    1.  Send the military to the southern border
    2.  Amazon is not paying their fair share to USPS and taxpayers are having to pay for it
    3.  DJT is higher in the Rasmussen poll than cheating Obama was at this point in his presidency
    4.  DJT wants to talk to Special Counsel because he is only a subject - not a target
    5.  DJT is going to pull troops out of Iran

    I know some say he doesn't have mental health issues.  Could he be near a breakdown?

      The one mental exam he has had was given the the public; his doctor gave him a clean bill of health.

      That people disagree with what he is doing, or how he is doing it, does not make him crazy.  No matter how many charlatans claim the opposite without any credentials or exam at all, it doesn't make him crazy.

        So you agree with what he is saying about Amazon, USPS, removing troops from Syria?

          I do ! , Syria is a steadfast  Russian allie -what are we doing there anyway ?  Amazon does enjoy a free and unfair ride in the postal system and without the like minded taxation of retailers .

            Hey there ahorseback, How do you know Amazon is getting "... a free and unfair ride in the postal system..."?

            If the talk I have heard about a law that says the Postal Service can't legally offer a delivery rate below delivery costs is true, do we have the Postal Service breaking the law? Or did someone make a misstatement?

            I have done some shipping with all three major providers; FedEx, UPS, and USPS.  I have found the USPS to usually be cheaper, but all three services are in the same ballpark. So, if a huge volume shipper wants to negotiate cheaper rates, I would bet that all three providers jumped at the chance to land them.

            If the USPS isn't breaking the law, then they must have been the low bidder. How does this make Amazon a villain? Would they be as guilty as you think they are if gone with UPS instead of USPS?

          He wants more money from Amazon - every politician on the hill wants more money from every deep pocket.  USPS is, I think, shipping at a loss - they do so for every commercial account, using first class mail to make up that loss.  But whether I agree with his policies or not is not the topic of discussion.

          The topic, and everything I had to say, concerns Trump's insanity.  Whether I, or you, agree with his actions or not does not give either one of us the right (legal or ethical) to declare him insane.  That someone disagrees with you does not make then insane, or even with "mental health issues".  Indeed, I'd have to say that any ego so large that they think disagreements can only come from an unbalanced mind are more than a little unbalanced themselves smile.

            I was attempting to avoid mental stability .... I think.  Can one have a nervous breakdown without being considered mentally unstable?  I don't know.  I would think breakdowns are events rather than a perpetual situation.

      The intervention should have come in the form of not voting for him in the first place. But, now that we're all stuck with him, yes, he needs an intervention that will only happen in the form of impeachment, resignation, or being voted out in 2020.

      Hey Diane,
      There's nothing wrong with President Trumps mental stability. He's just working to fulfill his campaign promise of putting America first. And he's not the first president to have a suspect past. People just don't like him so they promote him as mentally unstable.
      Syria is lost. So, unless America enacts a full scale military invasion we're simply wasting our resources. Former President Obama had spent his presidencey pursuing socialism in America and president Trump is is trying to bolster American nationalism and self dependency.

      As far as the taxpayers are concerned, we pay for everything. That being said, has anyone determined the real effect on the system of Amazons "non-payment" practices? Is what they don't pay more or less than what they produce in the form of sales taxes? Jobs?

      People really should at least try to be knowledgeable of the "entire" story of what President Trump is doing and not let their present state of ignorance and dislike of him rule their emotions. Then again, the Founding Fathers created the Electoral College because they knew "the people" tend to make decisions based on personal desires rather than on what is best for the country as a whole. That's why they elected Donald Trump and not Hillary Clinton.

        I have had several students get jobs at Amazon fulfillment centers.  Actually, centers are being planned for locations that have high unemployment.  I don't understand what his problem, as president, is with Amazon.  When he speaks/tweets, it is as POTUS.  Like a supervisor on a job, you should not talk about the people who work for you.  There is a procedure for that.

        It looks like national security team talked trump down on taking troops out of Syria.

    # 5 -Trump is pulling troops out of SYRIA , not Iran .

    It's the alt-liberal left leaders that needs the intervention Diane , we could start with Maxine Waters , Bernie Sanders , Hillary [apology tour] Clinton , Eric Holder ,  on and on , these poor obstructionists are merely melting down right in front of god and country.   Then we could continue  with the hi -jacked CNN , Msnbc  and others , the media that was once honest , held decent amounts of integrity , reported with fair amounts of accuracy ,......

    Yes Diane , we need a major intervention all right ,in the DOJ, FBI  , IRS ,CIA  for waging full on  hidden party obstructionist wars against not only the candidate Trump but the sitting president Trump , all sanctioned  by a sitting president Obama .
    ALL OF THE above who keep throwing things against the Trump house hoping something sticks .   And as of late  not one charge has stuck to the wall .
    Nice obstruction dance though .

    GA , for one thing I'm married to a USPS postmaster so I have some knowledge of the deals all corporate entities receive , for instance junk mail goes out all but free of charge or pennies on the dollar comparably . USPS is also obligated for some reason to  assist many "last mile " deliveries for UPS  Fed Ex and others etc..... rural deliveries , post office boxes etc.....I am somewhat assuming that mail order internet sales is also mostly successful at the avoiding of state , local and possible federal sales taxes .To Trumps act ,  what is wrong with any possible leveling of the corporate cost "playing field ", If that is the idea behind Trumps actions?   Besides , take a look at the yearly losses of the USPS .

    It's fairly preposterous to suggest Trump is insane , needs an intervention or whatever .What is a decent suggestion is that the 'Trump Deranged " syndrome is widespread for a variety of reasons . Political correctness for one . A generation or two of voters that have become one way or another emotionally entitled in politics, in economic wealth  and then" bottle fed "by a biased news media .   That syndrome then bleeding over into a  pretty large segment of the democratic party .

    Trump won an election that the generally infantile "social media " promised liberals that he certainly wouldn't , Guess what people , time to accept that and move on !
    If not , you are suffering your own need for "intervention ".
    Seriously think about it and stop emoting about it .

      If I need an intervention, I would love for it ti be done.  You can't move forward without knowing what is holding you behind.

        I guess I'm not sure what you mean Diane ,."..... knowing what's holding you behind .........."
        Could it be ,...... just asking ,  that too many people possibly bought into the news media majority that all but promised a Hillary win in 2016 or a Bernie chance to win ? Or are you talking about some other being somehow held behind  ?
        I'm interested .

              I've tried multiple interventions on my sister.  She says she hopes I die and go straight to hell.  I wasn't offended.  I am still will to help her when she is ready.

              As a teacher, I have done many interventions to stop violence.

              interventions are most effective when done by someone who cares.

              Interventions should not be looked on as a bad thing.

                I hope you sister doesn't suffer a serious problem , interventions depending on what they are for , addictions to drugs or alcohol especially can be rejected quite angrily  . Good luck with that if it is.

                Political interventions however are a laughing matter .People are probably born with the ideologies that pursue them throughout life, probably no one ever changes another's  political ideologies  . Unless they are rather politically  uninformed or the very impressionable as in our youth  .In which case it should actually be illegal.

                  Political intervention!  That is crazy!  Obviously, I miscommmunicated.

                  I didn't expand on my sister because I thouoght I had alreadly talked about her  She is bipolar and schiOphrenic.  we noticed her strange behavior growing up.  My parents took her to the family doctor as they did the rest of us.  She graduated from college but has never been able to hold a job for more than a year.  She started sleeping in the backyyard and then wherever  I purchased a house after our family home was torn down.  Another sister and her daughter live there.  Julia, who also abuses drugs, is unable to stay with them because of her drunken behavior.

                  My intervention is praying that the Holy SPirit will transform her heart. 

                  Medication is really impacting me now.  Gotta sleep.  Sorry for errors.

    FYI - Spanky Trump was given the Montreal Cognitive Assessment which is like asking him "What's your name" etc. He has yet to be given an essential complete psychological examination for his severe illnesses which include but may not be limited to, delusion, hallucination, paranoia, anger fits, self control issues, psychopathy, narcissism, megalomania, inferiority complex etc

    This is one sick, disturbed hate filled mentally ill puppy and many experts agree:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9reO3QnUA

    Trump absolutely needs an Intervention, Exorcism and EVICTION from our oval office immediately before it's too late: He's destroying everything America stands for and now he's intentionally trying to decimate the stock market with his insane trade war with China: He needs to go now and many are working diligently to make that happen by indicting him for his crimes;
