#CWAA: Can We All Agree – 6/24/2018 edition

June 24, 2018

Can we all agree, it’s pretty clear the administration had never envisioned a scenario where migrant children would be reunited with their parents?

Can we all agree, whatever sympathy Melania Trump earned as the ‘suffering wife’ of her sex-obsessed husband, dissolved with her wardrobe choice?

Can we all agree, the unnecessary trade war Mr. Trump started, will not end well, since other countries have figured out that if you call the President’s bluff, he will back down?

Can we all agree, legalized marijuana is a fact in the United States, despite Jeff Sessions objections – even the FDA agrees?

Can we all agree, the only people who don’t think Mr. Trump’s business dealings represent a conflict of interest are his most rabid supporters?

Can we all agree, progressives underestimated Mr. Trump’s supporters in 2016, but they won’t in 2018 or 2020?

Can we all agree, restaurant owners might be within their rights to refuse service to politicians they oppose, but it won’t be long before we have ratings such as ‘GOP friendly’ or ‘Democratic favorite.’

Can we all agree, this week’s Supreme Court decision, requiring warrants for cellphone location data, creates a problem for all those TV shows tracking criminals with cellphone data?

Can we all agree, we should not be immune from criticism from the United Nations, regarding poverty?

Can we all agree, it seems odd that it took Intel over a year to discover that their chief executive had a consensual relationship with another employee before he became CEO?

Can we all agree, the proposed government reorganization is pretty much ‘dead on arrival’ but it shows the skewed priorities of this administration?

Can we all agree, the plan comes just days after the Senate rejected the administrations proposed spending cuts  offered to soften the blow of the tax  bill?

Can we all agree, it would be great if we had a president young enough to have a child while in office – like New Zealand’s Prime Minister?

Can we all agree, The White House has no overriding philosophy other than undoing anything that has President Obama’s name on it – this week it was ocean protection?

Can we all agree, a drop in disability claims when the economy improves, suggests that maybe some workers were not as disabled as we thought?

Can we all agree, the United Nations’ Human Rights panel has problems, but withdrawing is not the way to promote change?

Can we all agree, it’s rather remarkable that no one batted an eye when a newspaper investigation showed a cabinet member may have profited financially from a decision his agency made?

Can we all agree, the administration clearly missed the State Department’s “Tips for Traveling with Children” when they developed their immigration plan?

Can we all agree,the Koch brothers care about only one thing, and will oppose anything – even public transportation plans – if they think it will cut into their profits.

Can we all agree, The President’s plan for a ‘Space Force’ sounds like a Saturday morning cartoon?

Can we all agree, it’s taken 18 months but some media outlets are finally rethinking the way they cover the administration’s propaganda and lies?

Can we all agree, we may not have always agreed with the late Charles Krauthammer, but he was a fine writer and consistent in his beliefs?

and finally:

We should all pause to mark the passing of Koko the gorilla.
