Huh. I thought he needed a “clean CR” for this.
I hope the Cowboy Poetry Festival will be funded again!
and here I was calling them 24/7 to pass the “National Tic Tac Toe Awareness Week”..
If we didn’t have a federal government we would have had to muddle through without a National Chess Week.
Harry doesn’t care about kids with cancer but national chess week is A-OK.
Hmmm, promotes critical thinking and problem solving. Harry’s game must be checkers and Obama told Harry to ‘king me’!
I only the 1st five words, then my heart sank. LOL
I got excited for a minute when I read “Harry Reid passed”.
guess this proves democrats don’t play chess.
they jump right on passing things they have no comprehension of
The game does contain a King.
Harry did this knowing that his Las Vegas Union voters would think it is about the “Chess Club.”
That topless place just off the strip.
Worthless as teats on a bull.
or honor to zer0’s hero putin
Better be careful there, Harry; you're playing with fire. Anybody with critical thinking and problem-solving skills knows your party is leading the country at breakneck speed to insolvency, total societal collapse, tyranny, and dystopia.
Lucky for you that K-12 and the Academy has been taken over by radical communists and useful idiots over the past 60 years which destroyed honest critical thinking. So you can carry on with your plans to irrevocably smash Western Civilization to bits.
How would society even function if Al Gore hadn’t invented chess?
I was ready to stop right there...

3 Q-KR5 mate
Scholar's Mate is usually presented as a fujk-up by the White player, but in the current state of the goobermint, I think we can easily agree that, this time, it's a fujk-up by the Kenyan player.
