Dear President Trump, Happy Celtic New Year – it’s a new day dawning, isn’t it? A new day with oodles of new challenges ahead as you try to come up with new shade to throw now that we are into the open hearing era of this impeachment process. I’m sure you’ll be trying out new … Continue reading The impeachment avoidance plan
Dear President Trump, Do you think Speaker Pelosi consciously planned to hold the House vote on the impeachment inquiry today, on Halloween? Personally, I’m thinking it wasn’t an accident or merely a convenient day, whether it was a conscious choice or not. The History Channel website provides some context about the origins of Halloween that … Continue reading A Happy Halloween, indeed
Dear President Trump, Maybe you’ve never had such a nightmare, but you’ve probably heard people talk about it when they’ve dreamed they’re sitting in a class and the teacher says it’s time to take the test and the dreamer had no idea there was a test and wakes up in a panic. It’s a pretty … Continue reading How low will they go?
Dear President Trump, Happy “National Character Counts Week”! Apparently this is the 26th consecutive year that both the President and the US Senate have declared this week as THE WEEK we are all supposed to pay extra special attention to the Six Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. I was previously … Continue reading Character counts ~ some of the time
Dear President Trump, I figured the chances of the Sport Clips people seeing yesterday’s letter to you on my blog were nil so I wrote to them directly. I’m snail-mailing the letter to the Shoreline franchise owner and cc’ing the corporate office in Texas because they don’t have a way to contact them online if … Continue reading What if it were really true that no one would ever be left behind?
Dear President Trump, What does this WP headline conjure for you? “Growing number of Republicans struggle to defend Trump on G-7 choice, Ukraine and Syria” Frustration? Rage? Abject terror? Disdain? Confusion? Hurt? All of the above? Do you even know this is the message the American public is getting now, or have your still-loyal minions … Continue reading Cockroaches scattering in the light
Dear President Trump, So I seriously took one for the team this evening – I made myself watch the Fox & Friends exchange between Brian Kilmeade and House Representative Liz Cheney. The uncharacteristic choice to subject myself to F&F came about because this morning I read a short HP article about her claim that the … Continue reading In a twisted sort of way, Liz Cheney got it right
Dear President Trump, Just now I was reading Michael Gerhardt’s (WP) editorial laying out the absurdity of your claims that the impeachment inquiry is illegitimate. His argument boils down to the simple idea that you are insisting you should be treated as an untouchable King who gets to do whatever he wants for as long … Continue reading Cranes and cranes
Dear President Trump, I decided not to overly freight yesterday’s letter, but I did notice another key parallel between the saga of you and the myth of King Sisyphus. Maybe you did too – it is, after all, rather glaring. Remember the bit from Wikipedia describing King S? “King Sisyphus promoted navigation and commerce but … Continue reading Stepping on Zeus’s last nerve
Dear President Trump, I did my civic duty and read both the whistleblower’s statement and the rough transcript of your call with Zelensky on 7/24/19. When I finished I felt ill. Ill and wrung out. The whistleblower statement shows that someone from the White House ordered the record of the call to be kept in … Continue reading Radioactive tippy top secret stuff
