Journal Journal: KFC Opens Itself to New Conspiracies 1

Listening to WMAL this AM I was informed that Kentucky Fried Chicken has changed its logo for the fourth time in fifty years.

Journal Journal: Mysterious Future: Bush Rains on Election 1

Montag Political Newswire

7 November 2006

With the entire east coast of the USA engulfed in rain or dreary weather, some political experts suspect weather control on the part of President Bush.

Several studies have shown that rain suppresses Democrat turnout by several percent. Somehow, an unprescidented November rainstorm has come to the east in November, on election day.

To be or not to be, that is the bottom line.
