  1. 3-30 These must be the antireligious groups who are equivalent to people in the Bible times of the judges. They did only what they thought was right without regard to laws (10 Commandments). Interesting they also will get in the same trouble. Of course, they wouldn’t dare check up and see what is coming for them!

  2. Obama’s buddies rake it in!

  3. SURPRISE????????????????

  4. Exactly what sort of event would a mob museum host?

    Go to this website and sign the petition to vet Obama and check into his eligibility to be president. Send this to everybody on your mailing list. Ask them to do the same. We need all the signatures we can get.
