Bans, Russia and Trump Tweets

Reading the news this past week, I'm left wondering who is actually in charge of the country? It's an odd feeling to have seeing signs that the country you're living in is actually being coordinated by a loose group of people who may or may not understand truly how government works.

Being uninformed is not bliss

Inspiration: Media to Voters: Drop Dead, We're Getting Hillary Elected How can we fight this? The mainstream media has implied, we as voters, are stupid. Sheep following the Sheep Dog, obeying every nudge in the direction of the fenced corral that leads to slaughter. Mainstream Media (MSM) is now a juggernaut controlled by the will … Continue reading Being uninformed is not bliss
