    The Crap I Get For My Views

    Americans Largely Silent As Their Nation Is Systematically Destroyed

    I read many sites each day to see what is going on in the news because the tv news and newspapers do not rally cover "real news".   There is a lot of stuff that needs to be gotten out but can only be found on internet.  One of the sites I visit each day...

    Yesss

    It seems, where I live and online as well, as soon as I say the words "more conservative" I get a bunch of crap. Apparently, it's a horrid thing to be more conservative. I get everything about Bush and blah blah blah. Doesn't mean I agree with him! ...
