It’s starting to get serious — China has warned North Korea about starting a war. China told them flat out, “Do not fire any missiles at the United States at least until after we get our money. They owe us $16 trillion. Wait until then.”
Some experts believe North Korea has a missile that could reach Los Angeles. And of course, if North Korea did attack Los Angeles, that would start a war with Mexico. The whole thing would escalate.

During a fundraiser, President Obama raised some eyebrows when he called California’s Kamala Harris, quote, “the best-looking attorney general in the country.” Of course he said it was just a joke. Then Michelle was like, “Well, here’s another one: What’s black and white and sleeps on the couch?”
President Obama said that Kamala Harris is the best-looking attorney general while at a fundraiser. So hopefully, that fundraiser was to buy a really nice necklace for Michelle.
There’s this trend now of politicians cutting their salaries by 5 percent because of budget cuts — except for Vice President Joe Biden. He won’t do it. Though in fairness, it’ll take Biden at least a month to figure out what 5 percent of his salary is.

Ted is such an inspirational person…
Quote from Ted: “I’ve often been asked, ‘What do you old folks do now that you’re retired?’ Well, I’m fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and Jack Daniel’s into urine. Then I pee on a photo of Obama, I do it every day and I really enjoy it.”
Ted is an inspiration to all…
