FIVE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST TRUMP INTRODUCED BY HOUSE DEMOCRATS

Editorial Comment

If the good people of Alabama elect Roy Moore with full knowledge of the allegations against him, and the senate votes to expel him, there would be no excuse for the senate not doing the same when the voters who elected a senator were unaware of his past misconduct. - BK

Editorial Comment

He’s a comedian (an unfunny one) so I suppose he’s trying to be funny, considering his past association with Bill Clinton.

And remember what Donald Trump said in the infamous Access Hollywood recording: “When you’re a star, they let you do it.” Al Franken not only believed it, he practiced it. - BK - BK

Editorial Comment

When people consider healthcare a right, it raises the question of just how much healthcare is a right. Do people have a right to every treatment available regardless of the cost? If that becomes accepted, it will bankrupt us all. - BK
