President Barack Obama announced a prisoner of war exchange this past week. A U.S. military deserter was swapped for five top level terrorists! This reminds me of a story about a farmer named Barack. Barack just happened to raise melons as his occupation. All of his melons were sold at a certain market. When Barack was at the market, he would do something that most farmers would not do. Barack would buy one left over, cracked and moldy melon from the market. In return, Barack would also give the market five of his very best melons for free!
President Obama should stick to only helping Michelle in her garden.

Editors note: Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was not classified a deserter by the military after two investigations of his departure from his unit. Another investigation will be conducted in the future.
