Teens not working doesn’t work for America Here’s a trend that may not bode well for the future of our country: According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 40 percent of 16- to 19-year-olds have summer jobs — down from 75 percent of teens a generation ago. As it goes, according to […]

Two prime examples of how American influence has deteriorated under President Obama include what we have seen over the last few weeks in the Middle East and the all-out war between Israel and Hamas.  Our foreign policy is in shambles because President Obama would rather let others take the lead when it is American leadership […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst Bust out the gin and tonics because this is shaping up to be one heck of a long hot summer. Weather- wise and politics-wise.

They were […]

More time has passed and still the President has done absolutely nothing to deal with the crisis on our Southern border. There is still no set plan to stop the thousands of people flooding our border each day, and there is no end in sight because of President Obama’s refusal to take action. This week, […]
