Bizarro World: Those of us who remember Superman comics, there was a Bizarro World that was the opposite of the real world, and we are heading that way if America does not put an end to these radical Democrats and the love for non-Americans and free everything.
There's a push to change laws to permit both criminals serving time and ex-criminals the right to vote. Guess which party is pushing the most for these legal changes. If you guessed that it was the Democrats, go to the head of the class. Bernie Sanders says states should allow felons to vote…
If one needed evidence of the gross ignorance of millennials, and their teachers and college professors, it's their solid support for socialism and socialist presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.

President Donald Trump made fighting illegal immigration a centerpiece of his successful 2016 campaign, and two-plus years into this presidency, it remains a prominent issue.
Dear Bernie, I recently came upon a Facebook post you made in which you blamed climate change for the deadly Lee County, AL tornadoes.
