What happens when the President opens the floor to questions by anyone, about anything? Well, you get a ton of questions about legalizing marijuana from a few thousand unemployed stoners! The more than 92,000 people who responded either have a Cheech and Chong sense of humor or there is a deep concern in America — […]

It’s one thing to stage a Tea Party to protest the insane spending Congress has approved in the past few months. But a Naked Tea Party? Well, now you’re talking! Toss a drop-dead gorgeous woman into the protest mix and just watch the ground-swell build (*cough*). Why, other gorgeous women will fairly leap to participate! […]
