    Will GOP Ever Learn?

    Thanks to known and demonstrable collusion between Progressives and the so-called free press, we can’t count on many reporters to impartially report much of anything these days. We know it is inevitable that Progressives would launch a full-court-press gun control offensive after the Orlando terrorist murders of innocent Americans. But, will the GOP ever learn... by OurVoicesAR

    About Those Unemployment Numbers….

    We keep hearing President Obama brag on the American economy: “America’s businesses have created 14.5 million new jobs over 75 straight months….We’ve seen the first sustained manufacturing growth since the nineties.

    Willing to Be Angry

    Big media — and other candidates — have chosen to attack the (let’s say) boisterousness of Trump rallies, never failing to disdainfully point out the “anger” on display there. We expect the media to report on the sizzle without even looking at the steak, but why won’t the other candidates take a look at that... by OurVoicesAR

    Wounded Warrior Project Fires CEO, COO

    We received some pushback when we first said “My Money Won’t Go to Wounded Warrior Project” and explained how the charity was reckless with its donations. People were shocked — shocked! — that such a well meaning charity could possibly be less than transparent about how it used the money it gathers “for veterans.” We... by OurVoicesAR
