Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

Sharpie, Get a grip guy, these bastards needed killing and having renounced their citizenship, they are entitled to no more rights than any other terrorist scum. The predator program is a very effective and along with the intel recovered from the raid on the ben laden compound I hope that there many more. Who's side are you on

Bilbray for City Council! He doesn't run away from issues. He attacks them with common sense solutions. Cheryl Quinones for South Bay Union Board of Trustees! Her dedication to the best interests of our kids in unmatched. Khari for Patch Editor of the Year! iB Patch has been the go to website for information during this election cycle.
