Osama Bin Laden did not have a bad year, given that he died 12/15/01 and had a very public funeral. The idea that he was recently killed is a total scam. The war room photos have been proven and admitted to be unrelated to the "killing."

If you want to know what happened, read Barry's

If Katy and Russell got married in India is it recognized here in the US? Are they legally married?

Russel is in recovery and always on the phone when he's photographed. With Katy, no, HIS SPONSOR. Her lifestyle isnt okay with AA or NA. He's a lush for the program even citing quotes from their Big Book in interviews. Weirdest and most religious cult that won't admit their brainwashing. Supreme Court says their a religion!! Im glad Katy doesnt have to put up with a serenity prayer anymore! Truly sad how a cult continually breaks relationships, families and lives apart. Do the research, AA & NA kills as much as it saves, but they won't publish that right? They just say keep coming back keep coming back. No "spiritual awakening" and classes of "rigorous honesty" will save anyone. I welcome anyone to quote the Big Book. Thats all "addicts" have to use. ANY PROGRAM/CLASS/PERSON/"HIGHER POWER" that asks you to relinquish your right of free will....you might as well be dead

Poor Dax, Harvey is a bitch, knowing he not feeling well do. It's not right to put your employees down like Harvey does. No wonder he has a high turnover of help.

also thanks Harvey for recommending The Outliars to read on your live show earlier this year. It helped me realize that I was born about 5 years late to do anything I really wanted to do in life.
