  1. I just heard the Yemen embassy will be closed as security deteriorates.
    All the regulations, caveats, time limit have been noted in the draft.
    I would rather hear “Let’s go get them”, Ready Go!, We will procede with this to keep our Country safe!,
    No one will change our wonderful Country! I hope everyone get’s my point. I may not be a good title person, but to me those sound better than this tip toe crud. The enemy is also reading this draft.

  2. Regarding Common Core, Bush tried to assure everyone regarding the issue itself. I would like Bush to stand in front of a chalkboard, while on camera. He can than show American citizens how a simple grammer school math problem under the Common Core standard. People would be very surprised.

  3. Well, if the FCC votes for that, its not right. Pressure? You mean the Mafia government is threatening the FCC now? And trash talk about Staples today? Every day something else. The guy is starved for any kind of attention, bad or good, doesn’t matter.
