Re: “How Smugglers Will Circumvent Trump's Wall

I heard today from an archeologist friend of mine, that some Missouri gravediggers just found a buried trunk full of musty historical books, some deteriorating old button top shoes, a tattered 19th century wedding dress, and surprisingly, a heretofore unknown Samuel Clemens manuscript, entitled "When Your Allusions are Illusions, It's Time To Stop Drinking".

I was about to impose upon him with a request for the address of the academics working on the text of that manuscript, when I realized that I had already been reading its modern equivalent in the Memphis Flyer over the last few days.

So I'm taking a break from electronic media for a spell, and limiting my exposure to the printed word. I've decided to reread a dog-eared paperback edition of "The Mysterious Stranger" in Mr. Clemens' honor, and leave the lot of you here to your own devices. I've kept it around since high school, mainly because it has notes about some of the more poignant passages in the margins, and it reminds me of my more naive and youthful self.

I'll be back later.

Good luck.

Awesome bi-partison effort "for The People"! Maybe you two legislators could be a model for other bifurcated, logersheaded stalemates that prevent good government from happening!

I understand. You guys go drink some coffee. After all, Flynn was hired by Obama three times and is a registered democrat.

It's got to feel bad that he is OUT.

Then I will go work on a paper as to the Execution of 38 Dakota Indians by the Lincoln administration.

Re: “How Smugglers Will Circumvent Trump's Wall

That isn't entirely true, Mia. I'm sure of that.

Then I will do some research on the over 30,000 civilians that Lincoln had arrested.

Re: “Police Focus of State of City Address

The bigger question is how do we pay for the additional safety services? The MPD's union boss is on the record suggesting several (mostly illegal) means, all but one of which involved increasing the local tax burden.

Re: “Corker Describes Trump as a "Wrecking Ball"

Wow, thats the most disgusting scene Ive heard described since Fulliloves last pole dancing incident.
Building walls and wrecking balls. Does anyone else find our foreign and domestic policy a little off-kilter?

This is why I would have voted Miley Cyrus for President, if given the opportunity.
Can we get a do-over?

It looks like he's moving in for a kiss. Trudeau may be a French-Canadian, but they too have boundaries.

Bric-a-Brat, too busy to learn that US Senators are permitted to meet with foreign governments but not demi-toadies of big toads who are un-sworn, so called businessmen who are candidates elect?

Re: “How Smugglers Will Circumvent Trump's Wall

Next, I will look at how many closed door meetings BHO had with the leaders of other countries while he was a sitting senator running for President for the first time. (I'm a busy guy.)

@Nigh, if they were liberal, Garland would be on the Supreme Court.
