Rhetorical Analysis: Trump Is Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose

David Murray | July 22, 2016 | Politics
The world outside the Quicken Loans Arena was a lot better than the world Donald Trump described inside of it, to the cackling glee of some of the Americans sitting around me, and also the thoughtfulness and discerning applause of others.

Understanding Trump

George Lakoff | July 24, 2016 | Politics
Why does Donald Trump publicly insult other candidates and political leaders mercilessly? Quite simply, because he knows he can win an onstage TV insult game. In strict conservative eyes, that makes him a formidable winning candidate who deserves to be a winning candidate.

Volatile America

Robert Koehler | July 21, 2016 | Politics
When people are armed and outraged, the world so easily collapses into us vs. them. All complexity vanishes. People's life purpose clarifies into a simplistic certainty: Kill the enemy. Indeed, sacrifice your life to do so, if necessary.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg On Donald Trump: Unprecedented Or A Supreme Court Norm?

Barbra Streisand | July 15, 2016 | Politics
Strong, opinionated women, like "The Notorious RBG," are always criticized. She spoke what many people already feel about the utterly unqualified Donald Trump. Her comments deserve a deeper analysis beyond subjective punditry or sanctimonious Tweets.

Jenell Stewart | July 12, 2016 | Black Voices
Collectively our voices are effecting changes in creating a more inclusive standard of beauty. Everyday that we learn more about our hair and document our experiences publicly is another day we support a Black woman who is nervous about finally coming into her own and accepting her natural hair.

Rashard Mendenhall | July 12, 2016 | Sports
