    I can give you some good advice. Impeachment for the incompetent Donald Trump.

Reminds me of a story in Teddy Roosevelt's autobiography. This would have been late 1800s and Teddy had a ranch in Montana. He was out with his ranch hands clearing trees with hand axes from land they wanted to convert to pasture. Teddy remarks that it was much harder work than he had imagined. The line I remember (probably not exactly) was that Teddy overheard one of the ranch hands telling a buddy how many trees they'd cut down. Then the ranch hand says "The boss even beavered down a couple of small ones." Teddy clearly understood that his small, amateur axe cuts were more like those of a beaver than the strong strokes of an experienced axe-man.

Anyway, I thought it was a good line. And consistent with Franklin's advice to boot.

      tRump Cutting Down Our Government
      Posted on: 2019-01-31 11:37:51   By: Anonymous
       
      Sounds like what is happening to our governmental agencies, especially Justice Dept, but also Intelligence, EPA, Interior, FDA, you name it.
      The Mercers,Kochs libertarian billionaire plan to remove regulation so they can poison, us all and create an autocracy, eliminating Democracy is happening NOW.
      Look at tRump's appointments and what they are doing.
      How'd you like the Romaine lettuce e-coli scandal a few months back? tRump stopped Obama's irrigation water testing, and in a few months, we had a e-coli poisoning . These are the small cuts that add up to how they are dismantling America, all for the billionaires.
