I'm pretty sure that Inhofe must be reading different news feeds than I am, otherwise, how could he fail to be as concerned as I am? Below are some of my top anxieties, not necessarily in order of my angst:
President Barack Obama said Friday that conditions for black Americans have improved since he became president nearly six years ago. But as he said, blacks still lag behind whites.
Even Obama's supporters sometimes express frustration because the president has refused to act for the sake of acting, shoot from the hip, or jump to conclusions. His approach, no matter the issue, has been measured, studied, thoughtful, cerebral and yes, lawyerly.
Initiating and committing the full weight of the United States executive behind such a process would not only constitute the crowning foreign policy jewel in your legacy crown, but it just might also save ourselves from ourselves, too.
These last days of December I had scheduled meetings and in doing so found myself reporting on this year's progress of Less Cancer. We have reached ...
To those of us who are old enough to remember, Cuba has always been like a ghost neighbor, untouchable and distant as long as the Castro regime lasted. Time has run its course with old political excuses. It's a new day, with a brave smart man in the White House.
It's hard to overstate the sense of relief that was felt in both Washington and Havana as Obama and Castro announced a breakthrough in such long-running hostility. It's worth taking a moment to understand how both sides got to this point and why it portends a major shift in U.S. foreign policy and potentially, in Cuban society.
The best and most effective way to insure officer safety is still to strengthen proactive, positive police community dialogue, outreach and engagement. The Brown and Garner families and their supporters echoed that when they took great pains to repeat that the goal of protests was never anti-police but anti-police abuse.
Many orchids are now endangered or going extinct, as we destroy their special habitats. As it is, our exploding populations are changing the climate and irreversibly extinguishing much of the beautiful tapestry of life on Earth, and our mega life support systems, our ecosystems.
The midterms are behind us. In 2016, one thing any Democrat running for president must do is compare the record of Barack Obama (and Bill Clinton) to that of George W. Bush.
On the surface, this charitable giving may seem like the right thing to do for the holiday season. In reality, it's part of a nefarious plot being perpetrated by the lamestream media and Comrade Obama to turn true patriots into bleeding heart liberals and bring down this once-great nation.
Millions of Americans are still filing for bankruptcy because of medical debt, even though they have insurance. In 2015, families could be on the hook for 13,200 in out-of-pocket expenses before their coverage kicks in. That's far more than many household budgets will allow.
Forty-one million dollars. That's a serious piece of change. And it's the amount of tax revenue Ohioans stand to lose over the next five years if Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has his way.
Does hacking into a private entertainment corporation's computer files constitute an act of war? Against whom, exactly?
If all lives matter, then the response should be mutual outrage and remorse for the loss of life. That should include the lives of cops and citizens, whether black, white, or of any race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender.
Consider this: The federal government could, without any new laws, significantly restrict both the supply of, and demand for, fossil fuels. Only the state has the power to euthanize the fossil fuel industry. If the climate movement is serious about controlling Big Carbon it needs to get serious about Big Government.
