Top Supporters of Rick Perry Create Nonprofit To Promote His Ideas Nationally. One of the supporters who has started Americans for Economic Freedom is local rich fella Brint Ryan.

I know what I said, but we need the pig blood people.” He ends the call and drops the phone onto the empty box of a personal pan pizza. “May God have mercy on us all.”

Rangers Come Back To Win Another Game I Didn’t Watch. It was against the Brewers and they won, let’s see here, yes, 5-4. They are in first place? Yes. First.
