Why isn’t President Obama’s statement that he would consider it a personal insult if African-Americans did not vote for Hillary considered racist? Imagine the uproar if George W. Bush had said the same to white voters in supporting McCain. He’d have been crucified.

Ban knives

Hurry, call your Democrat representatives and tell them to pass legislation to ban knives now that, unfortunately, another mass stabbing has occurred, this one in a Minnesota mall. A man with a gun in the mall ended the terror attack by shooting the knife wielder and saved lives and blood shed! Where is Chris Murphy on this?

Tyrants

Wake up, Trump supporters. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump are two peas in a pod. Both are dangerous, low-brow tyrants and egomanical loose cannons.
