A nation of hypocritical preachers with the brains of pterodactyls and politicians who would sell their daughters for a vote. But I digress. Let me say a few words about our teflon President. He informed us that pollution is caused by trees. Many of us did not realize that. He told us that a Nicaraguan army could march from Managua to Harlingen, Texas, in two days. Yes, two days. Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico. Quite a march. And once across the Rio Grande, what would these Nicaraguan Communists do? Burn the Harlingen County Courthouse?
