Chairman Attila the Hun

It was good seeing our new Chairman on TV coming just short of calling for a police state here in Hall County.  You can skip all the fun and jump to his speech starting at the 1:18:26 mark.  The best part is that the Chairman announced that he is to the “right of Attila the…
