From the “americanthinker”: The moral arc of Washington: 1. Idealism 2. Pragmatism 3. Ambition, and 4. Corruption. Once they compromise, they get cooperation. After learning the ropes, they get good at it. Then they start playing for keeps (ambition). Have you ever noticed how many people leave a job making $90k a year to do a few stints in Washington making six digits as a public servant, only to retire as a multimillionaire? Weird.

Suddenly owning a firearm or being able to call the police doesn’t seem such a fascist event.

This is the principal difference between a dog and man (or woman).”
Bird cage liner report: The Honolulu Star-Advertiser is reporting 186 business’ have closed their door permanently due to the Covid-19 “shelter in place”. I think that number will be multiplied by 3 or 4 by the time it all ends. Let’s wait and see who buys them and re-opens them.
