So if he is overweight it means the threat and subsequent assault by a buddy of Grisham never happened? Some of the very same things could be said about Grisham if you have read his recent teets and statements (batshit crazy, sycophants, narcism, etc).

It is never a good sign of economic recovery that one of the main source of jobs is the government. The area with the fourth highest projected job growth is the D.C. area. There is no recession up in Obama land. Unfortunately, the spending is killing off the private sector... Continue reading

Nothing like giving them more money so they can help cause another financial meltdown. But as long as his friends get rich and Fannie and... Continue reading

Why does the AMA support ObamaCare? Their support was bought with a provision in the defense spending bill that gets rid of a scheduled 21% cut in doctor reimbursement from MediCare. It is these types of "cuts" that allow Senator Reid to claim the bill is deficit neutral. Of course,... Continue reading
