Therefore it’s time for something completely different. This thread is dedicated to the oddball musical tastes of our readers and contributors.

Both groups love socialized healthcare, both groups love allowing men in women’s restrooms, and now both groups are telling a fresh new lie about Ted Cruz. In this case, | Read More »
In true Trump fashion, Trump’s Arizona chairman Jeff DeWit promised a lawsuit over the delegate debacle because everything in the whole world is unfair when it doesn’t go Trump’s way. But behind the scenes? Apparently DeWit was well aware it was the Trump team’s own shortcomings that led to the delegate results, and let’s just say he was less than thrilled about it.
John Culberson has introduced three bills which will strengthen immigration enforcement by ensuring that every illegal alien over the age of eighteen is prosecuted wherever they’re found in the U.S., illegal immigrant convicts are fined, imprisoned, or both, and felony criminal illegal aliens are deported upon completion of their sentences.
