April 5, 2018 Sound of the Beep

Good morning, Beep. I hear where there’s some school administrator wanting to fit everybody with a box of rocks. What kind of leadership is that? They’re taking us back to the Stone Age. Don’t they know that people have already invented gunpowder? % % % The publicly funded left-wing media outlet known as NPR, national progressive radio, is hilarious to listen to, if you pay close attention.

Carla Strickland     Something We Can All Complain About Dear Editor, Some people wonder why I complain so much about police brutality and corruption. Here is a good example that was first reported by the Hudson Star-Observer in Wisconsin. It was revealed that over an eight-month period, a police officer named John Worden had sex on the job about 98 times. He also fabricated his worklog 146 times, spent four to six hours a day making personal phone...
