    Besides the fact that Mueller is a republikunt, is this acceptable behaviour by a president?
    Starting from your premise, who has ever accused Trump of being presidential?

    We all know that Trump has been having a go at him for over a year.

    But getting Sessions to fire him? ....

    Just before his 50th? ....

    Denying him a full pension!

    Petty, petty, PETTY,
    What a disgrace Trump is to his country.

    Well your holy constitution allows all Americans to arm themselves against tyranny, which no doubt sucks to be you cause it means the alt right does not have exclusive rights on patriotism or the moral authority to claim to know what is good for every other American.

    The Parkland school shooter was an avid Trump supporter.

    Here's a picture the shooter took wearing a MAGA hat:

    So I guess we can blame the deaths of those teenagers on conservative culture, which didn't teach him to value human life.

    I apologize. I should have taken you seriously.

    And so was James Comey, who initially headed the FBI investigation against Trump before Trump fired him....for investigating Trump's collusion.

    So much Dem corruption, eh?

    I wrote Cat's Eyes and An Empty Paper Cup, so am a little embarrassed (but appreciative) to take first and second place.

    I was honestly impressed with the standard of entries across the board and there would have been no complaints by me had I been outvoted. (Rusty won't believe that).

    For anyone interested, my two entries were actually connected, in as much as they shared the same message about finding the things in life that made 'you' happy. For the cat it was fish and sleeping, and for the laughing man on the bus, the empty paper cup that he held loving on his lap (like a mother might a child, or a gambler a winning lottery ticket).

    Thanks to everyone who voted, submitted, and to Ponderable for running things.

    It was only a few decades ago that the press hid such things, adding to their checkered past of covering for politicians.
    Like the S&L Crisis; the collapse of Lehman Brothers; Iran-Contra; the release of the Iranian hostages minutes after Reagan's Inaugural; WMD's;...etc....etc...etc...

    Conservatives have benefited from complicit media...historically, just as much as liberals...if not more.

    Please try another. It's kind of fun thwarting a squirming conservative.

    It's a power play by Republicans who are desperate to amplify the gains they've made during the past ten-fifteen years in getting Republicans installed as governors and state legislators due to questionable policies creating new district maps and disenfranchising minorities from voting in the name of "voter fraud" (which has been proven to be a solution in search of a problem).

    If Republicans get away with forcing a Constitutional Convention in order to re-write the Constitution as a corporation-loving, citizen-hating document, there will be blood in the streets, whodey, and you'll have to take some of the blame for this after unceasingly promoting this disgusting abolition of human rights in the US.

    Suzy, as I have pointed out the vast majority of those in Kansas support it.

    Should the lawmakers represent their constituents or ignore them?

    Even Dims in the state, 53%, favor it.
    This is another dumb post by Whodey. From the article:

    "it fell short of the two-thirds threshold as required by the Kansas Constitution".

    The people weren't "ignored"; the legal requirements to change the constitution simply weren't met. Yet, you spin this in your usual propagandist fashion.

    Jesus, what's a white guy gotta do to be a terrorist around here?

    It's been proven that Russia meddled in the election, which is why Congress voted to impose sanctions on them. Congratulating the man who was president while Russia meddled in U.S. elections, especially when you're being investigated for treason involving Russia, is WAY different from Obama congratulating Putin.

    Naturally, people dumb enough to vote for Trump aren't smart enough to realize that.
