In 2016, the F-word is dirtier than ever, and sadly, "feminism" is even tougher to utter for some than it is to use the curse word. It seems these days, not only do women struggle with self-identifying as a feminist (I'm a feminist but...), but there are legions of anti-feminists.

Kris Hermes | Posted 06.30.2013 | Politics
Kris Hermes

The pattern of using grand juries as secret forums to ask activists what organizations they belong to, who they associate with and to scrutinize their political beliefs on the basis of "Americanism" closely parallels the hearings held by the House Subcommittee on Unamerican Activities.

Steven Kurlander | Posted 06.26.2013 | Crime
Steven Kurlander

The lack of reference to American historical precedent over the last two centuries, which is replete with similar instances of mass violence and bombings resulting from unabated reverence for political and/or religious teachings, incorrectly builds the significance of the Boston bombings.

The president has to hold firm, even if that means shutting down government for a spell. Perhaps then the mainstream Republican Party will expel the radicals and proclaim they are not against government, in general.
