What Or Who Do You Believe In Anymore?

At this point, I can’t think of a single political organization that has my trust. I look at the field of potential presidential candidates in 2016, for all the political parties, big and small, and shudder. [...]

50 Dead in Two Iraq Bombings Were Not Prepared

If September 2008 is the 5th annual National Preparedness Month, doesn’t that mean that the four previous National Preparedness months didn’t actually get America prepared? Perhaps it ought to be renamed National Not Quite Ready Yet Month. [...]

The Virgin Mary Burned My Eyeballs! It’s a Miracle!
