    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/04/25/george-w-bush-has-saved-more-lives-than-any-american-president/ George W. Bush, not Barack Obama, is the real American hero in Africa. Take it from me, a liberal Democrat who voted for Obama twice. I know a little about Africa: I have been to the continent 17 times over the last 32 years. In particular, I have a great interest in South Sudan; I first traveled there in March 2008, and I have been back 13 since. South Sudan is the mostly Christian nation that won its independence from Sudan after a half-century of civil war; in 2011, South Sudan was admitted into the United Nations as a...
  • Assaulted by a minivan driving lib (vanity)

    On the way to pick up the kids from school today, I was verbally assaulted by an unhinged libtard in a beat-up mom-mobile (minivan). I was stopped in front of the Middle School (the crossing guards had traffic stopped for the buses) and this clown drives up on my right side and motions for me to put my window down. I assumed he was going to tell me I had a low tire or something similar, but instead he launched into this profanity laced rant about my Romney/Ryan 2012 election bumper sticker (no, I haven't removed it yet). He informed...

    My 8 and 9 year old lost a classmate this weekend. She, like them, was an adoptee from China. She had complications from treatment (marrow transplant) and passed away in her sleep, but that was unexpected. This is a small Christian school where all the children know each other. They had been praying for Sophia for a long time and they are struggling with understanding why, since they prayed, she died anyway. Please, if you will, pray for Sophia's family and the children of our school as they deal with this sad event.

And just how many places has he visited? 9 News Anchor Lance Barry is on your side with the answers. Since Mallory took office in December of 2005, he has taken more than 60 trips, almost a...

    My daughter is going through a nasty divorce. Her husband is shacked up in their house with some skank he met on facebook. He kicked my daughter and his girls out into the night, she went back to Kentucky and got an apartment. He lied, took the girls to NY for a visit, kept them, and filed for custody. Per court order, they now switch the girls every 10 days. Last Monday, when they were picked up, the 21 month old had a bruise shaped like a hand and the 5 yr old said that "Daddy hit us."

    Greene said in a 2009 interview that she began tapping her state pension because the job switch came with a steep reduction in pay -- from $121,350 a year as a judge to $73,564 as recorder last year. "It's not double-dipping," Greene said at the time. "This is a necessity for me. How could I have afforded the lifestyle I had set for myself?" On Tuesday, Greene denied that the lawsuit has anything to do with self-interest.

    So right before half-time I go the grocery to get stuff for the kids lunches, and I see a man looking at a list with a perplexed look holding a box of maxipads. I know that look, and while I consider asking if he needs assistance, he looks up and sees me looking at him. He looks kind of sheepy and says "um, uh, this isn't for me." So I stand there trying not to laugh and ponder what to respond (a. I assumed so, b. I don't care, c. only a real man buys that for his woman, or...

    My daughter and her husband (active duty coast guard) purchased a home last year. The real estate disclosure noted NO FIRE DAMAGE. After they moved in, a next door neighbor brought over photos showing the house fully on fire. Now they are starting to find fire related issues. They need a lawyer but all claim they have some association with the former owners lawyer, and won't touch the case. The former owner and his lawyer are scum bags from what we can determine. The realtor was worthless. The home was purchased with a VA loan (and INSPECTED by the VA)...
