Thursday May 24, 2012 - 10:58 PM

If you're wondering how you and your dog are both getting fat, it could be as simple as canned foods.

“Ask. Believe. Receive.”
“Success will test a man’s mettle more than combat.”
“You get what you pay for.”
“Ask and Ye shall Receive”
All of these truisms say the same thing: when you get what you’re trying to get, you may not like what you get. In doing the Purpose Party thing, I’ve come to it with some built in theories and beliefs:

Americans would have gone to war on news that the Russkies messed with their election process. Nowadays, 65-millions of them cheer on their installed president. But the wall is coming down! We'll have to see how far this goes. The crest of fake news and damaging ads in our Facebook feeds may have had a heavy influence on swinging voters.
