Patrick Mahomes has been the worst thing that has ever happened to our city. Wondering why his girlfriend can't see the hate, division, and racism this guy has brought to our city and nationwide. Hey Patrick don't forget it's the white people who pay your grossly over rated salary too. Racist Prick

At the rate Mahomes is throwing his money away on bad bets and after his "partner" gets her settlement and child care in a few years, he'll be working at McDonald's by the time he's fifty years old.
Spending a few dollars on a decent financial advisor would really be a good idea.

Diaper Joe Biden is going to bankrupt the United States.

The old corrupt coot has no idea what he is signing when they place Executive Orders in front of him drafted by the Obama team.

But I thought Hillary just gave Biden two thumbs up for his job? So which is it.

Did you know that Emanuel Cleaver worships the Hindu god brahma? He lifted brahma up in prayer at the capitol building he calls a temple. He also blasphemed God when he said Amen and awoman. Cleaver is evil.

Hate to say it, but Chiefs will finish 2nd in the Western Conference this year.

Defenses now know how to contain Patty Cakes. Tampa Bay and Las Vegas have the game plan for it and showed the rest of the league.

Watkins, Wilson, and Williams to free agency further weakens the team.

Running game is much less than when Kareem Hunt was in the backfield.

Draft picks look ho hum. Bolton may be a player at LB.

Andy will be distracted with son's DUI trial.

Patty Cakes will get hurt again.

Nice three year run however 2018 - 2020

And when Biden wants Hillary's opinion, I'm sure he'll ask for it.

As a white tired of being called a racist that sees a change in how many blacks act. I for one avoid them as business owners and even employees. Do practically all my shopping in the suburbs. No fast food or restaurants unless in the suburbs too. Sorry ya all woke yourselves out of this customer.

TOP PHOTO -- CHICKEN RANCH COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO

When I complimented Miss Billie on her breasts and legs, she returned the favor saying I had a long hiatus!!!

I have to ask, as a solid 3 myself: Is the chick at the top really a millennial sex idol? Seriously? We had Jennifer Aniston, even crazy ass Angelina Jolie, the vampire fighting chick, all of whom look worlds hotter than this chick. The standards of Millie and his ilk are hard to wrap my mind around. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, she's a pretty average looking gal, but isn't the point of a sex idol something more than your run of the mill gals?
