Nothing New Under the Sun

It is so very tempting to talk about the news of the last seven days starting with Charlottesville but I will not.  The train to Crazytown has left the station and either you got on board or you didn’t.  Those of us that refused to get on board can read the handwriting on the wall, easily,  without the “help” of social media or the main stream news.  Plan accordingly.

No F’n way, right?  You ain’t even   drinkin’ that stuff dude. Just look at the crud on that filter!
