In the words of author E. B. White, "All writing slants the way a writer leans, and no man is born perpendicular." But Breitbart tilted my writing to the point of near-unrecognizability, and crippled my work to the point of outright disbelief.

I hold both extremes - the Holocaust deniers and the Holocaust revisionists - as offensive to the good people who were all taken from us far too soon. Let them rest in peace. Let the truth prevail.

Discrimination laws protect Christians far more than gays in this country. They restrict a business owner from refusing to serve certain protected classes. At the same time the 1st Amendment protects free speech, and free speech includes the right not to speak.

Mike Weisser | Posted 02.07.2015 | Politics
Mike Weisser

I'm not saying that the Gun Control Act of 1968 is a perfect law. Far from it. But at the very least it does codify the idea that certain types of people simply should not be allowed to get access to guns.

I had a really hard time reading your piece about Ellie Goulding wearing a headdress. Even harder than Pharrell Williams, even harder than the usual headdress or Native American stereotyping pieces I come across on a daily basis.

Republicans hope to gain control of the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections by capitalizing on the president's unpopularity in several key Senate races. But an attempt to impeach the president would only strengthen the party's "obstructionist" image, and not sit well with a majority of the American public.
