Scalia-less Supreme Court hears major abortion case

Common Sense, Nebraska Style

The other day, my junior Senator, Ben Sasse, had a few things to say about Donald’s Trump’s candidacy. he was plain spoken and right, I think. WHY I RAN FOR SENATE ***No, I’m not a career politician. (I had never run for anything until being elected to the U.S. Senate fifteen months ago, and I […]
