Dennis Hastert deserves his punishment and a whole lot more

Dennis Hastert deserves his punishment and a whole lot more
Dennis Hastert got 15 months in prison for taking money out of his own bank account.  That’s a bit of an oversimplification, but, on the surface, the punishment seems to fit the crime. Some things however, are not quite what they seem. Hastert, former Republican Speaker of the House is also, according to Judge Thomas... Read more »

Lenny Tie Folder has fallen and he can't get up

Lenny Tie Folder has fallen and he can't get up
Lenny Tie Folder is either an avid reader or just a guy with too much time on his hands.  I’m inclined to suspect the latter.

The police initially said that he broke a window... Read more »

The more I drink, the more I drink (From Blake Shelton's The More I Drink)

I’ve never been a big drinker, although I do a make a stab at it from time to time. Let’s face it, we all like to party a bit and no one really trusts a teetotaler. Serious drinking, though is an endeavor. It takes determination, stamina and commitment. You could say it takes a village.... Read more »
