I am really surprised you want your behind kicked again, did you read the next section in the constitution? where the Senate has the power and authority to try all Impeachments?
do you not understand?
do you need English courses?
You have explained before that you donít understand, and it isnít my job to teach you, go read it yourself.
What I am saying is a fact, not an opinion, but an established fact, that you donít comprehend the fact is hilarious.
It seems YOU have never read the Constitution.

"The House of Representatives shall choose their speaker and other officers; and shall have the sole power of impeachment."- US Constitution Article I Sec 2.

When the House votes to impeach, you're impeached. It doesn't "pass" or "fail" later.

"The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments."- US Constitution Article I Sec 3.

The Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. They either remove from office or not. They cannot "fail" the impeachment, that is the sole power of the House. Article I Sec 2.

Clinton's impeachment didn't "fail".

What a dope!

Too Funny!

Oh no... I have read it, furthermore I understand it.

Yes Clinton was impeached by the house

Yes the impeachment failed in the senate who has the power to try all impeachments

I know you donít understand, I donít know if it is an English language problem or that you canít read past that one article in the constitution or if you are just politically incapable of understanding, as understanding it would oppose what you so desperately want to believe.

but I am not going to play games with you, what I am saying is a fact.

Clinton was impeached by the house, and then that impeachment failed in the senate.

It doesnít matter to me if you remain ignorant about it or not.

"... the impeachment failed in the senate..." No it didn't.

The Senate doesn't have the power to "fail" impeachments. Only to try the impeachment and either remove from office or not. They tried him. They didn't remove him from office. At no point did his impeachment ever "fail".

What a dope!

Funny stuff!

Once you are impeached, you are always impeached you idiot. The only place an impeachment can "fail" is in the House of Representatives.

You are a moron.

Go google impeached US Presidents- Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton will show up- they both were impeached and will ALWAYS be impeached.

I call him "Big Dope".

You can always wind him up real tight by bringing up Clinton's impeachment. It never fails. He gets so mad he gets silly stupid!

He wishes Willy wasn't impeached. Hey I do too, but he was. On December 19, 1998.

Big Fun!

why donít you read the constitution, it is right there in black and white.

The house can vote to impeach ( that is all it is, just a vote, you donít actually need any real issue or investigation, just a vote )

and then the senate tries the impeachment.

it is all there, no ambiguity, nothing complicated.

Well, you are finally toning down your insistence that "Clinton's impeachment failed in the Senate". That's good, perhaps you have learned. You really should grow a tiny set of balls, be a man and admit you were wrong, but no matter, this is fun!

Let me know when you are done "wiping the floor" with me on this matter, OK jackass?

TOO FUNNY!

Can you please define "cracker", as it is being used here ? Thank you.
uk dufus has no decent answer but from my experience cracker is often a low down term for whities. So uk dufus might be as dumb and nasty in race relations as most homosexuals are on this string. Homosexuals buy your own insurance.

And they are not going to hand over the power to you to constrain their freedom. You donít want to marry same sex, then donít, but you donít have the right to tell others what they can do or not do.
This is going to be legal, everywhere in the US, it is only a matter of time. You can sit and stew in your own froth, or you can accept the American ideals of Freedom, Equality and Justice.
From a homosexual point of view you make valid points. But as an adult male I also have the right to offer rebuttal to your recruitment campaigns to the youngsters. I also think my point that the insurance for gay partners will break the bank or cause employers to drop insurance for all. I also think homosexuals donít really see past their chosen communityís interests.
