That first article is rather frightening. Should be required reading of all homeowners. I passed it on to the local tea party group.
I wholeheartedly agree with the summation of the second article: "The only positive thing to come out of this election is the demise of the GOP." This will have been the third election I did not vote Republican. Sometimes it's felt lonely to hold the political views I do, but I guess there are a whole lot more of us out there than I realized. I'll never again vote Republican unless and until there is a candidate who doesn't wish to be the CEO of America, Inc. but the president of the United States of America.
