Is this the start of the Trump takedown? The beginning of Trump's inglorious end?
There's a growing consensus in ex-President Donald J. Trump's camp, sources say, that he should lay low while various law-enforcement and legal entities have him in their sights. Will he take heed?

TOPIC: 
Donald Trump, reeling out of control and following the chaotic dictates of his frazzled mind, continues to wreak havoc and create disorder as he tests the limits of his outrageous conduct.
 
Except, he's a former president and head of state, and hell-bent on utterly destroying what he believes was stolen from him and those he holds responsible for making that happen.
 
What's to be done? What's the fix for this problem?
 
A current president who often seems detached from what's actually happening, and a full-blown megalomaniac who demands he be let back in the door so he can finish the chaos that he started.

︎Are you more aware, less aware or unaffected in your attitude about U.S. politics and its impact on your life?
 
︎How do you measure or gauge your progress in life and that of the nation as a whole?
 
︎Given the precarious times we're living in, do you nonetheless feel confident in the nation's systems of government?
 
︎Do you privately panic about the country's leadership?
January 12, 2022  
President Joe Biden appears to be signaling an intention to run for reelection in 2024, after this term ends.
Should he go for it or not? Why/why not?
 
︎Martha Sepulveda, a devout Roman Catholic woman from Medellin, Colombia, finally was granted her wish to die but euthanasia because she had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurological disease with no known cure that had caused her great pain, she said.
She became the first woman in Colombia to be euthanized without having a terminal illness.
Should a government decide whether you wish to die?
 
January 11, 2022  
Is Trump succeeding at underming Biden's presidency with his parallel presidency? Have Republicans fully yielded the party to Trump?
 
︎Just how much has Trump's failed coup attempt on Jan. 6 last year cost the district of Washington, D.C.? Who picks up the tab, and what was the cost?
 
Eight years ago, 61-year-old Yao Pan Ma, was savagely assaulted in the Bronx while he collected soda cans to pay his rent. Jarrod Powell, a 50 -year-old black man, had pleaded not guilty of several charges -- including attempted murder and hate crimes -- at his arraignment last June 22.
But eight years after the brutal attack, Yao Pan Ma has died of his severe wounds. A security camera captured a man, prosecutors identified as Powell, stomping repeatedly on Yao Pan Ma's head.
Does this case make a strong argument for the state's harshest sentence?
