Graduation requirement: Constitution test.

When I went to high school (1966-1970), it was required that all seniors take and pass a test on the Constitution of the United States. Not quite a citizenship test but close. The thinking was that as students and young Americans you should at least be aware of what the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. […]

Donald Trump is our 45th President of the United States.

 And it is sending the liberals into a crying fit. Protests have taken place in major cities across the U.S. including right here in St. Paul MN. They are protesting America electing Donald Trump, yet they demanded if Hillary were elected we accept that as being valid and evidence that our electoral system works. Now […]
