Any student of modern American culture knows the awesomeness that is Chuck…no, not that Chuck, I’m talking about Chuck Woolery the retired game show host and patriot. Chuck has put out a number of videos that are must see internet T.V. His videos are insightful, funny, a little corny… some times all three at once. Some are on topics of enormous importance to our freedoms and financial security…some are commentaries on modern society. Check out Save Us Chuck Woolery and what Chuck has to say on topics as diverse as:
Those Pesky Mayans!
