Trump impeachment 60/40 against. Just have the damn election.

As for KC. It was a tough week and hopefully we can keep this homicide number from rising too much higher.

^^^ somewhat agree.

As for marijuana, just look at what is happening to Colorado. There is an increase in crime and the additional revenue is nice but after awhile it declines and is not sustainable. The marijuana "green rush" never lasts forever and then cities are worse off than they started.

Trump will be removed from office because he's a treasonous criminal.

The Democrats are following the rules that were written by the Republicans.

These preliminary inquiries are not the impeachment proceedings. That will start with a vote in the House Judiciary Committee. If they recommend impeachment, then the full House will vote. If it passes then there will be a trial in the Senate. I don't think that all Republican Senators are corrupt. I think, once they see all of the evidence in trial, they will vote to remove.

Why is marijuana illegal? How do you justify imprisoning people for possession? Does anyone really think prison is better for you than marijuana? Are Canadians just stupid, or are we?
