Wearing a mask (or not) should not be a political issue. Americans should not be killing each other over a strip of fabric. Let’s try to get through the rest of the year with a bit of civility and common sense.

She is an all-American success story, a woman who built a good life based on hard work, determination, grit, and common sense.

Get top hats added to the official prison uniform. Renew friendship with Paul Manafort. Publish cellmate’s pornographic emails. Get a prison tattoo of Trump’s face on my chest and freshen up Nixon tattoo on my back. Declare myself a hydra. Open a tailoring business for bespoke orange jumpsuits. Deny having anything to do with the release of cellmate’s pornographic emails. Threaten a fellow inmate with certain death and then pontificate for 45 minutes about how all death is certain. Take…
Now that you’re here, you’ll need to abide by our rules. Failure to follow these rules will get your ass kicked out of the politics-free zone quicker than you can say “Yankee Doodle,” which is a thing you definitely cannot say here.
