How the hell does Demi get all that grotesque blubber submerged?

"pipes in KCMO cover more area than other major cities combined"

So, is that an excuse for not keeping those piper serviceable.

Apparently, instead, we need to sink more taxpayer bucks into empty (shiny) hotels, a new non-used airport, a non used toy train and millions (more) invested in 18th and Vine where no non-BLM person of sound mind would be caught (shot), even in daylight, and of course Power & Light.

Street, sewer and water line work is not glamorous and will not get our civic leaders into the national spotlight.

We need shiny stuff. Maybe an NBA felon team, or a downtown baseball scam to reward certain construction firms. You know, really neat stuff like that.

The guy spends 118 days in the hospital because of COVID and no one in his group is wearing a mask?????? Does anyone see a problem here?

Anonymous said...

Rheumatoid arthritis and Parkinson's disease two things you're never cure from so 118 days being sick was more to do with what was wrong with him to begin with. Sounds like him and his wife both live unclean lives if they both tested positive for it. Some time after more than enough warnings had been in place to educate people.

Caption Guy is vastly underappreciated around this dungheap.

He consistently casts pearls before the feral swine with a yeoman's effort.

Instead of believing Foxnews story go on line and read the letter that was sent to Biden by GSA.

If the idiot Dems keep locking everyone down we're all going to look like the Mt. Vesuvius victims which is just how they'd like it.

The top pic is probably my fault. I busted Tony's chops the other day for posting pictures of manatees in swimsuits. Damn if he didn't do exactly that.
