    This actually happened about a month ago and is a good discussion on its own but what's even more revealing is a recent interview where Sophia apparently threatens the existence of humans. For those not familiar with Sophia here she is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8Ox6H64yu8...

    And so it begins. The King of America is simply going to use his magic pen and grant the illegal immigrants full status as citizens. Isn't it wonderful. Just think of all the money we taxpayers will save when Obama finally just disbands Congress and we no longer have to pay their...
