    Finley news The way it’s supposed to be reported, I was so sick of the bland generic news reporting that deflected the real issue’s away from the American Citizens…I have over the past few months looking up past episode’s…I was in shock and full of excitement as I watched all of you debate over issue’s…You will have a new supporter in myself and my children are also watching thank you for giving all of us the knowledge and guts to take our Country back….ps…love the shirts have to get some…to another 20 years
