    Next, we discuss American Soldiers on the ground in eastern Europe, is this a new and improved TOUGH President Obama? Or is this an other paper tiger? We also discuss the Presidents visit to Japan, along with his TOUGH words on the Japanese islands that the Chinese are trying to claim. 


    Finally, we discuss the proposed Cove Point LNG Teminal. One of the biggest opposition argument is spellbounding, hint, we learn where the money trail goes. Also, we prove why enviormentalists and animal rights activists shoud hate each other, all in good fun, of course!
