LindaG – I always appreciate your comments
Certainly the parking ticket count. UN diplomats enjoy diplomatic immunity from prosecution for any and all crimes up to and including murder — and of course, espionage. They park where they want and when they want. They’re cited and throw the tickets in the trash. Whether the parking ticket debt is up to $2 billion is unknown
I spend quite a bit of time on the phone with people in China and you’re spot on. They are not panicking yet, but they are very concerned. 10 on a 10 scale concerned. And while they could have stuffed the genie back in the bottle months ago, it’s out now and they know it. They waited around hoping that ‘freedom would grow old’ for the people of Hong Kong and it didn’t. Unlike the rest of mainland China, Hong Kong was free until 1997, and even after that enjoyed much more freedom than the rest of China does. The Chicoms worry that this freedom disease will spread. They blame the CIA, but freedom has a perfume all its own.
Jim – I wouldn’t fold up and throw away a perfectly good UN flag. Cut it into pieces and use it as rags.

And great wadding for muzzle loading weapons
Barack always favored Iran. There was a warm place in his hart for the Imam. Valerie Jarrett stoked the fires of love for the Persian Empire. And things changed because President Trump honors the US relationship with Israel and has no use for the scum who run the Iranian “theocracy”.
PS Ed – The downside of living in the precise middle of nowhere is the annoying paucity of bandwidth.
Yes, maybe. We give them US$2 billion and they party with it in NYC?
Sources state that the Chinese have stopped expanding the islands. I expect that their budget crunch is telling. They are hoping some fool like Beto, Castro, or Bernie is elected and we become fellow communists.
Yes, we could build a lot of big, beautiful wall for $2 billion. And big, beautiful detention camps for illegal aliens. The EU is packed with illuminati from Old Europe and the UN is packed full of people living on the American dime from S-Hole countries. Frankly I don’t know which is worse, but they’d be right at home in San Francisco. You have to dodge piles of poop on the street in Freetown or Calcutta just like you do in San Francisco.
Bentonville, AR – In a bold move intended to curb the thousands of highway deaths each and every day, Walmart has decided to stop selling auto parts, sources confirmed, Tuesday.
