Light your torches, grab your pitchforks, and tell the MSM what America is REALLY thinking about. MAKE it the news. Your email account is your weapon, and this is war. So lock and load, and use your electronic Liberty Teeth! Help Sarahcuda, and FReep the MSM!
Golly, where’s 0bama’s sig? It must be there somewhere....NOT!
