If you are not sure where you stand on the Iran deal, I made a handy flowchart to help you figure it out.
This week brought powerful reminders of what happens when a government fails its citizens. On Wednesday, as the nation continued to mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's unnecessarily tragic destruction of a uniquely American city, the nation woke to yet another uniquely American tragedy, as two Roanoke-based news staffers -- reporter Alison Parker, and cameraman Adam Ward -- were gunned down on live television. It was the beginning of a news cycle we know all too well: shock, outrage, calls for sensible guns laws, and then, if past is prologue, nothing. Since the Newtown shootings in 2012, nearly 85,000 Americans have been killed by guns -- yet common sense gun legislation proposed at the time by President Obama continues to languish. On Thursday, the president called Katrina "a man-made disaster, a failure of government to look out for its own citizens." The same could be said of Roanoke.

At our just-completed summer meeting of the Democratic National Committee, we circulated a "Special Letter to the President" wherein we asked our DNC colleagues to sign the letter supporting President Barack Obama's leadership in negotiating an agreement that would place strict limits on Iran's nuclear program.
The President did the right thing by going to struggling neighborhoods and spending time with the young people who could see in a man who, through the dedication, love and hard work, a mirror of themselves and what they too could accomplish.
The entire Trump phenomenon reminds me of a basic rule from the world of magical/fantasy fiction. It's not quite Asimov's "three laws of robotics," but it's still been used my many authors who write about wizards casting dangerous spells.
This is a step in a very positive direction. However the president can't get an "A" in my book until his administration does something to address the eco-education gap among adults.
Republican Senator Bob Corker addressed his concerns with the Iran Nuclear Deal, pointing out that Iran poses a threat to the stability in the Middle East as well as the security of Israel.
We have been witnessing the most biased reporting of any election I have ever seen. This isn't only about FOX news spouting lies and bringing racists on to attack President Obama. This is about the media apparently doing all it can to bring down Hillary Clinton.
While Congress is in the middle of its summer recess, President Obama expressed his displeasure with Congress's failure to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank as well as pass a balanced budget. Obama believes their inaction has negatively impacted American jobs and the economy.
Now is the time for Democrats to rally and speak in unison about the economic performance under this president, something Republicans orchestrate so well. While not stellar and considering we were on the brink of collapse, Obama's economic performance is praiseworthy.
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.

Expressions of populist anger, resentment toward unresponsive government institutions, and deep-seated frustration with "politics as usual" have dominated the rhetoric surrounding the Republican Party's ongoing presidential primary campaign.
