  • This Guy

    Have fun Hays. Enjoy the show, he is always good for a laugh or two.

  • Hmmm,

    This should be interesting, since he slashed the education budget, but administrators in Johnson county are still driving mercedes while teachers here have to pay for supplies for their classroom from their own meager salaries.The only thing I can say I support him on is the way he is standing up to Comrade Holder & the gang of 8.
