For all those waiting on impeachment. For all those poo-poohing the condemning resolutions.

As always, there are many different tribes. I note that even here on DU, faction (sorry Tom, we’ve all succumbed to faction here in the future), runs rampant. I’ve also noted in the past that the conservatives always were better at marching in lockstep than the liberals, and in the end, it’s why we are facing a SCOTUS that will hold progress moribund for decades, amongst other challenges.

But here’s the thing. Condemning resolutions really aren’t going to do a damned thing. Going on record blah, blah, blah. Really? Neither is impeachment. Because no way will the senate vote to remove. It’s an exercise in futility, which won’t even really end up making you feel better.

Lest we forget, these are the morons that in the 1980s, in response to NASA’s alarm that climate change may be something we need to worry about, called Michael Crichton to respond, not any climate scientist with any standing, and in the ensuing 30 years, what exactly have they accomplished concretely about it? Not one damned thing really. I only trot this out as one example, one can easily find many more.

All of you folks who are saying “so and so has access to classified info, I don’t, I can’t make an accurate assessment”, well, they’re convinced that they won’t ever have to “show us the money”, and that’s the one thing that they’re terrified of doing, because if they do we will see that their job, their only job, is to cover for one another.

I really think we have entered a period of time where I’m just hoping the government will do as little damage as possible. I end up seeing nothing but attempts to prop up the status quo.
