blues and browns

this is fascinating, truly. the very same tactics to suppress black folk from voting when they were made citizens, are nearly identical to ways the modern left aims to strip elders of their voting rights. imagine being so arrogant that you want to force elders to test for their right to vote.

Hello from NW Wisconsin! Dogs will usually not learn to stay away from porcupines, and some get "quilled" over and over. While at the vet to have quills removed from the face, neck, and interior of our dog's mouth, our vet mentioned that he removed quills from one dog's mouth five times. He saw the owner of that dog while out and about a few months after the last episode and mentioned that he had not seen that dog in his vet clinic for a while. "He must have finally learned his lesson!" The owner replied "That's because he was killed while chasing a car."

RBG was a horrible person. Stop glamorizing someone who is responsible for hundreds of thousands of innocent, helpless baby deaths. Vote Trump 2020 and insure another Supreme Court Justice.

Trump easily won the electoral college and will do so again in 2020! Democrats lost, so they want to get rid of it. Keep America Great and vote President Trump in 2020!
