No thongs?

Say it ain’t so. This cannot be right (or good) for pirate thongs THONG sales have collapsed by nearly 20% in the past year, signalling a backlash against a symbol of “chav” culture.      Now, however, retail industry data indicate that sales nationally have fallen by 17% in one year.

Recess Appointments: Only Bush, huh?

Before the Kosbat and DU kids getting going to far, getting their talking points together, regarding President Bush’s possible recess appointment on John Bolton, let’s review. The US Constitution (that thing that the Lefties want to rewrite) states in Article II, Section 2: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may […]

Air Deadbeat now Con Air?

Hey, y’all. Jebediah here. Is Air America Deadbeat stealing federal funds that were meant for the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club?
