Native Americans Now Targeting Statues for Destruction
Everybody wants to get in on the act. We're talking about another day, another cause célèbre for social justice warriors.

USA added $1 TRILLION in debt in 6 months... It has taken a little more than six months for the U.S. national debt to grow by a trillion dollars, a quick clip that has little precedent over the nation's recent history. Last week, the debt hit $21 trillion for the first time, rising from the $20 trillion mark it notched on Sept. 8.
