  • The most pressing question is: “Would you rather the entire world population be annihilated … or allow the filthy (probably Birkenstock-wearing!!!) Russians to exist simultaneously on the same planet with us ‘truly exceptionals’?”

    The first proposition is brought to you recently by the handlers of Dem. President Dirty Harry. I’m not entirely convinced this is a partisan conundrum.

    If you make $900 a week and lose 5%, you’re down to $855. Before taxes. If you’re talking after taxes, it’s more like $600 and $570. That’s $120 a month. If you don’t have that much margin, it might as well be 50%, because you are now losing money every week.
