For the most transparent administration ever..... we are now entering Chavez country...hold onto your hats boys and girls.

We were going to go on vacation that week, but rental rates drop 30% the following week. We’ll just have to try to avoid going into Mecklenburg County for the duration of the DNC, except maybe to the Cathedral to pray that the Democrats don’t succeed in destroying our country.
Theyll be among the estimated 35,000...
The Republican Convention is expecting around 70,000.
