To make America safer, here are some of the Republican suggestions for alternative endings to America's favorite films.
The deathblow to xenophobia against Syrian refugees here was the actual identities of the attackers--virtually all of those involved, aside from the dead owner of the passport, were either French or Belgian.
"Plenty Ladylike" is a warts and all memoir that provides a walk down memory lane of the bad old days of rampant sexism. It is equally a story about triumph. While McCaskill admits to crying at some of the insults hurled at her, she, for the most part, let them fuel her rise to the US Senate.
Here are my opening remarks to the voters of Maryland's 8th Congressional District at my first public debate since entering the race on October 5, 2015. The Democratic primary will be held on April 26, 2016 and will elect a successor to Rep. Chris Van Hollen.

Now that Congress has agreed to an overall budget for the next two years and raised the debt ceiling until 2017, and the U.S. House of Representatives has a new speaker in U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the early conventional wisdom is that Washington has finally and mercifully turned the corner on governing by crisis.
Given the current global chaos, which unfortunately our country is in the midst of, one wonders whether our badly broken tax system, political paralys...
When it comes to criminal justice, the nation is at a crossroads. There is widespread agreement that too many are in prison for too long. Saturday night would be an ideal time for one of the candidates to begin demonstrating leadership on this issue.
