Protest

I went to a protest at RDU today.

It was fine. Just...strange. We waved signs. We chanted. We admired each other's signs. We massively exceeded the numbers they expected to show up and the protest was eventually dispersed.

"There's one planned for April 15th," people told me. And I thought "It's not even February. It's been a WEEK. April is a thousand years away. I don't believe this can last until April 15th. I don't know if I believe it'll last until March."

We live in very, very strange times, and they are happening faster than I ever thought possible.

Given there are calls for his impeachment already, on at least three different [valid] points... yeah I don't see it lasting.

Which is really no reason to give up though. After if everyone fails to plan ahead because we think it's going to be all over in a matter of weeks... it won't be.

The difficulty is that it will require some 14 House Republicans and 19 Senate Republicans to vote against the party's President.

That said, it's going to be a rough four years, no matter whether we're dealing with President Trump, President Pence, President Ryan, or President flavor-of-the-week.

I suspect Pence is probably Trumps best insurance... you might just manage to get enough Republicans in both houses to get behind an impeachment movement, especially if it can be proved he was receiving funds from Putin [a lot of them have mind-sets left-over from the Cold war era.] ... but none of those could swallow Pence being POTUS not the VP.
