It's a tragedy America had to fight a destructive civil war to free people who really just want to be slaves.

Our course is not sustainable. And when I tried to cheer myself up with the purchase of a couple hundred rounds of .22, there was none to be found. Don't tell me ammo won't be...

the next currency. Or maybe it will be cigarettes and Hershey bars like 1946 Germany.

Biblical scholar Chris Rock breathed the spirit of a Pauline epistle last week, as he urged children to meekly submit to their parents: “The president and the first lady are kinda like the Mom and Dad of the country,” Rock said. “And when your Dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it will usually bite you in the ass later on.”

Wait…he wasn’t urging submission to mom and dad, but to Caesar as if he were mom and dad.

If you’ve managed to keep your last meal down, it gets worse. Because, when you reject the...
