Are We a Nation or Something Else?

I am getting dizzy! The world (at least the U.S.) is spinning out of control! At least it would seem that way when one considers that some of the bluer states in the country seem to be ignoring...

Trump Did Not Cause Florida Shooting (OR DACA, For That Matter!)

The left, as would be expected, has done nothing but make itself look stupid in the eyes of anyone with half a brain and willing to use it. Some leftists may have half of a brain, but few ever...

Who’s Really Creating the Gridlock Now?

Senator Chris Murphy (D – Conn) attended an event, “In Class; Not Cuffs,” at the Center for American Progress, a noticeably leftist think tank. It is extremely unfortunate that the entire premise...
