Does everybody remember the 1% for art rule the city forces on every city project? One percent of 1.5 billion is 15 million dollars, that’s insane and stupid, but nobody said the boy blunder and city clowncil were smart. Maybe Stacy Shaw should put tents up at the airport and protest for that money? Just a thought.

Some artist is gonna get rich off of this scam.

12:14 it’s kinda like the biden Ukraine deal, hiden joe biden gives 1.8 billion dollars of taxpayer money to Ukraine and then portions of that money are funneled back to the biden family and friends through various no show or no previous experience jobs. Same thing will happen at the airport as any other city project.... a little for you, a little more for me.

Don’t forget that sLIE bought a million dollar loft after he got out of office.....

"Trump on if Biden wins: 'Maybe I'll have to leave the country'"

That might be the only way he can escape jail. Maybe Biden won't have him extradited. Maybe Putin will grant him amnesty--or maybe he can find an Ecuadoran embassy somewhere that will keep him in hamburgers and French fries for the rest of his miserable life. At any rate, he'll FINALLY do his part to make America great again.

That women on the left of Jim Crow Joe has a transgender little girl who is only 8 years old she wanted to know what Jim Crow Joe thought of that because her 10 year old wants to do it, and he said it was O.K.
