Why Vote? What Difference Does It Make?

My significant other and I launched into a spirited debate, early this morning about the privilege of voting, with me arguing my position that it does make a difference, while she countered that it does not, noting, nothing changes of late, regardless of the multitudes of promises made.

Trump Is Growing on Me Like a Fungus

As much as I have mocked the idea, and tweeted jokes about it, in a weird way that I am reluctant to admit (which is why this sentence is going on for so long) the idea of a Donald Trump presidency is starting to grow on me. Like fungus maybe, but growing nonetheless.

Now that the first back-to-school day is officially passed in some states, I want to talk about something simple, yet understated, and in urgent need of addressing. One of my pet-peeves when driving anywhere in the U.S is to see rental cars passing yellow school buses on the streets.

As we take time as a country to reflect upon the issues that led up to the impetus for a March on Washington in 1963, I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon the statistical data I would share with Dr. King if he were still alive today.

Landmark Replicas That Are as Good as the Real Deal

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then some landmarks should be downright charmed. If you don't have the time or money to see the real thing, then opt for one of these faux versions of tourists attractions that are often imitated and nearly duplicated.

Hillary Needs A Vision

Amitai Etzioni | Posted 08.19.2015 | Politics
Amitai Etzioni

In recent days, the commentariat has made much out of the fact that news about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server has drowned out the policy proposals she has unveiled. These proposals indeed deserve public attention. However, they also reveal one of her campaign's great weaknesses: its tendency to treat the public as if it were a conglomerate of special interest groups. To be fair, Americans have interests and tend to favor elected officials who promise to address their particular concerns. However, we do not live by bread alone. We are also citizens of a country that most of us sense is increasingly headed in the wrong direction. We seek a leader who will share with us a vision of an America of which we can be proud, a narrative of what went wrong, and how we can make America whole again. Democrats need their own version of Reagan: someone with simple, straightforward, and compelling vision.

They are fed up with American leadership in every sector of our current culture, be they corporate, union, pharmaceutical, legal or political leaders. In their emotionally crowded lives American voters despair of being aided, let alone led by them.

You know the expression, "It's a hard job, but somebody has to do it"? Well, we love pizza, but we make this list as hard on ourselves as we can. It's one of The Daily Meal's most compulsively tracked rankings. Why? Because Americans love pizza.

The Atomic Bomb at 70: Its Fearsome Impact, Frightful Legacy, and Potential Stellar Redemption

As horrifying as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were, the quantum leap forward in destructive power afforded by the hydrogen bomb made our situation far more perilous. We've been fortunate that virtually unthinkable destruction has not ensued since the nuclear arms race of the 1950s.

Many say the right wing has an inferior sense of humor, and I guess it's only logical that the political right are not up for a laugh. After all, their politicians are the first to slash arts from the budget.

On my tour called the "Immortality Bus," I'm hoping to share with others that we should support a society and culture that is strongly pro-science and pro-longevity. My team and I plan to have embedded journalists aboard the bus, documenting our trip and enlivening the conversation.

The Iran Nuclear Deal

We are told by the deal's supporters that the only alternative to this deal is war. We respectfully disagree. We do not support war against Iran, nor have we ever advocated for the use of force, though we have always believed in a credible military option as a way of convincing Iran of our seriousness of purpose.

When the counter-protestors began the chant #AllLivesMatter what they were really saying is that black lives do not matter more than theirs. If these people sincerely believed that #AllLivesMatter, we would not be forced to chant and declare that #BlackLivesMatter.

For every impassioned citizen brandishing a burning American flag, there are five more Iranians with encouraging smiles, soliciting our nationality. Before we can respond "Swiss!" or "Australian!", our irreverent guide, Abdullah, has already unmasked us.
