    Giving Thanks On Thanksgiving Day 2009

    There are so many truly awful things going on the world today that it is easy to get overwhelmed and downhearted. For one thing, it seems that no matter how much We the People protest against the socialist agenda juggernaut going on in our nation’s Capital, all our respective representatives-turned-dictatorial-lawgivers snort is “Whee! The people…?” This last being squealed as they lift their snouts from | Read More »

What a narcissist. I wonder if SEIU’s Andy Stern gave his approval | Read More »
