The RNC just came knocking, looking for money again. Republicans have a lot of explaining to do before they deserve a single cent, starting with their tepid support for the president and the America First policy they aren’t supporting. Are they afraid they will be accused of being nationalists or is this the timeworn tradition of separating themselves from a president who might interfere with their job prospects and control of a Congress they still can’t seem to take charge of?
We can’t refer to murderers and rapists as “animals” and separating families at the border is a criminal act. These are the rules handed down by Democrats who have chosen the most extreme stance on non-enforcement imaginable. That’s bad news for children in protected immigrant communities who might be a lot safer in federal hands.
Millions in campaign spending for the Illinois governor’s race is the reason this state is failing. Not that the money could bail us out of the state’s financial crisis even if we spent every penny. It won’t. At best, this money will buy high office in our debt-plagued, 200 year-old Land of Lincoln. Then it will be gone. We could have put the funds to much better use by spending on almost anything but political campaigns. Instead, state politics demands this entrance fee.
It is ludicrous that First Amendment rights are defined by cake and football. That’s what happened thanks to a Supreme Court case and an overblown White House decision. If we placed our trust in free enterprise none of this would have been necessary, but politicians refused to do that and chose their favorite hot buttons instead.
U.S. legislators didn’t take a decisive stand on personal data so a new EU privacy law took the digital leadership role away from us. With companies facing harsh penalties for violations that may not be preventable, we need to hear Congress supporting our businesses instead of siding with European regulators.
