  1. I hit 12 of 12….I don’t want to brag, but….wait, ok, yes I do lol.

    But seriously, the more knowledge of current events out there, the better we can do for the country. I think that the recent few years have really shocked some folks into awareness…resulting in a surge of common sense this past fall. Hopefully the common sense can continue.
