Speaker Pelosi………speak!

I believe that Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, second in line to assume the Presidency, has an opportunity to stand up to President Trump without getting into the dirt and at the same time possibly shaming Republicans in Congress into actually exercising their duty to protect the Constitution by acting as a COEQUAL branch of government.

2018 was a year that saw the loss of musical giant Aretha Franklin who gave us one of the songs of our generation. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Speaker Pelosi, Donald Trump shows disdain every time he refers to you as “Nancy” in public but it’s far more sinister than just showing disdain for you. He shows disdain for the Constitution which established Congress as a coequal branch of government and every member of the House and Senate. If I were you, I would be taking to the House floor and publicly demanding of President Trump that in all situations, public and private, he refer to you by the title you have earned by the solid ass smacking delivered in the midterm elections. Speaker Pelosi. Speaker of The House of Representatives of the United States of America.

Our Constitution imbues Congress with the ability to exercise oversight on the Executive branch of government. Indeed, every member of Congress takes an oath not to the President, or their party, but to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a bully in the Oval Office. A narcissistic, pathological liar who respects no one. Not other world leaders, who he also dismissively refers to without including their title when he speaks of them, not the members of Congress, not the institutions manned with people dedicated to keeping our country safe, not military leaders who have risked their lives, indeed not even the people who voted for him.

Enough politics for the day. It’s tough to ignore them, and we shouldn’t, but there has to be some balance or we’ll all go over the edge. Spread common sense and logic wherever you can.

  1. While I am glad that there is unity between the Senate Minority Leader and Speaker Pelosi, I think he really should just shut up. He really does not help in delivering the message.

    While it important to focus on the 800,000 government workers that are not being paid, they need to focus equal or more attention on the consequences of government services that are not being delivered. SBA loans, emergency payments to farmers, FEMA payments to all those impacted by the many natural disasters are just a few examples. And now the reports are out that the President is considering redirecting funds budgeted for flood control to build his wall. The President talks about the crisis on the border. Ready the story today at NPR.org about how they are spending (wasting) money in attempting to hire more border agents.

    1. My son had been counting on his agent fee for a house bought with an FHA mortgage loan. Nope. The kicker is that my daughter is the home buyer and she has to be out of her apartment on the day the closing was scheduled, January 21. Logic and common sense are far too rare today. The lies and distortions come so quickly, so smoothly, so seamlessly that you just cannot absorb them. Solutions are not possible without facts.

  2. Well said there, Herb. (Mr Limerick)

    What no one mentions too much is that all the land (97%) of the Texas borderlands are privately owned. Eminent domain does sit well with Texans and court cases just drag on. All this BS to throw a bone to a base that will not even understand.
