Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we will find the way.
  —  Abraham Lincoln
[It now seems likely that John Bolton’s book (to be released in March) will open up the spillways on what (to now) has been the leaking dam of the corrupt and incompetent Trump Administration.  We are likely to see a continuing death by a thousand cuts throughout the summer and into the election and the cuts will get progressively deeper as #45 continues to lose court cases – particularly about his taxes and finances.
How long until the Senate Republicans give up their fear of #45?  A third of all Senators are up for up for re-election in 2020.  23 are Republicans and 12 are Democrats.  The Democrats must hold ALL of their seats and pick off four of the Republicans to take control of the Senate.  This is a tall order if we have a “normal” election.  It seems to me more likely the Republicans will hold their seats if they dump their dead weight now than if they continue their support and face a massive vote against Trump.  The two questions are:  1) will the voter purge (of likely Democratic voters) be enough to tip the scales to the Republicans in the critical states, and, 2)  will Republicans not show up for #45 (in protest) and / or not show up en masse to protect the down ballot candidates (the sitting Senators).
The lesson of Nixon, Bush (I) and Obama is to cut your losses, take your lumps in the short run and come back strong in Congress before retaking the White House.  Having impeachment witnesses and then convicting and removing #45 will be better for the Republicans than full retribution in November.  If they don’t call witnesses, they lose for cynical hypocrisy.  If they do call witnesses (and documents), the trial drags on until they convince Trump to quit (like Nixon).  If they wait too long, they will not have time to rally around whomever they finally fall back on as their candidate.  Their best chance for November is to lance the boil quickly and as cleanly as possible…     —  KMAB]

No institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it.  It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under a leadership composed of average human beings.

We believe that according the name ‘investors’ to institutions that trade actively is like calling someone who repeatedly engages in one-night stands a ‘romantic.’
  —  Warren Buffett
[With the Dow at very near an all-time high, a “normal” market “correction” (a 10% drop) will still leave the market above 25,000 which would still be a historic end of year high.  The only questions are when will the correction eventually happen and how far past “normal” it will go?  Okay, three: how long will it last?  Remember, this is the first Presidency to have an 800 point drop in a single day…  Of the top five daily losses in Dow history (roughly 120 years), ALL five have happened during the current Administration.  So far, we’ve recovered from each quickly…  —  KMAB]

Political extremism involves two prime ingredients: an excessively simple diagnosis of the world’s ills, and a conviction that there are identifiable villains back of it all.
