Conservative Newspapers Explain Why They Refused To Endorse "Frightening" Trump David Yepsen, former Des Moines Register political columnist, said, "One thing Trump has to do is get moderate and wavering Republicans to 'come home.'

NRA Floats Idea Of Kids Needing To Show Gun Proficiency "To Advance To The Next Grade" NRA News commentator Billy Johnson imagined a compulsory education system that would require children to become proficient with firearms, just like "reading and writing," even "if they didn't want to learn.

Implementing this plan would involve taking away the vote from a large number of Americans who work but do not owe federal income taxes as well as retirees and some individuals who cannot work because of illness or disability.

Fox Asks Rumsfeld About Extending "Hand Of Friendship" To Dictators, Forgets About Saddam Hussein What's so awkward about Fox pressing Rumsfeld on the U.S. sending "mixed signals" is Rumsfeld himself had offered a "hand of friendship" to Iraq's dictator at the time when Hussein was engaging in the use of banned chemical weapons -- actions the Bush administration would later cite as a justification for military strikes.
