Walking and Chewing Gum at the Same Time

Michael Tomasky wasn’t pulling any punches in his latest piece in The Daily Beast. In fact, he cut right to the chase. If Democrats don’t get “much tougher” on Trump and his scandals, they are going to lose the midterms. He explains, Imagine that Hillary Clinton were president and the Republicans were investigating the Clinton Foundation, and she ordered an

America’s Soul Sickness

“History will not look kindly upon those elected officials who failed to act in the face of repeated mass murders of our children. Spare us your thoughts and prayers and do your jobs.” – Mike Rawlings, Dallas Mayor I couldn’t have said it better myself. Except I would’ve expanded my ire to include the millions of
