I know this has already been touched on, but I am struck by the clarity of thought. At a time when Trumpspeak seems to run rampant in our society, there are still some who can form entire sentences and make their thoughts known.



“When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history,” Brennan tweeted Saturday in response to a tweet by President Donald Trump attacking McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey.

“You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you,” Brennan added.

Brennan may well be among those indicted.

SB is fantasizing again. Lèse majesté is not yet a crime in the US. Trump delenda est.

That is one pithy sentence. Works for me.

Simple sidenote: "Dustbin" is too kind. In the USofA we call them "Garbage cans"

Another good quote from this morning:

Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina, said if the president was innocent, he should “act like it” and leave Mr. Mueller alone.

I like to throw this in from time to time: So far he has killed fewer people around the world than most presidents and I give him marks for that, even if it's only because he really doesn't know or care about the rest of the world. Both Bushes and Reagan were far far worse in that regard.

Except that the damage he is doing to the courts and Congressional oversight has the potential to kill far more in the future.

Or maybe it will all blow over in a few years and new lying dirtbag presidents will get back to massacring people around the world the old fashioned honorable way. We'll see.

The older I get, the more I believe that we should live our lives as if we lived in glass houses.

Well if Donald manages to pull it all down, and he's doing well at that now, it does give the country a chance to change the rules and restrict the Royal powers of your president and the large matters of electoral gerrymandering and the stuffing of the USSC.

Trump delenda est.Yes. Let us hope our American democratic republic survives Two Scoops. God forbid that the RWW anarchists prevail in the long term.

"If your client is innocent, act like it". Gowdy was referring to Trump, but not directly telling the president* "If you're innocent, act like it"

I'll just point out something Herself remembered. In Victorian times, "dust" was a euphemism. The problem of "dust" in London's overcrowded working class areas made famous by Dickens ... was a problem of sanitation. Of sewage.

Yeah, Trump may be well suited for the "dustbin" of history.

Herself mis remembered.
Dust in Victorian times was a valuable resource

The direction this thread has taken stirred a deeply seated oddity in my memory and I now find it related to rubbish in a roundabout way.In the days when Yellow Pages could be regarded as the source of contact details for businesses I found an entry for a Mungo and Shoddy merchant,following a quick search I now know what they did.

My father was in the rag trade, so I knew what shoddy was. I did not know about mungo though.
