"Foreign Bride" websites not Human Trafficking but Human Fleecing


Back in 2011 I became increasingly frustrated with a number of late night commercials on ESPN promoting a Russian Dating website.  Tiring already of the pending coronation of King Obama II, I decided to embark on a definitely not-political piece.  What I found was stunning.  And life changing.

Voter's Washington Angst driving Trump, Carson numbers

Fred Weinberg's Penny Press this week will explain the angst among the voters as the reason why The Donald is leading the way in Repubican polling.  In short:  They're pissed off at the Washington Establishment.  I still wanna see Donald/Bernie.  And if not, then either Ben Carson or Carly would be fine with me.  Now if we could get like-minded, non Washington Elite Senators and Representatives then we would see true change in Washington.

Fun facts for the Chattering Class

*   This blog is not new.  It has been in existence before White Pine News was.  It's roots, in fact, go back to 2005 when I began writing for Fred Weinberg's Penny Press.  The first six years are lost to Go Daddy as their platform didn't allow exporting and given that most of it was contained in past issues of the Penny Press, I didn't bother.  (Note: I was hesitant to mention the Penny Press, since the last time it was mentioned, Fred got 37 signups for his e-blast, none of them were ever opened, and one person reported it as spam, despite their signing up for it and confirming it via email.  Go figure.)
