Donald Trump is on Probation

November 9, 2016


So, here we are – November 9th. The election is over and the country is not united, in fact it is split down the middle, as the results of the vote tallys indicate – Clinton winning the popular vote and Trump, the electoral vote. I have some random thoughts about the outcome and this is […]

Donald Trump’s Yuuuuge Millennial and Independent problem – It’s either Ted Cruz or we lose
