Hurricane Maria made landfall three weeks ago, but Trump is already complaining that Puerto Rico is tying up resources.

Why WordPress? Why did you remove the feature that showed what days had posts scheduled? I used that feature extensively.
Ugh... Satire is hard. You know your delivery is wrong when you get the opposite reaction you are wanting. Maybe I should stick to parody.
The way I see it. Having a PowerPoint presentation blow up on you is a rite of passage.
There is no single education policy more harmful than test-based accountability. The idea goes like this: We need to make sure public schools actually teach children, and the best way to do that is with high stakes standardized testing. It starts from the assumption that the problems with our school system are all service-based. Individual... Continue Reading →
Last Tuesday, Democrat Jon Ossoff was defeated by the alt-right Republican Karen Handel by an almost four point margin. The truth of the matter was that this race was truly a bellwether of what to expect for 2018. The good news for Democrats was that this was a district that should not have been competitive...

My wife was informed that DCS was going to go forward with reunification of the toddler with her biological mother. The reason was that she has been clean for a whole month. Sure, let's ignore that full year before that she wasn't. I am just shaking my head of this stupidity.
There we have it folk. That $20 billion that was calculated with fuzzy logic government math is closer to $70 billion using real math. The top Democrat on the Senate homeland security committee has a question for the department: Could the President's border wall cost nearly $70 billion?

Since it is no longer politically correct for a victor in a war to leave the loser in shambles, the United States has been picking up the tab in rebuilding Afghanistan (despite the fact that the people in the country were harboring Bin Laden, a wanted terrorist). However, even this just boggles the mind. The... Continue Reading →
After all of the so-called "gotcha" questions by questionable moderators, the Republican candidates got together to come up with a solution. By Jove, they have one... Carson’s campaign is convening a meeting of various campaigns on Sunday night. The campaigns will discuss Carson’s proposal, which includes “a minimum of five minutes for opening and closing...

Back in 2008, candidate Obama spoke out about fighting unnecessary wars. He even cited his opposition to the Iraq ware as an indication of his sound judgment. He was even awarded a Nobel peace prize. So, here we are 7 years later. Last month, the president said he would keep 5,500 ground troops in Afghanistan... Continue Reading →
If it was, it appears to be failing. Buoyed by what most analysts proclaimed a victory in the first Democratic Presidential nomination wannabes debate, an 11-hour Benghazi hearing that even conservatives now believe was a Halloween-monster-sized mistake for Congressional Republicans, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going into full gear as the (largely)...

It seems like in the last couple of decades, voting has become an exercise of holding one's nose and voting for the lesser of two evils. On one side we have a party that rather than try to fix the problems that government cause, they create a new government program (which then makes things worse).... Continue Reading →
It seems that Trump and Bush have been going back and forth on GW's handling of 9/11. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump once again provoked a tit-for-tat row on Friday by saying former president George W. Bush must share some of the blame for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Let's look at some facts. GW... Continue Reading →
