Michele Bachmann remains confident and resolute despite many political setbacks. We met in her office while much of Congress was fleeing the Capitol Building ahead of a major storm that eventually dumped a foot of snow on Washington. The snow was a big deal to residents of the nation’s capital, but little more than flurries to a Minnesotan like Bachmann.
An earthquake struck late Valentine’s Day, spooking some residents in the Gwinnett County area.
The GOP’s failure to come to terms with immigration reform has two big implications.
Perhaps the more apt metaphor for this week’s buzz isn’t a movie after all but double jeopardy. The case of Hillary, Bill and Monica has been prosecuted and then some. Thus all, especially Hillary, have been politically inoculated against further prosecution on this point. Besides, as some apparently need reminding, Hillary was the victim.
I have an extremely low tolerance for sequins and tiaras but heartily recommend this film to anyone who can appreciate a heaping slice of Americana — served up Texas style.
I encourage my children, is to “earn your day.” First and always, continue to learn and practice to be a good person. Don’t waste your day. Do something productive, worthwhile and meaningful.
According to the World Health Organization, 12 percent (500,000) of all babies in the U.S. are born before their due date — a rate far higher than in Europe, Canada, Australia or Japan. Put another way: preemies represent about one in eight live births in this country.
It is amazing how many people still fall for the argument that, if life is unfair, the answer is to turn more money and power over to politicians. Since life has always been unfair, for thousands of years and in countries around the world, where does that lead us?
I assume we’ve all done it, dreamed of winning Olympic gold. Whether you were an athlete or not, there’s something about the thought of representing your country atop the medal stand that is quite appealing, and never more so than during an Olympic year when the events are aired in prime time and Olympic champs are seen everywhere from morning show sets to cereal boxes.
The inability by a major party to trust a president is more than lamentable; it is not good for the country and our standing before other nations and groups that wish to do us harm.
If future moderators are not going to broach the immigration issue during GOP debates, allow someone from the audience to do so.
I have done something that I vowed I would not do. I have succumbed to the latest fad. I have gone gluten free. I have never felt better.
This is not to indict, but simply to advocate for caution grounded in humility. It’s not surprising that myths about the workings of the fabulously complex U.S. health care system continue to tantalize — and confound — policymakers.
The snow was fake, so says the Internet idiots
As the Christie scandal machine grinds on, his polling numbers un-shockingly are plummeting. Once in the lead in a fantasy presidential race, he now trails Hillary Clinton 39 percent to 55 percent.
