The Climate Change Leader

If Obama would take a break from electioneering and killing children he might have a little time to devote to climate change. Mexico is in the lead. Surprised? But first you might want to read three items from today's Democracy Now in order to know what keeps Obama busy.

Your comments are welcome

Do you feel what happen in the 1960s in the United States made this country better? Weaker? The same? and if Barry Goldwater won in 1964 would it have happen and would have made the United States better with him in? Weaker? or the Same?

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.
