnecessary nonsense. The impeachment (removal) trial for our 45th President. It will suck all the oxygen out of the air. Nothing else will matter (sorry Amy, Sleepy Joe, Bernie, et al), but this trial will be the shiny new penny in Washington. Even though we just went through one of these trials with Slick Willie, because this President beat St. Hillary in 2016, he must also endure. Most of us would rather have a root canal than watch this bluster.
Now for the ugly - and I mean real ugly. If you think this President is going take this lying down, think again. He has a "dream team" of defenders who should impress even the most skeptical. Tomorrow when the fireworks start, they are really going to start in earnest. How do I know? Witnesses. Whereas Leader McConnell wants a "quickie", and then acquittal, "Shifty Schiff" and the rest of the Clown Car want a parade of THEIR witnesses only. The President's team on the other hand, will ask Justice Roberts for a dismissal on the first day. Why? The "charges" are unconstitutional. Bogus. So this trial could be over in a day, or take months.
If Roberts does not agree with dismissal, and Roberts agrees to let the Clown Car call witnesses, then the ugly really starts. Trump's team and the Republican Senators want their witnesses also. If that happens, say goodbye to Sleepy Joe. He and his kid will be exposed as the frauds they are. Plus - some legal experts think if witnesses are involved on both sides, the bickering and wrangling amongst the Senators will stretch this trial out to the horizon. By the time the election rolls around, the citizens will be so sick of everyone involved, they might want to fire the whole crowd - and then elect a Prime Minister and a Parliament instead.
Why do I say this is living in the land of right now? Because it is. This is ground zero for history. The territory we are on right now is totally uncharted . We do know that the Democrats have already changed history for future Presidents. In the future, not liking a President for any reason, will rise to the level of "high crimes and misdemeanors". Who knows? Maybe even treason.
So right now, we are at the meeting of the roads. The nexus. It is only Justice Roberts who can pull us off the cliff. How? Immediate dismissal. And after the dismissal, a stern and tough lashing, as well as warning for the Democrats. Don't you dare put this country through this bullshit again!
One final word about the "good". I have no problem with government facilities being shut down today in recognition of this great American. I do however, have a problem with kids being off of school. For them, they could give a rat's behind about MLK. It is just a day to sit inside and play video games. My solution? Schools should take the day off of regular curriculum, and then focus totally on what this man stood for. Hint: It is not the pablum we heard coming out of Obama and Holder. Martin Luther King had it right. Learning about this, is how we should honor this great man on this day.
