Developing . . .


  1. Trump's "case" is being thrown out of court all over the nation.

    Don't equivocate. He's a sore loser. He will be out of the white house soon.

    1. Biden may eventually be president
      But right now there are still legal questions to be answered
      I can’t see how Biden, after declaring himself, the winner, wouldn’t want an accurate count to show everyone that he won fairly
      Besides, it looks as though trump is simply trying to keep Biden from getting 270 electoral votes which would put the election to the House of Representatives. Once there, it is up to the 50 states delegations to decide to winner. And the GOP controls most of the legislatures. So guess how that will turn out
      Personally, the only thing that points to massive fraud, is that trump won about ten million more votes than in 2016 and he gained house seats
      Biden wins more than ten million more votes than Hillary did in 2016 and lost house seats and didn’t pick up any legislatures or governorships
      Now just how can that be even remotely possible?
      I’ve never heard of a party winning the president and losing house seats? That is why I’m sceptical

  2. ^^^^^^@9:29

    No it's not commie moron it's the liberal judges in the lower courts, and that's to be expected from you china commies. Trump won the election by a huge amount and that has been proven. The commies in WI are so scared they are now trying to change the re counting laws. This goes on to the supreme court next idiot.

  3. Now we know what 200 lbs of sausage looks like in a 30 lb sequin casing. 😏

    Any chance we can got something other than a Ball Park Frank for a hottie?


  4. KC wants more COVID tests?????? You can buy them online at Costco. Dumb asses.

  5. KCMO wants FREE COVID tests (read "at taxpayer expense"). KCMO is dead ass broke.. Good luck with that freeloaders!

  6. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  7. That would make Nasty Pelosi's skin melt.

    This comment has been replaced by a blog administrator irritator. 😏🍿

  8. 9:36 now that’s funny right there!

  9. RE: Kansas City COVID Tests Spike

    The governmental reaction to this virus has got to be one of the biggest BOONDOGGLES in decades.

    The coronavirus only kills approximately 1% of those exposed to it, and nearly all of the deaths are in the 80-85+ age group who are living in care facilities. These are people who are already typically frail and in declining health, with other health conditions impacting their lifespan.

    Seasonal influenza that occurs every year in this country, claims a similar number of primarily older Americans who are susceptible to the risk.

    Why in the world have public schools been closed? Young people do NOT die from coronavirus. However, when you pull them out of school, their intellectual/social/emotional progress is drastically retarded. In Kansas, the actions of Governor Kelly and KDHE director Norman are crimes against humanity. They've known better from the beginning, but voluntarily chose to subject Kansas residents to a torture protocol.

    Similarly, in KCMO, Mayor Lucas and KC Health director Archer are the Dumb and Dumber characters come-to-life. Two willful incompetents, continuing to draw their taxpayer salaries in full throughout the year, imposing non-scientific draconian restrictions upon those they've sworn to serve. Traitors.

    The person who invented the PCR testing process (1984-Kary Mullis) specifically said that it should NOT be used as a diagnostic clinical tool. All the regional labs (to my knowledge) that are doing the coronavirus testing are performing the procedure in a manner which is NOT recommended by research virologists/immunologists. An extremely large percentage of people tested are being informed that they tested positive, when in fact, they do not have active virus in their system and are thus incapable of transmitting it to others.

    Fear is a potent weapon to control people. It is a favorite tactic employed by those who seek to impose their will upon a public, that under normal circumstances, would quickly reject the overture.

  10. ^^Misinformation is better.

    It worked on you.


  11. Dolly Parton's parents were impovrerished sharecroppers..

    yet she went on to fame , fortune, and awesome generosity..

    without relying on Democrat Affirmative Action scams..

  12. everywhere, yep, low airpressure and losing steam.

  13. The definition of hottie seems to have suffered gross expansion.
