I read about today’s socialist paradise in a book one time

…President Nicolás Maduro signed a decree at the end of last week that gives powers to the labor ministry to order “all workers from the public and private sector with enough physical capabilities and technical know-how” to join a government drive aimed at increasing food production

Nope, not criticizing Bubba. If I’d'a watched ‘er, I’d'a fallen asleep, too. Well, either that or broken a molar.
Besides, I was out in the shop building a 1911 from a box’a parts bought from a guy with a wife-vs-toy issue.
Can’t have too many 1911s.
Can have too much of H>.



Thursday, following on two of the best public speakers in history — in terms of delivery, not content — H> spoke:

…If the gushing [MSM] praise wasn’t enough, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley hyped in a terrible, pro-Hillary quip that “[t]here was one moment when she mentioned Trump and stared into the camera with a look so menacing it probably stirred Trump’s Secret Service detail.”

One moment” ?!?

FYI: Chelsea’s speech here

at least she waived that $300K fee…

Want a balloon?

have you heard the one about the Constitutional scholar…

…Supported by President Obama, the IRS should declare Trump’s tax audit settled. The benefit of preventing him from further politicizing the tax agency would far outweigh collecting however many millions of dollars he may have shorted the U.S. …

In the meantime, don’t expect Trump to be moved by offers of charitable donations. For one thing, he’s not moved by them anyway.


not so great balls a’ fire

Quick ! Somebody stamp him out!
