The Year in Crazy: 2014

2014 saw everything from a mooching rancher and his well-armed militia buddies fighting off the federal government to the killing of an unarmed black man sparking a nationwide conversation on race.  Corporations went from having free speech to now having freedom of religion, too.  Money continued to pour into our elections and campaign advertising continued on it’s downward (or upward, depending on your perspective) spiral.  There were way too many guns, bombs and crazies in 2014, a trend that will probably continue in 2015.
