    Raspberry Takes A Hard Look At Poverty

    In the Saturday Gazette-Mail, I urged people to Take a good cold, hard look at poverty. Little did I know that William Raspberry was already taking an even tougher look at poverty: Why today’s young women have kids first and marry later. This is not s…

    Scientist have found that lab rats with insomnia who watch the documentary “Inside the Bubble”, which follows the Kerry/Edwards campaign through their failed 2004 campaign, are 75% more likely to get a restful nights sleep. PETA has already called fo…

  8. Is the ACLU Anti-Christian?

    Many people view the ACLU as anti-Christian (Anti-Christian Lawyers Union, etc). With all the cases they take beating away any symbol of Jesus in the public square, it’s hard to think they AREN’T anti-Christian. As the new symbol of Los Angeles shows…

    There are many jokes, based on fact, for voting in Chicago. Vote Early, Vote Often. Voters on the voting roll, whose forwarding address is a cemetary. I believe Pakistan has one-up’ed them. Seems two women were elected to office. Only

  14. Botched abortion kills both mother & baby

    Hmmm. Roe v Wade must have been overturned and this was an abortion performed in a backshop hacksmiths office. Oh that’s right, Roe v Wade wasn’t overturned and this girl was at a LEGAL baby killer (oops I mean abortion) clinic.

  15. News of Deaths Greatly Exaggerated
