I've often been asked, "What do you old folks do now that you're retired?"

Well, I stay active and happy I'm fortunate to have a PHD in chemical engineering and one of the things I enjoy most is converting Beer, whiskey, and Scotch into urine.

Then, I take a jog out to the shed and piss on pictures of Maxine Waters,
Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, AOC, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Diane Feinstein. The best part is that the Millennials pay me to do it!

TALK ABOUT A BOMBSHELL!

Pete Mundo (suburban KS resident) criticizes KC Star editorialists (suburban KS and/or non-KCMO residents) for their critique of new KC City Manager.

This is the same Pete Mundo who has liberal KCMO Mayor Lucas on his radio show every week to spout nonsense from the party of Biden/Harris/Pelosi/Schumer/AOC/Cuomo/Newsom. Why does Mundo kiss Lucas' ass? Because it's all about self-promotion and climbing your way toward a bigger radio market. You cozy up to whoever holds the current position, political parties are irrelevant, it's about keeping yourself in the center of the vortex and riding the wave to a bigger paycheck.

Pete is okay, sorry he won't be as bitter as you. He probably knows there is no market for it. Your bombshell is a dud.
