MY BEER GUY GOT SICK SO BREWSDAY TUESDAY HAS BECOME WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS TUESDAY so here we go with political nonsense.
MOTIVE SHOULD MATTER, AS IT DID FOR HILLARY Remember when James Comey said Hillary Clinton, who put classified information on an unsecure server, didn't MEAN to break the law so she shouldn't be held accountable? One Senator is now saying that Trump's motive in asking for Ukrainian help investigating Hunter Biden's role with an oil and gas company matters.

He's 100% right about this.

GOOD GRIEF UK STUDENTS ARE DUMB And they match their US counterparts on college campuses who don't support free speech. This is the end. The communists have won. Students are advocating for limits on what they can say, safe spaces and banning speakers they disagree with. We're toast.
