  4. wondering

    Wondering what % of CNN bloggers are obese. What % live off of welfare. With a nationwide obesity epidemic and a welfare State, a large % no-doubt. (lets see who takes this general statement personally)

  5. wondering

    Wondering why chrissy didn't notice "this congress" mandated that the CIA help the FBI deal with domestic terrorism. Is it "bad" for a congress to want America cleaned up? Howso?
