It will be interesting no doubt to hear the Republican arguments for severely restraining legislation on any future president from the Democratic Party while they maintain Trump's sainthood. Austen's advice on impudent men should be borne in mind.

What is Austen's advice on impudent men?

I'm asking the same thing Freesia asked.

It costs others' "regard." Peter may have some other passage in mind, though.

It does appear that there are no constraints on Trump. He has spent the last three years testing the boundaries and now he knows that there are none. As he said the other day regarding his imminent impeachment..."I'm not worried".

Very true.

The other day this scene from "Jurassic Park" popped into my mind. It's where they talk about how the dinosaur (the really big one - the big nasty guy who eats the lawyer!) has been testing the fences, looking for the weaknesses. Something about "nature finds a way". And the guys ostensibly in charge thought they had been so clever.

Speaking of things popping up - nice to see a post from you.

It's good to see you too, Freesia. You went missing for a while.

I was thinking of the line from Pride and Prejudice regarding the scumbag Wickham where Elizabeth internally resolves to draw no limits in the future to the impudence of an impudent man. They have no bottom.
