HostGator Web Hosting

HostGator Web Hosting Sucks. It sucked in 2014 when i leased a VPS Server from HostGator and in 2016 it appears nothing has changed.

President Obama’s Last State Of The Union Address

Here is President Obama’s last state of the union address video in full. We also have a link to the full text transcript courtesy of time.com. I gotta hand it to president Obama – that man can talk.

Donald Trump was set up and asked an out of line baited question by Fox News anchor and 1st debate moderator Megyn Kelly! It’s obvious that the GOP wants Donald Trump to shut up.
