Let's impeach him for conspiracy to murder American citizens without indictment, trial, nor conviction of a crime. He's CERTAINLY guilty of that ! Aren't Dems and Libs SUPPOSED TO BE against that sort of thing ?!

But the correct spelling and the pronunciation for that specific type of storm is "nor'easter", NOT "northeaster". No publication that I know of uses "northeaster". That's just not the name of that particular type of storm.

Unfortunately, yes.

:(

I prepared for this possible horrible nightmarish contingency. One of the reasons I moved to Arizona last year (besides the BEAUTIFUL weather) is because there is plenty of open desert land for sale here.

I bought 19 acres of land out in the desert (since a lot of Arizona is desert, a lot of cities, towns and places are located in the desert). I also bought seven 40 foot long cargo containers very cheap.

I am looking at general contractors who will excavate part of my land, place the cargo containers in the excavation, and then bury them (leaving some openings of course). I will then convert them nito a beautiful undrerground home (where the temperature remains a constant 55 - 60 degrees year-round), and I will be "off the radar screens" and away from the prying eyes of The Obamanaic's black helicopters and Kenyan thugs and henchmen.

SUPPORT THE 2ND AMENDMENT !

SUPPORT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION !

GOD BLESS RONALD REAGAN !

So you agree when John Adams signed a document that specifically stated that this nation was not founded in any way upon Christianity
I also agree, it was not
I agree that you are taking out of context to mean something it does not.

Just minutes after you post this comment the mongs in the shallow end of the gene pool started splashing about. It appears that whining ain't limited to democrats.

The Impeachment Process
In the House of Representatives
The House Judiciary Committee decides whether or not to proceed with impeachment. If they do...
The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeachment.
Based on their inquiry, the Judiciary Committee will send another Resolution to the full House stating that impeachment is warranted and why (the Articles of Impeachment), or that impeachment is not called for.
The Full House (probably operating under special floor rules set by the House Rules Committee) will debate and vote on each Article of Impeachment.
Should any one of the Articles of Impeachment be approved by a simple majority vote, the President will be "impeached." However, being impeached is sort of like being indicted of a crime. There still has to be a trial, which is where the US Senate comes in.
In the Senate
Wait..... what was that? There still has to be a trial?????????? That's where the Senate comes in??????????
The Articles of Impeachment are received from the House.
The Senate formulates rules and procedures for holding a trial.
A trial will be held. The President will be represented by his lawyers. A select group of House members will serve as "prosecutors." The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (currently John G. Roberts) will preside with all 100 Senators acting as the jury.
The Senate will meet in private session to debate a verdict.
The Senate, in open session, will vote on a verdict. A 2/3 vote of the Senate will result in a conviction.
What is your point Mona?

Bill Clinton was impeached, plain and simple. That never changes, he will always be an impeached President.

The fact that the Senate failed to convict doesn't change the fact he was in fact impeached.

I was going to say that it looks as if you were dropped on your head as a baby. But it is apparent that it was more like someone grabbed you by the ankles and tried to bash their way through a brick wall.
