A new poll shows just how dumb & uneducated the Tea Party people really are.
Of course the GOP is caving on its "demand" for Obama's Immigration order to be defunded. What did you expect? Did you really think this nutbag party has ANY ideas?
The real reason why Wal-Mart is hiking wages for its employees, and it's neither pressure from citizens, or because they feels it is "right."

Dave was born in 1965 in Lowell Massachusetts, where he still resides. As a young child, the television show “In Search Of” with Leonard Nemoy sparked his interest in Cryptozoology. After a longtime interest and reading information on the internet in the 90’s his eyes were opened to the fact that it wasn’t just a West Coast phenomena. The book Monsters of the North Woods by Paul Bartholomew really hit home and he realized that New York and New England has had a long history amongst native people and early explorers involving the Sasquatch in the Northeast.
In 2005 Dave went from being an avid reader to someone who wanted to be more hands on so he attended a BFRO expedition in Whitehall, NY. After talking to several local eye witnesses, one being a police officer, about their experiences, he was completely hooked. This started his love of the outdoors having never experienced hiking and camping growing up in a city environment. As an adult Dave was able to travel the East Coast, where he started investigating the sighting reports in his area.
After the BFRO Expedition he joined the NESRA Research group and attended several expeditions with them in the years since. One of them being part of the group that was used in a Monsterquest episode “Bigfoot in New York”. In 2008, Dave attended one of the first expeditions that included several different research groups of the East Coast in Virginia. These groups investigated continuously for two weeks straight. Since then, he has been to the West Coast multiple times. Dave has made great friends from his time in California and Washington State as well as many more all across the country. Since April 2012 he has been researching with Squatchachusetts where he is currently active in Massachusetts.
