Joan: in Massachusetts, honesty is not compatable with politics. Just consider the number of politicos either charged or in prison for corruption. Iâll leave party affiliation to you.

Whatâs the big deal? Our peoples choice President does it all the time. Does this case indicate that the POTUS is guilty of fraud?

Controlling the Climate is a non-issue. Apparently, many have forgotten the truism âitâs not nice the fool Mother Natureâ. What a display of arrogance if one believes we can control the weather.
