Loving Trump’s U.N. speech

Donald Trump’s speech to the United Nations on Tuesday was not just great, it was totally refreshing.
The president’s address to the U.N. General Assembly was so perfect it almost made me forget all the horrible speeches his predecessor gave to that corrupt, bloated and anti-American body.
For the first time in eight years the world saw an American president not spending half his time apologizing to the U.N. for our country’s past, present and future.

Hillary and company should chill

My message to certain Democrats, starting with Hillary Clinton: Don’t go away mad, just go away.

Desperate for tax reform that simplifies

“Help!” said the fellow, surrounded by a pile of papers. “I don’t think I’m going to make it through this 1040 tax form.”
“Why is that?” I said.
“The 2016 tax extension I filed is due by Oct. 15. But it is so complicated, I don’t see how I can possibly figure it.”
“Millions feel your pain,” I said. “According to Forbes, the basic 1040 form was two simple pages in 1935. Now the basic 1040 form has 100 pages of instructions that are very complex. Maybe you can contact the Internal Revenue Service for help.”
