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.
According to his website, "Providing healthcare to illegal immigrants costs us some $11 billion annually." As with many of Trump's claims, this one is wrong. But unlike some of his other falsehoods, the media has left this one unchallenged.
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.
I will not join in the vicious quarrels between partisans of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. I refuse to give ammunition to Trump for the campaign. Sanders and Clinton--and their allies-should focus their energies on defeating Trump, not on attacking one another.
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?
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.
Drone strikes and the anger they generate effectively serve to recruit people into the Taliban and other extremist organizations. Even those involved in the program have come to the same conclusion.
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.
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.
There's little sympathy in the world right now for Gawker, which has engaged in questionable and egregious reporting, but Thiel has a lot confused here.
None of us can afford to stay silent when a woman is criminalized by her own providers for seeking urgent, necessary medical care in the setting of pregnancy.
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.
Once so wealthy from oil sales that they could finance wars, mega-projects, and domestic social peace simultaneously, some of them are now beset by internal strife or are on the brink of collapse as oil prices remain at ruinously low levels.
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 love your music, your concerts mostly (such fun, wild shows) and man I never thought that you would become one of those spreaders of fear. Fox, Trump, all those guys.
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.
Five years ago, we embarked on a journey that has brought us to 14 new markets across six continents. During this time, we went from being a U.S. brand, to a budding international brand, to a truly global brand. How did we get here?
The atomic bombs that America dropped on Japan in August of 1945 took more than 200,000 lives. But they probably saved mine.
Hillary offers effective ways to reduce the growing economic gaps that matter most to lower and middle income families - and she has also attracted the broadest support from working Americans of modest means.
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.
The Grand Canyon, brought to you by Budweiser. Verizon signs throughout Yellowstone. The thought of advertising in our national parks is nauseating. But it could happen.
Trump only likes veterans when he thinks they can give him PR cover -- like when he needed a reason to duck a debate moderated by Megyn Kelly, leading to his sham fundraiser for veterans.
So don't feel bad about being unsure, and don't be afraid to change your mind. There's strength in recognizing when something doesn't feel right. Don't believe the hype about having to attend the most prestigious college in order to lead a successful life.
Testing companies do not want us to know that Common Core and its high-stakes testing regime are a disaster that do a grave disservice to this nation's children.
Our marriage has taught me that equality means giving both partners an equal say and living a life of selfless and thoughtful action. In a healthy relationship where you are growing spiritually and emotionally, you will be pushed to do things you've never considered.
A letter in support of the U.S. Department of Labor's new overtime rule, from the perspective of one nonprofit.
BERLIN -- Western society is becoming starkly divided, pulled to the fringes of politics -- both right and left.
It's great to be part of a community. In a community, such as the various Jewish communities, you have people to turn to, who will mobilize for you and share your joys and your challenges. Except when you don't.
