      I hate it when a cherished friend up and quits me. Thankfully it hasn’t happened but a couple of times in my life, but boy, oh boy have those break-ups hurt. I’m not talking about romances. I’m talking about the kind of friend I[..]

    Amazon is the Anti-Christ

    I woke up this morning with a word. Well, actually, a complete sentence and an unsettled feeling. Maybe it's because I've been reading about rams, canals,goats and horns, that I woke up with my heart racing, my blood pumping and a word: Amazon is the[..]

    God does not love America

    G.I. God
