14. You have a point there. Oregon is interesting cause blue is only Portland to coast.

Eugene to coast. And a little dot on the Calif/Oregon border, Ashland. Everything else is red. Boy do they have a fit a woman having such a strong authoritive voice. I chuckle so. Because blue wave really has this. That is what is so much fun living here. I win. Lol.

15. 🤣🤣🤣🤣👍

Try the south. People qre amazed because I "say what I mean." (Don't - it is horrid!)

When women say that, prefaced by "you must be from up north because you," I always ask "Why the hell would I waste breath on anything else?" Seriously!

Bovine stares.

5. It is honestly the only way we'll ever get our lives out of stagnation.

What wasn't done in the beginning by Trump, unfortunately HAS to be mandated nationally.

Sucks that Trump passed that unpopular flaming ball to someone else to deal with.
