Posted by on | August 29, 2015 | No Comments

Well, this is interesting: “Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz blocked consideration of a resolution at the party’s summer meeting that would have praised President Obama and backed the his nuclear deal with Iran, The Washington Post reported Saturday, citing unnamed sources.” Probably irrelevant, but still interesting.

Posted by on | August 29, 2015 | No Comments

Although the figures in this are five years old, the wasting of welfare funds is eye-opening and infuriating.  When should taxpayers ever foot the bill for someone else’s lavish vacation?!  Never.  (Side note:  if you can vacation with the best of them, there is probably a job you can do to earn your own living.)
