Hey! Here’s an idea! How about covering the NEWS and not just carrying water for the LeftTards? How about some real investigative reporting to see if 0bama really IS eligible to hold office?

That’s where we are as a country.
This isn’t happening fast enough.
Last one out, take the Flag (Yellow Hammer and Sickle on a Red field of course).

Now the Times is trying to sell its 17.8 percent stake in the group that owns the Boston Red Sox. Barclays Capital analyst Hale Holden has estimated that could fetch $140 million to $160 million.
