    I will say that the constitution forbids emoluments from foreign states, and having the Pence clan run up a tab at Trump Doonbeg on the US taxpayer dime is not a foreign emolument. It's just standard grift.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."
