    I appreciate your trust that it will all work out. Personally i worry that the republican politicians will hesitate to fulfill their promised oath to support the constitution considering the fact that 33% of the voters seem willing to believe anything the president says. So far they have seened to be sjirting the conversation. Maybe youíre right that suddenly theyíll take responsibility.

    i donít think you are my enemy at all. I do think it will all work out for some people but not for others. It certainly isnít working out as planned for parents who have lost their children in school shootings, or from people who have lost or face skyrocketing premiums in their healthcare (where is that pesky replacement to the ACA we have been hearing about for what 9 years now). Or for our allies (and ultimately US citizens) who will at least think twice about entering any alliances and deals with us. Or for our raging opioid crisis and homelessness. Or for people who have no pensions and regardless of how hard they try will not be able to prevent poverty in old age. It certainly is not working out well for a sizable number of good and honest hardworking people and I see no hope on the horizon that it will. I see few solutions being offered.

    I totally agree Flowers. Alan, just because you disagree with someone doesn’t make them your enemy.

    Terry, I agree completely, and I wish we could all remember this and treat each other with civility and respect here. We can discuss things without resorting to rudeness, and it is good to have a place where we can communicate with civility.

    you do know that this country, the one you live in, does that as well, right?

    No Alan was not rude. I think she was talking about the general public.

    Green cards aren't easy to get and Trump has promised to make them even more difficult. I guess not enough Norwegians were applying.

    I think it's time we thanked France for the sentiment and retired the Statue of Liberty--it's clearly no longer relevant.
