You're Either With Trump, Or Against Him

So U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks Donald Trump's comments about the Mexican heritage of a federal judge hearing a civil case against him are an example of "textbook racism," but he won't rescind his endorsement of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee?

Censorship Is More Dangerous Than Hate Speech

Someone needs to tell Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, YouTube and the European Union that the only way to stop a bad guy's speech is to counter it with a good guy's speech, not censor it.

While traveling across the country with your kids this summer, be sure to buckle-up and do your best to overlook all the potholes and crumbling bridges out there.

Hard to Believe It's Come Down to Hillary or Trump

Every four years our nation's electoral eccentricities escalate exponentially and people throw up their hands and shout, "you know, every election cycle is wacky, but especially this one."

Incredibly, there are more than 102 million people who are either unemployed or are no longer looking for work.
