Trump famously said he could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and get away with it in the sense that he would not lose any voters. Well, if he can do that, he certainly could get away with impeachable offenses without getting impeached.

Let's hope that the Dems will filibuster this abomination in the Senate. Repubs have 54 seats in the Senate.They need 60 votes to stop a filibuster so there should be no problem.
Thanks for your comment, Paul. Unfortunately, too many of the good jobs these days are with industries like Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, chemical companies and the oil and gas industry. A lot of those employees like Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs feel like they're doing "God's work." Even Dow and Monsanto have the slogan like they're going to "feed the world." For the fossil fuel industry they're making America "energy independent." And of course the military -industrial complex is making the world "safe for democracy." Each person has to decide for themselves where the truth lies.
Paul, thanks for your comment. How did you sign in?
This is an important document by Frank Thomas which should be widely distributed and read. He refutes the "climate change deniers" and backs up his writing with exhaustive research. Problem is the Trump administration and other climate change skeptics really don't care what happens to planet Earth 100 years from now. All they're interested in is short term profits. So a few people will get to go back to work in the coal mines until they come down with black lung disease. Many more are currently being employed in the renewable energy industry. That's the future.
Reich speaks the truth!
