Well, I see that HLN, which I refer to the Heifers Lascivious News channel, has once again stirred up the rabble, resulting in pandering politicians creating yet another ridiculous law. Beware, taxpayer:  Anytime you see a law named after someone or something — ergo, Megan’s Law or the Patriot Act — get ready to give it up. This new one gives the co-conspirator $25,000 for every year they have been abducted after eight years. How they came up with that figure, one can only surmise.

Editor’s note: The recipe published is exactly what the author provided.

One of my favorite fast-food stores has really disappointed me.
