I was watching The Carol Burnett show last night and caught this gem about how not to offend anyone with a comedy sketch... 😂

My dad and I have been working on making cutting boards. It's just a little side job we’re hoping brings in a few bucks here and there. So, I'm asking if anyone would pay $100 for one of these? It's made of maple, oak, and walnut. Breadboards are 100% walnut but sell for less.

So, one of my passions is writing. Fiction. I've had a book idea swimming in my head and another I finished but need to edit.

I thought the best way to get the creative juices flowing was to write a few short stories.

I've put a few of them up on a WordPress blog and I thought I'd share.

I'll update it every time I write a new one. Which I'm trying to do daily via a sentence generator.

And hopefully that'll get me into writing a bigger story again!

First off, I typed this up before I just wrote it. I didn't want to miss anything, so it'll get it tooted out pretty quickly. Anyway:

Many were sharing their stories about drugs, etc. I only mentioned my brother was an addict and the drugs took his life. I thought I’d share the whole story.

First off, this December will be 16 years since my brother died. He was 27.

(Update: It will now be 17 years this December.)

So, I've been doing martial arts since I was 8. I started in Tae Kwon Do, but made it all the way to Brown Sr., one step away from black belt. But the school didn't do me any favors. They never told me in order to test for black, I had to know all the previous belt levels. I became fustrated and left. I was probably 12/13 years old.

We moved to another part of Maryland and I started up with another school. Again, I got one step before black belt when my social anxiety hit.

I recall when Trump met with Comey, it circulated that the President asked him if he was loyal.

Pres. Trump forgot to ask Wray that question. 😁

This is the historical chart, which shows how much the current method of calculating CPI has diverged from the "basket of goods" approach that was used in 1980. If you want to compare current conditions to the late 70s stagflation-recession era, it's useful to have a common methodology.

WTF?
It's happening folks.

The IRS is hiring new special agents!

Requirements include working min “50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends” and “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”

Trump needs to immediately get all the security footage of the FBI in his home and make it public. Cut it into ads. Let people see Joe Biden’s KGB coming after a President.

A simple example: FBI gets warrant to search for drugs and evidence related to drug dealing (ledger books etc) and finds a gun and books showing illegal gambling, that all comes in even though warrant was for drugs/drug ledger.

My gut though is that the warrant was specifically for the classified info b/c that would be easier to "get" than some bizzaro Jan 6 crime.

And here, this is key, as a matter of law, once they get the items "lawfully" if they find "evidence of another crime" it is admissible. So, FBI could get a warrant for classified info & then "find" (not plant, but find in looking for what they claimed they were) "evidence" of whatever crime they pretend he committed and use that evidence. So, 100% that this was not about the classified EVEN If the warrant was to search for the classified.

if they don't have a copy. I can't imagine it did not say either classified documents or related to election--two totally separate things! BUT, and I haven't made this point yet, they can seize anything that the items could be located in, and those items seized would be identical for both. Boxes, files, etc. (One thing I'd like clarity on is did they take electronics? The classified could be scanned/emailed etc.).

Margot Cleveland:
THREAD: This is spot on by @megynkelly. I haven't dug into why they did the raid, merely noting that it was floated as based on classified documents. A couple thoughts here: The search warrant would state what they were searching for, and Trump's folks saw the warrant
