The Uranus Effect

I have read and watched all the sturm and drang about impeachment. I believe we have to act on that. However, there is a lot of crap going on that we cannot begin to know.

I still trust Pelosi. She has never proven to be scared of doing her duty nor scared of
Trump. She has a poker hand and she has no tells. No matter what her cards are, she is a master of bluffing. Pelosi also also knows how to push Trump’s buttons.

She is not acting like I think a lot of us and a lot of other people think she should. It seems out of character.

I call it the Uranus Effect. Scientists knew Neptune existed before they ever could lay eyes on it. When Uranus reached a certain part of its orbit, it “wiggled.” These movements could not be explained unless there was another object nearby whose gravitational pull moved it.

I think her actions are in line with what she knows about a lot of things from info she is picking up to the workings of Congress. I believe there will be only one chance at impeachment that does not get hopelessly bogged down.

She knows she cannot wait for a perfect case. There is no such thing. She does know what may be needed and when. Could she be making a mistake? Yep. Is there a better person to lead this effort? I don’t think so.

Fingers crossed that I am right.
