  1. Here is Johnson speaking about how he went from working odd jobs as a handyman making $3.50 an hour to the head of a construction business employing over 1,000 people.

    That business – he didn’t build that.

  2. The owner of Jose T Garcia’s didn’t build that. He actually built a place named Joe T Garcia’s.

    1. If you wrote “Jose T. Garcia’s”–you didn’t spell that (correctly)!

  3. Good stuff. Wonder if they needs any hot dog carts on the work sites.

  4. I’ve eaten at Joe Garcia’s. That place is pure fucking awesome. Which is quite a feat, actually, because the food is unremarkable to shitty.

    1. Looks like they could have used you there to listen to Gary. At least he doesn’t have to worry about hecklers

    2. I notice they splurged on the big banner and lights for this event though. Probably explains the 2 heads in the crowd

  5. GJ REEEEEAAAAAALLLLYYYY needs to learn how to campaign effectively. Yes, I know he managed to win elections twice in New Mexico. Apparently, that does not translate to a national election. I’m rooting for the guy, and maybe there’s nothing better he can do, but dang he looks ineffective.

    1. Step 1: Stop cutting your own hair.

  6. “You didn’t build that, Gary!”

    -Barack Obama
