Chicago is short over a billion dollars thanks to coronavirus fear-mongering; school system also has massive budget gap

Back in May, I published A theory about state and local government finances.

Our local Publix decides social distancing is not worth it

Never forget: As cities burned, Biden/Harris shilled for bail funds

Those internal polling numbers must be brutal, because the Biden campaign is whipping the old nutter out of the basement finally to condemn violence and rioting.

All the lies that have been told about Jacob Blake and incited riots
