Geraldo the joke

Geraldo Rivera is a very funny guy. Problem is, he's really not trying to be funny. Listening to "Hannity & Colmes" on Fox News, I hear Geraldo recount his close call with an al Qaeda sniper. I'm wondering if Geraldo saw his life flash before his eyes and he's as disappointed with his life as he should be.

But it gets especially funny just a couple of minutes later when they break into their program to go back to Geraldo as he prepares to give us a play-by-play on a B-52 dropping its bombs (it's gravity Geraldo...we get it). The kicker is, the B-52 never dropped its bombs. Geraldo keeps telling us how this whole hillside is going to blow up any second...and it never happens.

Then Geraldo posits that the B-52 didn't drop its bombs because it may be too close to Geraldo's position. I'm not sure if the military holds Geraldo in such high esteem as Geraldo thinks it should.


In a just world, SB 918 and its New York counterpart would make the Supreme Court* say: "well, we tried to let you keep shall issue, but you morons just couldn't help yourselves, so now constitutional carry is the law of the land".

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"?

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
