Many cultures throughout history have honored their war dead. The US does the same on the last Monday in May when on Memorial Day, we gather our families for outdoor celebrations and acknowledge the sacrifice made by those fighting for our country.
Donald Trump has secured the number of delegates for the Republican presidential nomination.
Trump was destined to win the nomination anyway because he was already so close to the oft-cited “magic” number of 1237, with five more primaries taking place on June 7. California or one of the other states would have easily put him over the top.
I spent part of yesterday responding to inane tweets from the anti-Trump sector whose efforts benefit Hillary Clinton. I blocked a dozen or so of those who continued to badger me to watch a video attacking Donald Trump.
Media are reporting on violence at a rally where Donald Trump spoke in Albuquerque (NM) on Tuesday. Cars were vandalized, rocks were thrown at police, and at least one Trump supporter who is wheelchair bound claimed he was assaulted.
I saw a snippet of a video shot by Ami Horowitz on the campus of Portland State University. I knew PSU’s students were on the fringe left. What I didn’t know was the depth of depravity these students could drop to.
At first I thought maybe someone took a snip of the video out of context. When I viewed the whole thing, it was even worse than I thought.
