    Yet he remains president and not a damn thing Nancy Pelosi can do about it.

    No, the working class Democrats realized the elites left them behind for identity politics

    Cummings worried about tomorrow and died before it came trying to impeach Trump..


    A suggestion..

    Matthew 6:34 New International Version (NIV)
    34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    As an atheist, I wonder where Matthew got this wisdom from, which is obviously true.

    And he's on the road to get re-elected.

    It sounds like you're unhappy with the voters... you really think limiting their choices is the proper response?

    I try to avoid predicting the future...

    But I have hope there will be more than enough.

    I think so. The biggest flaw of democracy is its ability to commit suicide. Donald's presidency points in this direction. Donald is a wannabe-dictator and closer to Adolph Hitler than any US president before him.

    I think the Constitution lists good minimums. You can add whatever requirement you would like for your choice of candidate.

    Also, the last President without a college degree was Harry S. Truman (and the one before that was McKinley). It's just not going to happen again today.

    Oh please, Barack Obama race agitated for eight years and he was a Constitutional Scholar who knew nothing about the Constitution and nor the economy and nor HOW capitalism works and nor why it -- rather than socialism -- made this nation's economy great.

    Trump went to Wharton, and with Trump's overriding and culling out of what was taught by the dumber professor's, Trump is exactly what the USA needs.

    Very bad idea. Any idiot in the U.S. can get a college degree.

    Trump claims to be educated so this is your baseline to guarantee what??

    Interesting some people who don't have college degrees;
    Mark Zuckerberg
    David Geffen
    Bill Gates
    Richard Branson
    Steve Jobs
    Steve Wozniak
    Ray Kroc
    Walt Disney

    Only if you can prove that the "educated" are less likely prone to corruption...
