I say it here. Comes out there. Just take your seats. Class is about ready to start. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/386854-trump-threatens-to-remove-news-networks-press-credentials-over Noway2016 2 years ago Success after success after success! Watch The Great Man work! https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/09/trump-secretary-of-state-pompeo-heading-back-from-north-korea-with-3-released-prisoners.html Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 Hysterical! CNN stuck with Stormy Daniels’ lawyer instead of covering the hostage story! Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 So, will you watch Trump live at 2 am or just DVR it? Benevolus 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 That’s good of him, since two of them were detained last year likely because Trump was harassing N.K. at the time, and presumably just for this moment, so N.K. can look good ahead of any possible negotiations to come. The third guy may actually be a spy, or maybe a Christian (frowned upon in N.K.), or both. One wonders what N.K. got in return. Noway2016 2 years ago Imitation, even lame imitation, I guess, is the sincerest form of flattery! Noway2016 2 years ago So, who’s the favorite, Kamala, Biden or Warren for the Dems in 2020? Noway2016 2 years ago Or sending them billions on pallets for some payoff! Benevolus 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 It. Was. Their. Own. Money. Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Benevolus Sure! The Iranians had pallets of cash sitting in some warehouse in 1979!! Lol!!! Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 Yes. In account. Not in cash form. The pallets were a separate payoff by Lurch anf Obama! Benevolus 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 What are the Iranians going to do with more pallets? I just cut up a bunch of pallets with my chainsaw. If I had known they were worth enough to pay off somebody I would have saved them. Seriously though, are you saying the money is still in the US bank? Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 No. They got their old bank account cash back. Plus thr pallets of bribe cash. chamblee54 2 years ago https://www.theroot.com/when-white-politicians-profit-off-black-pain-and-then-g-1825823106 Here is another story about Stacey and Stacey. Noway2016 2 years ago Little girl attacked by MAN in women’s restroom! Who, I say, who could have predicted that?!?!?!?!?! PC crap out of control!! https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cbs46.com/story/38145424/police-child-attacked-in-womens-restroom-at-town-center-mall Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 Why don’t you head to the lockup, Sniv, and offer your legal services, pro-bono, of course, to the piece of shit who held the knife against the girl’s throat? After all, he could have just been feeling like a girl yesterday. People said this would make it eadier for molesters to emter a ladies room unchallenged and damned if they weren’t right! Noway2016 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 Andrew. Please go show this response to your wife and any other female family members, too. Show them your PC mindset in defending a knife weilding man, who had entered a woman’s restroon unchallenged and put that knife against the throat of an 11 year old little girl. Get back to all of the people who read this blog with their prideful response. Ellynn 2 years ago Reply to Noway2016 Had a high school classmate followed in to a women’s restroom and killed right before the Holidays. By a women. The idea that a restroom can keep any one from being harmed is as silly as thinking a person in any type of confined dead-end space with ready made hiding spaces would be safe.

Always try to support it when I see it anywhere on draft. Totally scientific Georgia Beer Rankings: 1. Scofflaw 2. Creature Comforts 3. Wild Heaven 4. Terrapin (Wake n Bake is the GOAT) 5. Southbound Sweetwater doesn’t need the ranking cause they’re ubiquitous and serve as our Georgia beer ambassadors/educators but shout-out nonetheless. If it weren’t for them, you wouldn’t have CC or Southbound. Is it 5 o’clock yet? Jack Fitz 2 years ago Reply to Jack Fitz Wake n Bake is always at Hop City so I inevitably buy it and have it in the beer fridge. The best. Benevolus 2 years ago Reply to Ellynn I’m no beer connoisseur but one of my favorite things to do on the whole planet is a Tybee Island Blonde (Coastal Empire Brewery) with the fried shrimp and hush puppies at Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp on Tybee. 38 more days and I’ll be doing it again… mmmm.

Perfect choice for the NRA, and a fitting Trump supporter.
