I was reading the article about the tortilla and beans Republican from Dallas who wants to impeach Trump. Probably not a good political move on his part, but just goes to show the kind of weirdness we got goin' on here in the Lone Star State. He knew as a child that Ronald Reagan was a Good Man (can I hear a hallelujah?).

 
But I wanted to say that site seemed to make my computer freeze and I had to do a hard reboot. Just reporting.
