Because he’s a street fighter. Because he’s a patriot. Because …

Democrats Ruin the World (f-bombs included!)

Picture this. Every time you leave your teenage kids home alone for a weekend, you come back to stink-eyes from your neighbors, a living room that’s a sea of empty beer cans, a yard filled with cigarette butts, and a pregnant cat. Pretty soon, you’d stop leaving those kids to their own devices, wouldn’t you? If …

The Only Rule of Engagement Will Be Victory

Why I’m Changing My Mind About Impeaching Obama

I think impeachment is a dangerous tool and should never be used for political …

Russia's Ukraine Adventure

When you’ve stated your opinion or belief about something important, do you defend your belief to the hilt? Or do you immediately begin questioning your own conclusions? Most of my life, I would defend my opinion to the point of losing friends. Even if I was wrong. Even I knew I was wrong. I’m a coward, …
