Tebow has made a public spectacle of his religiosity. Genuflecting on the field in a move that has become known as “Tebowing“. Filming a documentary about his biblical indoctrination as a home-schooled boy by [...]
I put together this connection today.
The Occupy protesters are The 99%, the Majority; the Russian word for majority is большинство, which is the source of the term [...]

I have no idea who candidate Joe Kennedy is, but by standing for Libertarian and free-market ideals, he stands in contrast to the stagnation in Washington D.C.
