CWAA: Can We All Agree™ – 2/24/18 edition

February 24, 2018

Can we all agree, by proposing to ban the sale of AR-15 assault rifles to minors, Florioda governor, and Senate candidate,  Rick Scott is doing the minimum he can,  without totally alienating the NRA?

Can we all agree, President Trump has already flip-flopped once, and now apparently feels introducing more guns, by arming teachers, will gain him the most points with the NRA?

Can we all agree, it will take a lot more businesses cutting ties with the NRA, before the organization changes its position on gun control, but there has to be a starting point?

Can we all agree, every grieving family in Florida wonders tonight, if their son or daughter would still be alive if a deputy had found the courage to go in to the Parkland school, or if the FBI had acted on the phone tip saying the Nikolas Cruz was ‘going to explode’?

Can we all agree, the drip, drip, drip of indictments and guilty pleas from Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation seems to suggest that the noose may be tightening around the Trump family?

Can we all agree, the Conservative Political Action Convention is still fighting the 2016 campaign?

Can we all agree, Mr. Trump’s analogy about immigrants and snakes is simply wrong?

Can we all agree, when a world leader such as Justin Trudeau, can have a disastrous foreign trip, and get worse headlines than Donald Trump Jr. someone should be fired?

Can we all agree, GOP donor Sheldon Adelson just wants to have naming rights  for the new US embassy in Jerusalem?

Can we all agree, it seems a bit suspicious that while Russian and Chinese ships were both filmed helping North Koreans avoid sanctions, no Russian ships were named in the latest round of sanctions?

Can we all agree, supporters of the ‘March for Our Lives’  protest in Washington may have set an unrealistic goal of attracting 500,000 people?

Can we all agree, California politicians have finally figured out how to deal with Trump’s threats,  – just ignore him?

Can we all agree, the tide has already turned in the gun debate and supporters of gun control will be lucky even to see more money for gun-violence studies?

Can we all agree, with all the schedule maneuvering the networks did to get major events shown live in the US, you have to wonder who thought televising the gold medal women’s hockey game at 2:00 a.m. Eastern time was a good idea?

Can we all agree, the gold medal by the men’s curling team, will finally spark some interest in a sport that gets no respect?

Can we all agree, it’s nice to see a major company, like KFC, at least has a sense of humor, as it deals with a chicken shortage in the UK?

Can we all agree, even the latest  climate skeptic being named by Mr. Trump would have to agree that Arctic temperatures 45 degrees above average is not normal and the world is not doing enough to avoid disaster?

Can we all agree, Melania Trump’s parents benefitted by the chain migration rule the President wants to eliminate?

Can we all agree, Jared Kushner’s nightstand will have less reading material on it, if chief of staff John Kelly decides a security clearance is necessary to read classified reports?

Can we all agree, on reflection, it seems pretty obvious why fewer people are working...the Baby Boomers are retiring – although it took the economists a while to figure it out, because it doesn’t fit the conservative narrative?

Can we all agree, the Russians are not the only ones who can use social media to inflame debate, and shutting down US born bots on Twitter is just the first step in making the internet a more open reflection of society?

Can we all agree, it’s tough to see a US President feign empathy with grieving parents one day and then read openly false conspiracy theories about classmates of slain students the next?

Can we all agree, the Trump administration simply has no regard for ethics either personally or in the awarding of no-bid contracts?

Can we all agree, Americans have a low opinion of most politicians because some just say stupid things such as “most shooters are Democrats.” 

Can we all agree, Florida voters will forget Senator Marco Rubio’s performance this week, if he runs for re-election in 5 years?

Can we all agree, the rest of the GOP will feel the heat in the upcoming special elections and the mid-terms?

Can we all agree, if Beto O’Rourke can force the GOP to spend money defending Senator Ted Cruz, his long-shot bid would be worth the effort?

Can we all agree, Mr. Trump’s attempts to blame Mr. Obama for allowing Russian meddling, conveniently ignores the role Senator Mitch McConnell played?

Can we all agree, a return to paper ballots may be the answer to our election mess but it won’t change how a foreign country can mold public opinion?

Can we all agree, the new court-drawn Pennsylvania House districts may change that state’s politics and determine who controls congress after the 2018 elections?

Can we all agree, it’s one thing to have an affaire, but why would the governor of Missouri take nude pictures of his partner and think they wouldn’t cause problems later?

Can we all agree, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu may be the only Democratically elected leader in more trouble than Mr. Trump?

Can we all agree Billy Graham’s crusades marked the rebirth of the evangelical movement, but to many Jews he was just another anti-semite?

Can we all agree, given a choice between robots and immigrants, we’d all take the immigrants over the robots?

Can we all agree, this new AI drone technology  will be put to use in all the wrong ways before long?

Can we all agree, Lebron James spoke for every athlete when he answered Laura Ingraham.

Can we all agree, it’s about time Neanderthals got credit for the cave art they created 45,000 years ago?

and finally;

Next time you’re looking for a cruise make sure these folks are not on board.

and

If you wan to ad-lib the national anthem, don’t do it on national TV.
