Everyone should have the opportunity to fail and fail hard. There are no excuses in Kansas, there are no Democrats blocking the march to ever lower taxes or ever smaller schools.

Ugh, this OpEd on CNN wins the prize for the dumbest thing I'll read this week…

By the summer of 2011, the Syrian uprising was spiraling into a full-fledged insurgency, with ragtag militias eclipsing the nonviolent opposition and dealing serious blows to the once-untouchable regime of Bashar Assad.

Hispanic Democrats for Trump: We’re not a political party; we are something even more objectionable, we are an advertising agency. An advertising agency with some ethics and good intentions and we don’t like bullies. Mr. Trump has indicated he is many things – most of all a bully.
This video is our unified stand on behalf of our co-workers, peers, friends and family members who are Hispanic. We’re offended by Mr. Trump’s assertions concerning Hispanic members of our community.
If you don’t agree with Mr. Trump’s hurtful words, please share this video on Facebook and Twitter.
