Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes…  but no plans.
  —  Peter Drucker
[This sounds remarkably like #DonTheCon’s platform for the 2016 presidential campaign…  Promises…  Hopes…  But only his secret plans to “make America great again”; which he alone could make happen…  Yet, after three years in office, he still has not revealed a single plan.  Could it be he never had ANY secret plans???  To fix health care?  To get us out of wars in the Middle East?  To solve the Israel / Palestinian problem?  To lower crime or decrease gun violence?  To fix immigration?  Has Mexico paid one peso to build the wall?  To get better trade deals?  To disarm a nuclear capable North Korea?  Just asking…???  In #DumbDonald’s case, “commitment” hasn’t been the problem.  The problems have been his lack of ability, intelligence and integrity.  On second thought, no…  Even discounting those three obvious failings, he’s still a below average to absolute failure as a President.  Unfortunately for the country (and the world), he is just one of those pitiable individuals who history has tragically promoted FAR beyond his level of competency.  —  KMAB]

Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.
  —  Isaac Asimov
[I hope I am incorrect, but I honestly do not believe a single Republican in either the House or the Senate will vote to impeach or convict #DonTheCon.  We are rapidly approaching a sadder day for the GOP than his nomination or election.  We are approaching the day when the GOP abandons all moral authority to lead the country and surrenders the Constitution and the rule of law to a criminal running the government as a cult of personality.   Assuming he continues to vote his conscience, history will show only Justin Amash of Michigan, (a lifelong Republican who last July 2019 switched to Independent) was the only Republican who had the courage to defend the Constitution.  I could almost (ALMOST) understand if the Republican defense was “What the President did was against the law and wrong, but we don’t feel it rises to the level of an impeachable crime.”  But, they (Republicans) won’t even go that far because it would then require them to censure the President in an election year.  The GOP will be confirming they are a party of liars and cowards.  —  KMAB]

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.
  —  Ralph Waldo Emerson
[Whenever I feel like I’m obsessed with hoping #DonTheCon is forced to resign, I think of Senator Barry Goldwater’s quote:  “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.  And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”  While I would enjoy seeing #IncompetentTrump voted out of office, every additional day he is in Office is another day when America’s freedom and security —  and the security of our allies  —  is put at risk.  —  KMAB]

Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain, and most fools do.
  —  Benjamin Franklin
[Hmmm…  Since I criticize both his policies and the man himself, (to no practical effect,) does this make me a bigger fool than #DonTheCon?  Just wondering…  —  KMAB]

Laughter gives us distance.  It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
  —  Bob Newhart
[I can shake my head and feel sick in the pit of my stomach, but I can’t even make myself smile at his (#DonTheCon) obvious lies and attacks on reality.  Maybe, when he is finally out of office for a few years, I’ll be able to laugh at his bumbling / criminal incompetence and overall ignorance.  But right now, I am too close.  And the bedrock values my country as struggled so long and hard to establish are in danger…   —  KMAB]

He had delusions of adequacy.
  —  Walter Kerr
[It also describes #DonTheCon’s competency as President.  When he was elected, I vainly hoped the Office would somehow elevate the man.  I KNEW it would not, but as an optimist, I hoped.  I felt the same when “W” was given the election by the Supreme Court in 2000.  I wasn’t entirely wrong, then.  “W” may have been a terrible President (tax, war, economy and environmental policy-wise), but at least he didn’t actively try to destroy the country’s institutions the way the current President is trying to do.   I guess it’s true that the Presidency hi-lights your weaknesses as much as it does your strengths.  The unfortunate thing is there is no way to predict (even at this mid-stage of his Administration) how much damage #IncompetentDonald will do to the country I love, to our allies around the world, to Western civilization, or with climate change – to the entire planet.  I only hope that last sentence is hyperbole.  I fear it isn’t.  …And I’m an optimist!  —  KMAB]
