Drought Map for Dec. 27th 2018

let’s build that wall – yesterday!

2,000 miles of wall would require a greeter every 20 feet – three shifts !! +/- 3 Million jobs, just for starters !!! a payroll of billions n billions just for the greeters… then add the brigades on brigades of social workers, employment specialists, doctors, nurses, public health counselors, housing facilitators, union organizers, transport workers, bus drivers, English teachers… why, my dog, it’d be greatest bonanza ebber!!

Merry Christmas

from now, the days get longer
