Tough Luck, Chumps

Advertised as a big deal ahead of time, the debate didn’t get much play afterwards. Especially from the Left blogosphere. Why?

Watcha Gonna Do?

At a White House meeting last week between President Trump and law enforcement officials, a Texas sheriff raised a concern about legislation introduced by a state senator to require a conviction before police could take someone’s property.

Best Plan Is No Plan

“Republicans would create chaos in the health care system because they are stuck,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “between a rock and a cliché.” Oh. Off by a word or two. But I don’t need to fix it. What needs to be fixed is the whole system. “Head clown”*
