In Bold Red Letters

WARNING: Voting for a Republican may be hazardous to your health. That is the warning label I have called for on ballots. Today I’m calling for it to be printed in bold red letters. Let me explain why.

The number is also much higher than 47 but to fit my scenario only American males could reasonably be counted. Continue reading The Trump Infrastructure Program

Let’s explore. Continue reading Before Coffee Break
