    The brilliant observations of another:

    “General of the Army Douglas MacArthur signed the Japanese surrender document that ended world War II with five or six pens, depending on the account you read.

    ”Apparently only two pens total were used to sign the German surrender document, although Eisenhower himself didn’t sign.

    ”Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev used two each to sign the INF Treaty, arguably the US’ biggest victory in arms control and the sign that the Soviets had blinked.

    BY COMPARISON, NANCY PELOSI USED 20 PENS TO SIGN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT YESTERDAY, TO PASS OUT TO democrat ALLIES, ALL THE WHILE GRINNING LIKE SHE WAS SIGNING THE GREATEST DOCUMENT SINCE THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT**.” (bolds/caps mine)

    **fought tooth-n-nail by the democrat Party!

    Hey GoofBallGootch: newsflash – using multiple pens for important signings is pretty standard practice for politicos of all persuasions. Don’t let your faux outrage or real ignorance hit you on the way out.

    One is a criminal the other isn’t. One honors America, the other dishonors America. Which one signed a letter of commitment with Russia while the US had sanctions in place? Which one received trademark protections from Russia while US sanctions were in place.

    Who’d want anything trump touched, you have no idea where his hands have been.

    Hey hey hey – remember those heady days of 2012 8 years ago, when the Dems ran a relay marathon down East Wash with boxes and boxes of recall signatures (were those pens and boxes paid for by the Dems??). I’m sure ABob and geo among our other heroes were slobbering at the 1 million signatures (actually 50000 or so less than that) – WE GOT SCOTTY HITLER NOW!!! Now the impeachment trial – WE GOT TRUMP HITLER NOW!!! We all know what happened on June 5, and it’s going to backfire to give you 4 more years of Trump in November. Like Walker, Trump is just putting his nose to the grindstone going about the country’s business with a smile on his face (Geaux Tigers), once again driving Dems crazy.

      950,000 signatures? Any normal person would call that a million. Everyone called it significant. Next.

        Seriously…SERIOUSLY??? Any normal person would feel exponentially more stupid just reading that!

        You take the same math class as Toriana Pettaway?

        What’s concerning is the level of comfort you display with positively crippling ignorance.

        Try owing Tony Soprano a mill and show up with $950 large; let us know how things fly.

          Discovering he’s dug himself into a hole, leave it to AnonyBob to drop the shovel…in order to bring in the backhoe.

          Um…we were discussing yet another in the <LOOOONG line of highfreakin’larious Lefty EPIC FAILS, this particular one AKA our thrice-elected Governor Walker’s second electoral victory; which has/had nothing to do with The Donald.

          But you’re so thoroughly trapped in chronic/end stage stampeding-past-#12-on-the Trump Derangement Syndrome Scale that’s it’s warped your perception of a fact-based reality.

          How warped? Well, let The Gotch tell you; you’re posting incomprehensible drivel ~ 03:00 in the morning.

          Or might that be because you’re hiding it from your wife in an effort to forestall another much-needed TDS intervention…?

          It’s not 3:00 a.m. where I am Gootchbrain. I’m seeing how much better they have it in a country where they threw off their corporatist dictator, instead of country where you’re doing everything you can to encourage yours to run a declining empire into the ground.
          And, as usual, you can only deflect instead of counter my point. Weak.

      ”driving Dems crazy.”

      That’s not really saying too much, Bob; crazy’s a DAMN short trip for Lefty!

      Especially since 11/08/2016, when Lefties (most, not all) began a dangerous, yet voluntary, immersion into a catatonic, apoplectic, pillow-biting, pants $#!tting, bed wetting, wind-sucking, chest palpitating, vital sign triggering, mouth-breathing, fist-pounding, foot stomping, safe-space seeking, weenie-whiny, simpering-whimpering, complete metaphysical, emotional, existential, psychological, philosophical, full-throated, freaking out, melting down, totally collapsing free-fall

      Not an enviable state of affairs for those perilously close to the dark abyss to begin with, am I right?

      Heck; just reading AnonyBob’s inane slobberings will confirm that!

    What is the opposite of progress?
    Congress.
    They are in despair over the decrepitude, color and incoherence of their candidates. (last years fave just taken to jail.) Bernie, Biden and Pocahonkey have never had a job outside government and academia. Never. That is a staggering lack of usefulness in their collective 200+ years on earth.
    The Pelosi Congress has no accomplishments to mention besides ruining faith in our electoral system, witch hunts, an impeachment based on nothing and feeding magic beans to a flatulent media. (Raise hands. Who misses Swalwell?)
    My, how things have changed in four short (though hugely entertaining) four years.
    The Dems have yet to figure out the fairly obvious.

      If only it WAS the Pelosi Congress. The Pelosi House, however, has passed 100’s of bills to fix what ails this country (including those sound and well-earned articles of impeachment), that Moscow Mitch refuses to advance because he cares not one whit about this country. He’ll pay the price when he loses his majority.
