Democrats in Congress are making themselves a laughingstock with yet another silly impeachment attempt. But it sets a terrible precedent that you use the impeachment process to go after your political opponent — a lesson not lost on the Republicans. Pity any president in the future whose opposition party controls both houses of Congress. When and if that happens, this politics by impeachment will come home to roost, and it may well be a Democrat who walks the plank.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
