Sunday morning open thread

Life in my house is never boring.

I crave boredom.

Have fun with this open thread until a boring window of time opens up in the chaos swirling around me, giving me a chance to read and write a bit.

    People like Sherrod got that money, I bet, Sadie. The “dead people” is their excuse to disappear the funds.
     
    It’s how people like Ayers, enemy of private property, has his own mansion.

    To elaborate, I’m referring to Sherrod’s farm that she worked using slave wage labor. She collected some kind of federal relief to poor farmers, when in fact her farm didn’t qualify.

    This is how these cockroaches breed. They use our food, poison it, and grow at the expense of our stockpiles. While we starve in the dead of winter, too weak to resist their invasion, they are get fat off the largesse of their victims.

    Sherrod is a plantation pimp. The Sherrods, the Sharptons – the former out of the city and the latter within city limits – bottom line, this ilk are cut from the same cloth.
