What is an impeachable offense?

President Clinton lied under oath when asked if he was ever alone with 'Miss' Lewinsky: "I don't recall."  Demon Rat congress critters gave him a pass for that.  They gave him a pass on witness-tampering charges in connection with his conversations with his secretary Betty Currie and others.

So why are Demon Rats not willing to give Trump a pass for less than what they gave Clinton a pass for?

The question answers itself; we are not in the realm of logic, intellectual honesty or wisdom-loving here.  We are in the realm of politics without philosophy.  And the only thing Nancy Peloser is considering in whether or not to impeach Trump is how it will affect her party in the next election, and not whether it's the right thing to do.  It's the only thing Demon Rats in 1999 cared about when it came to the subject of impeaching Clinton.

This should be blazingly obvious to anyone who paid attention both times around.

We can turn the tables and ask why Republicans are willing to give Trump a pass when they didn't give Clinton one.  Well, for one thing, Trump didn't lie under oath.  (Note I said "less than what [Demon Rats] gave Clinton a pass for.")  For another, Democrats are supposed to be intellectually and morally superior, as they imply with any number of things they say about themselves (including labeling themselves "progressive") and about Republicans ("basket of deplorables/irredeemables," etc.).

It's not exactly like the GOP is hot shit (remember when they drank the Sarah Palin Kool-Aid? how they condone evolution-denial? how they treat cannabis users like children?  how they dogmatically cling to "rights begin at conception"? etc.), but something about the Demon Rats today says: intellectual account overdrawn.

Make Presidents Great Again

or: What Would Marcus Aurelius Tweet?

The first four presidents of the United States - Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison - were philosophical people.  They loved, cherished, and pursued (and may even have attained to some extent) wisdom.  (The American Philosophical Society [APS] of which they were members was co-founded by Ben Franklin; let's call the aforementioned the Big Five of the American Founding.)  It's not a stretch to say that had America's founding generation not been of the intellectual and moral caliber that they were - had they not been the sort of people who would found or become members of a philosophical society - America probably wouldn't be the great nation it has been.

Unfortunately, their legacy has been squandered, to the point that we have the shitshow of today.  Having an uncouth, unread man as president - elected mainly on the promise of taking on the (intellectually bankrupt and therefore) corrupt swamp that is D.C. - is but a symptom of th…

#BlackLivesMatter, #EqualPay and the Anthem

The athletes disrespecting the flag and country during the National Anthem should do better than Trump.  Instead of sowing further division and sending all kinds of the wrong message (and Kaepernick and by extension Nike definitely crossed over the line with the Betsy Ross flag thing without even so much as a word of dialogue with flag- and country-lovers - roughly as shameful and disgraceful as Google's rebuttal-by-firing of James Damore[*]), they should use their creative powers to both respect the flag and send their message.

[*] - This particularly ugly episode in "woke social justice" history has me believing with at least 98% confidence that Rectenwald has these anti-dialogue cultists dead to rights.  I cannot abide these aspiring mini-Maos; disgusting creatures.  I won't even touch the trans issue with a ten foot pole given the rampant toxicity/radioactivity there I've seen just on surface inspection.  If an entity like Google fucks up as badly as it did wi…
