Winooski, Vermont and the Dismantling of America’s Values

As a talk show host, I have no choice but to keep up with what’s happening in America and the world. I am therefore submerged in depressing and often angering fare.

Eric Holder & Hiroshima

Attorney General and all around scum-bucket Eric Holder felt it imperative to rush off to Ferguson, MO, to toss in his two cents worth of gas on a burning fire.  He could have pointed out that the reason there is 50% unemployment among the black males in town, men who have nothing better to do…
