Finally, A Debate On Immigration Reform

Gov. Martin O'Malley | October 18, 2016 | Politics
The lack of debate over immigration does a disservice to our immigrant and Latino communities, and it overlooks the important role immigration reform plays in our nation's economic future.

Michelle Obama's White House Garden Will Grow On!

Karin Kloosterman | October 18, 2016 | DC
The garden started at 1100 square feet to more than double in size at 2800 square feet. It has walkways, wooden tables and benches. A stone reads: "White House Kitchen Garden, established in 2009 by First Lady Michelle Obama with the hopes of growing a healthier nation for our children."

If something similar does happen here, our lives as we know them may disappear as quickly as those of Weimar's Jewish community and the Jewish community of Muslim Spain.

Note To Trump: Like Gun Violence, Misogyny Is Deadly

Shannon Watts | October 11, 2016 | Women
So instead of arming all "moms, grandmothers and professional women" as the NRA suggests, what if we worked to change the culture and legal system that enables rapists?

While we all sit mesmerized by the latest embarrassment to America coming from the Trump campaign, we need to remember that winning an election requires positive action on behalf of your candidate.

No More 'Disastrous' Donald Trump! Vote For Hillary!

Hanna Bondarewska | October 10, 2016 | DC
I just watched the second presidential debate and all I heard so many times was the word "disaster" from the mouth of Mr. Donald Trump. I did not hear any simple answer from him, only bunch of accusations addressed to Mrs. Hillary Clinton. On the other hand, Mrs. Hillary Clinton kept her coolness and did try to answer all the questions and still make a specific point.

Climate Change; The Debate We Need

Gov. Martin O'Malley | October 5, 2016 | Politics
In Monday's debate, less than two minutes were spent discussing the biggest existential threat we face as a nation and globe: climate change. Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise, given that the Republican nominee doesn't even believe it exists, even going so far as to call it a "hoax" created by the Chinese.

U.S. Special Operations Command Details Dismal U.S. Military Record

Nick Turse | September 27, 2016 | Politics
An American century of carnage and combat has yielded many lessons learned, but not, it seems, the most important one when it comes to military conflict.

The Bible And Trans Persons Make The Pages Of The New York Times

Dana Beyer | September 26, 2016 | Queer Voices
It's obvious that trans visibility has progressed sufficiently that The Times would publish such an op-ed. That's a very good show of progress. The story, however, doesn't end there.

Fascism In A Clown Suit, And A Modest Proposal -- A Two-State Solution -- To Fix What Ails Us -- Part 2

Dana Beyer | September 26, 2016 | Queer Voices
Trump is a fascist. Win or lose, he has, with the connivance of the American corporate media which has provided him with billions of earned (free) media, permanently changed the nature of American politics.

Banks Used Low Wages, Job Insecurity To Force Employees To Commit Fraud

Dave Johnson | September 20, 2016 | Business
Banks profit from low wages and job insecurity in more ways than the obvious. They don't just pocket the wage differential; they use the poverty-level wages and job insecurity to force employees to do unethical things they couldn't otherwise get them to do.

Stop Suspending Driver's Licenses For Unpaid Fees

Omar Epps | September 15, 2016 | Politics
Suspending driver's licenses takes people who are poor, and traps them in debt. It takes Americans hanging on by a thread, and robs them of their livelihoods.
