What’s Congress’ reaction to 10,000 children in detention centers?  “Let’s go home for the 4th of July”
For a moment, imagine that you take your family out of the country, and when you cross the border the government takes you from your children.

Why gun control loses every shootout on Capitol Hill and five things we need to do to win

Why gun control loses every shootout on Capitol Hill and five things we need to do to win
An old cliché says, “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.” The way gun control advocates are going about changing the law reminds me of Harrison Ford in the movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” In the movie, Indiana Jones played by Mr. Ford confronts a swordsman.

The Government nears a two year deal on spending, wait, I mean six weeks

The Government nears a two year deal on spending, wait, I mean six weeks
The snollygosters in Congress are preparing another last-minute spending bill, that kicks the can down the road for six weeks. What’s a snollygoster?

The Skinny Repeal Bill is Dead and so is The GOP
The skinny repeal bill is dead.  Three Republicans, including Senators McCain, Murkowski, and Collins voted against the measure.

“Mr. President, abandon this wall.” Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan should be shouting the words President Reagan used in Berlin to challenge Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down The Wall.  The words need to be a spoken as a challenge to the Bigot-In-Chief in the Oval Office to abandon his folly about a wall...
