Greed and Unchecked Capitalism…

You were probably taught to revere our economic system: capitalism. You were probably taught that “socialist” Europe was evil, and communist Russia was the worst. And, like me, you ate it up. That’s what we were supposed to do. Well, hmm… This is what we all bought into: This home located at 1062 Plymouth Drive in Sunnyvale, Calif. recently set… Continue reading

Too Hysterical!

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – With the establishment of government-mandated death panels just days away, grandmothers began fleeing the United States in record numbers today, reports Fox News. “I am never one to yell ‘Fire’ in a crowded theater,” said Fox News host Glenn Beck. “But run for your lives!” Across the country, slow-moving caravans of 1980s-era Cadillacs with turn… Continue reading
