This Is What We’ve Been Waiting For…Maybe

  The Alabama governor has ordered the flag to be removed, and statues of Confederate leaders and founding fathers are being debated to come down all over these United States of America. This may not be the violent revolution that some have called for, and is certainly not the “quiet...

Let Me Blow Your Mind: The Civil War Was About Slavery

  Falsehood and historical illiteracy are inexcusable in the age of information that we are currently living in. For some reason, people have a knack for believing what they want to believe. This ever changing reality always meets their standards and convinces them they are in the right irrespective of...

Nikki Haley Shows The GOP How To Handle Race

  In Nikki Haley’s speech at the South Carolina statehouse calling for the removal of the Confederate flag, we saw the birth of a GOP Presidential contender for 2020. Young, female, and a minority (in spite of previous proclamations). There’s a big difference between a flag and a monument. The...

The Apprentice Season 11: The Donald’s Primary

You’re Hired! How To Make Trump President

  From his hair to his “efforts” to unearth President Obama’s birth certificate last election, it’s easy to use Donald Trump as a political punching bag. We know that his conglomerate has been in bankruptcy in 2009, 2004, 2001 and 1991. He’s unqualified (never held office in any capacity before),...

TPA

Why the Great Fear of TPA?

  Although House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi led the charge to vote against the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), a provision of the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that Democrats normally support, the failure of TAA on the floor only delayed the final Congressional vote of TPA until next week; thus, not...
