I get a kick out of Glenn Beck, but Sarah Palin from Alaska has announced she is no longer running for president.
What a class act she is. Two words for her: Cleaning service. She should open a one and call it a day. All she talks about are tax bills and scares people to death…or aims to anyway. Discussing taxes and “fiscal discipline”, Miss Palin makes the simple complicated:

But, I would love to know if the U.S. Census surveyed how wealthy Americans accumulated their money. Go watch Gordon Gekko in Wall Street. They took it out of the next guys ass most of the time. “It is a zero sum game. Someone wins someone loses.
