James Mountain Inhofe to put language into National Defense Authorization Act preventing counselors from asking about it. USA! USA!!!!
Still, at least we got all those weapons of mass destruction, didn’t we? Sure we did. We elected them to public office.

Here’s a fun Zombie Apocalypse survival trick: boiling water in a plastic shopping bag.

Maybe the Great Famine gave them some insight? The Irish government expects to pass a law this year that could encourage banks to substantially cut the amount that borrowers owe on their mortgages, a step that no major country has been willing to take on a broad scale.
