Asking for it?

I was walking with my girls yesterday. It was a nice day, so we thought we would take advantage. At one point a couple of ladies were walking towards us. One of them looked me up and down and then in a leering voice said “morning” the entire time staring at my crotch.  My daughter […]

Madness ending

As the clock ticks down on the tangerine tosspot’s final day in office, we can all look forward to an end to the madness. Of course he will still be ranting as much as he is able about how the election was stolen from him. But this time he will be shouting into the wind. […]
