What's your favorite number? Mine is number three. I am the third of three sons, I own condo number 3, I lived on the third floor of my university dorm in room 303, do you get the idea?

This morning, then again tonight at 9 a.m. and p.m., 19 minutes, 19 seconds on 9-19-19, it will be the Palindrome: a word, phrase, number, or another sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction. This will not occur again for decades, so I promise to never mention it again.

Some conservative political observers fear that Republican party officials insist on hiding their head in the sand and do not understand the severity at hand. Frustration appears to be making way to desperation for @POTUS and his @VP

When you have a partner who will not accept mistakes and will always blame problems on others, this is a disaster waiting to happen between strange bedfellows.

Will the GOP push the panic button or overreact in a wildly impulsive, confused, or excessive manner, often because it is the last resort to be used only when all else has failed?

Do Americans agree with the way POTUS has been playing US concerning gun control? We The People are the real bosses and must speak up now and step out of the comfort zone immediately before more people are massacred with more assault rifles.
