    If we aren't carefull Obama will have his entire cabinet and agency heads full of these controversial ding bats. He somehow thinks he has the answers to our problem when in fact he is the problem. His first term should have illustrated that.

The people in the middle East !!! more mosque !! Right !!Right not for Americans !!

  5. Cap and trade is the same thing as plundering.
