To all the critiques. ..do you understand networking? I want my leaders to be visible on national stage. As a business owner I travel at times to places and events that can provide visibility to others.

From all that could have happened with the tax money this is one of the most useful way if spending money.

hi, who designs set to put head inside the bold O for Obama 50 years anniverary party against the southern racist democrats? Did the big O mention the KkK sympathizers Senators Byrd and Gore (Al Gore's daddy) try to block the legislation? Thanks to Republican powerhouse Martin Luther King Jr (yes you would never know he lived and died a republican) and his fellow republicans in the house and senate the legislation passed.

Great piece by the Tribune's +Courtney Crowder.
 
Check out my newest piece on the wonderful actress Claudia Lee. The 17-year-old Indiana native is currently starring on Fox’s funny (and very underrated) 1991-set sitcom, “Surviving Jack.” You may also know her from “Hart of Dixie.” She’s a mature, well-spoken girl who commands the screen every time she’s on it.

I don't feel sad. They are despicable scum! These people are the freeloaders, not those who are really trying to make a living by having 1/2/3 jobs and still need government assistance just to survive.

Steeling from the food pantry - how low, seriously!
