    Ronan Farrow apparently outed Schneiderman. Trump called Schneiderman a crook 4 years ago. Good riddance to the NY AG! How long has Cuomo known about his AG’s behavior?

    and the next news you are going to hear on fox is that Iran has chemical weapons of mass destruction. The drumbeat for war is on your doorstep people. And that is what overturning this treaty was all about in the first place. trump and his lunatic friends want a war….a big big war with lots of noise and fury. But first, we will have a parade honoring all who will die in the next three years in the mid-east.

    Remember what ScumP said during the debates, we have to show our Military strength, we currently are well armed with weaponry, why don’t we use it. This was before he said we need to invest in our Military.

    On the Storm front. Was thinking, what rich wackos wouldn’tpay millions to have at it with Ms.Daniels? She did do the
    PRez after all.

    Heard the Walmart deal is officially DeAD.

      Israel will wait. They want us to do the dirty work….as does Saudi Arabia. they are both using Trump who is just being their useful idiot.

      I hope Steven Dean is draft age because it is time he sees the world. There are lessons he needs to learn about what happens when presidents (and others) shoot their mouths off.

      Speaking of paving things….Pittsfield is going to have a beautifully paved airport fit for a king….but when you get out of your plane and into your limo you might as well be riding on the moon.

      Cloverdale street has at least 8 holes big enough to snap the axle on a beer truck.

    The unofficial Mayor and City Councilor Gaetani will be making some, strides tonight at the cheesy City Council rap it up session until he has his day in Court. The most knowledgeable man on water and a lot of other things is in the trenches for the stupidos of the City who drink out of a jar.

      Most people seemed to be stoned in Denver when I spent a month there a few years ago.

      Young woman gets on the bus holding a pack of Marlboros and a large bottle of mouthwash, aquamarine flavor. She stands stupified in front of the driver.

      Man sez, “$1.50.”



      “Ah, I—dooon’t have it.”

      “Sorry, you need to get off.”

      And this was only at about 7 pm on a nice summer evening.

      Then there were the two tottering Mexican guys who needed a buck for the bus about 8:30 or so on a Sunday morning. Gave it to them.
