This is a response Seattlechick's blog since her cowardice disallows opposing or educational responses.

Even in the most insignificant lawsuits there is a principle of sequestration which disallows witnesses from hearing each other's testimony. The reason is the continual search for the truth. If witnesses are allowed hear or discuss their testimony with other witnesses there is the distinct possibility facts may be tainted for a variety of reasons, most prolific of which is the theory of self-preservation.

The members of the Trump Administration have not, date, garnered great trust from the American populous, thus giving rise the use of sequestration in the struggle with the Trump Administration for the truth. Having no other viable argument against an impeachment inquiry, the right wingers try taint the investigation by making it seem like a secret conspiracy when, in fact, the real reason is the gross mistrust in the President and his dishonest subordinates.

The ruse of executive privilege is fast disappearing those honest governmental workers who choose testify. The Southern District of New York assistant attorney general is now pursuing a criminal case against Rudy Giuliani which will, ultimately, cast a pall over his integrity as well as that of the administration. I make note of this to remind those still staunchly supporting the President and his administration they will bear the same pall in their claim to be Americans if these investigations prove to be fatal to the President's administration. Much of the belief on the right regarding these issues is predicated in a severe lack of knowledge in the words and the meanings containing in the Constitution, the same as with the President who hasn't a clue on either the meaning or the status of the Constitution in the United States.

Time to stop whining and feeling sorry for yourselves and either become Americans looking to improve our nation. You're sure as hell not doing that now.

People who continue to support President Trump are un-American as well

The GOP has, for years now, been trying to change the voting laws to enhance their chances of getting elected. Un-American to say the least. Now two of Rudy Giuliani's associates have been arrested for campaign finance violations. This does not bode well for either Mr. Giuliani or President Trump. Furthermore, those blindly loyal followers of President Trump are being swept into the abyss with the two politicians and their criminal associates. The sad part is the loyal followers have no idea they're being ostracized from America simply because they have never really taken the time to consider the facts of this matter rather than the presidential prevarications they have locked themselves in to. This, of course, is a direct result of their failure or inability to actually think about what's happening.

The two associates were arrested on their way to the airport with one-way tickets out of the country. Therefore, it's likely Mr. Giuliani was aware of the impending arrests which then increases the likelihood President Trump will increase his Ambien intake. The hubris which has taken our nation on a sleigh ride down the slippery slope has emerged as more of a danger than an inconvenience.

The Middle Class income is $386.00 higher than it was in 2000. No more need be said about the great Trump economy.

It was just a matter of time

It was just a matter of time those within the Trump Administration began experience guilty feelings over the dishonest and corrupt manner the Administration operates. The "Whistleblowers" are recognizing the current administration is in operation enhance the power and influence of the President himself, rather than the nation. Appointments predicated on loyalty rather than nationalism, and concerted efforts remove the American vote from the People and control it himself, have finally piqued the ire of honest administration members, thus putting the President is full panic mode.

The right wing SFFers have continually attempted divert the attention President Trump's anti-Americanism, blaming the democrats and other non-believers. As much as the left wingers have tried demonstrate this followers of the Pied Piper, their blind loyalty has prevented them from seeing the truth of the matter and are warmed by the wool being pulled over their eyes. At the risk of bearing bad news, this may very well be the beginning of the end and President Trump will be a happy camper just remaining of prison. It's time the music, but I know words fall on deaf ears.

What Learn During Dinner
CHRISTINE CARTER | MARCH , 2008

So many social skills are learned at the dinner table I hardly know where to begin. The research is really compelling around language development and dinnertime – and language is the most important facet of social intelligence we have.

A team at the Harvard Ed School wanted to know where learned the rare words they had found were particularly good markers of literacy. Of the 2,000 words they were looking for, only 3 of them came from parents reading to their . More than 1,000 were learned at the dinner table. This is why dinner loses its power when we isolate meals from adult meals. My 7-year-old isn't going to be able to teach my 5—year—old all those rare words (though I'm sure she could teach her about 250 euphemisms for, oh, just about any bathroom word). I can only imagine how much worse it will be once they are teenagers.

Manners are a more important social skill than we sometimes think. As a sociologist, I believe certain social norms teach about the emotions make up a happy life. When I say, "Molly, don't interrupt your ," I am teaching her about reciprocity and empathy. When they watch offer a guest the best cut of meat, they learn generosity. Simple acts of gratitude, like saying thank you to someone for passing the salt, are happiness building blocks.

Social skills, including language, are just – they are skills are built over time, better learned example than explicit instruction. develop any skill better if they learn it in a routine situation feels safe, and the dinner table might just be the best place to teach and learn certain skills. The good news is there needn't be loads of adults around—single parent families who have regular dinnertime routines reap the same . If you have trouble getting food on the table, check out Leslie Kaufman's plan—and the next video for added incentive.

Based on the undeniable research, it stands to reason the end result, in this case an adult human being, is, in great part, a product of his/her upbringing. So, while the right wing rails against my assertions, the truth is they are a product of their parental guidance. Therefore, the inability to critically think, the inability to rationally substantiate their opinions, their immediate resort to name calling and violence are all products of their developmental skills passed on to them their parents. Therefore, while they may very well love their parents, the education to which they were exposed fails to meet the basic standards of civility and it's those beliefs they fight so fervently to preserve.

When I point this out to them, the education in name calling and violence leaps to the fore and all erroneous parental guidance takes control in their struggling effort to stay afloat in a world which operates contrary to their beliefs. So, I stand my statements and put forth the tenor of their posts as evidence. You see, carrying on a cogent discussion of the issues is impossible for these folks in large part because of their upbringing.

In my seemingly never ending search for some understanding of the Trump Supporter mind, I have a few more ideas.

I thinks these supporters may actually realize President Trump is an inferior person with an inferior mind, however, they are so consumed with hatred and distrust of the left and the Democratic Party, Trump support leaves them with but a singular escape from the the onerous possibility the opposition may, once again, take over the White House, with the added penalty of taking control of the Senate as well. The very thought of any portion of this scenario sends them into attack mode which includes long since retired candidates and elected officials. It actually becomes the wherewithal which enhances the workings of the current administration, which in and of itself is a fallacy.

Personal attacks on Hilary Clinton and Barak Obama seem to strengthen the bonds between a failing president and a following blinded by the hatred and distrust garnered from erroneous parental guidance President Trump's recent performance at the G-7 Conference vividly demonstrates presidential prevarication and the loyalty it seems to grow in its following. If you weren't embarrassed by this, you can count yourself among the followers of whom I speak.

The sad part is no explanation of the President's malfeasance and misfeasance has been able to dissuade these loyalists away from a path dangerous to our nation.

I have re-read the Bill of Rights and cannot find any of first amendments which states the president can do anything he wants, yet our erstwhile, but ignorant, leader had referred an amendment which grants him such authority. Those of you well versed in the Constitution are respectfully asked point me where this is written. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and understanding me.

Reality- foreign to the right wing

The pernicious belief in racial superiority begins with dinner table lessons doled to 3 and 4 year olds. Logical thinking individuals do not either seek or support legislation limiting the voting rights of any group without garnering the label of a racist. Racism is not limited to discrimination against Blacks, but include Hispanics, Muslims and nearly everyone lacking similar background to those seeking such legislation. It begins insidiously with the belief one is a member of a racially superior group fully capable of creating an environment conducive to peaceful and advantageous lifestyles predicated on the mores instilled in the racially superior, but undereducated, group seeking legislatively supported racism.

The group of whom I speak has successfully ruled for decades and the current movement to legislatively ensure control emanates from a growing movement toward a more equal distribution of power and wealth. Part of the insidious portion of their beliefs lies in the erroneous belief they are not racists, rather law abiding Americans seeking maintenance of the status quo, the status quo, of course, being the proper manner to treat individuals under the long established paradigm. They fail to see or understand their beliefs are the very essence of racism. They fail to see or understand this because this is the belief system they have been taught to live by and cannot muster the intestinal fortitude to even consider an alternative. Instead, this thoughtless group chooses to deflect their uncivil beliefs to those who attempt to educate them. It is far from coincidence these folks support a President who lacks the mental capacity to make the considerations necessary to provide effective leadership.

Virtually on a daily basis, the person identified as "Leaf" throws bait to the conservative coy fish swimming and trapped in a small pool. Likewise on a daily basis, the coy fish take the bait and respond with ad hominem attacks worthy if their icthyological status. Then the right wing trapped swimmers take the hatred they so desperately rely upon for sustenance and attach it to all who possess the unmitigated gall to believe something they neither understand nor believe. In addition to the comedy this scenario creates, it also creates a sadness and an incredulity predicated on the fact these miscreants have a say in our government via the voting booth.

Furthermore, the principle of cogent thought and discussion is as foreign to them as the languages of other nations, and in some cases our own nation. Nonetheless, this activity continues. Leaf continues to throw out the bait and the unwashed continue to take it. When will they finally catch on?
