If you're a Baby Boomer 'The Vietnam Conflict' still conjures up images of injustice, indifference and even hostility towards the men and women who put their lives on the line. Concerned citizens need to pay attention to the needs of our brave warriors both past and present.
Look up the definition of co-dependent in the dictionary and it indicates an unhealthy relationship between two people that is dysfunctional, leads to abusive behavior and is just plain old bad for both parties. I can't think of a better word to describe Trump's budding romance with the media.
In order for Canadian-born Cruz to be deemed eligible for the presidency he would have to rely on liberal, activist judges who view the Constitution as a living document. A true strict constructionist, which Cruz has always fancied himself, would have to say Cruz is NOT eligible.
Never go into a media interview without doing your homework. You should be clear about who the interviewer is and where he or she is coming from.
This is not to deny that President Obama has other reasons, as well, for how he chooses to describe terrorists. He is reluctant to call Islamic those who, he strongly believes, are in clear violation of the tenets of "true Islam." Yet is it not true that a bad Muslim is still a Muslim, just as a bad Christian is still a Christian, and a bad Jew, a Jew?
It is time -- long overdue, actually -- to revolutionize the news model in this country, certainly the conventional television and cable news model.
How many more times are we going to hear about a crazed gunman walking into a school armed and ready to kill? How many more innocent children need to die before we wake up and prepare our teachers to fight back?
One thing the theater community does well is celebrate its own. And Polly Bergen was a member of the theater community. Now, as I previously wrote, the League of American Theaters and Producers opted not to dim the lights for her.
At her recent press conference at the United Nations, the first question posed to Hillary Clinton, asked by a Turkish reporter, had to do with whether she felt she was being treated differently because she was a woman.
Polly Bergen was a real class act. She had a grace about her, an intangible quality that not many possess.
There are so many venues for talking these days, what's the point of trying to listen? We can post our every trivial thought on a thousand websites that reach a billion people instantly. I know people with full-time jobs who post so much on Facebook and Twitter, I marvel that they do any work -- unless of course their bosses are doing the same.
During the late 1980s, my mother heard a radio report about an educational method called "homeschooling." At the time, it was framed as a predominantly religious response in the U.S. to the secularization of schooling. But what mom saw was an opportunity to spend more time raising her children in the way she believed to be best.
Leave him up there as a glaring symbol of what your party stands for. Let Americans know who you support. Who you defend. Who you reward with power. Who you call a "man of character."
When Grimes says she is a Clinton Democrat, she is telling the truth, and when McConnell labels Grimes an Obama Democrat rather than a Clinton Democrat, he is bearing false witness. Shouldn't allegedly liberal-friendly media outlets such as MSNBC and the New Republic report this?
I thought Karl Rove's 2004 Swift Boating of John Kerry's Vietnam service record in the US Navy was pretty disgusting, but the recent smears against President Barack Obama for winning Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release have descended to a new low.
One cannot understand right-wing politics without realizing it is primarily a profit-making enterprise. And, like other profit-maximizing organizations, it does whatever is necessary to drive its own profits.
