Quote of the Day
At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure.

Mental strength is really important because you either win or lose in your mind.

When a politician like Marco Rubio is willing to sacrifice his career defining immigration reform legislation solely to insure that gays and lesbians are denied equal protection under the law, we have to admit that we're under attack.
