Recently, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made a clear statement that the good people of New York who hold to a pro-life position are not welcome in his state. During an interview last Friday, Cuomo, commenting on problems within the Republican party, said, "Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they?

ghostly lap top

My daughter recently learned the word "b*tch" from a stranger named John.Around 50,000 sexual predators are trolling the internet each day looking for a way to connect with our children.

I dated the Obamacare girl

O girl

 I dated the Obamacare girl.And why wouldn’t I…she was so optimistic and promising when we first met. Big brown eyes and a warm smile. She even wore those long, dangly earrings - those get me every time. She told me, “If you take me out, you’ll find that I’m more than a date. Much more!”Wowsers! That’s a hard promise to pass up. So, we went out. Well, sort of. O-girl told me to pick her up, but when I reached her front door I found a note that read, “I can’t go out at our sch … [Read more...]
