52…? Nifty United States!

Democrats are fired up to take back the Senate, and big changes could be on the way if it happens.

He also said that Senate Democrats are “using all the tactics [they] can” to slow down or block the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

    Hi, Leo…just a little laugh for you, I remember singing Fifty Nifty United State in chorus in high school, and to this day I can name all of the 50 states in alphabetical order, I have to sing it when I do, but I can do it…LOL The downside is my voice isn’t what it used to be due to damage to damage to my vocal cords, so my grandchildren laugh like the dickens when I sing. I just have to say I’m so very proud of you! It took such courage what you did and I’m truly impressed! Love ya, Leo!
