  6. Glenn- funny stuff! Love when your articles show up on Lucianne/ Drudge. Hope life is not too difficult in Aspen, the Shangri La for liberals. Be proud that you are the pesky hemorrhoid that keeps recurring on the arse of Progressives. Keep it up!!!

  7. Just read your article in the Glenwood Post Independent and thought I would fall off my stool laughing!! Loved it!! Keep writing!! So clever about the Dems and witches!!

  8. Your piece on “Marxism to Conservatism” was the best explanation of “Virtue Signaling” I’ve seen anywhere, but you never used the term. You got to the heart of how Progressives can possibly support some of the ideas that they espouse. Great work.
