I do think if public attitude does not work there may be some unpleasantness down the road for everyone.

A general never wants pessimism to spread among the soldiers or else they would never get the troops to fight. But we are not soldiers. we are just part of the public attitude. Nobody is going to shoot you and there are no bullets to dodge.

I put your "clear eyed realism" in the same category as Tom R's "logic".

Quick question ... When a crook tells his lawyer to plead "not guilty" is he ordering his lawyer to lie in court?

"leave room for “President has less power than assumed” When it comes to the professional government bureaucrats and the MFM ... This president has less power than Obama had. Obama + deep state + uniparty + GOPe + MFM + Celebs > Trump. Notice how some of those who claim they are "the better supporters" of Trump because their doomy perceptions are more realistic start trending toward Trump bashing. I have said it before, pessimism is not the trait Trump needs in supporters. This, from the beginning, has been a black swan event and the only way it wins is to continue to be a black swan event. On that basis "realistic pessimism" is not conducive to support. IMO of course YMMV.

RE: facts and logic ... Logic can't convert false data into truth. It has the same GIGO property as computer software. Conclusions based on facts, assumptions, and inference are only as valid as the assumptions and inferences. Without a complete set of only true facts there are many possible conflicting "valid" conclusions, where valid only means the logic employed was not flawed. Having argued the 3 door Monty Hall "logic" here to some extent I am skeptical of anyone's claim their conclusions are true because their logic is perfect.

"taxpayers weren’t going to have to pay for the wall" Simple fix. Build the wall then take Mexican reimbursement. Dims can't honestly complain about Mexico not paying for something Dims won't allow us to build.

Apomorphine is the eye drop but I read that a tsp (per 10lbs) of 3% Hydrogen peroxide orally works.

For the record ... the audio I recorded with the video was okay but as intended I substituted a carefully recorded version from last week.

Thanks JOM peeps. Managed to play in bands since high school but never pro. Current trio has a few studio cuts and will try to put a few of them up sometime soon. We play the occasional charity or party gig. The keyboard player also plays banjo in a Madison bluegrass group.

Ext, it was JMH who explained the other night that paid Typepad ID isn't the same as Typepad profile. I just explained that signing into the profile was not the problem. That still worked. The sign in info and avatar was not carrying over to blog comments.

"Who tends to get excluded by that?" People who can easily correct the problem before the next election. Some people seem to strongly oppose any rule or voting restriction because that might take away some minority's "right to vote". They might say better for non residents, non citizens, or cheaters to vote than suppress some legit voter with a typo. As in better 10 guilty go free than 1 innocent go to jail. But non resident, non citizen, and cheater votes cancel an equal number of legit resident citizen votes, so the trade off is not comparable to innocents and jail. It hardly seems outrageously unfair to minimize the number of canceled legitimate votes using any reasonable check to make sure voters are legit.

"he knew that making real progress on the Rule of Law would always help him and MAGA, the marginal return in this timeframe was not worth the marginal cost to other things he is doing" Then again maybe he "believed" the opposite. Bringing down the Law Hammer over political "differences of opinion" has not ever worked against dimorats. Possibly because dimorats have put in the long term effort to subvert government institutions while GOPe and chamber of commerce couldn't be bothered. To the extend dimorats are covered by allies in the deepstate they also know where the bodies are buried, the closets with skeletons, and stacks of "Get Out Of Jail Free" cards are hidden. Dimorats would probably have loved to get Trump into the lawfare briarpatch before midterms.
