The Libertarian Lass, Gayle Falkenthal John Nienstedt Leave a Comment

Originally published on the Competitive Edge Research & Communication website Dan McAllister seems to have a nasty job.

Voice of San Diego devoted not just one but two sessions “focused on mindfulness, consciousness and reflexivity” in an effort to relax the electorate.  The Washington Post recently reported that there’s an …
