We need, as a society, to get back to celebrating mothers who sacrifice their careers to care for our most vulnerable, our children. And yes, we can have our cake and eat it, too.

One of our greatest achievements in the founding of our beloved America was the execution of our framers constructing two very essential aspects of the U.S. Constitution, that being both the concepts of federalism and the division of powers.

Watching the Olympic Games used to be like watching The Godfather, or Citizen Kane. You knew you were watching something spectacular, and you didn’t want the show to end.

What explosive emotions have erupted when Megyn Kelly of Fox news declared that our Jesus and Santa were white men? Let me focus on Jesus, which will readily address the Santa nonsense.

Particularly in this perilous era, could you imagine any American not wanting to prevent criminals or terrorists from entering the United States?

The Social Security Act was passed in 1935 guaranteeing retirement pensions to all Americans over the age of 65. Sounds like a good deal… except for the fact that the average American life expectancy back in ’35 was 61.7 years.
