  • Next thing you know she’ll be hanging around some seedy Washington think tank.

  • No wait!


    She’s being exploited by one of them evil, secret conspiracies to steal money from indigent, undocumented immigrants and single parents’ children.

    Next she’ll sell out to FOXNEWS . . .

  • Even though I have an econ degree, if I see the letters GDI I think of the Global Defense Initiative from Command and Conquer…

  • Thanks to my son’s interest, I have all the games in the Command and Conquer series.
