I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from Temple University, a master's degree in philosophy from Baylor University, and a bachelor's degree in philosophy and religious studies from Wingate University. I teach philosophy at several colleges in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas.

A lot of crowing today on the part of Democrats. I get it. They had a decent night and they need to take what they can get given how badly Donaldus Maximus has been thrashing them for the last couple […]
