Anyone who runs for President is driven in large part by ego. But Christie doesn't respect the voters, and believes that every time he has the podium it is time to tell you about himself and his "you-may-not-like-me-but-I'm-telling-the-truth" uniqueness.
The Marijuana Policy Project came out with its report card for 22 presidential candidates and hopefuls and the headline is that no one is sticking their neck out very far when it comes to the legalization of marijuana or the loosening of federal pot laws.
Our national motto, E Pluribus Unum--"out of many, one"-- continues to be an ideal we all can aspire to, with or without Donald Trump. Fanning the flames of racism, xenophobia, and division at a time when the US needs more national cooperation is inexcusable.
As a working TV and feature film writer in Hollywood, I have been fortunate enough to sell a couple of pilots to NBC. But I am also one of those immigrants from Mexico Donald Trump talked about -- except I've never raped anyone, I am not a criminal and I have never done or sold drugs.
Ya gotta hand it to Donald Trump. Whenever he does something, he does it big. Huge...the biggest and the best!, as the self-aggrandizing Donald himself would say.
I seem to spend a lot of time educating people that most everything they know about bankruptcy is just plain wrong. In fact a friend of mine just told me they were going to file bankruptcy and my answer was, "congratulations."
Donald Trump has no one to blame but himself for the ongoing controversy. If he had shown a basic level of respect for Latinos, he would not be facing growing outrage in the Hispanic community. Maybe the title of his next book should be "How To Lose Friends and Deport People."

We do not need a president who will build stronger walls. What we need is a president who will look well beyond those walls and work instead to dismantle erroneous separations.
BC fired Donald Trump today. Last week Trump's Miss Universe pageant was dropped by Univision. Both networks are reacting to racist remarks by the Republican Primary contender, who is currently running second in the New Hampshire polls, ahead of Marco Rubio and only slightly trailing "Jeb!" Bush.
Whether a mockery of a political contender or brilliant performance artist, The Donald made his humble announcement while trashing everyone other than children with cancer.
LBL invites you to self-identify and share. Don't be shy. She suspects that of the 12,060 followers listed on her blog, there are actually only about 7 who read her posts. Your secret is safe.
A month ago, his campaign foundered on the question of his relationship with his brother, his brother's policies, and his brother's politics. This week he had one good day, but since then it has been downhill.
This so-called "trade" package is made up of 29 parts, with only five actually dealing with trade. Written in secrecy by 600 representatives of corporations and their allies, and shepherded by Michael Froman, our Trade Representative who came to this job straight from Wall Street -- has anyone ever heard of a conflict of interest in this administration?
Political pundits are mocking the Trump campaign, saying that he's not a "serious" candidate. My question, then, is who are the serious Republican candidates? Ben Carson stated that serving time in prison makes people gay. Ted Cruz read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor. Should I go on?
You have got to love a man who can bring Iran into the fold in a day, humble China, befriend Vladimir Putin and make America "great again." One wonders if he can do it all in six days.
