Sarah Palin will grill our butts

Aggregated from: Mideast Youth - Thinking Ahead » USA

It is hard to imagine the amount of damage that we would have to suffer through if McCain wins.

Torturing mere suspects is a severe crime, especially if they are not even allowed a fair trial, regardless of...

A First for America??

Aggregated from: Hypnotic Verses

Will the U.S. see its first African American President this November? I've talked to friends in the States, who are for Obama, but feel he doesn't stand a chance up against McCain.

Barack is a TERRORIST!

Aggregated from: Mahmood's Den

We happened across this woman protesting in front of a Starbucks cafe yesterday morning. Her message is interesting; she contends that: “Barack Hussein promised “change.” What type of change? Black Supremacy. This is worse than September 11, 2001. Black...
