evilteabagger: even-if-there-was-a-fire: Ron Paul’s opinions about cutting the budget are well-known, but on Monday, he’ll get specific: the Texas congressman will lay out a budget blueprint for deep and far-reaching cuts to federal spending, including the elimination of five…
Last night my business partners and I brought in three of my corporate job paychecks in three hours of our business being open. It will not be long now and I will be saying goodbye to corporate America and begin dominating my competition. In what you ask? It doesn’t matter.

The war on poverty seems a hell of a lot easier to win when you realize some people are simply inferior and if not assisted by friends, family, and others under their own free will, should and will starve and die. That’s the natural course of things. I guess a “let them die” ad campaign doesn’t carry the same sentimental heart string vote that “THE WAR ON...
