Bigotry is dangerous and, coming from our nation’s commander in...

Via: Krishna  •  46 comments  •  one week ago
Whether or not Kylie Jenner is a self-made billionaire is debatable (and a few months ago Kylie even admitted that maybe she's not toootally self-made), but one thing that isn't up for debate is that fact that Kylie  is  a billionaire and can afford crazy things, like a mini Louis-Vuitton-monogram-covered Lamborghini for her daughter Stormi, who, reminder, is a toddler. Another...

Donald Trump has the Washington, DC establishment in a state of constant confusion and disarray. He’s like the Muhammad Ali’s “rope-a-dope.” Donald ropes the news media and his critics in with provocative pronouncements, and those dopes continue to play the Wily Coyote, ankle biters’ role to Trump’s Road-Runner agenda.

I thought Trump's Lincoln Memorial Show was going to supplant the traditional Washington DC celebration " A Capitol Fourth" which takes place in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol building , but the original show will go on , on the opposite end of the National Mall from Trump's show.  "A Capitol Fourth" can be seen on PBS at 8:00 Eastern.  The PBS show will feature performers such as...
