Billionaires freaked when there was talk about eliminating them. But no one was talking about guillotines or firing squads-- just more equitable tax plans. That's what Bernie proposed, what AOC proposed and what Elizabeth Warren proposed. And the billionaires and their lackeys went...

Trump doesn't give a whit about women's Choice one way or the other and the only thought he ever put into it before being persuaded it can be used as a potent political weapon against his enemies, was when he was relieved legal abortion could be used to get rid of fetuses in women he had...

It is often said that if you want to know where a child got their stupidity from just have a look at the parents. It's the old "apple doesn't fall far from the tree" adage. That adage is certainly true when it comes to the apple of the president's eye, Ivanka Trump....

Michigan used to be a reliably Republican state. Michiganders picked native son Jerry Ford over Carter in 1976, Reagan both times he ran and the George H.W. Bush over Dukakis in 1988 but in 1992 the state started turning-- and voting-- blue. Bill Clinton beat George H.W. Bush and then...
