History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes    Mark Twain Sometimes it's kind of cute and funny when life imitates art. Other times it's damn near terrifying, and this is one of those times Trump's actions over the last few...
Say what you will about Hillary, but I don’t think she would have gotten us into a war with Canada, nor alienated the rest of our staunchest allies, let alone all on the same day. https://twitter.com/EmmanuelMacron/status/1004812693348511751 Swell. Russia got kicked out...
