    Looks like there's too much confusion and people leaving to get anything like impeachment, 25th, etc. done. They'll probably run out the clock, like at the end of a football game.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Re: The Rant Thread (v1.3)

    Once again. The Lenormand and Tarot Reading Facebook Group have completely made a big deal out of my reading. One of the members was making a big deal out of my reading and telling me that my question is too negative all because I made a Lenormand reading why the society of Planet Earth is horrible. I was just speaking the truth about society on the Planet of how horrible it is. The Admin agrees with the members and they deleted my post. When fine, screw that sensitive group. This is the same bullcrap that happens before all the other Tarot & Lenormand Facebook Group.

    Re: The Rant Thread (v1.3)

    I read something today that indicated an impeachment started now would also mean he forgoes all the benefits he would get as a former president and wouldn't be eligible to run again in 2024. So, there's still some benefit to it, even if it's not compete before the end of his term.
    We are what we are. Nothing more, nothing less. There is good and evil among every kind of people. It's the evil among us who rule now. -Anne Bishop, Daughter of the Blood

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.
    -Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Curse

    Service to your fellows is the root of peace.

    Only if it is passed by the Senate.

    It requires a vote (in the Senate) to accept the impeachment from the House, and then a second vote (also in the Senate) to impose penalties.

    I hope this happens - even if jackass has been out of office for years.

    However, jackass Jr. will have access to jackass sr's carefully hustled hord of ill gotten gains. Jackass Jr. has already been positioned to take up the jackass mantle.

    I wish there was some easy way out, like, um, I dunno... Maybe Republicans standing up for Democracy, or something...

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Don't place bets on jackass jr. having access to too much for long. A lot of prosecutors have been waiting for years now to have friendly discussions with citizen Trump instead of President Trump.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Under normal conditions I would agree with you in a minute, but I'm not sure of anything right now, although my atheistic faith in the ultimate triumph of reason is still
    holding, so...
    ...yeah...




    This is all so 2020.

    Well, it took nearly a year, but the 'rona finally got through my mask (most assuredly from my "essential" manufacturing job). Good news is I only have symptoms of allergies/sinus, not even a fever. Likely back to work in the Super spreader in a week...

    Will go re-test later today, then likely back to work tomorrow.
