Our banking system has a design problem, because its incentives are broken. Financialization is stifling the productive economy. And the systemic threat posed by our biggest banks has made them immune from real punishment. These massive financial institutions don't need a PR campaign. They need to be cleaned up -- and they need to be broken up. "If you ain't cheating," said one of the traders involved in the currency exchange scandal, "you ain't trying." If we're not addressing the financial sector's systemic threat to our economy, of its affronts to our system of justice, then we ain't trying either.

A clear majority -- two thirds -- of Americans don't have guns in their homes. Almost four out of five Americans don't personally own a gun. And as the gun-owning population continues to age and die off, fewer Americans are taking their place. These numbers terrify the NRA and their "corporate partners" in the gun industry but should offer hope for the majority of Americans.

I nursed my son for two years and I hope to do the same with my daughter. I fully believe that "breast is best" (at least most of the time), and I will gladly talk your ear off about the benefits of nursing. But would you believe me if I told you that I hated nursing so much that I almost quit?
When you Google "feminism," the first thing that comes up is the definition. After that, a couple of articles about Emma Watson, and then a website called "feminism.org." You know what doesn't pop up? Man hating.
