My brother was recently visiting from Florida. He and I sat out on the driveway all night, lost track of time, and ended up watching the sun come up. Later that same day, my wife said, "How many did you have last night?" I replied, "In dog beers, I only had two." It's America's birthday this week. She's 242 years old, but if you're counting in dog beers, to the rest of planet Earth, America's still a puppy.
April 6, catch and release was ended by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Catch and release was a practice of releasing them to the community, while he or she awaited a hearing in immigration court.

Politically, I am a proud Independent. From liberal to conservative, I believe we need diverse perspectives for the healthiest government possible. Our success has been due to our ability to find common ground in solving our nation's challenges with different people working together. Traditionally, we have done this through our political parties. Political parties can be good things but they can also do lots of damage through self-inflicted wounds.

If you listen to MSNBC, CNN and the other mainstream media, you constantly hear the same mantra from all of them; their hatred for our president. One opinion writer must be auditioning for a spot on one of these newscasts or these are the only places he gets his fake news from. Three hostages were released by North Korea with President Trump giving nothing in return.
