What is the purpose of life?

Yeah, but does it have to be a 10 on the Richter scale?

Prescient, from before the election:

Trump supporters telling a reporter, “Look, all we want is someone who will shake things up in Washington.” Behind them is a parade of deplorables and monsters including a hooded Klansman with a stick or bat, a huge Nazi thug wearing a swastika, an angry man in camo with a rifle and crossed bandoliers, and an anthropomorphized H-bomb (nuclear mushroom cloud).

Their parents broke the law.

They don't have jobs.

They cost taxpayers money.

I wish he would spend 3 or 4 months here fighting fires & still deny global warming!
