Oh, wait….wrong Turkey. Nothing quite like seeing a lame duck president pardoning the national turkey (can you tell which one’s which?). Actually, I think our comedian-in-chief is pretty good in this role. Nor did I mind his jab at GOP presidential candidates (I think some of them are turkeys). It was done in lighthearted jest….

He’s left the building. He’s running out the clock. And he’s getting his ass kicked everywhere. American adversaries sense Obama’s weakness and are flexing their… Read more »

The apple does not fall far from the libertarian tree. The one thing that is the biggest negative in ever considering Rand Paul as PotUS is that he shares the same isolationist/non-interventionist scrawny foreign policy beliefs as his father.

From behind the shield she feels comfortable hurling divisive claims of GOP voter supression in the knowledge that the pandering media leaders will lead the accommodating pack down a rabbit hole.
