The member of parliament who supports every proposal for the strengthening this monopoly, is sure to acquire not only the reputation of understanding trade, but great popularity and influence with an order of men whose numbers and wealth render them of great importance.

To expect, indeed, that the freedom of trade should ever be entirely restored in Great Britain, is as absurd as to expect that an Oceana or Utopia should ever be established in it.
Not only the prejudices of the public, but what is much more unconquerable, the private interests of many individuals, irresistibly oppose it . . .

what new insane talking point did the left launch the other day based on [checks card] who's been staying at the Trump hotels?

That by paying for hotel rooms foreign leaders are BRIBING Trump & meeting with him in secret to START WARS.

The adult with the young boy tried to buy the veteran and his wife some dinner but they were only there for some ice cream. The veteran still wouldn't allow the man to buy him some ice cream, saying he was so impressed with the young man...

... and that it was so rare to see youngsters so respectful, not walking around with their pants falling down or being rude, saying "yes, sir." Instead the veteran bought dinner for the boy, his sister, and grandpa. Wouldn't take no for an answer.

Interesting how some still claim there are "moderates" in 's regime.

These "moderates" apparently can't tolerate restaurants.

This is the type of regime Obama negotiated with & former Obama admin officials are now advising.

The ugliest film I ever saw was "Pet Sematary."

Stephen King has made it clear that he hates kids--especially his own--but that film was unmatched in its hostility to children.

That's when I stopped reading him.

You know I'm not Catholic, and generally not an overtly religious man.

But sometimes I make exeptions for my friends.

"Trump came back to the country after giving an amazing speech in Normandy and a day later closed an agreement with Mexico to help protect the southern border.
In the meantime Dems were busy inviting psychiatrists to discuss Trump's mental health and asking for a pay raise."

@maxwhig @ThomasWic It's even more ridiculous than that. After a few years the subsidies for windmills expire. Then the windmills are torn down and new ones are build. Besides that these windmills kill a lot of birds and insects. It's crazy here ...

I never thought I'd see the day when the Speaker of the House gave a press conference while high on methamphetamine.

The glassy eyes, disordered speech, and dry mouth are the giveaways.
