It looks like Donald Trump might not have to spend few years in the oval office to get a building he doesn't own named after him.

In Austin, Texas there is an elementary school, currently named Robert E. Lee elementary. However last month the Texas school board voted to replace the confederate general as the school's name and the floor became open for new ideas. Now it looks like the republican front runner for president is also on top of the leader board for the school's new name.

According to the board Donald J. Trump elementary school is the most popular choice with 45 submissions out of the 240 received. Other popular namesakes in the running include “To Kill a Mockingbird” author Harper Lee and singer Willie Nelson.  read more »

Donald Trump might be leading the polls but his campaign strategy is about to be hacked.

The hacker collective Anonymous has declared a full on war on the presidential candidate. Earlier this week the group issued a declaration that read quote “we have been watching you for a long time and what we see is deeply disturbing. You don't stand for anything but your personal greed and power. This is a call to arms.” End quote.

The group went on and asked members to shut down Trump's websites, research and expose what he doesn't want the public to know. The group says it is going to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. And it's a brand that Trump has spent years building and it's something that he stakes much of his presidential run on.  read more »

As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are closer to winning their party nominations, Wall Street's reaction to their impact is anything but certain.

Because Wall Street hates uncertainty, this year's election is giving investors the jitters, big time. Businessman Donald Trump is bombastic; with claims he is the best candidate to bring jobs back to America and beef up military spending. But he is short on detail of just how he will do that without causing trade wars, higher taxes and bigger deficits.  read more »

When David compared Sanders ideas to socialism, Sanders responded quote “democratic socialism, huge difference.” But with his Brooklyn twang “huge” came out sounding like “yuge” and people are picking up on it.  read more »

Truth can be elusive when candidates pander to voters with promises of a chicken in every pot. Never mind those promises could get them in hot water when its time to deliver. Right now each offers lower taxes, less regulation and more jobs to a skeptical public grown weary of empty rhetoric.  read more »

A Public Apology

It takes a big person to admit when you're wrong, especially when it happens on the national stage.

Back in November New Hampshire’s Union Leader newspaper endorsed New Jersey governor Chris Christie for president. Unfortunately despite the paper's backing Christie finished sixth in the New Hampshire primary and has since suspended his campaign. But that's not what has the paper's publisher apologizing for his mistake.

Over the weekend Christie endorsed current front runner Donald Trump, a move the Union Leader does not want any part of. When it first endorsed Christie the paper says he was a man who has dealt with issues such as natural disaster and prosecuted terrorists. The paper wrote that unlike other candidates Christie actually knows what he is talking about.  read more »
