Back in the day, I used to hear stories about people hopping a ocean-going freighter to go to Europe and working your way across.

Before you re-up with the C of C, make sure you know exactly where they stand and who they support. The spread of Liberalism is slow and relentless - almost imperceptible - and shows up in unlikely places everyday. The Camel has stuck his nose under the tent. Move over, AARP.

The lie of the year, according to Politifact, is “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” But the story of the year is a nation waking up to just how radical Obamacare is — which is why it required such outright deception to get it passed in the first place.

I double-dog dare any Democrat in the audience to dispute that Obama clearly said you can keep your plan. I suspect there will be at least one or two, and this will support my theory that Democrats are simply broken little children in big peoples' body suits.
