Trump’s corporate tax cut is supply-side stimulus I could agree with if done right, even though it primarily helps the rich. Trump's cut of the top rate from 35% to 15% is the largest of its kind in the history the United States.
Chicago suffered through its worst summer of violence in decades. In August, over 400 people were shot and 80 killed. Activists and public unions blame income inequality. Income inequality is rising, but very few understand who is to blame. And the tax hikes and pay hikes that unions seek exacerbate the problems and cause white flight.

We've got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They're not coming from Charlotte."
A new email revealed from a Houston immigration field office boss encourages staff "to take advantage of the OT if you can" to approve as many citizenship applications as possible "due to the election year."
The winner of presidential debates is not the one who compiles the most debating points. It is the one whom the audience decides they like, and can be comfortable taking a chance on. Trump has the same imperative and same opportunity as JFK and Reagan. For the anticipated audience, of Super Bowl size, will be there to see him, not her.
Doing nothing to dispel chatter of a papal push for a utopian totalitarian nightmare, Pope Francis seemed to suggest that freedom of speech was over-rated in an address he gave this week.
