(I can neither confirm or deny that; even if I could, I couldn't - it's classified.)
My dad’s second wife’s youngest son died the same way more than thirty years ago. He was on a hang glider, being towed by a car, and ran into some power lines.
He was dead before he hit the ground.

Nope. Some of us are still here, fighting the good fight against liberal insanity.
But given the outcome of the last election, it’s only a matter of time before we wind up our affairs and escape.
