    HOUSTON, Texas – After losing to Donald Trump in Indiana, Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced he was dropping out of the race for the GOP nomination. “We left it all on the field in Indiana,” said Cruz to a crowd of followers when he called it a quits. “We gave it everything we’ve got.

Just when the City of Houston is putting all the logistics together for America’s top sporting event – enough transportation for visitors being one of them – Uber is threatening to leave us. “The City of Houston does not compromise on public safety,” expressed Mayor Sylvester Turner. “We want them to stay, but only if they follow our rules.” The conflict is over new regulations: Uber drivers will be required […]

  • Trump applying tactics he described 30 years ago in his book “The Art of the Deal”

    NEW YORK CITY, NY – With Trump sweeping the votes in five states on Tuesday, it seems like it would be pretty hard now for the so-called Republican anti-Trump camp to stop this train. What started as a joke, kind of… has become a national phenomenon. Whether or not you like the billionaire, one thing is for sure: nobody should claim to be surprised by the way he attacks opponents or gets media attention; because he wrote about his tactics […]

And what if a kid you know is being bullied? “If you’re bullied, just ignore whoever is bullying you and don’t pay attention to them,” expressed 7-year-old Evan Lucio. “Be proud of who you are,” added Monse Pineda. “And you always need to believe in yourself,” concluded Aliyah Rodriguez. Bullying […]
