The great American Shipwreck

January 9, 2018 Carlos Barberena 0

November 7, 2016 a day that will live in infamy….. I have to admit, although I didn’t support either candidate, I secretly wanted a Trump win. Careful what you wish for currently echoes in my mind. First and foremost big thank you to the DNC, especially Debbie Wassermann-Schultz and her team for the bias and abuse of power displayed against the only chance America had against a Trump presidency.
