Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 06:40 PM by FreakinDJ
Let them know you appreciate the refreshing accurate perspective

Because I am equally postitive the Freeps are up in arms spitting out 1000s of angry emails right now spewing "How dare you....unpatriotic....blah blah blaw..."

Same old spew and garbage they have been perpetuating since the Freeptards got this country in this mess

7. "Crooked congressman gets prison"...

15. Last night, a local newscaster called it
