Re: OBAMA vs BOEHNER???

The riots in Greece and Spain were a cakewalk compared to how the masses would be in this country if essentials as Social security and Medicare were totally cut. Then again, maybe I'm being a drama queen and not putting much faith in the strength of the individual. The tea partiers (rich people) ar...

Well, the good news is that we're back on the road with Helloween. And Jörg Michael is back in his drum chair after his brush with death. The bad news is that Timo Kotipelto caught some sort of bacterial infection. We suspect it was something from the backstage food in December, but we don't know. T...
