This week we cover 6 topics and only one didn’t make me mad! You’ll never guess which! Egypt, the Zimmerman trial, Rand Paul’s neo secessionist staffer, Sarah Palin is inexplicably in the news again, Pope John Paul the 2nd will soon be a saint, and Obama lied to kids about broccoli.

We completely understand what is happening in Egypt

This week my friend James Chase came by and we talked about ever so many things!
