Impeachment, the Infographic, and the Messy Desk

“Did you hear about the impeachment?”  “Is the President impeached?”  “Does the Supreme Court try the President?”  “Trump is not going to get impeached.”  “Ms. Nakatsuka why is your desk so messy?” We had already covered impeachment at the end of September. We had discussed the facts and procedures — impeachment is a charge, it not a conviction; the House impeaches, the Senate holds the trial; the Chief Justice presides over the trial, etc.  We discussed past presidential impeachments. Presidents Johnson and Clinton were the only presidents to be impeached. No, President Nixon was not impeached. And we discussed President Trump’s pending impeachment.

In 2020, Our Bitterly Divided America Needs to Recommit to The Golden Rule

As we move full speed into the election of 2020, we can feel the pull toward division, domination and revenge in our politics.

She co-founded MoveOn.org as a bipartisan effort to move the nation toward healing and away from division.

The Danger of American Plutophobia

The movie industry is as good a place as any to take stock of the national mood, and if this year is anything to go by, we have plenty to worry about. I’m thinking in particular of three films, each wildly successful either in terms of critical acclaim or box office results, that share a similar theme: hostility towards the rich. First came Jordan Peele’s widely acclaimed horror film Us, in which a shadow world of miserable doppelgängers serves as a thinly veiled allegory for class warfare. The have-nots in the film are represented as virtual zombies, condemned to a life of servitude and emulation of their counterparts on surface, living happy and carefree lives.
