What a great way to end the day, seeing this pardon. Having attended Mannings trial and seeing how fragile Chelsea was..this brought tears to my eyes. This is a great thing Obama is doing. The American taxpayers should be grateful to Manning for exposing the criminal behavior of some military through the released movie “Collateral Damage” that went viral on the Internet.

Finally the Stock Market is being investigated. With all the shenanigans on Wall St. it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out.

And, while you’re at it, explain what bribery is so our politicians can understand what’s so wrong with buying politicians…..when that investigation finally comes knocking!
