Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 27, 2012 |

Did anyone watch the most recent debate…er, shouting match between Newt and Mitt? What an embarrassment.

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Rick Perry dropped his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. I couldn’t help but wonder at the timing of the announcement. It was just before the debate yesterday.

Instead of my normal Wednesday’s Guest where a real live person shares something, I wanted to let some of the organizations and websites that are part of the online protest of SEPA speak up.
