As he should. The old boyeez network is way past it’s use by date. In mcconnels case “sell/buy” date is more appropriate.

$$$$$$$$ and lots of it.
Luv, luv, luv the new dam money.

” really a state of mind. “ and the boogie man lives rent free in their heads...
WE ARE AMERICA !!!!!
The left just doesn’t want to admit it; they’re scared to death of us .. along with Cruz, and Lee, AND THEY SHOULD BE.
Like Robert Byrd in WV.
