Donald J. Trump’s Presidential Address to Congress

Tonight I watched the Presidential address to congress and I have to admit that it was one of his better speeches. He didn’t seem to spew much of the rhetoric we heard on the campaign trail, but rather seemed to focus on what it would take to make America great again. One of my favorite …

Hollywood Elites

This year with it being an election year, I’m really not looking forward to these pampered, privileged, overpaid Hollywood elites who take the time to pat themselves on the back for doing their job.
