February 29 is Leap Day. No, don’t start jumping just yet, this has nothing to do with frogs or ballet. It has to do with catching up to the Gregorian calendar and the rotation of the sun.

According to the Gregorian calendar which is the most widely used civil calendar in the world, and it's a day that takes place mostly during years that are divisible by four.

So, years including 2004, 2008, and 2012 were leaping years, and this year, we're celebrating leap day again.

Most decent players have an understanding of when to fold. The decision made playing cards to preflop, or thinking before the flop by deciding whether to fold, call or raise based on your position is always the crucial one.

Americans need to know the whole truth and nothing but, so help us, God. Why do we allow this to continue?

Why did Donald Trump move on from liers Roy Cohn to Michael Cohen as his attorney and fixers?

How did POTUS get here? It was Roy Marcus Cohn a gay-hating homosexual, and Jew-hater? Was he the presence of evil?

#RoyCohen James Woods' Citizen Cohn is also worth watching https://youtu.be/jtQNGUIw2Hg

Lately, I am hearing way too many people inappropriately using the word LIKE and I do not like it at all. Furthermore, our schools are not teaching the basic reading, writing, arithmetic, science and communication skills necessary to be competitive.

What follows is a basic curriculum in life that an adolescent should know before reaching adulthood. There will probably be other skills you can add to this list, so please do it.

USA voters cast their ballots for 435 House seats, 35 Senate spots, Governors along with a whole lot of state, local offices and issues. While folks are focused only with the US House and The Senate, the big story may be #USA Governors. @TheDemocrats may take a bunch of states, with serious implications for 2020 and the all-important issue of redistricting.
