George W. Bush is approaching Barack Obama in post-presidential popularity. You must admit, that’s pretty good. Had the lapdog media treated bush like they did Obama, no contest.

Hey, wait a minute! Hold the phone, and let me get this straight. The Saudis gave Hillary Clinton’s foundation $20 million and Republicans became apoplectic. This week the Saudis gave Ivanka Trump’s foundation $100 million immediately after her daddy signed a $350 Billion ten year weapons de…

We have had a tough school year, but the administration at Live Oak High, and North Live Oak have been wonderful. Thank you, Ms. Stone, and Ms. Rhonda, we are going to miss you next year.
