Florida Gov. Capitulates to Liberal Interests, Vetoes Shared Parenting Bill

Last month, I wrote about some important legislation in Florida that would modernize that state's harsh alimony and child custody laws.

High School Coach Bullied Into Dropping Prayer at Football Games

Political correctness has invaded my alma mater.

I want to to talk about the most serious problem facing our country right now. Fast food workers are unable to make a living on $15 an hour.

Who has the most power in the country over political issues? Everyone focuses on the president and Congress when they talk about reforming the system and taking control back from the left, but they overlook the real powerbroker.
