Friday Pick Six: “The Week We Turned the Corner”

9
144

It is a wet and soggy day in the far south. We have endured two tornado watches and one warning already. It is tough to post articles when the rain is pouring down. We get the net by satellite and the signal comes and goes in hard rain. So, I have been offline most of the day.

We made it through the week! Indeed, “we” (the family here) think that we’ve turned an important corner. Not only did Ambassador Bill Taylor testify to the direct quid pro quo, but we even have indications that Trump tried the same act with China in the trade negotiations. We also got an important court ruling on the Mueller grand jury documents, an order declaring the impeachment inquiry to be legitimate and lawful. That is a great way to cap the week.

Our six picks this week are celebratory, whether we “feel” successful or not, we have turned a corner. Do you feel it? Let me know in comments.

YOUR WEEKLY REAL PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT BARTLETT

Provided we aren’t rained out, we’ll be around all weekend. Hope everyone gets a chance to relax a little. I understand that many work through the weekends. I can relate. I just enjoy working with football on, rather than news all day.

Take care, I love the feedback in the comments and let me thank you for the dozens of encouraging emails I get every week. I have heard from four continents, and I try to respond to each one. Our family here is bigger than we often realize, and growing. Spread us around to friends and family, donate if you have the ability.

Thanks, all.

Peace, y’all

There are places I go online for fun. I follow about 20 Tumblr blogs (mostly Trek), and some other blogs as well.

Yours truly is dumb enough to tangle with trolls on YouTube forums, mostly over my beloved MCU.

I mostly avoid YouTube, and always avoid their comments and forums.
