    Don't believe in karma, but I do believe in the wrath of the Lord.

    Sad to hear the truck driver died.

    If any of those folks were black, the nut jobs will be claiming it was the ghost of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

    Before the crane went to Houston, I read the crew was having trouble understanding the 19th century anchoring system, and how to unfasten it.

    Why have all of a sudden these statues become so offensive? Weren't they just as "offensive" during the last administration?

    This country gets nuttier every day.

    I believe there's a correlation between the two when men turning into woman and bull dike woman turning into men became not just accepted but the right thing to do, amongst so many other things.

    In other words the vast majority of this Country, men and woman alike, are pansy assed backwards mental patients.

    Yep, staring down at snowflakes is somehow a free speech violation.
