With the 2016 Presidential race in the rearview mirror, the liberal pundits are still focused on what President Trump hasn’t accomplished in his first one-hundred days.

Time For A REAL Enterprise Zone



Good Evening Guys ‘N’ Gals:

Heh! I “borrowed” the City’s “West Edge” logo for this one, as it was in severe need of modification … LOL
