    So, if Trump fires the Special Prosecutor, how many decent people in the government will decide to retire or resign? If that happens will he then declare martial law and try and nationalize all local law enforcement officers? Will there be national guard and regular duty military in the streets? Is this the prelude to the declaration of a new "Russian" style nation where voting means almost absolutely nothing at all?

    Nope, the Deep State is the former #Obama Administration bypassing FISA and illegally wiretapping anyone they wanted to. Not only that but allowing it to be shared with the multitude of agencies as his last executive order. They should all be tried, Hillary, Obama, Lynch, Clapper, etc for high crimes and misdemeanors. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, Server Gate, Running Guns To ISIS, attempt to throw Isreali Campaign utilizing our money to do so, Wiretaps on Americans, Keep Your Doctor, Budget Slush fund Stimuli Programs that benefitted no-one. The crimes that the past Administration are endless and down an infinite depth rat hole. Seth Rich, the PD That was just killed on the Beach, Presidential Election 2016 Tampering by DHS in Ga and others states that we do not know of. DEEP STATE CONSPIRACY IS THE TRUTH - ANYTHING #Obumma was involved in and continues.

    #10 interesting question. Offering my second book around publishing houses, preparing my debut movie (and the preview for the winter) and maybe getting back to some school for digital marketing. I am also performing poetry sometimes, and write occasionally to magazines, whilst blogging and learning photography on the side. Thanks for asking!

    @Whitney Raver, this piece deserves a lot more attention than it appears to be receiving -- because contrary to what the title suggests, it is NOT the low ramblings of a drop-out Millennial trying to justify a life being semi-unemployed, but the chronicles of a determined achiever. Sharing this and hoping more will take the time to read what genuine inspiration is. Cheers!
