SOTU; In A Perfect World. SOTU; In A Perfect World.

(Akiit.com) In a perfect world, for a State of the Union address (SOTU), we likely would’ve heard a president who actually made sense and who likely would’ve been truthful even if we disagreed with the content of what he said. We’ve learned to set a low bar for #45; he goes beneath it consistently! About 500 years ago Michelangelo said, “It’s not that our aim is too high, and we miss it;... [Read more of this review]

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s stolen victimhood. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s stolen victimhood.

(Akiit.com) It should come as no surprise to anyone that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., would announce her 2020 run for the presidency despite being mired in scandal. Last week it was reported that in 1986 Warren identified herself as a Native American on her registration card for the Texas State Bar. As a result, many of my colleagues on the right speculated that this was the evidence needed to... [Read more of this review]

It reminded me of the good old days, growing up in Alabama, when men led the way in the homes and in their communities.
