Wilson Gets Marked as a Racist


I must be open about my bias. Woodrow Wilson High School constantly beat my high school in sports. They even had a swimmer that went to the Olympics. Knowing that this school must be brought low warms my heart. I wish I was around my old friends so I could razz them. Come to think of it the other strong sports school was Abraham Lincoln High School. :-)


Things are Great!

I know I don’t live in Oregon but things are wonderful here. People get along and cooperate with one another. They seem to have put aside that whole city destroying air raid thing and now flock to Costco.

Fact Checking

Due to the recent decision by Twitter to fact check the President’s tweets. I thought it might be nice to review Ratburger.org’s policy.
