If the mainstream media had their way they would lead everyone to think that President Trump does not have the support of one single woman in the United States.

The situation with Bill Cosby when it first came to light likely hit a lot of people like a ton of bricks. For what seemed like forever, he was one of those people who was considered an elder statesman that you could always go to for a wise opinion. As it turns out, he was …

In the part of the country that I live in there are a lot of year round campgrounds due to the weather and it’s fascinating to see these little micro communities when you drive past them. Bear in mind, we’re not talking about some run down trailer park here. We’re more or less talking about …

Special education teachers are the type of folks that just do not get enough credit. Being a teacher in any capacity is hard enough but when you juggle the degree of difficulty with the difficulties that the students themselves might have you have someone that might have to have nerves of steel on some days …

One of the more maddening things about the border wall debate is the way that liberals seem to want to make the whole issue appear. They do not want it for one moment to look like it’s an issue of border security which it happens to be. It’s like if we were to pass a …

There are a couple of things that can cause a business that would otherwise stay in one location until the end of time decide to fold their tent and place the operation somewhere else. One of them would be if there is no longer a market for something in an area that this business provides. …

The recent scam that was concocted between a homeless man and a Pennsylvania couple to effectively bilk money out of people using a story that the homeless man gave a woman his last twenty dollars to buy gas is something that has left a bad taste in people’s mouths. It’s also one of the reasons …

Want to tell you all a little story about words because at the end of the day words are one of the few things that cannot be taken away from us. You take away phones and every other method of communication we have, we still have words. That being said, there are some words that …

For those that don’t quite remember who Christopher Steele is, he is the British spy who was the one that wrote the horrible piece of fiction that later came to be known as the Russian dossier. This bad creative writing assignment later came to be known as one of the catalysts for the scam of …

To be perfectly honest, even when I was move inclined to watch the NFL I was never one to jump for joy over the Super Bowl Halftime Show. That was usually the time that I was taking a slice of the pizza that we ordered earlier in the day and reheating it in the toaster …

It used to be a thing in America that we knew who to leave in and who to leave out of certain arguments. For example, there is a member of my family that I have not spoken to in several years due to a horrible falling out that has children I still send a Christmas …

When liberals hear us talk about the fact that there are illegal immigrants flooding our country, they think that we are using some kind of crude hyperbole that a circus promoter might use when trying to get people to see the lion tamer. Hardly the case. What is happening at so many border crossings in …

California is one of those states whee it just seems like they couldn’t come up with a good idea if they tried. There are homeless camps the size of some small towns out there and instead of trying to solve that problem they are coming up with even more ludicrous regulations than the ones they …

The Clinton family likes to have as many of the illegal things that they have done not be covered in the press or generally be seen by anyone.

We have all said things when we were younger that we likely wish we could take back. That’s part of growing up is changing the bad things about you and trying not to do those things again. When you are younger, sometimes you just don’t know what is something that might not be a good …

It is always said that when someone is the director of something or the head of something at a given time that a member of that organization does something horrible the head person has to deal with it. To put it in an everyday context, if someone at a fast food restaurant messes up your …

Every once in  while every team needs some kind of a shakeup so you can get the deficiencies sorted out. Look at it this way, there are very few baseball teams where a person stays with them for an entire career. Now, President Trump did hire the best people. That being said there are probably …
