Of Course, You Realize, This Means War

10:02 AM 03/31/2017

I’m betraying my age by admitting that I watched Bugs Bunny cartoons during my childhood. (I should say reruns of Bugs Bunny cartoons; I’m not that old).

The Nation Was Divided Well Before Trump’s Travel Ban

2:58 PM 01/31/2017

Leftists continue to ramp up their campaign to disrupt the country, the presidency, and the life of the average American. The executive actions taken by Donald Trump, a rare president who follows through on campaign promises, have come at a dizzying pace. Activists are left with hard decisions about which issue to protest and what public space to block on a given day.
