Democrats and Voting Rights

Posted · Add Comment

I received the email pictured above on Sunday from the DNC. I’m on their mailing list so I can see what they’re all riled up about on any particular day. Sunday was Rep. John Lewis and voting rights. Can you identify the problem? Yep, he thinks “every person in this country has the right to […]

The mask is off. The Democratic party is for abortion on demand, up to and past the point of birth. It is simply infanticide.

This makes me think that most of the migrants are of French extraction: De Gaulle […]

We’re doing the shutting down the government thing again? President Trump met today in the White House with Democrat leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer to talk about the president’s priorities and the long and short of it came down to this: If Congress (one-half of which will be run by the Democrats) […]

Election Aftermath

Election aftermath 2018

The 2018 election aftermath is a flat, dry wasteland with the sun-bleached skulls of of the defeated dotting the desolate landscape. At least, that’s how it seems to be portrayed on Twitter. Predictions: Correct! My predictions from election day—which were really nothing more than the conventional wisdom—turned out to be correct. With a handful of […]
