Republican Debate ‘Cage Fight’ at Peace Center in Greenville, SC

It is Ironic that the most important Republican debate of the election would be taking place in this quaint upstate South Carolina town known for its southern charm, sweet tea and hospitality.  Greenville is about to host a gloves off, no holds barred, cage match at the ‘Peace Center’ for the GOP nomination between Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio for the Presidency of the United States.

A Not so Sweet Southerners View on Greenville, SC Republican Debate

What will Greenville’s GOP debate leave us with?  A good ole fashion southern show down or a dance all around the issues hoe down? When some teens who will be voting soon were asked their thoughts on this year’s election they said “they didn’t really care who won as long as French fries got back into school.”  Too bad Christie dropped, that could have been a first year guarantee.  Fiorina […]

Why? Even today as Trump visited the US border with Mexico in Laredo, Texas he was even betrayed by the local union representative for the border agents who had […]

Donald Trump’s Rump

Columns are hard. You need elements; a beginning, a middle, an end. Sometimes the end is the hardest part, like bringing it in for a landing. There has to be something that pulls it all together. Something that makes it seem as though you had a point. A quick review of my archives indicates that I don’t have that in me very often. Most of the time I’m lazy, and […]
