The object of golf is not just to win. It is to play like a gentleman, and win. Phil Mickelson

As recently released and reported, the last text from Lisa Page to Peter Strzok - senior folks within the FBI - was on Friday, 23 June 2017 ...

"Please don't ever text me again."

The reasonable conclusion, she knew they (adulterers and more importantly parties to high crimes) had been caught. 

While Barack Obama was still in office, Page texted Strzok that the President wanted "to know everything we're doing" (while preparing material for Director James Comey to brief President Obama).  

The reasonable conclusion, as to ongoing (criminal) operations to support Clinton's campaign and subterfuge Candidate Trump. 

Of course Obama knew. 

He colluded with his Cabinet, Clinton, DNC, media, et al., and yes, the Russians, to destroy Trump.  

Thank god our citizenry had another idea.

Now the 'paper' trail truth continues to come. 

But what will the DOJ do?

My heart wants to believe doggedly pursue justice. 

But my head trumps heart and says stand by for Attorney General Sessions, in analogy citing times a decade ago regarding big business and big banks, to say ...

"The scope of this government corruption, though sickening and a grave threat to our country, is too big to pursue and prosecute. But rest assured we've taken measures to ensure it cannot happen again."

Blah, blah, blah. 

Difficulty nor pain should be variables carrying out what is right. 

After watching an hour-long interview with Representative Trey Gowdy (R, SC) last night, two thoughts before retiring for the evening ...

1. What an admirable citizen and public servant and a damn crying shame he is opting to return to private life (Thank you, Mr. Gowdy for your selfless service);

2. Why is not the personal integrity integral to the game of golf not core to the business of public service? 

More so, why do we citizens tolerate anything less than stalwart public servants? 

No I don't think that's an unreasonable nor unrealistic expectation.

Mr. Gowdy, and others, stands as proof.

Oh dear how do I concur, ref Gowdy. He WILL be missed, probably tired, tired of nothing happening. What a great AG he'd make.

Reminds me of the scene from "The Untouchables" where Sean Connery is mortally wounded yet in agony is able to utter before death, "What are you prepared to do?" Our Nation is at stake. We had better get this right.

" Why do we citizens tolerate anything less than stalwart public servants?"
It brings to mind an old coffee commercial (Folgers, I think.) where it ends with:
" As John Arbuckle once said: You get what you pay for."
Boorish societies will elect boorish politicians.
