Aspects, Midpoints, & Circles of Position

I think I've finally figured out why I can't tell the difference between a planet square a midpoint and the conjunction-opposition contact usually called a direct midpoint. To me, they seem the same in effect - and I just realized that there is a mathematical reason that they are identical. But firs...

Got it. (Wouldn't wanna get rid of Mercury, Uranus & Moon anyway—not entirely.)

Technically true, but not really related to the impeachment. It's that those retirement benefits are always at the discretion of Congress and are separately voted on by Congress for each president they can give him a pass on impeacent and still vote him no pension etc.
