The head of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Univ said Trump may be in pre-dementia – unable to finish a sentence without drifting off into distraction.
The people ahead of the government change their minds. The 245 Democratic votes to revoke the national emergency is a triumph of truth and humiliation for Trump. He goes to his corner as a clear and present danger as McConnell goes to his insider trading
Public spirit can be restored with community centers and taxation of the rich. Medicare, Medicaid, Pell grants, Low Income Housing Tax credits, HUD, SNAP, EPA, Department of Education, The Legal Corporation, WIC food assistance, the National Institute for Health, and school lunches are achievements, not excesses or frivolities to be punished!
Mudslinging + enriching the super-rich = cynicism and mistrust In the horse-sparrow theory, horses must be fed so the sparrows can live (cf. John Kenneth Galbraith). In Adam Smith’s invisible hand theory, the common good or public good happens when everyone pursues their self-interest. In truth, the economy exists for people and not the other way around! The economy is a part of life, not a sledgehammer crushing self-determination and creativity. In Chinese, the same Chinese letter represents crisis and opportunity.
Is Trump synonymous with burlesque government, by scandal, cynicism, and incompetence? He appointed the Eli Lilly CEO as Secretary of Health and Human Services after the price of insulin skyrocketed 300% in ten years! No, corporate profits do not equal community health.

Spring forward. Truthfulness is like a leap across seventy thousand fathoms of water (Soren Kierkegaard). Trump’s resignation would be an act of political courage and would save the country trillions! One act of courage can be more important than a thousand sermons! (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
