US military personnel involved in running Trump's baby jails might well consider the fate of other military leaders who've done similar work. Wilhelm Keitel and Alfred Jodl come to mind. "Zur Befehl" is no better an excuse now than then.
How dare Trump call for unity after the Las Vegas incident, when he and his party are tools of the NRA and thus enemies of peace, and when a clear majority of citizens want action to reduce the number of gun-totin' psychopaths on our streets?
I've been pondering D. Trump's neckties that hang six inches below his belt. My conclusion is that he thinks he's a much taller man.
Comments by Trump supporters indicating they will be revolting if he loses the election are reminiscent of support for a similar movement of the past, spearheaded by that great national hero John Wilkes Booth.

Cheney Shoots Again
That dick we all recall from 2003 and Iraq's WMD is back. Sorry Dick, but as the philosopher G. W. Bush observed, "fool me once, shame on--awkward pause-shame on you. Fool me--awkward pause--you can't get fooled again."

Perhaps Members of Congress should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors.
IMHO the proposed "super committee" of the Congress is wholly unconstitutional and unworthy of our democracy. In addition the suggested members are politically and demographically skewed toward representative irrelevance.
