People Are Dying In Yemen As The Mainstream Media Obsesses Over Trump’s Tweets And Roy Moore (Video)

Let me start off by saying I have no problem with the media. I refer to it and quote it every day in these articles.

Obama Just Trolled The Hell Out Of Trump And The Other Birthers (VIDEO)

One of the many great things about former President Barack Obama is his incredibly sharp sense of humor. As he proved time and again at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, the man can flat-out tell a joke. And his humor is often self-deprecating, which makes it even more endearing.

Roger Waters Supports BDS Movement–NY Legislator Wants Him Banned

Former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters has never been one to withhold his political views. Just listen to the 1977 album Animals, or 1979’s The Wall.

I was a fifth grade teacher for a lot of years. I’ve spent countless hours encouraging children to be thoughtful, moral, cooperative members of our classroom community.
