WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

Love him or hate him, and frankly, depending on the day, I can do both, but Rand Paul always kills it with his yearly "Waste Report." This year is no different. He brought to light a ton of new wasteful spending, and it is too rich and juicy to pass up.

As always, Paul goes into detail on all of these topics in his Waste Report. It is good reading.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

In bad boys news, a federal indictment says the deadly Houston drug raid was based on lies from start to finish.

In more bad boys news, the NYPD bragged about a big pot bust on social media. Turns our it seized 106 pounds of legal hemp.

In innocence news, after 36 years in prison for the Georgetown Jacket murders, three men are exonerated at last.

In related news, a Tennessee court is refusing to test DNA evidence that could exonerate a man the state already executed.

In do it for the children news, a Virginia bill proposes a law that outlaws minors using guns to fend off home invaders.

In what the actual f*** news, cops put a GPS tracker on a man's car, then charge him with theft after he found it and removed it.

ASK ME ANYTHING

I answer your questions on the worst book, F Marry Kill Marc Clair, Johnny Rocket, Chris Spangle, favorite Thanksgiving dishes, impeachment, documentaries, public school, and homesteading.
