    The first woman to graduate from the Citadel is planning to challenge South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham in the Republican primary next year. Charleston businesswoman Nancy Mace will head to Goose Creek Saturday to announce her Senate campaign, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. “This isn’t about one senator,” Mace told TheDCNF. “The only way to change Washington is to change who we send to Washington.” “Washington is out of touch,” she added. “Voters are frustrated. They’re looking for someone authentic.” In a June fundraising email, the Senate Conservatives Fund listed Graham as one of three Republican senators the...

Pepper spray is legal in Canada in limited form (for protection against bears and dogs only!) and I do have someone there that will send it to me, but it is tough to find. After a couple of hours on the web I could only find one...
