Let’s be clear — 45 chose to do nothing, and not even an impeachment hearing could rid our country of this rouge tyrant.

We have plenty of competent people in government. Many of them were my classmates in college and graduate school. I was almost one of them.

Unfortunately, the federal employees with advanced degrees and formal training in public management and leadership are not elected politicians. (Remember when white slaveholding men decided that only elected politicians could actually make decisions on behalf of the people?). Well, this is just another disastrous consequence when politics trumps government — the public servants with all the actual education, training, and competence for the job can only sit back and watch the shit show along with the rest of us.
