    Let the gays get married,

    let the rednecks have guns, let the atheists be atheists and the Christians be Christians. This is America, America is about freedom. Freedom to live how you please and be happy about your life, so smoke a bowl, shoot your guns, cuss a lot, praise Jesus, and wish those two...

    I really think George Washington had a crystal

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...
