    My zip code is once again abuzz......(but will it do any good???)

    I'll pass over mentioning my zip code yet once again and cut to the chase as it were. Awhile ago I was sent home from work as it's really slow right now so I was able to access my personal phone and found a phone tree voice mail in regards to Trump......apparently there is a representative named Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, who is forcing (or is calling for a better way to put it?) a vote for impeaching Donald Trump.

    You'all of course know by now that I am no friend of Trump and neither is my zip code - but I also have to temper my joy with some reality at this late stage in the game. Is an impeachment vote even practical at this point, given that the Democrats have already started debates to whittle down their candidate count for 2020? What could a successful impeachment vote achieve at this point, and what are the realistic chances that such a vote would pass the GOP controlled Senate?

    I guess what I'm asking is this - is my gut instinct that calling for an impeachment vote at this late date a total waste of time and taxpayer money? I'd love to see Trump out of office. I still have an outfit waiting for such a day and I now have a nice watch to wear with this outfit and I even have a few American flags to fly around should Trump be impeached - please don't think I don't want him out of office. My point is that it's likely too late at this time, or am I totally off base here? There are posters here who will not be the slightest bit shy of letting me know that I'm off base if this is their perception......Rob

    The only way he is going to be out of office is if someone assassinates him. Or, if people wake up and see how much damage he is doing to the country and environment. I doubt that will happen though because too many people have blinders on. They only care about his Republican designation.

    Bae, Al Green filed paperwork to the effect that Donald J Trump is unfit to be President of the United States. He goes on to specify specific ways in which Mr. Trump is unfit. Rob

    Those ways he's supposedly specifying appear to be the contents of several tweets, but I suspect his real motivation is to show his willingness to do just about anything for attention.

    This is also the third time Rep Green has forced an impeachment vote. The previous two were handily defeated in the House by votes of 354-58 and 355-66 respectively.

    Sounds eerily similar to what appears to be the motivation for those tweets.

    We're getting there. Although I doubt it perhaps the third time will be the charm.
