Why I Worry About Al Qaeda Right Now
With the current all-encompassing economic crisis continuing to unfold and the situation in Iraq holding steady, its easy to fixate on domestic issues. But taking a step back from the economic mess that is currently sucking up all the political and media oxygen, it is important to remain focused on Al Qaeda’s desire to destroy us and the previous well timed opportunism of their attacks. | Read More »
The Coming VAT
