I agree Joan.  I've been working on it for quite awhile now.

Donald, I wish Pence were out of the picture, too. Who is next? Pelosi! I enjoyed watching her tearing up Trump's SOTU speech! We could use a few more firebrands coming from the Democrats. I live in a very conservative part of the state and I intend to be more critical of Trump, publicly. They need to know there is an anti-Trump in the neighborhood.

I wish Pence would do something impeachable so we could get  the ball rolling on this.

I've also seen the American Library Association standing up forcefully for freedom of speech and freedom of information/​reading.

Following up on (Dominionist and Christofascist) Pence and Trump deserving the boot: I've said that the right order in which to do things is to impeach and remove Pence first. Then the House can deny confirmation to any replacement VP picks of Trump (unlike judges, etc., both houses of Congress must confirm). Then remove Trump, and... acting president Nancy Pelosi!

Though hopefully the election that removes the Rethuglican Party Cult majority from the Senate also boots tRump from the White House, by a margin far too great for voter suppression, cheating, hacking, and Electoral College distortion to overcome!

Ruth, I’ve heard often that the American Library Association (ALA) is like another ACLU on library book ban issues.

What are they going to do if Buttigieg is elected president??

Missouri book ban could jail librarians for loaning 'inappropriate'...

Missouri House Rep. Ben Baker introduced the bill, dubbed the "Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act," in January that calls for the creation of a panel made up of non-library workers who will determine the removal of "age-inappropriate sexual material," from their local branch.

Libraries that don't comply will lose their funding. Library employees providing material deemed inappropriate would be hit with a misdemeanor charge and liable for a $500 fine or a maximum jail sentence of a year, according to the bill's current language.

... the proposal is trying to remove books that promote positive LGTBQ messages.

"This is one tactic that is being taken to try to put forward this idea that children should not have access to picture books about a prince and knight falling in love," she said to ABC News.

I should also mention that, from my POV, Pence isn't just a "boobie prize," he's the poison pill which, from the GOP's angle, might keep the Democrats from impeaching Trump.  Sorry, but that didn't work.  The fact is that both their actions have threatened the wall between State and Church, and they both deserve impeachment on that basis.

Yes Loren, they're both mad and dangerous in their own way.

Comment by Loren Miller on January 26, 2020 at 5:50am

Personally, I think that, if Trump is somehow removed from office, Pence deserves every last bit as much scrutiny as his predecessor got, if not more.  The man is a Dominionist, and I have no doubt but that he would pursue a Christian theocracy in the US.

They BOTH deserve the boot.
