Looking through my archive of photos I find this gem that all of Donald Trump’s cultists think I’m under some obligation to forgive or forget: Right there in black and white. Donald Trump willfully and deliberately plastered his name all over these guidelines… Well, if … Continue readingDonald Trump is Disqualified
I haven’t written about lockdowns, mandates, and the police state for a while, so you might get the impression I’ve moved on, or forgiven and forgotten like the vast majority of even “dissidents” seem to have; well, if that’s the case you couldn’t be more … Continue readingJustice for Lockdown
