cruzrubioGrowing up on the mean streets of East Los Angeles, I, like many of my childhood friends, feared the police more than the local gang, Big Hazard.

Donald Trump, you are winning the PR game. You are a modern-day P.T. Barnum, proving his tenet: There’s a sucker born every minute. But America’s problems won’t be solved by you or any other candidate alone, because it is our government that is broken. So, before we hire a new clown, we have the fix […]
