    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.

    Ken Burns. His docs are incredible. Part 3 of his country music doc is by far the best so far. I am biased because it covers Memphis and the music of it in this episode "1955-1963". It was great but emotional to me. Many producers portray death as a form of enlightement to address finality (i:e "the Grey") to deepen for some and distract for others , death. Ken Burns used a highway at night with distant headlights in the fog to address the passing of Hank Williams rpisode 2 " the hillbilly Shakespeare" ,Patsy Cline and Hawkshaw Hawkins " episode "55-63" It moved me to tears but its the best portrayel
    I've seen a producer use. Thank you Ken for keeping it real ...+ 3.14.................
