I just received my Tee Time book today. Many of the deals which were in the previous Tee Time book are no longer there. I will be playing and practicing at least twice a week. I also will be buying a used car. Let's get to it.
Even though he was a United States Congressman from Pennsylvania his conviction did not make national news on CNN. He had been investigated by the FBI for almost ten years for his misdeeds during and after the 2007 mayoral election in Philadelphia. Chaka was supposedly legendary for his ground game. For the political novice, this game includes the ability to motivate teams of people to pass out literature and get loyal voters to the polls on election day. Chaka had been a sitting Congressman and rarely had to campaign for reelection. His ascension to Congress was extraordinary. He served in the House of Representatives from 1983 to 1988.

He deserved to bask in the glow of his flurry of Executive Orders and measly legislative achievements. He has signed over 30 Executive Orders. He was able to get Neil Gorsuch confirmed as a Supreme Court justice after the nuclear option was utilized by the Republican controlled Senate to lower the threshold for a Justice to be nominated to 51 votes from the former 60. After Gorsuch, it has been mostly tough going for the President.
He has falsely claimed that massive voter fraud kept him from winning the popular vote against Hillary Clinton. He also falsely claimed that he actually had the largest electoral college margin in recent history. In fact, Donald Trump lost the popular vote in November's presidential election by a larger margin than any other president in U.S. history. Imagine that. He also falsely claimed th…
