U.S. Vice President Joe Biden spent Monday in Scranton.

Biden spoke at the 100th anniversary banquet Greater Pittston Area Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, where he said that Irish-Americans "are the most independent people on earth,” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Biden, 71, is one of Pennsylvania’s native sons — he was born in Scranton and lived there until he was 10, when his family moved to Delaware.

Next on the agenda for Biden is a trip to Poland; he was scheduled to depart later Monday.

Well they are certainly a political party that includes fundamental extremists driven by religious dogma.

All three of these presidents are on the same political paradigm. Both are the same side of the coinThey all want New World Order (NWO). The more I find out, the more surprised I get. And, as far as religion goes, it should be kept out of government. Period. Taliban, no, I don't think so. They are made, in part, of.our own tyrannical government. I said, in part! Pathetic. Hey, I don't believe in party lines!! Except telephones!!
