I call defying subpoenas as an act of guilt...hiding information because it will incriminate you. If he were innocent, does anyone not think that he would be giving boatloads of info to Congress, and screaming out about it...but, he's not. He's just trying to hide the truth and put out one fire after another ...it's obvious, and it's no secret!...guilty.

From day 1 to today.  I don't think obstruction of justice, obstruction of congress will not be included in the upcoming Articles.

Strange as it may seem I have heard of a dude named Jean-Jacques Rousseau. 

 

And a few other philosophical type guys. They were mostly drunks, though.

 

Immanuel Kant was a real p### ant who was very rarely stable;

Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy begger who could think you under the table;

David Hume could out consume Schopenhauer and Hegel;

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as schloshed as Shlegel.

 

There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya about the raising of the wrist;

Socrates himself was permanently p*&&*d.

 

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will

On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill;

Plato they say, could stick it away

Half a crate of whisky everyday.

 

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,

And Hobbs was fond of his dram.

And René Descartes was a drunkin F@rt,

"I drink, therefore I am."

 

Not my fault, someone else brought up Monty Python and now I'm stuck on it.

 

Anyway, I agree with everything you said. I was replying to:

 

"The Constitution frames Democracy, born out of the French Revolution, it and Capitalism replaced feudalism, the age of Kings."

 

It was the other way around. Our constitution was first. All I'm sayin'.

Man, I do enjoy that Monty Python song. That was fun.

Even retiring GOPers refuse to condem Cadet Bonespurs for involving foreign Governments in our elections.

 

The message is clear - we cannot have Democracy AND Republicans in office.

 

VOTE OUT THE GOP IN NOV!

It's all about Trump trying to become a dictator by ignoring the "Rule of Law". Incredibly, Republicans in Congress defend his atrocious, dictatorial actions. If President Obama would have defied a lawful subpoena, those same Republican members of Congress would have been outraged.

Trump Defying Supoenas

 

Three co-equal branches of government, a division of power in government, checks and balances.

 

We all know the drill.

 

Congress and the Courts have ceded to much  power to the President for a long time.

 

All fun and games, until it wasn't 

 

The Constitution frames Democracy, born out of the French Revolution, it and Capitalism replaced feudalism, the age of Kings.

 

Now Democracy is under attack and Capitalism  is concentrating wealth into a small segment of the population.

 

Time for a New Deal, the old one isn't working for to many people.

 

Restore Democracy in government and extend it into the workplace.

“You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role.
