GALVESTON

A small group gathered in Menard Park in Galveston on Saturday to rally for the impeachment of President Donald Trump

"We just want him and his affairs to be investigated," Jon Tee said. "We're not here to make decisions, just to fight for what is fair."

Although the protest was small, the group received plenty of feedback, positive and negative, from cars passing by on Seawall Boulevard.

Let the Russians impeach him. They elected him. [beam]

Carlos Ponce

Bailey, you often post some insightful thoughts... This isn't one of them. There was not one vote altered or added during the 2016 elections for Trump. That's from the FBI, James Comey, the House Intelligence committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee. Only a Leftist loon would make a claim that the Russians elected him.

Carlos, it was a joke. Have you right wingers lost your sense of humor?

Carlos Ponce

A joke? Really???[rolleyes]

Jim Forsythe

President Trump on Sunday floated the possibility of staying in office longer than two terms, suggesting in a morning tweet that his supporters might “demand that I stay longer.” The president, at an event in Orlando, told a crowd that he might remain in the Oval Office “at least for 10 or 14 years.

Jim Forsythe

In accordance with the current Russian legislation, the removal from office of the President are regulated by article 93 of the Constitution.

Bailey Jones

Hence the joke emoji.[wink]

Carlos Ponce

It's not a good joke if you have to explain it.

Jim Forsythe

You are the only one he had to explain it to. It was very humorous to all, but a few. He only had to explain it to you, so now you can laugh since it was explained to you, that it was a joke.

Carlos Ponce

"Let the Russians impeach him." Since the article had to do with Trump the "him" must be Trump. Since Russians had no choice in the matter nor any vote in the election, its not really a joke but a bad attempt to discredit the lawful election of President Trump. Your perception of this as a "joke" says a lot about you - and it's not good.

Jim Forsythe

In accordance with the current Russian legislation, the removal from office of the President are regulated by article 93 of the Constitution.

Carlos Ponce

So what, Jim? Article 93 refers to the impeachment to the president of RUSSIA only. One cannot extend this to the president of the United States. Since the so called "protest" referred to President Trump, citing Article 93 of the Russian Constitution is STUPID.

Gary Scoggin

I didn't realize Jim was being serious. I thought it was another joke that goes over the head of some folks. Now I realize he was just being stupid. Sad.

Carlos Ponce

Interesting that Jim Forsythe is well versed on the Russian constitution......

Gary Scoggin

Jim holds a Black Belt in Google.

---------------------------------Always remember,Stupid is as stupid does.---------------------- "If we are going to "Let the Russians impeach him." it would require using article 93 of the Constitution, because that is what the Russians would use. So touchy about something that will not happen, unless Trump becomes President of Russia, which could happen. Carlos you were questioning how I knew about article 93, the answer is the same way you did and the reason I included article 93 in the post, so you would rant about it, you never disappoint. Trump may be impeached, but more likely he will be prosecuted until he leaves office. I would use a poll as to what percentage of a chance it has of happening, but someone does not believe in polls unless they reflect the way he thinks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------Gary, thanks for the kind commits and comic relief.

Carlos Ponce

I guess doing web searches on Russian government is a natural extension for Liberals.

Jim Forsythe

Trump and team also do a lot of searches and tweets on Russian. I guess he is a Liberal. If one is a person who knows nothing about what goes on in other parts of the world, they are lacking. Trying to place someone in a box with a label, reveals the motivities of the person that filled out the label.

Carlos Ponce

"Trump and team also do a lot of searches and tweets on Russian." Can you prove that?

Jim Forsythe

Can you prove that it is not true. Has Trump ever tweeted about Russia,. “Russia, Russia, Russia!” the president tweeted “That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax. And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected." ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Twitter isn't the place to announce a military strike. President Donald Trump tweeted this: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!" You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" Not following his own advice. Donald J. Trump: Why do we keep broadcasting when we are going to attack Syria. Why can't we just be quiet and, if we attack at all, catch them by surprise? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Russia has informed us that they have removed most of their people from Venezuela. Jun 3, 2019 Russia's response. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, however, told reporters that Moscow had not been in touch with Trump on the subject. He said Trump had apparently got his information from newspaper reports, which Russian officials have already denied, or from somewhere else. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Last week, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Trump stated he would welcome the assistance of a foreign country in the 2020 election.

Carlos Ponce

"Can you prove that it is not true," is a jejune response. And "Russia, Russia Russia" is just a chorus from the Left that shows their baseless hatred for the President. And why look up "Russia" on a web search when you have ambassadors and experts on the subject? Sheesh!

Gary Scoggin

"Jejune" -- without interest or significance; dull. Thanks for teaching me a new word today, Carlos. Once a teacher, always a teacher. :-)

Jim Forsythe

Before I reply let me clear my throat, cough, cough, cough. I better watch out because the President and his followers may not like that.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "The worst word in the English language, jejune just bleeds pomposity and snobbery. If you seriously use jejune in a sentence you a) are automatically an a**h*** and b) should be slapped across the mouth."----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Russia, Russia Russia is just a chorus from the Left and the President joined the choir "Russia, Russia, Russia!” the president tweeted". You asked. "why look up "Russia" on a web search when you have ambassadors and experts on the subject?" The answer is because you ask for it. Carlos asked, "Trump and team also do a lot of searches and tweets on Russian." Can you prove that?" If you do not want my response about Russia, do not ask. The President loves to talk about Russia and he is the one setting the tone.

Carlos Ponce

Talking about Russia is not the same as doing a web search on the topic.

Carlos Ponce

"Jejune" - until seventh grade I was brought up in Texas City schools and it was on our vocabulary and spelling lists. A perfectly good word.

Gary Scoggin

My goal is to use jejune in a sentence in the next two days and in a web comment in the next two weeks. I like that word.

Jim Forsythe

Thank you for criticizing my response to you question as being very simple and unsophisticated. You already have seen my response to that word. You said "Talking about Russia is not the same as doing a web search on the topic" SO what do you want to talk about in regards to Trump and Russia, without using a web search ? Almost daily, Trumps tweets about Russia, and this is the way he communicates about what he thinks about Russia. As his Tweets will live forever, as they are required to be preserved because they are official documents, they are his official words. Tweeting has taken the place of Trump talking to us about what is going on. By posting Trumps tweets, I'm posting what Trump thinks. Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Do you think Putin will be going to The Miss Universe Pageant in November in Moscow - if so, will he become my new best friend? Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump "@Apipwhisperer: @MarkPavelich @gentlemanirish @60Minutes EXCELLENT WATCHING PUTIN'S BRILLIANCE AND TRUMP'S. @CBS I LOVED THE INTERVIEWS." Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me

Carlos Ponce

Jim, you made a comment ("Trump and team also do a lot of searches and tweets on Russian." ) and could not back the "searches" part. 'Nuff said.

Jim Forsythe

I have provided many tweets, how many more do you want? If Trump and team is not doing a lot of searches on Russia, they are not doing their job. So I guess you are right. Trump and team searching for help from Russia. Donald Trump dismissed the idea that accepting information on political rivals from foreign sources was untoward. “It’s not an interference, they have information,” he said. “I think I’d take it. If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI.” "The president and his political allies have portrayed Barr's new investigation as a validation of their complaints that there was something untoward about the FBI's conduct as it began investigating Russian election meddling and possible links to the Trump campaign." SO what do you want to talk about in regards to Trump and Russia, without using a web search?

Carlos Ponce

"Trump and team also do a lot of searches and tweets on Russian." Tweets are okay but you provide no proof of SEARCHES by "Trump and team". By using the conjunction "and" both must be true for your sentence to be true. Suppose I supplied the sentence "Jim Forsythe is human and he was born in 1895", that sentence would be considered FALSE because of use of the word "and" and the second part is false. For "A and B" to be true "A must be true" AND "B must be true". It's simple logic. Check out the chart: https://www.dummies.com/education/psychology/logic-for-dummies-cheat-sheet/

These people are so stupid. Doubtful they even know how impeachment works. The Senate will never allow it.[smile]

Steve Fouga

Do you know how it works? The Senate isn't even involved in impeachment.

Gary Scoggin

I hope they got some satisfaction out of this. If so, that’s all they will have accomplished.

Carlos Ponce

As long as the protest was peaceful this is no problem. " listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story." - Desiderata

Kelly Naschke

Is it really a “protest” when only 3 delusional whackos show up?
