We need to warn you – today’s edition of the Joke of the Day has language that some may not like!


"Nothing is so good for an ignorant man as silence; and if he was sensible of this he would not be ignorant."

   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The United States says that the Islamic State – ISIS or ISIL, is the biggest threat we have faced in years. ISIS occupies part of Syria and Iraq. Great Britain agrees, but says it will not work with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to defeat ISIS in Syria.  Should the United States also refuse to work with Assad when it fights ISIS in Syria?



There are competing lawsuits over wild horses that live on 2 million acres of public and private land in southwest Wyoming. The Rock Springs Grazing Association won a court order telling the BLM to remove about 800 horses from the land. A coalition of environmental groups is suing to block the move, saying the roundup would violate several federal laws, and that it places the interest of ranchers above those of the general public.  Should the wild horses be removed from the land?
