Two Weeks of Leftovers From the "Year From Hell"

By Daddy

Las Vegas — The two weeks of my vacation seem to be overflow from "The Year from Hell," during that time we have had two events that are of such a magnitude that one has to wonder how long we're going to last as a republic.

The United State Capital has only been breached twice in our history. The first time was by the British who set the building on fire in 1814. The second time was an insurrection by United States citizens incited by a sitting president in 2021. Five people died and over fifty people wounded. We don't know how much damage was inflicted to the building, but we can say it's significant given the photos seen.

The second event is even more disturbing. Only four Presidents have been impeached in the history of the United States. However this time set a record, it is the only time that any President has been impeached twice. This time the president was accused by Congress of "Inciting To Insurgence" as a result of his speech to a rally outside the White House while congress was assembling to count the electoral votes.

Now the interesting piece of trivia is that there is no time limit for when the house must pass the impeachment to the Senate. There is nothing that requires that the Senate to take it up. Officials have indicated that the Senate would not take it up before the 19th when they are scheduled to reconvene. It's unlikely that the Senate will take it up on the last day of the current term.

The incoming Senate is evenly split at 50/50 with Kamala Harris being the tie breaker. However Impeachment requires a 2/3rds majority to convict. In this case that means 17 more people from the Republican side. So the question is how many Senators has Trump pissed off?

So why take it up with the incoming Senate?

Two interesting reasons: According to the Constitution Article I, Section 3 says: “Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.” If convicted Trumps political career would be over.

The 1958 Former Presidents Act which provides post-office benefits to former presidents; these currently include a $200,000/year pension, health insurance, a yearly travel budget, and a full security detail, all at the taxpayer's expense. Trump could be disqualified from these benefits.

Over the past month I've developed another diabetic foot ulcer. It snuck up on mr because I couldn't see it being it was in the arch area. I called up the wound clinic to schedule a visit. It turns out that they had dropped my insurance company and referred me to the previous wound clinic that had dropped me after two visits. They are back on my insurance company. They want me to go have a ultrasound and have the have the CROW boot be checked for fit.

I have all of the large items bundled up in the new mesh clothes hampers, two rolls of quarters, and ready to go to the double size washer a bit down the street. I need to do the laundry on one of my "High Energy" days as it takes a lot out of me.

My workstation credenza is almost done for the current iteration. The big thing is that the rats nest of cables in back have been tamed. The cubes have been rearranged to a more usable format and that last big project is almost complete.

I've been able to get a lot of work done on one of my software projects. Given the dearth of information on the internet, it appears that I'm the first person to interface Swift to a COM library. I'm do the point where I can initialize the library and working on calling the first function.

To all those that have donated, Thank you! January is a bit tight but I have a good start on it. Any help is appreciated. Here's a link to the How to Donate Page
