spain protest

The enemy is small but incredibly powerful, they mount assaults all across the globe on people everywhere but are like terror cells, operating independently but driven by the same philosophies and practicing the same ruthlessness. The enemy is both foreign and domestic and has more destructive power than any army.

ryan budget

The outraged shouting of Ed Schultz, Sean Hannity, Al Sharpton, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh has been measured to be greater than 10,000 cows burping out a rendition of, “Camptown Races” every minute for an entire year.

Deficit am most dangerous thing in universe. That why we not want to raise taxes to pay it down. We am against wealthy paying more taxes, so we say stop deductions to make wealthy pay more taxes.

We know we’re speeding towards the edge of the cliff and when we reach it, the two inch drop could kill us! If it gave us a heart attack. Which is what the wealthy and the media out there are trying to give us.
