I’m with Ralph Nader on the $700,000,000,000.00 Bailout

Part I:

Part II:

Part III:

I’m with Ralph Nader because he is the only presidential candidate showing real leadership by talking sense about the trillion dollar bailout.

History of Thanksgiving, Part II

The first Thanksgiving was made possible because the Pilgrims ended their experiment with socialism and embraced private farming.
John Stossel explains:
