    Harry Reid Is Off His Meds

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took full credit for preventing a world wide depression yesterday.  That is correct, a politician who is the higest ranking member of the United States Senate is taking credit for saving the world economy.  We can now change the term “God Complex” and add a new term into the lexicon of America — “Harry Reid Complex.” Reid seemed to be taking full credit for | Read More »

    “All Catholics Are Pedophiles” — The Democrats’ Closing Argument

    This is not the first time the Democrats have gone this route in this election season. This may, however, be the most desperate attempt.

    NPR Might Be In Trouble
