Here we go:

– America’s Middle Class
– President Obama
– 93 Million Americans Not Working
– Clay Aiken
– Senator Mark Pryor
– Donald Trump
– New York Times
– Hillary Clinton
– Climate Change

Best Lines:

  • “An NPR business reporter said there’s a special place in hell reserved for Donald Trump. NPR liberal listeners were outraged — not about the Trump comment, but because someone at NPR might actually believe in heaven and hell.”
  • “The New York Times is under fire for running fake stories that are actually advertisements — as opposed to their other fake stories which are actually campaign ads for Hillary Clinton.”

Positivity: NBA star offers moving tribute to God and his mother while receiving league MVP award

Filed under: Positivity — Tom @ 6:00 am

Kevin Durant is the NBA’s MVP this year.

He’s also the real deal as a son, teammate, and ambassador for this sport (HT Glenn Beck).

Have a hanky handy, and watch.

As he struggled to keep his composure, Durant singled out God, every player on his team (the video shows only his thanks to a player who just arrived and Russell Westbrook), and his amazing mom (“You’re the real MVP”) for thanks.
