        The media was covering up and/or helping. The media was all in shilling to the public what they knew was a hoax, betting Mueller would find something, anything to make it true.
        They lost & they will never admit what they've done. Dare I say, #EnemyofthePeople?

      I fought for years to put Greg in a late night slot against the proggie “comedians” to give us an alternative. I mean, he was beating them in ratings on his old Red Eye show at 3 a.m. His Fox Sat night show beats them in the numbers too. I’m starting to hate Fox.

    stick ball, half ballplaying under an open fireplug in the summer all Philly things. My kids were lucky enough to play them all

    • helenk3 says:

      when we lived in Philly the kids were playing under the fire plug and this one boy had a wooden leg. He slipped and fell and had to go to the hospital. I went with him. I was in the waiting room waiting for his parents to arrive and the nurse came out and handed me his wooden leg to hold until the got there. I smoked at the time. Here I was with no money, no cigarettes holding a wooden leg. It seemed like a really long time for the parents to get there

      We played “strike out”
      Paint or draw a square on a wall, usually at a school.
      That would be the strike zone.
      Get a bat or a cut off broom stick.
      Rubber ball, two guys taking turns as the batter or pitcher.
      Hit the box 3 times and your out.

      • helenk3 says:

        In Philly they called that wall ball.

        wish the kids today could have the fun that kids used to have. In the square where we lived there were about 125 kids. They learned to get along and have fun There was a square in the middle where the kids could play and all the parents could see what was going on. The neighbors watched out for all the kids. There is a facebook page called Merritt Square and I swear the Picture from 1921 was taken from my porch. Kids there were little are now grown and parents

    Plan B: Mueller’s so incompetent that he missed all of Trump’s crimes, therefore Impeachment Hearings!

    • lyn says:

      Yep. You can’t win with the shit-for-brains Democrats.

      You should see the comments to the WaPoop story above. Trump and Barr hobbled Mueller. LOL.

    • Cisco says:

      The Dem’s new narrative is they/someone “got” to Muller.
      Of course Dem’s cannot say who they or someone is but the Dem’s just know.
      Just like the fake Russia collusion/conspiracy hoax.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I worry about that too. A “mistrial” or something, gotta start over, NEW investigations and crap like that.

      • lyn says:

        I think that’s why Trump is spiking the ball whenever he can, because Democrats called President Trump every name in the book.

  6. helenk3 says:

    love him too

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Is this Nancy’s dd ? First I heard of this “historical” trip.

    • Cisco says:

      Just grandstanding for the black voters.
      But the Dem’s will never get the Black Walk Aways.
      Tsk, tsk, tsk.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hope PDJT cancels the CodeL or whatever it’s called. Will save us millions. These people are supposed to be in their districts, working, during summer break, not on VayCay.

    • helenk3 says:

      If we get lucky they will not let them come back

    Is it just me or does the CNN guy look like a Conehead?

    Hoping dims have overplayed the race card. No one but Trump would take on Saint Cummings. No other rethug would/could. He wss untouchable. How many people trapped in poverty are looking around and asking what to dims do for us.
