Incredibly Weak Men

    

Mona Charen, one of the better conservative writers, just wrote an excellent piece entitled, “GOP was Bluffing on Health Reforms.” Ms. Charen starts off with how we have the answer to the question:  Why did not the Republicans have a repeal and replace plan for Obamacare?  Obamacare was passed in 2010 and the leadership had […]

High Confidence

    

Forbes recently reported that consumer confidence was at a 16-year high.  They reasoned, “Consumer confidence is another one of those economic numbers which predicts our future for us.  A prediction which is a pretty good one too, for it’s self-fulfilling.  If consumer confidence is high, then people will spend their money.  And if people spend […]

A Stroll Down Memory Lane

    

An Orthopedic surgeon sent me this article, which needs to be passed on. Remember that time Donald Trump was paid $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow?  Oh no, wait…that was BILL CLINTON.

Stay the Course, Mr. President

    

Recently, William Galston wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Trump’s Tanking Approval Numbers,” in which he points out the president is not only in trouble within the beltway, but with supporters who question his fitness for office. The “never Trumpers” and Democrats have done an excellent job in raising doubts in peoples’ […]
