Hey parents! Are you worried about paying for your child’s college education? Don’t give it another thought… Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) can’t understand why a “young person should have to pay” for a college education. Seriously Charlie? It may have something to do with needing to find the money to pay the professors, janitors, security guards, cafeteria workers, and administration. Or with having to buy land to build buildings and buy computers or books or anything else that’s needed. In Charlie Rangel’s world everything is free and nobody wants to be compensated for their work… IDIOT.

It may look like the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to overthrow the military run government of Egypt, but the reality is, the Muslim Brotherhood is focusing their firepower on Egypt’s Christian population.

It’s not just Egypt either, Islam is working hard to wipe out any remaining pockets of Christianity in the Muslim world.
