Midterms Big Money

Democrats this election have done a good job attracting a lot of big on the record public donors, but Republicans appear to have the big advantage when it comes to big secret donors. $794 Million for the GOP vs. $463 Million for the Dems. That’s a $331 Million advantage for the GOP.

GOP Dems Masks Small

The vast majority of politicians run in whatever direction will get them the most votes.

Can you smell what the economy is cooking??

Essentially the economy has been left alone to heal itself for almost 4 years.  It is a testament to the American spirit and work ethic that we’ve managed to heal ourselves to the extent we have.

Protesters at Eric Garner rally approach Staten Island Courthouse Saturday.

open carry store

Walking around a store with an unloaded air gun that’s for sale at that store when you’re black allows police to legally murder you. Walking around a store with real and loaded weapons when you’re white is exercising your 2nd Amendment rights.
