Harold Lloyd | Posted 02.15.2017 | Politics
Harold Lloyd

The toothless babble of HB-2 "protects" no one other than perhaps employers whose employees have more restricted rights as a result. Let's repeal this political mess that backfired on McCrory and will backfire on Berger and Moore as well if we don't move on.

We can wake ourselves up by increasing our oxygen level by breathing deeply. Or conversely, we can put ourselves to sleep with a kind of meditation of shallow breathing, and repeating silently the words to the rhythmic "in" and "out" like a mantra.

Can we really mate for life?

Tanessa Holt | Posted 06.21.2016 | Women
Tanessa Holt

Knowing that I desire a life different than the one I live creates a thinking space in my mind where I wonder if I am meant to be with this (or any) person for the rest of my life, or if possibly I am meant to be with many (or few) people at different times throughout my life.

If the Democrats decide to run Joe Biden, it will be like a breath of fresh air in a very toxic campaign. They'll have a united party, Trump will be defeated and the world and we will be a much better place. I'm in with Biden.

Nationally, we are utterly incapable of collaboration, compromise or making any progress on solving problems. Yet in cities big and small, where most people live and work, the ability of residents and officials to solve problems has not abated and may actually have picked up.

The Horrible, No-Good, Disgusting, Offensive, Traitorous, Indispensable Thing We Call a Compromise.

Daniel P. Malito | Posted 03.18.2016 | Politics
Daniel P. Malito

Somewhere along the line in the last decade or so, our representatives got it into their heads that serving the American populace means spouting taglines and recording sound bytes while sternly waggling their finger at the other side.

Republicans see even the slightest reform to gun policy as a slippery slope that could eventually lead to proposals to abolish the Second Amendment which is unfortunate when there is a credible middle ground to be reached.
