George Bailey Goes to Washington



"Just remember this, Mr. Trump, that these immigrants you're talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this country. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die without feeling unwanted? Anyway, our forefathers didn't think so. Immigrants were human beings to them, but to you, a warped, frustrated, orange man, they're cattle. Well, in my book they died much richer men than you ever will."

Halloween Returns Home!

I figured it out...

When you are a teenager you think you know everything but you don't, and everyone knows you don't. When you are in your 20's you pretend to have figured it all out because you don't want everyone to think you wasted all that time in school for nothing. By the time you hit your 30's you start to realize that most of what you thought you knew was crap and there's no point to pretending. In your 40's you have finally figured it all out, cross-referenced your sources, double checked your references, and become a regular visitor to Snopes. In your 50's you realize that you still don't know anything but will be way too embarrassed to admit you are in your 50's and still don't know anything. By the time you are in your 60's you will have finally figured out that trying to figure out anything was never the point.

Be thankful for your 70's, when no one will second guess you because they figure you will be dead soon.

It started out as an innocent tour of the old New Mexico State Penitentiary, the site of one of the worst prison riots in America.

Then it all went wrong.
