    “A Sadly Misguided Vet”

    I fell bad for the disabled Iraq vet who displayed a masked Obama with a noose in his front yard. But, like so many Amurkins, he seems sadly misinformed. Who concocted the hideously unnecessary Iraq war? Cheney, Bush, and their neo-con henchmen. Obama was against it from the start and is bringing us out of it. The vet needs to hang Cheney, Bush, and their ilk instead.

    Hey guys, no one is mentioning that this is going into the river and down river Westpoint is drinking it. It can contaminate their entire water supply. Could this be why Westpoint is now evacuating? What about all the barge and river traffic…has that been stopped as well?

    One other thing about the tax commission and Jerry’s comments……I hope to goodness that him and his bootlickers stay away from big picture problems like tax reform. We’re still paying in Louisville for all his crazy ass ideas. Just stay in the down lo Jerry!
