The truth is that the agenda of the Koch brothers is to move this country from a democratic society with a strong middle class to an oligarchic form of society in which the economic and political life of the nation are controlled by a handful of billionaire families.

If the oil industry was utterly unprepared for a blowout in the balmy Gulf of Mexico, how in the world can we trust them in a treacherous environment like the Arctic?
Midterm elections are seven months away, but we're already seeing political ads targeting the Affordable Care Act and legislators who supported it. Americans for Prosperity, an organization that opposes the ACA, is running one such ad in a number of states, including Colorado.

Because of you, I am beginning again to believe in miracles. Because in the depth of despair over losing your beloved son you took me into your arms and guided me back onto a track where love is real, positive thinking is a choice that saves us, and miracles do happen.

Despite warnings and near-constant reminders, many governments and first-responder agencies haven't thought thoroughly about communicating with the public during a crisis. In fact, most haven't even written a crisis communications plan.
I see technology as I would a developing person who is transitioning from adolescence into adulthood. Much like a person's early life, these first 20 years have been filled with rapid development, exuberance, awkwardness, impulsivity, excess, impatience, a lack of wisdom and perspective, and missteps.
To have any hope of modernizing our energy production and distribution, we urgently need to rethink the way that we approve infrastructure projects in America.
Immigration reform is real for me, my family and my community. What we want is what every American family wants: to continue studying, working, raising our families, contributing to this country, and most importantly, staying together without the constant threat of deportation.

If Health Canada spent as much time and money on researching medical marijuana and creating a properly run system as they have on court battles against patients, then we'd all be a lot better off. But unless you've just taken a big bong-hit, I wouldn't hold your breath.
Small Business News And Trends,
A recent survey was conducted by PGi to report on telecommuting. Out of those surveyed, a total of 80 percent of knowledge workers (workers that do not rely on hands-on operations to conduct work) reported that there is actual benefit to working remotely. The survey discovered...
Last Wednesday, Senate Republicans blocked -- for the third time -- the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill proposing to close the pay gap between men and women. The goal of the bill -- the attainment of equal pay for equal work -- seems like a no-brainer, right? Women with the same job, and same qualifications, as men deserve to be paid the same. They do not deserve to be discriminated against in salary on the basis of gender. Seems obvious. And yet not a single Republican voted in favor of the Act, and many Americans no longer know what to think, either. The problem is that the message has been greatly muddled, twisted, and usurped, mostly for political gain.
Everyone's a media critic, including Archbishop Sam Aquila who told KNUS radio host Dan Caplis last week the media is distorting Pope Fancis, in part by failing to report that Satan is real. Aquila on Pope Francis press coverage: [Pope Francis] has a deep love for those that...
As so much of the current gun debate is generated by fear -- fear of crime, fear of violence, fear of government -- physicians should bring their clinical experiences in managing fear to this debate and thus provide patients with sound and effective alternatives to picking up a gun.
2014 Midterm Elections,
Trickle Down Economics,
The greatest danger currently facing all of us in America, and particularly progressives, is one of drift. As an economy, the United States is drifting along a low-growth path that is acclimatizing all of us to levels of unemployment which only a decade ago would have been treated as an outrage. As a society, the United States is drifting towards levels of income and wealth inequality so large that, if left unchallenged, will soon become irreversible. And as a political system, the United States is drifting towards a Republican sweep of both the House and the Senate in November unless the democratic left acts now to reverse what is in truth a carefully orchestrated and heavily funded great moving right show. Those of us of a progressive predisposition are drifting towards a political defeat of historic proportions -- one underpinned by an economic and social settlement of a highly conservative kind -- and we are doing so with what would appear to be only the slightest sense of alarm.
Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, the alleged triple murderer who defiantly yelled "Heil Hitler" from the back of a rain spattered patrol car in Overland Park, KS on Sunday afternoon is a notorious, though exiled, hate group leader with a criminal record that dates back decades.
Communities should think about threats to our giant, centralized grid and tell utilities, "Don't just protect the grid - help us fortify our essential services with distributed generation."
Realizing that nothing can pass this House of Representatives, organizers asked Obama for help, and felt betrayed after they received a no from the "Deporter in Chief."
Republicans will meet this weekend to pick candidates for their June primary election, and the most important storyline for reporters to track at the convention is, simply, how are Colorado Republicans getting along with each other these days? To hear former state GOP Chair Dick Wadhams tell it, historic divisions...
I have been asked about Miley Cyrus a handful of times during my travels abroad. I am often asked if I know someone named "John" who also lives in New York City. But the only question I have been asked on every coast of every country I've visited is: "Why do Americans love guns so much?"
