Note to the #BlueKoolAidBrigade:

Attempting to prove President Trump lacks competence, lies, or is an asshole does not rise to the level of obstruction of justice or any other crime.

Attempting to prove President Trump did not engage in obstruction of justice or any other crime does not disprove claims that Mr. Trump lacks competence, is a proven liar, or is an asshole. (Nor does it prove such things either.)

Points to Ponder:

"Few things annoy me more in the economic sphere than giant businesses which seek to use the law to crush their smaller competitors. The law is supposed to provide justice for all and that does not happen when you have larger groups connected in various ways with government agencies which use the law as an instrument of their perverse plunder.

My general philosophy with buying anything is to go with smaller business over larger business whenever its reasonably feasible to do so and folks who want to do that should have the freedom to do so if they choose." [Shawn McElhinney (circa June 6, 2013)]
