A few summers ago, my brother and I visited the Franklin, Tennessee, Civil War Battlefield. It was at this small town, where 27,000 Confederate soldiers attacked 27,000 Union soldiers.

Thank you for redirecting your life for this purpose. Among my friends, probably 80% or more are thankful you are President. We are hoping you will be able to drain the swamp.

I had the unfortunate experience of having to sit through the preview for An Inconvenient Truth 2 (I know, even reading the title will make many of you vomit a bit in your mouth) before watching Dunkirk a few days ago, and it spurred in me a desire to set the record straight with a few REAL inconvenient truths that Al Gore is purposely ignoring about the man-made climate change hoax. Let’s go over 4 actual facts that show how much of a waste of time and money continuing to talk and act on man made climate change really...Read More
