Today’s November 11 Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day because it was on this date in 1918 the Allies and Germany signed an armistice agreement to end hostilities on the Western Front of the First World War.
On “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” in 1918
the cease-fire took effect.
Why will our next U.S. President not be one of the Republican presidential wanna be clown car occupants?
Because they all stand for ideological, short-sighted, crazy ideas, to do away with women’s health, to do away with clean air, to do away with the earned social security and medicare benefits, to attack Dodd-Frank, to attack immigrants, to increase income inequality and to repress voter rights.
Chairman Trey Gowdy and his Republican colleagues on the U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi are displaying the stature of field mice while in turn allowing Hillary Clinton to display the stature of a President.
Is it a problem for, and what does it say about the Republican party when its presidential front-runner is doing lasting damage to the GOP’s standing among women and minority voters?

In schools, we have to determine the appropriate grade-level for reading lists. The Flesch-Kincaid readability test is one tool used to analyze word choice and sentence structure to determine grade-level rankings.
How about applying the same test to Donald Trump’s speeches? Guess what? It was done.
Trump talks to voters at the 4th grade level!
What does that tell us about the nature of Trump’s support and front-runner status in the GOP?
Republican tea party favorite Presidential wanna-be Ted Cruz says,
“We are working vigorously to earn the votes of tea party voters and conservatives, evangelicals,libertarians, even moderates who are tired of losing, which is what happens every time we nominate a moderate.” Memo to Ted: If you think Republicans lose Presidential elections when they nominate moderate candidates, the loss will be even bigger with the nomination of the likes of you.
“The first Democratic debate showed the country what it is like to have adults on a stage. It doesn’t matter who “won.” The candidates showed they all are concerned about governing the country and proposing actual policies that will help actual people have better lives. And they showed that we have a serious and lively Democratic primary race in front of us. The country will be the winner.”
