Caught My Eye…

Welcome to another exciting edition of “Caught My Eye!”

In case you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a quick look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week.

Today I write about sending letters to save nukes, Walsh vs. Obama, Imperial President, Tinfoil Hats, the Well-being index, Ted Nugent, plus we have TWO winners who are Making Montana Proud!

I imagine we’ll hear President Barack Obama talk about guns, immigration, jobs and the economy, education, campaign finance, the sequester, Afghanistan, veterans, and much more (but probably not about Zombies).

By the way, classic rock fans will be happy to hear that REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent are kicking off “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” tour in April! Par-tee!

Members of Congress can invite one person to attend the SOTU. CNN has the guest list. I was not invited… Continue reading
