  • Reminder warning to applicants. The chair of that committee is know-it-all blowhard Trumpster Ward Scott. Appointed several times by Hutchinson and Byerly, yet every day on his pudcast he calls them communists and other names. Yet he works for them. Nothing like a Republican to badmouth your boss.
    You could not pay me enough to sit in a room with that ******* for an hour once a month. It would qualify as cruel and unusual punishment. Your mileage may vary.
