We Are the Boss of You, Mr. President

Note to the current occupant of the Oval Office at the White House. We, the people of the United States of America, are the boss of you, Mister Bully President. No doubt about it. The President — and all elected officials for that matter — need to act responsibly on our behalf. You do not […]

What Will We Celebrate This July 4?

A week before communities across the country stage July 4 firework extravaganzas, we need to ask an important question and deliver an honest answer to ourselves, our families and friends: What will we celebrate on that historic date in 2017?
