  1. Reading all of these dreadful headlines, I'm left thinking, why don't we all move to Canada already? Or anywhere else where the smart people outnumber the [***inappropriate adjective deleted***] people at least 2-1?

    1. Agi Tater -- It's tempting, isn't it? Our wackos are a national embarrassment.

  2. Tim Lahaye lived waaay too long. The Red Hot preaching conference will only be that way if someone sets fire to it. And the Trump saga continues. Blecch!

      I hope videos of that vile conference are available on YouTube, if only to satisfy my morbid curiosity.
