You may now use an ordinary House Cat to hack your neighbor’s Wi-Fi. (Whom can one trust anymore?)

Federal Tax collections at 10 months into the government’s fiscal year, increased to a new record – but the deficit is still about half a trillion dollars. Look down the track; you see a train coming?

    This is definitely one of your best summaries and with links provided again. I woke up again last night howling with my cat. I thought it was the cat howling that woke me up, but maybe I woke up the cat. Checked pet health web site…says cat may be suffering from dementia.
    Also 3 black teens hospitalized an elderly white woman with a broken collar bone and brain injury. Thank goodness they hospitalized her, think what could have happen to poor woman un-hospitalized.
    As for “Kill-Switch.” I once wore a small mirror on my shoe toe to school one day long ago. Girl I played Jacks with before class in the morning stomped my foot. Heck, I heard about the technology long before internet. I subscribed to but don’t think it was in ‘Boy’s Life’.
    I enjoy Jack. Me oh my oh, had some fun down on the bayou!

      🙂 Hmnn … Instead of “hospitalized” maybe I could have that the teens helped with job creation at the hospital. General Holder allows only positives re black teens …

    Where can we send donations so more Westford Baptists can go? Can we send the “knockout game” players and the Fergason Rioters too?
