Looks like Trump has to bite the bullet and release his tax returns. He can always blame his tax accountants.

Glad they had surveillance cameras installed even if it means Big Brother is present.

Posted in: No-go zone: Trump to skip 'boring' White House press dinner See in context

It was bad when they went down to Trump’s level and got a vulgar comedienne for last year’s dinner. It gave credence to Trump’s criticism about the one sided media. Hopefully, this year’s event will return to the way it used to be no matter who the president is.

I am glad they are up putting surveillance cameras. Sometimes you need Big Brother to maintain a civil and safe society.

I didn’t realize how versatile Ms. Blunt was until I saw her in “Edge of Tomorrow”. She is a fantastic actress. And she can sing because the Mary Poppins part 2 is a musical.

It is a huge disservice to all Japanese that this modern nation does not allow females to ascend the throne.

When Donald Trump became president much to the surprise (and chagrin) to the elites in the media, the Democrats, and some Republicans.

Posted in: Obama takes aim at Trump, GOP in fiery Milwaukee speech See in context

Please go away Barack Obama. I still don't understand how and why he won a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing except for being the first black American president. A real conundrum.
