Honest Paws: Why President Biden's Dog Keeps Acting Out

News of President Biden's dog having a rough adjustment to life in the White House came out last week, with the information that the dog bit someone inside the home, and did his outside business, well, inside. Only 3 Presidents (including Donald Trump) did not have a White House dog. So what's up? One vet gave us her opinion. "It’s not surprising that the Bidens’ dogs are having a bit of trouble adjusting to life in the White House. In fact, it would be more surprising if the dogs weren’t bothered at all.

The State of Maryland Opens "Special COVID19 Vaccine Clinic" Just for Latinos

While many Maryland residents wait patiently to receive their government-funded COVID-19 vaccine, the state’s two biggest counties—both illegal immigrant sanctuaries—have launched a “special clinic” to inoculate 600 Latinos a week. The exclusive operation will be stationed at the Adventist HealthCare facility in Takoma Park, which is situated in Montgomery County, Maryland’s most populous.
