News Flash: Over 100 Terrorists Cheer Sensational Media Attention. In Other Ignored News…

I will not help the terrorists’ recruitment pitch by waving my hands. I firmly exercise the right to choose where to focus my attention.

It is theorized that I am the Dalai Lama

“It is theorized that the coconut provides all of the required natural properties for survival.”

Where did the 2016 Presidential Candidates stand on Campaign Disclosure in the Senate?

For decades now, nearly all federal campaign finance reports have been filed electronically so we can find out as soon as possible who’s been getting funded by whom.
