From Robert Reich, (serving under both Ford & Clinton Admin.). Quoting from a 19th century provision in the constitution. Section 3 of the 14th Amendment bars anyone from office who has been found to have "engaged in insurrection" against the United States. The key word, "anyone".

In the past people have stepped down from office, like Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota did because of some petty sexual innuendo leveled at him. In retrospect that seems absurd to the behavior of some of his colleagues have gotten tangled in. Without even censure.
Though I will say, the former temporary governor of Missouri Eric Greitens, stepped down from office from overwhelming heat from his crazy personal behavior. Didn't keep him from running for a federal office seat in the senate though.

The political climate is too hyped up now. There is no parliamentarian will to do justice for abhorrent behavior. Just throw stones at one another.

And look what happened to the whole country from the 2008 crash. Out & out banking fraud and nary anyone punished. Other than, "now now children, play nice".

Kinda crazy, isn't it?!!

I know that's right!
We only got this one little world, and we're hell bent on ruining it. So a few can live real swell. Been done over & over through history. Wealth amnesia. We never learn.

Take it from Lil Walter.

A couple years later and no wiser. Rematch of two old compromised individuals for the nations highest office. This really seems to show how degraded our democratic system has come to. In one corner we have a life long career politician, should have retired a decade at least ago. Stuck in the 20th century cold war mentality. In the other corner there's a serial fraudster, liar, con-man, currently found guilty of 34 counts of hush money fraud.

Our country is divided by political farce. None of this crap amounts to moving our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness one iota. Throw out the theatrics and the two parties behind the curtain share the same broken economic ideology and foreign policy that serves only the military industrial complex and wall street.

This Deja Vu reminds me of the song, Once in a Lifetime by the Talking Heads. "Same as it ever was, same as it ever was".
Trouble is it just marks the erosion of our democracy like any drug addict and alcoholic denies their habits.

Hi, I'm with you on this. The current tribal system will haunt the country for a long time. The way things are going now is straight to the toilet. The organizations that are supposed to make the country work are bent on tearing it down.

Good Listening

Hi, For a lot more on this subject you should see the postings on the vinylengine.com site. A bit of international commentary there that shows what the world thinks of us at this time.

It's locked out now I see. No surprise there. The world has every right to be critical of our US policy internationally. Its a reflection of our internal economic philosophy that only works efficiently for the upper tier of incomes. Both of our political parties are compromised by it.
