    Re: Conversation
    with a liberal

Next he says “Because you voted for this gang and are somewhat responsible for this debt, how much of my part are you going to assume? He did not know what to say.”

    Faced with a global depression, mandating significant cuts in most areas of state government, Beshear has consistently worked to maintain the integrity of education in Kentucky by preventing cuts to the education budget.

  • Kids tour the world at Towne Mall

    Fun depends on your point of view. It’s the latest lesson from a first-of-summer visit by the grandchildren.
    Funtopia, Blazer’s, local parks and elementary school playgrounds are popular destinations when the kids visit Grandpa and Gigi. You might expect that list.
