    One of hip hop's living legends and now gospel artist Snoop Dogg appeared on Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club" over a week ago to promote his game show on TBS called "The Joker's Wild." While there, the 46-year-old shared a Tupac story that gave me all the feels.

    This politically correct stuff is getting out of hand this holiday season. Oops better say Christmas season or the extreme Right will be upset. The P.C. forces and some on the Left are trying to squeeze the enjoyment out of Christmas’s traditions. The newset examples this year are: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving being declared racist.
