CWAA: Can We All Agree™ – 1/6/18 edition

January 6, 2018

Can we all agree, anyone who needs to tell the world they are “a very stable genius” is not?

Can we all agree, Democrats think they will finally have a smoking gun to impeach Mr. Trump, if they just adopt the Watergate era mantra and ‘follow the money?’

Can we all agree, $18 billion for a wall no one wants will be tough pill for  Congress to swallow while trying to avoid a government shutdown and allowing “Dreamers” to stay in the country?

Can we all agree, The GOP is trying to distract the public’s attention from the Mueller investigation by reviving an investigation of the Clinton Foundation and seeking an indictment against the folks who collected the Russian dossier on the President? I doubt it will work.

Can we all agree, residents in the Northeast are more concerned about the snow and cold, than anything going on in Washington?

Can we all agree, Michael Wolf’f’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” is just the first of many ‘tell-all’ books about the current administration– given the way they have burned through staffers in their first year?

Can we all agree, Mr. Wolff was quite magnanimous in thanking Mr. Trump for the extra press, but we wonder if his ‘box of chocolates’ comment was a reference to Forrest Gump?

Can we all agree, Mr. Bannon might make up with Mr. Trump, but he may have permanently  lost the support of his right-wing base?

Can we all agree, Attorney General Jeff Sessions badly underestimated the support the marijuana industry has in many states?

Can we all agree, the chances of increased oil drilling off the US coast is slim and none, given the reaction of GOP governors and congressmen?

Can we all agree, Trump has no use for s state’s rights unless they suit his purposes?

Can we all agree, with Silicon Valley aligned against the FCC, it could be a while before ‘net neutrality’ actually ends – if ever?

Can we all agree, despite adding 148,000 new jobs, and Dow Jones closing above 25,000 most Americans have not seen much improvement in their standard of living?

Can we all agree, Intel may face a raft of lawsuits because of the flaw in their computer chips, but most Americans have no idea what they need to do?

Can we all agree,  replacing the  artificial coloring in Dunkin Donuts will not make them healthy?

Can we all agree, Mr. Trump thinks that weilding US assistance as a lever to force countries to do what we want is the only way to conduct foreign policy?

Can we all agree, North Korea has won the latest round of verbal sparring by separating the US from South Korea?

Can we all agree, trying to figure out what’s going on in Iran is just impossible?

Can we all agree, the cynical actions taken by the administration and the EPA, while most Americans were celebrating the holidays, are the hallmark of an administration which has no moral compass?

Can we all agree, Orin Hatch’s departure from the Senate might add another Trump critic to the Senate, but it’s doubtful it will change the vote totals? But Doug Jones’ election will force changes.

Can we all agree, Judge Roy Moore’s supporters have taken politics to a new low by setting fire to the home of a woman who accused him of impropriety?

Can we all agree, the more Mr. Trump tweets the more trouble he creates for himself?

Can we all agree, this administration  cannot even organize our annual census without creating controversy?

Can we all agree, the voter fraud panel should never have been created and referring their responsibilities to Homeland Security is absurd?

Can we all agree, appointing the wife of a powerful Congressman to a government job is a bribe? The same could be said by foreign government’s treatment of Trump’s projects around the world.

Can we all agree, talk of controversy with the New England Patriots football organization, may cheer the haters around the country, but it won’t prevent the team from another trip to the Superbowl

and finally:

If you really want an explanation of what might happen in the Mueller investigation, listen to this segment 0f Fresh Air on NPR.

and:

If you’re heading to NYC in the Spring to visit the Metropolitan Museum, be aware that it might cost you $25 per person unless you can prove you live in New York.
