The Morning Rant

"What a year it's been for the national Democrats. So far, they've gone all in on baby murdering, they're apparently OK with their members appearing in blackface (for which they would've absolutely crucified Kavanaugh or any Republican elected official ), sexual assault is also a forgivable offense, and most recently, they're having trouble coming to a consensus on whether blatant anti-Semitism and Jew-hatred is actually wrong. And all this time, they've been spinning more and more unhinged anti-Trump conspiracy theories. In a sane world, one in which the Democrats didn't have a compliant, supine, sympathetic media that pretty much has their back on every issue, instead treating them adversarially as they do Republicans, they would be extinguished as a national party. But even so, if what we've seen so far is any indication, and it's only March, 2019 is going to be lit af."

It just means that we lack space. . Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!
