  1. The fact that the leaders of Moms for Liberty ™ was having threesomes with her husband is so hilarious. I mean, go ahead and have a different threesome every day of the week as long as you don’t spend the rest of your time publicly bleating about your superior moral code and how degeneracy is racing through our society.

    Hey Christian, if you’re into the hotwife scene, let me know!

  3. Somewhere in all of the reporting, firefighter salary information should be included. What’s the starting pay, the average pay with 5 years service, 10 years, etc. And the salaries of the top officer positions.

    The taxpayers should be given the opportunity to make an informed decision.

  4. The Fire Fighters should have had a Contract LONG AGO. I am surprised that they have not Walked Off the Job yet. I wouldn’t blame them if they do.
