    P&G is notorious for having one of the most toxic work environments in American business. The local emergency room calls stress-related heart attacks P&G’s. What exactly is he expected to do at the VA?

    I saw a trailer for the “Aaron Swartz documentary. Even though he was caught, put in jail and killed himself under the Obama regime the trailer shows a clip of Bush.

    Say, remember when those of us who said the radical islamists wanted to form a “new Caliphate” in the Middle East were just paranoid?


    Stabbings at the BET Awards Pre-Party with rappers? Who could have foreseen such a thing? I mean, shootings, sure – but stabbings? So “old school” . . .
