The Ten Questions

I'd like to see the answers to these. In detail.

Ten unanswered questions after Michael Flynn's resignation

This man is a joke. His holding the title and authority of 'command-in-chief' is an insult to the armed forces. It's an abomination. I'm thinking of MacArthur's Farewell Speech at West Point, when MacArthur said "The long gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country." This man has already failed not only the Long Gray Line, but every man and woman who has ever served this nation. He has failed every one of us. He has no concept of 'Duty, Honor, Country.'

For eight years we saw the Trumpkins foaming at the mouth over stupidities and inanities like The Birth Certificate and the Closet Muslim nonsense, passing around endless chimp memes and other such puerile crap, never having the smarts or the intellectual capacity to take on matters of substance having to do with the Obama administration. The childish, shallow, inconsequential babbling of the far right base. This incompetent collection of self-aggrandizing scum is what that has brought us.

Now we have this ... child ... and his crooks and thugs in the Oval Office, and this is going to make America Great Again?

These people have no concept of 'Duty, Honor, Country.'

What a farce.

The Trumpkins like George C. Scott's 'Patton speech.' This one ... MacArthur's farewell speech by Gregory Peck, is far more ... American. And far more important, from a moral and 'American values' perspective. It's not surprising the Trumpkins ignore it.
