Rush went through at least 25 quotes from other people of both parties saying the same thing about the Ponzi scheme that is Social Security. Another one of my pet peeves is when people mispronounce “social” when they put those two words together.

She’s on against Juan on O’reilly. Not sure where else she’s been, she’s a cute 20 something. Have known of her for years but can’t recall specifically from what.

I guess I missed his debut, huh? I was thinking Sept 14 or 15, for some reason. I intend to sign up, but I’m not really in my normal pattern here.

Two agencies have sent staffed ambulances to cover our district to give us a much needed break. It is awesome to hear them on the radio. I know I am trying to relax and shed the stress, I am sure those that did much more than me and lost their homes on top of it appreciate it even more than me.

Can anyone tell me what’s cooler than being cool?

Having historians build up your character and accomplishments, while glossing over your shortcomings after you've died (ie JFK)?? A rather beguiling idea.

A+++ Chrissy fatpantload Matthews is apparently writing a book about JFK so there’s sure to be more of that glossing.
