Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for April 11th - Hogg, Hannity & California
Bottom Line: These are the daily doses of nonsense in the media and my hot takes on them...

Sean Hannity Threatens Jimmy Kimmel After His Apology - RealClearLife
Excerpt: “Jimmy, if you do want to start up again, I promise I will punch back even harder.” “And my producer spent all weekend compiling a lot of your highlights, or lowlights, in your career.

Our versatility enables us to respond to domestic emergencies, overseas combat missions, counterdrug efforts, reconstruction missions and more.
Hmm, is federal drug and human trafficking a domestic emergency? Is a state refusing to combat this one as well? Would this be considered a counterdrug effort? So not only does it check one box of the actual purpose of the guard but multiple ones...
