Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

Who da fark cares if he was impeached? Moscow Mitch was never going to let anything happen, the whole thing was over before it started. Americans, specifically those in Kentucky, are morons and keep foisting that morally bankrupt fucktard on the country.

Saw were Wegman's is giving their staff a $2/hour raise.

Got an e-mail from the World Market chain, they're closing for 60 days but paying their staff anyway.
