GOP lost senses over default and Obamascam

aca-health error It is patently obvious that House Republicans have taken leave of their senses.   They have placed the nation in a dangerous economic posture over their refusal to fund “ObamaCare” which is a losing battle.  Worse, they have allowed Democrats and the President to place them in a no-win situation by holding them accountable for any problems that may arise.

divorceThe fallout from the government shutdown debacle has been devastating to the Republican Party. Poll results show the party is viewed negatively by 70% of the American people.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.
