Climate change

People can believe the info or not about climate change. They cannot believe it away. Mother Nature bats last.

I think another thing may be helping screw it up. I believe that experiments are being tried by gawd knows who to achieve a more desirable result for certain areas. Anytime you change the weather which will affect the climate, you get unintended consequences.

I think it is all so screwed up there is no way to tell what new patterns we will see.

Pelosi damn well better be Speaker.

She knows the House and Congress like the back of her hand. That knowledge will be crucial to trying to hold Trump and Company accountable.

Pelosi is not afraid of them and she willbe more than willing to go for it in hand-to-hand fighting. The last two years may seem like an interlude to what is coming.

Do you know who loves this protest? Trump and his minions and Berners. This plays right intothei4 hands. In addition, the bots will be out pushing for her ouster.

These next two years areas important as any I can remember. I have not worked my ass off, contributed money, and lost sleep for two years so those morons can bring everything down. And yes they are morons if they cannot see beyond their own agenda.

Pelosi knows she will not live forever so my bet is that she will try to prepare some to learn much of what she knows.

Am I mad? You damn well better believe it and those Ďprotestersí can get a lot more done in other ways. I do not normally feel so strongly about these kinds of things but too much is at stake. AND I am holding my tongue.

In the next two years, you will need a ruthless person who knows where the bodies are buried and all the legislative tricks that can be tried. Pelosi is that person. If there is one person that will not be run over or snookered by the Senate and Trump, itís Pelosi.

This is not the time for Ďon the jobí training in fighting the Thugs. You find someone who can match her skill, resolve, and plain out mean let me know.

There seem to be a lot of posts these days about Avenatti. Many of them wish that he would go away. I can understand why not having him on center stage would be desirable. He is who he is and none of his actions should be surprising. In addition, he represents Stormy Daniels and the path they take may not always be one that perfectly aligns with what you may consider to be a better one for resisting Trump.

I will always be grateful to them for their actions, especially the earlier ones. For a crucial period of time, Avenatti and Stormy were the only voices breaking through and criticizing Trump. Every time her name came up, people were reminded of just how unsavory The Donald could be.

In addition, they could not be cowed or insulted into a caricature. Trump seemed to be wary of going after them. Their indifference to his attacks bewildered him and disarmed him. He had perfected that method for dealing with adversaries and had never really developed another effective strategy.

They were a constant reminder of Trumpís darker side. Those in the Trump cult would never believe them but for those who still had doubts, this was one problem that would stick to Trump. If not for Avenatti, the only voices seemed to be MSM pieces that seemed to be bewildered by Orangeman. I will never understand why they did not dissect him mercilessly and keep writing stories that would clearly expose his lies. They seemed to think they had to balance the type of stories they wrote about each side. The fact that he was an irredeemable asshole with no good side seemed to escape them.

We do not owe Avenatti donations for some campaign he seems to be planning or votes for any position he desires. He also still deserves to have his actions checked and no free pass if we think he is wrong. However, I also think that Avenatti and Stormy have earned a place on the stage where Trump is presented. She deserves her day in court and I hope they refile their case in some form. They arenít perfect allies but who is? They are not nearly as bad as some people who should know better. Iím not going to pretend now that they donít belong on our side. They walked point for a long time.
