An untold number of “zombies” are coming to a counterterrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares. It’s no joke, they will act out a very possible scenario with a wounded VIP… it’s just that because it’s Halloween and all, the security personnel […]

A new campaign ad features “future” kids singing about the post-apocalyptic waste land that the world “became” after Mitt Romney was elected, with the kids blaming their parents for voting for him.
