    Trump is just the leader we need

    How quickly the "easily bruised" are jumping all over Donald Trump. Trump said, "McCain disrespected me and I disrespected him back." Words said when you are angry should be seen in that light. Don't expect a strong man to kowtow to the whining voices of crybabies.

    In 1857 the U. S. Supreme Court informed the nation that African-Americans did not qualify as citizens, evoking outrage among abolitionist Republicans.

    Misplaced anger for Mideast mess
