What Happens When Heroin Comes To You?

  Rising heroin use in many conservative states have caused House Republicans to ease longstanding opposition to federal funding in support of needle exchange programs. The House bill taking shape now would still bar federal dollars from buying sterile needles or syringes, but officials could use federal grant money to...

Looks Like A Bush: Jeb! Is In

  The Republican “autopsy” after the 2012 election suggested Mitt Romney’s line about self-deportation was his downfall. It was recommended that the GOP promote more Hispanic immigration as well as the standard pro-business agenda. Additionally, Romney’s background, demeanor and secretly taped comment about the 47% signaled to America’s working and...

Trump

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),...

Why the Great Fear of TPA?

What Is It That You Think You Know?

  What is it that you think you know about yourself? I would classify myself as a libertarian-leaning liberal. I believe in tolerance for different people and different lifestyles, and don’t believe that my standards of morality or safety should be enforced by government. While I believe in personal responsibility...

Why We Don’t Care Our Politicians Are Dishonest

  In a poll of registered voters, 53 – 39 said Hillary Clinton is not honest and trustworthy. They also say 60 – 37 percent that she has strong leadership qualities. A May 21st Pew Research poll reveals only 23% of Republicans believe the GOP Congress is keeping the promises...

In Public, Your Feelings Are Worth Squat

  Your personal space ends where my nose begins. No one is marching into homes initiating conversations about things citizens don’t like. Outside the realm of your property, your level of “butthurt” (these kids) over other people’s choices matters not. Things are changing due to social media and everyone’s feelings...
