A Poem*

Of all the people I have seen
I would call her
The beautiful
The most beautiful

Of all the words I have heard
I would call hers
Poetic
Very poetic

Any artist will sculpt her
Any poet will write about her
Even the nature will love her
My life will be spent in her memory

*Paraphrased from a Kannadasan poem.

Funny Answer

Joe Biden, former Vice President of USA and former Senator is considered as one of the brightest and intelligent politicians within the Democratic Party.  There are 24 people vying for that Party's nomination to be the Presidential candidate.  Last night, they had a debate.
 
The moderator Chuck Todd asked each and every candidate the following question:
 
What would be the first thing they would if they were elected President.
 
Biden replied: The first thing I would do is make sure that we defeat Donald Trump. Period.
Hey Uncle Joe, if you were elected President that means you have already defeated Donald Trump.

How Impeachment Works in U.S.?

U.S. Constitution allows Congress to impeach and remove the President. The House debates and votes whether to bring charges against the President. All it needs is a simple majority in the 435 House members. The House has 235 members from Democratic Party, 197 from the Republican Party and 3 vacancies. So the Democratic controlled House can easily pass a resolution to impeach Donald Trump.
 
Once that is done, it then goes to the Senate for an impeachment trial. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court presides. The Senate has 100 members. Two thirds majority vote is needed to convict the President and remove from the office. The Senate has 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and 2 independents. It is almost impossible to get a two third majority (67 votes) to convict the Republican President Trump in a Republican controlled Senate.
 
The leader of the Democratic Party in the House, Nancy Pelosi, is not in favor of impeachment because it will not get Trump removed from office since the Republicans have majority in the Senate. Suppose the House passes impeachment resolution and the Senate rejects it, it will backfire on the democrats during the 2020 presidential election. Trump knows how to manipulate the media. Trump will put up a show as he is the poor victim and gain popularity and easily win the election. Also, the general public will get tired of the democrats.
 
What do I think? I think the democrats will talk about impeachment, but not go forward with it, until the election time next year.
 
Wait and see.
