Written by Rob Rogers on .

With all of these Ice Bucket Challenge videos popping up to raise awareness for ALS, I couldn't help but think of the many buckets of cold water the republicans have poured on Obama.

One of the things that the tragic events in Ferguson, MO, has revealed is that small-town American police forces are now equipped for war. That will come in handy in the event that terrorists are sitting around plotting to invade small-town America.
