And as far as you Big Pimping Lake Home livers living on the shores of a toxic body of water is just another way Obama's and Walker's special interest groups take value away from you.

Now, how about that Arctic Oscilliation after Obama's Shell gets going with their Arctic drilling! Can you say "climate fubar"?

AND THIS IS???

Backlash, ignorance, boredom, empty lives? Best sellers, all three awful books, right on top of the NY Times list of most popular books. This is feminism, women’s lib? It’s to puke.
