it’s a jungle out there

…no, really, it is! When Rhett Butler left Scarlett O’Hara, he told her he was… “…going back to Charleston. Where I belong.” When I moved to Charleston in 1991, I was coming back to the South, where I belong. I’d been too long away from the blackwater swamps and spartina grass.

now we know

why they wanted to deny her freedom to run again @RepMTG: “Because our government is completely corrupt, and I don’t say that lightly. It is a serious problem, and my eyes have been open to it actually, serving in Congress.”Apple:— Lisa Boothe (@LisaMarieBoothe)

If you are late to class, you may have missed the introduction of the WEF SCRIPT for total submission. There’s no real class. Just a script, in fact. Do WHAT WE SAY. That’s it.

By the middle of February 2020, the first cruise ship had been… Continue reading is it Groundhog Day?
