EDITORIAL:     Investigating Trump

The House Democrats dumping dollars and hours into investigating the President instead of into dealing with legislation are prostituting their Constitutional mission with nothing but political animus to justify their extraordinary distortion of their official duties. This addition, after the evident failure of their Mueller probe to topple their target, marks these folk unfit for the responsibilities for which they were elected. They are attempting to negate the voters’ choice instead of doing their jobs.

No doubt enough of them are as guilty as they assume is the Prez; would it not be fully appropriate for him to return their suspicions by initiating criminal investigations of some of them, via the FBI? And if he does not pursue such fat targetst, why would that be?

    Well, hello there Jack. I know it’s been years since I’ve commented or visited. Somehow thought to look up Cowboy Press and visited an article from ’12 and saw a comment by you. Seems that blog has been inactive since ’15, and it doesn’t even sound like the CP blog I used to visit and comment on. Anyway it reminded me to come by.
    Used to never miss you Gleanings. Maybe can get in the habit again. Looked at some of your more recent articles. I think you’re still doing a great job.
    Doubt I’ll be commenting much though as about all I could say would be anecdotal and of not much “expert” knowledge.
    About all anecdotal I have now is what it’s like to finally in recovery from 9 days of H3N2 at age 77.
    And that is realizing that I’m at the point I’m NOT wishing I was dead.
    Think maybe next year I’ll follow doctor’s advice on shot. My doc is 88 and still sharp and practicing.
