I see that Klobuchar and Forbes magazine both give little or no credit to Trump or the Republicans for the economy. Unemployment was going down and GDP were going up under Obama, so we have to give credit to Trump for not wrecking Obama's hard work. Yet. Meanwhile the deficit is heading out…

This is baloney, calculated to make those on the religious right feel better. It will also empower any employee of a hospital or care facility to complain about something they don't believe in, but which in the mind of the patient is needed care. It's like putting Christian Science in charge…

The population of NY state increased by .07% last year. The increase is in metro areas, some from out of state; some from rural areas of the state. This is the same thing I have seen in Iowa and Illinois where I have lived before. In Iowa there used to be 4 farms on a section (square mile) n…
