    Sorry but I don't put any faith in what is reported any more. Especially with the liberal media feeding the news, there is always an agenda hidden inside any story. "If it bleeds, it leads" and if it makes Barry look good you will hear about it.What happened to the 93 million unemployed? Food stamp recipients at an all-time high, the National Debt through the roof and Obama Care killing the full time job market. "TAKE A HIKE"!!!
