  1. Now if he and other democrats will put America first, stand by the Constitution, halt illegal immigration, eradicate wasteful spending and corruption, I’d take him more seriously.
    Until then, he’s just another well paid attention whore.

  2. The home of Bobby Byrd.
    Joe’s on a tightrope.
    WVa has always been an enigma – a weird combination of free-shit and free-dom – with loyalties mostly to the clans. Fiercely patriotic and mired in corruption.

    He’ll say anything he thinks his constituents want to hear.

    izlamo delenda est …

  3. Ole Joe saw the 2016 vote count……

    now Ole Joe is in the save my job mode…..

    Trump45 needs to use him….not trust him……

    and back a strong opponent next time Ole Joe runs for re-election.

  4. The burning of the US flag is an ACT – an ACT of rebellious disrespect and damaging seditious behavior.

    I don’t perceive it as speech protected under the Constitution, just like I don’t see yelling “fire” in a theater as free speech.

    If actions have consequences, I think the payback for such an offense would be expressed as 2 years of MANDATORY military service in any branch deemed in need at the time.

    These progturds might actually benefit from the experience.

    “Put ’em up … Put ’em up! I’ll fight both of ya … I’ll fight ya with one hand tied behind my back … Put ’em up … Put ’em up!”

    “… of course I’ll cave to you Obama … want me to carry your golf clubs?”
