Trump makes his move - it was all an act

I hate to say I told ya so, but it was pretty obvious where this was going. Trump is now going to become "presidential", and all those weeks of racism and inanity were "just entertainment".

Re: Talking past one another

I think one reason Clinton and Sanders supporters are talking past one another is that their objectives are somewhat different. Sure, both candidates want to win the nomination, but Clinton's main objective is to become the first female President [more]

Re: KS Economic Growth-The REAL #s

Oh the irony: a post titled "the REAL #s", and the only number in the post is irrelevant to the issue.
