Impeachment? Don't be goofy. Unless, maybe...

I have never been one to jump up and down about impeaching a President. Impeaching Bill Clinton, in my opinion, was a terrible waste of time and political capital. The raving loons who wanted to impeach the eeeevvviiiillll Bu$hitler were just that, loons. I have also felt that same way about people going on and on about impeaching Obama.

Almost nobody jabbering about impeachment knows what it actually is; most people think it means "throw the bum out!" They have no idea where the authority for impeachment comes from, who does what to make impeachment happen, and what "high crimes and misdemeanors" means. Doing things you don't agree with politically does not cut it. But here is an action that fits that high standard:

"He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner." Emphasis mine.

That might be an article of impeachment for Obama if the current story about targetng conservative groups plays out in that direction; it fact it was part of the articles drawn up for Richard Nixon. Thing is, Nixon did not actually do any of that; it was only alleged by John Dean, in a recollection of one if Nixon's frequent rants, that Nixon wishfully said it would be great if they could audit opponents. In fact, Nixon was audited while in office!

With this growing scandal, the lies and cover-ups about Benghazi, the failures of his gun control initiatives, immigration reforms, and the ever-more-clear coming disaster of Obamacare, impeachment may not be needed. Maybe Obama will pull a Nixon and go. Of course, then we'd get Slo Joe the Dunkin' Doughnuts Guy. Lord help us.

Arlington National Cemetery burial for Boston bomber? OMDB!

Both my parents are interned there, on a hill overlooking the part of the Pentagon that was struck on 9/11. My father had worked there, as did I on occasion. Arlington National Cemetery is a place of peace and honor. IF the Department of Veterans Affairs even considers this zany idea, I will personally raise a shit storm of protest. IF they actually approve it, I will go to Arlington to stop it. IF they force it to happen, I will move my parents to a place that is not disgraced by such a despicable and grotesque episode.

People have commented that the person making this offer is batshit crazy. The insults bats, shit, and crazy people. Comments on the video are pretty strong, so beware.
