There are some strong feelings out there about Hillary Clinton, particularly since she announced during the debate that abortion was good to go at any time during the pregnancy, even in the 9th month, and her campaign aides were caught in a Wikileaks email dump bashing Catholics.

The death of Eric Garner was one of the more emotional videos.

One of the issues was whether an illegal “choke hold” was used. Simply grabbing someone around the neck is not a choke hold.

A grand jury refused to indict.

Now, as reported by The New York Post, federal prosecutors intend to charge...

The claim that you can keep your plan and doctor was the line that sold Obamacare to a skeptical public, and gave Democrats cover to rework the health care system, comprising 1/5 of the economy, by a bare majority in Congress.

That false promise generally is attributed to Obama during the 2009-2010...

Sometimes Michael Moore gets it right in assessing the mood in the forgotten, economically depleted parts of the country. Though he may be overly optimistic in thinking Trump will win, unless this is Brexit Part II, and the polling and conventional wisdom are off in a historic way.

Alan Sorrentino wrote a Letter to the Editor of his local newspaper, the Barrington Times in Barrington, Rhode Island.

It was a letter, accordingly to Sorrentino, intended to be tongue-in-cheek, somewhat humorous in intent, critical of women wearing yoga pants outside the yoga studio (and men in Speedos).

Bob Dylan was the unexpected winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Apparently, the Honey Badger don’t give a s*** about it, because he’s been silent.
