CWAA: Can We All Agree™ – 12/2/17 edition

December 2, 2017

Can we all agree, after a year of trying to stop the investigation into Russian influence in our election, we now know why the President was so worried?

Can we all agree, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has now reached the White House’s inner circle?

Some Sounds of Silence for your enjoyment

Can we all agree, if the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is indicted, can there be any doubt that The President knew what was going on?

Can we all agree, Michael Flynn’s guilty plea to a single charge, suggests he has a lot to offer Mr. Mueller?

Can we all agree, the Senate tax bill that passed last night, may be a hollow victory and the public really does not care?

Can we all agree, there will be winners and losers, but the long term implications are unknown, even to the GOP?

Can we all agree, passing major legislation which includes handwritten notes in the margin is no way to run a government? We’ve been arguing over commas in the Constitution for over 200 years.

Can we all agree, the public will be more concerned when the government shuts down, as the President apparently wants?

Can we all agree, Kate Steinle’s family may be paying the price for Donald Trump’s decision to make her death at the hands of an illegal immigrant, a campaign issue?

Can we all agree, it’s a bit incredulous that the Charlottesville police did not expect any violence at a white supremicist rally in their city?

Can we all agree, it’s pretty clear blue states, like California, are not going to get much help from the White House when disasters strike?

Can we all agree, taxpayers should not be footing the bill for sexual harassment settlements by members of Congress?

Can we all agree, if the GOP thinks tax cuts for the wealthy, combined with cuts to entitlement programs such are Medicare and Social Security, will win them an election, they are delusional?

Can we all agree, if Sen. Al Franken is forced to resign  the President should too?

Can we all agree, we all wish we had four houses to put up for bail so that we would not have to be confined while awaiting trial?

Can we all agree, with their missile launch this week, North Korea has called Mr. Trump’s bluff?

Can we all agree, any woman can tell you the list of sexual harassers will get longer before the activity ends? Matt Lauer and Russell Simmonds are this weeks’ high profile additions. The jury is still out on Garrison Keillor.

Can we all agree, Mr. Trump does not even understand why the world is troubled when he retweets a false and misleading video from a fringe anti-Muslim group. If I were in England I wouldn’t want him to visit either.

Can we all agree, the answer to the opioid crises is not more DEA agents?

Can we all agree, the White House can deny it all they want but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is effectively a dead man walking?

Can we all agree, between his lies and altered reality the President has a very tenuous grasp of the job he is supposed to be doing?

Can we all agree, no one is surprised a Trump appointee ruled in the President’s favor giving him control over the consumer finance board?

Can we all agree, the Russian teams should be banned from the Winter Olympics in February?

Can we all agree, Project Veritas has no place in US politics, even if the Koch brothers are backers?

Can we all agree, The President is so obsessed with Elizabeth Warren, he doesn’t mind insulting military veterans?

Can we all agree, we need the British Royal Family and a wedding, to take our minds off our own government?

Can we all agree, Ivanka Trump seems clueless about the incongruous image of her promoting women’s rights while in India where her goods are made in sweat shops?

and finally:

RIP Jim Nabors

Can We All Agree – 3/28/15 Edition

March 28, 2015

Can we all agree that Amanda Knox may be the most relieved person in the world right now?

Can we all agree that while there is certainly evidence of discrimination in Silicon Valley, Ellen Pao’s plight was not the right case to make the point?

Can we all agree that Indiana’s new law allowing business owners to discriminate against LGBT couples is a black eye for the state and was totally unnecessary?

Can we all agree that the latest facts surrounding crash of the Germanwings airliner are truly terrifying?

Can we all agree that Sen. Herry Reid’s decision to retire was the right move?

Can we all agree that the the House’s ability to pass a Medicare payment bill, might offer some hope for the future?

Can We All agree that trying to understand the ISIS-Houti-Yemeni-Saudi Arabian-Iranian-Iraqi battle gets more confusing (and critical) every day?

Can we all agree that keeping some US troops in Afghanistan was inevitable?

Can we all agree that Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu is the most cynical of all politicians? Making inflammatory statements before the election and then trying to disavow them weeks after his party was was re-elected.

Can we all agree that the spy vs. spy saga in the Iran nuclear talks is not really surprising.

Bowe Bergdahl

Can we all agree that regardless of whether Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter or not, he should not have been left behind as the US pulled out of Afghanistan?

Can we all agree that Sen. Ted Cruz’s highly orchestrated announcement of his presidential bid rings a bit hollow?

Can we all agree that Sen. Cruz’s decision to accept coverage under the Affordable Care Act, makes a mockery of his  stated opposition – especially since he had other options?

Can we all agree that 230 White House meetings in 6 years, is a bit much for any one company, even Google?
