    watch glen beck or fox news. they are the only ones that will give you the story. it won't hurt you and you may learn something. now i am not suggesting that you get your news and information from just one place. i am saying that you will get an education you can think about from watching and comparing. be open minded, at least until you realize the far left is a corrupt bunch of clowns! the one thing that obama just might do though is solve our immigration problem. he is on track to screw this place up so much that no one will want to come here. lol.
