With the Democratic primaries grinding to a bitter end, I have suggestions for both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters that neither will like. First, my advice to Clinton supporters: Don't try to drum Bernie Sanders out of the race before Hillary Clinton officially gets the nomination (if she in fact does get it). Some of you say Bernie should bow out because he has no chance of getting the nomination, and his continuing candidacy is harming Hillary Clinton's chances. But if you consider only pledged delegates, he's not all that far behind Hillary Clinton. Next, my advice for Sanders supporters: Be prepared to work hard for Hillary Clinton if she gets the nomination. Some of you say there's no real difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. That's just plain wrong.
This May, we celebrate Older Americans Month by honoring our seniors. But our obligations to them and their caretakers must be enduring throughout the year. Hillary Clinton's record proves she will never roll the dice on our seniors' futures.
If you needed further proof of Trump's hypocrisy when it comes to Wall Street and government, money and politics, look no further than this gang of wheeler-dealers, flim-flam consultants and Washington insiders, the Goodfellas of American politics.
Sometimes the little things in life make a big difference. It's good to be ready for them, so that you can make a strong impression.
Apologizing is a modern plague, and I'd be willing to bet (though I have zero scientific research to back this up) that many women utter "I'm sorry" more on a given day than "Thank you" and "You're welcome" combined. I am a woman who is sometimes right, sometimes wrong but somehow always sorry.
Responding to voters deeply felt needs, Sanders has given birth to a true progressive movement that, if understood, embraced, and, most importantly, sustained, can, as he has noted, bring revolutionary change to America. It is a phenomenon.
Donald Trump and people like Donald Trump did not cause the financial crisis or the mortgage and foreclosure crisis. While it might be fair to say that Trump is a scumbag for proudly voicing and admitting to being an opportunist post-crisis, the real cause of the crisis were Clinton's close pals.

This Memorial Day, find a way to honor the veterans with parades, visits to monuments and national parks where they are featured, and put a flower next to a gravesite of a fallen hero. And let's spend the other 364 days in the year fighting just as hard for them as they have for us!
It would be good if this visit by President Obama acts as a catalyst for everyone to come to where it all began and learn about the dangers of atomic radiation. It would be good if it could be turned into a tide, moving toward a world without nuclear weapons.
We need our smartphones, notifications screens and web browsers to be exoskeletons for our minds and interpersonal relationships that put our values, not our impulses, first. People's time is valuable. And we should protect it with the same rigor as privacy and other digital rights.
Today in a rally in Fresno, California, Donald Trump made a few comments about water. They were all inanities, parroting old Republican mis-statements and misrepresentations about the causes of California's water challenges.
I had the humble honor of serving in our military. But my service was a privilege, not a sacrifice. But I had friends with whom I served who made the ultimate sacrifice. To them and their fallen brothers and sisters I am forever grateful.
The bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki have not produced eternal peace. Instead they opened a Pandora's box that can never be fully locked back up.
There's nothing really that special about these letters to my dad - and that's their value. They are the typical sentiments of American dogfaces in Europe in World War II. Men who saw the destruction of Germany and the deaths of their friends. They had no illusions about war, and they didn't spout patriotic platitudes.
The most common response is that Bernie as yet has not been tested by the Republican's slime machine. This meme is repeated so often (especially by Hillary surrogates) that it has taken on the status of conventional wisdom. It must be true or why would everyone be saying it?
President Obama's visit to Hiroshima this morning was a piece of history. He rose to the occasion in his remarks, speaking not only of the need to eliminate nuclear weapons but also questioning the institution of war itself, all with a clear focus on the devastating human consequences of armed conflict.
If people abhor rape and would like to make the world a safer place in general, a good simple first step is listening to women when they say that street harassment is a problem.
Whether Trump wins in November or not, his "evolving" views on climate suggest that even as the effects of climate change are becoming increasingly evident, the American electorate is divided on how to make sense of the transition needed.
I'm not really sure where this gap year is going to take me (or whether it's going to be successful) but I'm excited to take a chance, not have anything planned, and see what opportunities this year brings.
This male criticism of an alleged workaholic female -- one who wants to become the president of the United States -- is less about dissecting the Hillary Clinton paradox than it is about suggesting that there's yet one more thing wrong with serious, ambitious women.
Whether or not the debate between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders materializes, the mere possibility of such an event merits our consideration. Apart from making history, what would a Trump-Sanders face-off mean for the three principal stakeholders?
In light of all this information, this situation can only be described a coup. The conversations between Jucá and Machado make it even clearer that there is great similarity between what is happening now and what took place in 1964.
The Farm Credit System was the first GSE to be established by the United States in 1916. Unlike Fannie and Freddie, the Farm Credit System can make direct loans to farmers, ranchers and others involved in agriculture.
"Trigger warning: rape" is for those who cannot talk about what has happened to them. I want you to know that you are not alone, you cannot be silenced, this isn't your fault, you are not dirty or unlovable and you will get through this.
Do you have a child who hates to read? I have two. As a heedless, promiscuous lover of words, I find it hard not to see my children's resistance to reading as anything but the ultimate karmic bitch-slap.
If the Democratic Party today aligns itself, especially with young voters, for a clear vision that rejects the neo-liberal policies that have ruled both major parties since the 1970s, and embraces an agenda for transforming the nation they can ride the wave of change. Or be left behind.
The real embarrassment is that Trump perfectly represents America's political and business elites. It was their arrogance and bluster in the first place that led them to believe they could for decades get away with beating down workers to the bare bones without ever producing a scary countervailing backlash.
I remember feeling the weight of deep sadness and enormous gratitude all at once. You see, Sarah wasn't going to be able to use her breastmilk because the baby girl she was carrying wasn't expected to live very long after birth.
We could cynically point to hypocrisy. Certainly that's there. But I think the underlying belief system that allows a Christian university to overlook sexual violence is a kind of misogyny related to particular conservative Christian convictions about women, gender, and sexuality.
The alarm is going off. No. The baby is going off. No. The baby is shrieking. I close my eyes. She is not a baby. She is firmly and absolutely a toddler. And she will definitely put herself back to sleep, the way she has (never done) before.
