The Dade County School Board wants to raise the taxes on seniors. They feel they are entitled to the money of people over 65. In Dade County seniors over 65 can sign up for a property tax exemption for the house and five acres. This exemption has been in effect for 14 years. Now the board wants their money.

Trump is welcoming you back. No more if you aren’t for him you’re against him. You need only acquiesce to serial lying, narcissism, denigration of government service, and low character and intelligence with your continued silence. He recognizes he needs you like you need him.

Revisiting the ongoing story of 21 Savage: He came to the U.S. in 2005 at the age of 12. He’s been living here on an expired visa since 2006, when he was 13. According to his attorney, he applied for a U Visa in 2016, one set aside for victims of certain crimes “who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity.” ICE is currently holding him without bond – despite the fact he isn’t a flight risk and has not been charged with any… Read more »

Putting my money that this “human wall” is not only mentioned tonight, but becomes the policy of WH choice going forward. OK, I have no money. But if it’s a viable path to avoid govt shutdown, and involves manned outposts and tech, and not a human centipede, why not.

He will also learn I plan on taking him to a bar with a blues band afterwards.
