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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our criminal justice system continues to fail innocent prisoners because of the structures and statutes that legislators refuse to change.
The EU referendum will be one of the most significant decisions British citizens will ever have to make. The outcome will affect how the UK is governed, national security, the economy, human rights, the environment, culture... every aspect of our lives. It will define what it means to be British and could alter this country's relationship with the world for generations to come.
If Republicans want to save their party, if Congress wants to preserve the republic rather than descend into fascism, if we all are frightened beyond belief at an unstable, insecure narcissist having his fingers on the nuclear trigger, then Congress should pass the Wyden bill. Immediately.
Though I disagree with virtually everything that's come out of your blabbering, bullying, sexist, racist mouth, I have to give credit where credit is due. You made history. You changed politics as we know it. You did it your way, all the way. Now we just have to pray to the gods of politics that you never get elected.
Let's teach our children that our freedom was bought and paid for by generations of service members they will never meet; while we can never repay our debt to them, it is our responsibility to remember them.
Dennis Tucker's gift card balance keeps shrinking. A closer look reveals the source of the leak. But can it be stopped?
Donald Trump claims he "is not a big believer in global warming" because the warnings are "a total hoax" and "bullshit" based on "pseudoscience." Thus dismissing the knowledge, experience and data of 2,000 scientists from 154 countries.
