Seems as though in the past several years, from Bill Clinton to Bill Cosby to Bill O’Reilly, a lot of public male personalities have kissed their reputations good-bye as not-so-secret tales of their sexual misconduct have surfaced. As we have watched story after story of harassment, abuse and perversion come to light, we might think,...(image)

There has been a lot of gnashing of teeth among Democrats over President Donald Trump’s executive actions last week.
