GOING OUT ON A LIMB A BIT: Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States.
'COMMON SENSE' GUN CONTROL makes no sense. Unless, perhaps, you're insane.
THE 'APP' TAX: a sneaky new 'utility' tax.
JAZZ SHAW: The media blame-laying and finger-pointing has already begun.
How is it that we’re all accepting that the results of the primary and the conduct of the candidates during the general are somehow “wrong” and it must be somebody’s “fault” that we wound up in this situation? ... To imply that either the media or either party’s national committees should have somehow “done more” to ensure we didn’t wind up with these candidates is not only insane, but it reveals the general attitude which clearly lurks in the mind of not only Chuck Todd but too many people inside both the media and major party establishments. You unwashed peasants picked candidates we don’t approve of so we must have failed in our jobs of telling you who to support.

Here’s a news flash for a news man. That’s not your job. That’s not the job of the parties. It’s never been your job. The media was supposed to just present the facts and give the candidates a space to put their views and plans on display so the voters could choose. The DNC and RNC were supposed to be referees in this match, not babysitters who shepherd us toward a preordained destination.
Jazz is right, and it's not just the media and the political 'elites'. Earlier today I had a robocall from the doctor reminding me of a future appointment and trying to give me additional 'instructions' -- I hung up. Then I received a text message from my wireless provider telling me I had to put a password on my phone and that I needed to set up an online account. My response was to tell tell them to mind their own damn business.

And that's just today. I am sick and tired of all these nannyish bureaucratic bozos who provide me goods and services treating me as if I were too stupid to make my own decisions. They can are being told where they can stuff their pretentiousness.
JEFF JACOBY: Another campaign ends and my wishes didn't come true.

They never have; they never will.
A LOOK at Guam's missile defense system.

“FLUSH THE TOILET!” The Clintons and their minions deserve to be driven from public life.

Please. And wipe the handle afterwards....
THOMAS SOWELL: The Left's vision. It's wrong.
KINKY FRIEDMAN for President. I think he would have made a good governor of Texas as well, but unfortunately I didn't live there when he ran.
THE FEDERALIST: Jeffrey Toobin doesn't know the first thing about [Supreme Court Associate Justice] Clarence Thomas's legal legacy.

The Left doesn't know much about anything. They're always certain, and always wrong.
DONALD TRUMP'S FINAL MESSAGE: "Let's drain the swamp."

SAN JOSE MERCURY-NEWS: California companies get billions in tax breaks.

Makes sense -- it's the only way state of California can keep them....
A PRESIDENT TRUMP needs to break the back of the education cartel.

With luck, he'll get the chance.
'ELITES' ARE STUPID: The New York Times gets history and geography ... wrong.
VOX: Explaining it all to you.

Because you're too stupid to figure it out for youself.
