This week Republicans made a Pledge to America in a bid to win votes in the mid-term elections.

And it’s another glorious day in Upstate New York (but only for a moment; Accuweather sez that the last half of August and the first half of September is going to be nasty..just in time for the munchkins to go back to school in classrooms with no AC.
