Today we have reports of attacks with baseball bats and machetes. We have become a society full of barbarians.

When will Alec Baldwin learn to hire a couple of bodyguards to deal with his paparazzi/anger issues?

I’m tired of the lazy, knee-jerk use of the word “haters” to describe anyone who criticizes stupid behavior.

Didn’t Obama run in 2008 on “bring the troops home. We will get them home”? Now not only did he not do that he’s going to start another conflict in Syria and send more troops. Why is our job to police the world?
