    Well, when your state is home to the White family (look up the documentary on them.....ho lee sheet), you really shouldn't be given too much consideration.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I don't remember, was it the movie about the Whites where they actually had to provide subtitles so you knew what they were saying, or am I thinking of Barbara Kopple's movie Harlan County, USA?
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    I could understand them but I've lived close to WV for more than a decade. When I first moved here I couldn't understand anybody. These people have no consonants, it's all a mushmouth of toothless vowels. Meaning comes from intonation, like Mandarin.

    Mao-mao and Pu-pao. (For full flavor you have to imagine this at 200 words a minute and drunk.)

    Anyway, our Ops Manager comes from Boone County, where the Whites live (well, exist). His father was Town Supervisor and dealt with the older generation of Whites. The stuff about walking along the highway picking up coal fragments for heating is true. One thing the doc didn't talk about is all the women were involved in prostitution (from 13 on up) and "on retainer" for long haul truck stops, and the local PD got a cut to keep out of their business. One of the sixteen million arrests of the family was tied to an officer trying to renegotiate the contract with the family on the fly. They beat him almost to death.

    Real nice folk. There's an Aryan Nation offshoot group nearer to my side of the state, just to keep things lively.

    You just don't get it, do you? All the stupid and crazy stuff you accused Obama of is actually potentially going to happen... under the guy you support.

    Amendment I

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    Remind me again when the Cabell County School Board held a US Senate seat?

    Congress isn't prohibiting this woman's free speech. Her employer is suspending her because she's a racist a**hole and they don't (publicly) support her Tweets.



    Remember, the Government doesn't give a sh** if you're a public a**hole. Your employer can and does.

    Then why did he use the IRS to target conservatives, and "retire" generals that disagreed with globalist policies?

    Your blame turning still isn't fooling anyone.

    Government entities have to act in two capacities. First as a service to their citizens, and second as an employer. A government agency cannot punish anyone by rendering inferior services or outright denial of services based upon what they say. They can, however, dictate to their employees a level of conduct that is expected of them both in the office and out of the office, so as not to create issues for the employer. This is nothing new.
    "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    Your Honor, I was fine when she took a spoonful of the tomato soup, but when she took a bite of my grilled cheese sandwich, that's when I let her have it!!
