Barack Obama doesn’t see America the way you do

Barack Obama, hailing from Kenya – if only for college application purposes – and growing up in Indonesia, has always had something of an outsider’s perspective of the United States. Even when he lived in the United States, he lived … Continue reading

The GOP leadership must be using Common Core math to do the calculations on Immigration… and the result is exactly what you’d expect.

Anyone who cares about prosperity has to ask themselves, just how stupid are the people running the Republican Party? One has to wonder, do they even bother to look beyond NBC, the New York Times and TIME magazine for their … Continue reading
