“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

A Brief History On November 8, 2016, the 58th quadrennial American presidential election will be held.  In the current race to become a major party Presidential Nominee, the list of candidates lack military experience or inclination, with only Donald Trump having the slightest military connection.  Considering that each of these candidates wants to be the Commander in Chief of our military forces the situation is somewhat ridiculous.  Of our 44 Presidents only 11 had no military experience.

A Brief History Recent news programs were flush with news about the 2016 Presidential race, and Rafael Eduardo (“Ted”) Cruz was featured in a couple of these videos, much to his embarrassment.

Digging Deeper Candidate for President Donald Trump is accused of calling people names and…

A Brief History On March 15, 2016, American voters in the Presidential nomination process have a huge (“yoooooge!”) day on March 15 when voters go to the polls in extremely important states such as Ohio, Florida, and Illinois (as well as Missouri and North Carolina, also important states).  The elections held on this day may well be decisive in determining who exactly the party nominees are for the Democrats and Republicans.
