  1. some people read, but certainly don't understand


  2. I know it's formality, but Oh God, what a calamity. The man believes that 1+1=0, you will not find math, money, and Kenny in the same sentence...ever. It is also time to have a Minister of Finance other than the PM, especially the current one, no wonder we're so screwed.


  3. Boy open your eyes and ears.It look like you part of the better days to.sing for your supper.Kenny will give you a bone.


  4. Kenny as chair, rather than King, is a clear example, despite the continuing challenges, of 'better days'!
    Things are indeed rough - but under the stewardship of King and 'his' crew, matters would certainly be much, much worse, in my informed opinion!!
