Mission Accomplished George W Bush

Dick Cheney, War Crimes Against Humanity

Enough Is Enough lenn Beck makes a lot of money hanging just a little too close to crazy. I never thought the day would come when we shared any common ground, but on his show this week he delivered a rant, “Enough Is Enough.” I totally agree with the following: From the beginning, most people […]

Should You Attend Bob Jones University?

Should you attend Bob Jones University now that it has a new president? His last name isn’t even Jones.

That’s proof, […]
