What a treasure-trove of themes GP has covered over the years. It is an awesome accomplishment. You might just say that I am a Guidepost fan! HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, GP!
This was the third impeachment trial of a president and the third acquittal in American history and as the New York Times put it, “it ended the way it began: with Republicans and Democrats at odds.” The bitterness of the process was exemplified by the fact that Trump didn’t shake House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand when he entered to deliver his State of the Union speech, and Nancy Pelosi shredded his written speech into pieces. Too bad our politicians can’t just forgive and forget!
Whatever we want in life — to be in a relationship or be a chocolatier in Madrid — will always require one thing: we got to work on ourselves.
Round about 40 years ago I arrived in Spain as a young thing, enamored of the guitar and Flamenco music. I had been fiddling around with the guitar since my teen years, and never quite got the hang of it, but carrying around a guitar got me into some circles of people who were more expert than I. I love the guitar too much to murder it with my unprofessional playing. Well, after all my experiences with the guitar in Spain, where the heart and soul of this iconic musical instrument will always be, I gave away my original guitar.
We must be brave and face the challenges of 2020 without fear.
The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act was passed in the Senate and the House of Representatives by a unanimous vote and thus could be enacted into law even if President Trump vetoes it. (He signed it.) Good to know that, although far away, the cry for freedom and democracy can still be heard and addressed in some way.
There are so many people in need and so many who could help if they gave what they could to the proper charities. I am so grateful for what I have now in life, after years of strife and struggle. I have a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in, unlike the homeless people frequenting the missions. If we can give thanks to God once a year for our blessings, why not do it every day?
Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren: “I’ve heard that there are some billionaires that don’t support this plan… All we are saying is when you make it big, pitch in two cents so everybody gets a chance to make it.”
The US House of Representatives voted on Halloween to spook Trump with a 232 to 196 vote on endorsing the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry and set up a new public phase of the investigation. House speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, presided over the vote and said “what is at stake in all of this is nothing less than our democracy.” Republicans in the House were united in defense of President Trump, describing the inquiry as secretive and unfair. Moreover, Trump says the “Deep State” — that is, the Washington bureaucracy — has been against him since his election in 2016.
