11/10/11. President Obama's administration is getting ready to tax Christmas Trees by an additional .15 cents this holiday season. Fake trees v. live trees is the issue with President Obama's administration. I can't believe that the First Lady will allow her husband to continue on this horrible/crazy path. Michelle Obama seems to me to have the brains of the family. More to come, stay tune.

11/03/11. Hermann Cain, Republican Presidential candidate has another women that complained about his sexual advances back in the 1990's when he was President of the powerful National Restaurant Association. This is the third women who has been identified by the press that was sexually stalked/sexually harrassed by Hermann Cain. The other two women were paid a years salary back in the 1990's by the National Restaurant Association to keep quiet. Hush money. The third women did not complain to her superiors because she was scared of loosing her job. She needed the pay check back then. How can Hermann Cain think he could run on the Republican ticket for President of the United States of America with such accusations following him. He said he forgot. He said he did not know the details of the Hush Money. He was President of the National Restaurant Association when the Hush Money was offered to the young ladies. The American people need a person in the Oval Office that has some integrity and a good mind. At least a person who can remember important subjects. Maybe the Chinese or Russian governments would love to have a Hermann Cain in the White House, but for me, "FORGET ABOUT IT! Give me a person/candidate with Executive Experience that is leading a State to PROSPERITY. Am I asking too much! Don't families and the workers laid off in America deserve that. Not a clown pretending to have the answers. James Liceaga, YYYC Senior Editor.
