Christopher Peruzzi 2
What we’ve been waiting for. The biggest item on my psychic merchandise wish list has always been a tarot deck that truly speaks to me. No, that’s not what I mean. When the tarot deck actually starts talking to you aloud, you need to get up from your chair, back away slowly, and run as […]

Trump has been in the spotlight for a long time. Long before Donald John Trump threw his hat into the political arena or became the star of his own reality show, he had been in the public lexicon for decades.
