With (Facebook) friends like these…

Christian ‘tree witch’ shooters admit their guns are dangerous “like bombs”

Remember the 400 rednecks who shot their guns at 'tree witches' for Jesus? No? It was for New Years - January 2nd - how could you forget?Check it out:http://www.youtube.com/embed/kiM1Iw37__0?I was on the receiving end of some hate from Cherryville natives - and my comments section was getting pretty heated. Over and over, people were claiming that this insanity was actually safe. Admittedly, I erroneously thought they were shooting live rounds. Turns out they were using 'black powder … [Read more...]

Rick Perry: “Let’s get the troops back to work”

He didn't say it like that, but during last night's Republican primary debate, Rick Perry seemed to promise to start / restart more wars. He wants to put the troops back in Iraq, just days after the war ended.We all know that long wars generate jobs for Americans... or not, I guess.
