We visited on Thanksgiving and then Read more [...] Continue reading →

HIPAA and How it Affects Parenting

So the most effective pathway is to declare war against marriage and the family in order to completely destroy a society. The strategy to destroy the American family began Read more [...] Continue reading →

Baby Snatched from Mom for Single Medical Marijuana Offense
