Moving Forward by The Gunny

Moving Forward We’ve got some priorities we need to take care of, and not a whole lot of options, so we need to use what we have wisely.   We could have control of the house, if the republicans will play for real stakes, and not kowtow to their “honorable adversaries”.  The debt ceiling is […]

What We Bought by The Gunny
