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.
