SENATE REPUBLICAN LEADER MITCH McCONNELL AT 9:30 I am pretty sure I know what he wants to talk about.
CONGRESSMAN THOMAS MASSIE AT 10:30 11:35 Rep. Massie once said something very funny which seems especially true this week. When asked how things are in DC, he said, "it's a total swamp but all these guys up here think it's a hot tub." It still makes me laugh.

READ THIS ARTICLE About economic freedom in Kentucky and how that translates to wealth creation. Sounds nerdy, but it's really not.
TAKE THAT PARK SNOBS! They wanted it torn down, but thanks to the efforts of people who actually use the pavilion, it is not only going to be saved but may be on the National Historic Registry. I LOVE it! Even though I do think that designation is abused too often.
BUT I'M SURE NOTHING WILL GO WRONG HERE So funny story, the woman who was in charge of the Tax Exempt division of the IRS when they allegedly illegally targeted conservative groups is now in charge of the Obamacare division. I'm sure this will go well. If you need medical care, I'd think about changing your party affiliation first. Just saying.
A $30 DELIVERY CHARGE??? For one of our hometown products, KFC. Buckets of the tasty, greasy treat are being smuggled into the Gaza strip. We don't need to intervene, if we keep sending buckets of fried chicken in all the Hamas terrorists will die of clogged arteries.
I GUESS WE'LL NEVER KNOW The real motive behind the Boston Bombers. Except, wait, we do now, after a note was found scribbled in the boat where the 2nd bomber was found. And amazingly, it was motivated by these young men practicing their version of the Religion of Peace. I guess they forgot about us helping all those Muslims in Kosovo.
YES, MR. PRESIDENT, STILL ILLEGAL A second court has ruled the "recess" appointments made by PrezBO while the Senate was NOT in recess illegal. This is good news for anyone adversely affected by the year's worth of work the National Labor Relations board has done, because it will all be pitched if the Supreme Court upholds this. And I'm guessing after the way this President has gone out of his way to humiliate this court in the past, they won't look too kindly on this.
