The Medal Given for Dog Piss:

I Blame Obama:
The birth rate for American teens fell to 29.4 births per 1,000 in 2012 — a six percent drop from 2011, alone. Data shows it fell for all ethnic groups.... A lot of the progress has been made in the last few years. The birth
 rate in 2007 was 41.5 births per 1,000 teenage girlsfalling almost 30 percent in the last five years.

Processed Food Is What Made Man
