The body in the box

Last edited Fri Jul 16, 2021, 10:24 AM - Edit history (1)

A man has a newsstand selling newspapers and magazines. Every day a gentleman walks up and buys the daily paper, looks at the front page and throws in the trash can. Finally after this goes on for a long time the man ask "why he buys it and throws it away".
The gentleman responds "for the obits".
Looking puzzled he says "but obituaries are in the back."
The gentleman calls back "this one will be on the front page."

I'm waiting for the body in the box picture too, could be soon.

Simply because jailing him would tarnish the office of the Presidency?

That happened the day that turd walked into the Oval Office.

We would never do it. We need to make sure we don't elect crazy people. All the symptoms were there before the election and still republicQns pushed him through with the help of another crazy person from russia. They knew he was not capable of doing the job and did it anyway. Now that same craziness is destroying their party. We really need two functioning parties to have a two party democracy.

It would then seem that keeping the presidency "unblemished," which it's not been, is more important than applying our laws. Sadly. Our presidents aren't infallible kings.
