Bernie Madoff swindled everyone. Here’s the irony of it: He’s in prison sweeping floors for 14 cents a day . . . that’s not as much as it sounds.

There’s a group of people who do not believe Barack Obama was born in the United States, and therefore should not be president. They’re called “birthers.” Are they aware that Joe Biden would be the president if Obama steps down?
They believe he was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii. I always thought he was born in a manger in Jerusalem.
