trump engineSurprised?  Absolutely.

He’s not alone.  



This is essentially the feelings of Joshua Stockley, political scientist from University of Louisiana-Monroe, who sits in amazement over the recent developments in the presidential election.

With the Iowa caucus tomorrow,, interviewed Dr. Stockley about the presidential elections and other matters.

Why is Stockley surprised about Trump?  Well, for one, The Donald has made some offensive comments but those don’t seem to phase Republicans likely to vote.

What about the establishment candidates poor showin?


Stockley figured Rubio and Bush would do the best with Rubio in the best position for long game.

Yet, despite the overwhelming lead Trump has nationally and in key primary states, Stockley said the primary season is not over.

One the Democratic side, with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton running neck and neck, the political scientist notes a poorly run Clinton campaign on certain issues.

Those are just some of the issues discussed.  Watch the short video for more.

It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
