Forever-Impeached, President Asswipe has another chance to act like a President with dignity in his State of the Union address tonight.

However many people think he’ll lie, brag, beg for re-election, whine about his impeachment, and misbehave like a spoiled brat.

I Never Lost My Buttons

Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

In 1964, I was 14-years old and collected presidential campaign buttons. Let’s face it, there’s nothing that attracts junior high babes more than a guy who collects buttons!  OK, I was a dork.

On the internet, these buttons now go for $3-to-$9 EACH! Of course if I flooded the market, their prices would be measured in cents.

Recently I bought some canvases and made a few hundred into displays.  Actually they look pretty neat – if you like old presidential campaign buttons.
