  3. Basement Biden is hiding from America. That says it all about this mental capacity. He's a puppet being led around by devious puppet masters. He didn't win the election. Nearly 20% of Demoncraps believe it was rigged to help him win.

  12. WSJ confirms their own perfidy. We knew they were an establishment Neocon rag before Trump ever became president. Like all dead tree media, they are not the paper they used to be.

    I didn't know any houses along Vivion Road had anything worth stealing.

  14. Sad theft story. Someone stole a 500 pound safe? Wouldnt it be easier to "crack the combination and open the door? 500lbs of steel could kill a person if it fell on them. The lesson is keep anything valuable in a bank safety deposit box, or several, at different banks in different locations. Thats what I do. And I keep a large safe at my house partly filled with just old bricks, and broke the lock so picking wont open it. So someone can steal the safe, take it and cut it open to find just bricks. The joke would be on them!

  15. And yet we all know that safe is there to hold your Airstream in place when a tornado hits your trailer park. Weird.

  16. ^^ If you keep playing your cards right you'll eventually be able to move from your mom's basement into a trailer. Keep up the good work!

  17. Having a safe filled with heavy objects in plain sight is the oldest trick in the books. Thieves take just it, and then hustle out the door. Leave everything else. But most thieves are so stupid they fall for the ploy and never look anywhere else in the house for stuff. And place a folder of modern penny coins in a coin collectors book, or just 1 ounce of silver, on top of the safe to make them think there is more inside. Leave a note inside the safe stating they were on camera and that they will soon be arrested.

    Have you heard the lastest q-anon theory? That "Q" is actually JFK, yes, Kennedy? Now he would be 103 years old right now. But the Q fans never think to check on his birthdate. They believe anything! How silly
