You are interfering with our democratic process in a blunt, unforgivable manner. I hope that our future leaders, whoever they may be, won't forget it.
2. The Curmudgeons: originally hail from Canada, the Northeast, or the Midwest, and virtually roll their eyes at any precipitous snow-related hand-wringing.
There aren't any justifiable reasons that the alarming school-to-prison pipeline trends should continue. These systemic issues don't just take a village to address; it takes a nation and a world to resolve any ongoing and preventable injustices.
A student debt "jubilee" would reflect both the values upon which this nation was founded, and the economic principles which have sustained it through its greatest periods of growth and prosperity. It is time for a truly transformative idea: Let's Abolish All Student Loan Debt in America.
Many visitors to Maryland's historic Old State House are eager to see the Senate Chamber where Gen. George Washington resigned his commission to the Congress, meeting there in December, 1783.
The New York Times reported last week that in the closed-door Republican Senate Caucus retreat, Republican Leader Senator Mitch McConnell "encouraged the Republican troops to refocus policy on the stagnant middle class." That would be like asking the wolves of the world to stop hunting and refocus on cultivating asparagus.
The fact that she's forced to play the role of the Holder antithesis says less about Lynch than it does about the ruthless determination of GOP congressional leaders to purge any and all residue of Holder's effective, and much need activist tenure as Attorney General from political life.
The use of terms in the brief such as "straightforward" and "plain meaning" are those we've been pushing for years, and it's gratifying to see them spoken by the government.

Finally, just a few months ago, Tavenner said of the website that we should expect "visible improvement, but not perfection." That is the sort of humility we should have been hearing all along.
Marijuana is now the nation's fastest-growing industry. The legal marijuana industry brought in $2.4 billion last year, so it's certainly no longer any sort of laughing matter. That figure represents an increase of a whopping 74 percent in one year's time, and it is estimated that the total legal market could be worth $11 billion as soon as 2019.
Over the last few months, things have been looking good for keeping the Internet open to everyone. A little too good, as far as Congress is concerned, which is why members and the corporate lobbyists who write them hefty checks have launched a last-ditch legislative effort to scuttle net neutrality.
For all of the little girls out there who want to be ice skaters, Sasha says she wants them to stick with skating, no matter what.
Yes Mr. Boteach, Bibi should concern himself with offending Obama, because American public opinion isn't guaranteed forever. A less overt and obnoxious approach than siding with a rival political party when presenting Israel's security objectives would be good for everyone.
I'm an agent who is all about getting clients a good deal; I love when people pay below list price. I even tell them this in our first meeting. But sadly, that strategy isn't going to work this spring.
