Now, a photo's worth a thousand words and all of that, and I certainly agree that the pictures were not favorable to Clinton, since they seemed to reinforce the "Hillary has contempt for the public" theme.

Democracy is a relational form of government. True Relational Leadership aspires to navigate this country to its unifying destiny not its leaders' polarizing re-election. Hiring our next leader starts with selecting a WHO that will lead us together to WHAT.

#1 Most Important Ingredient to the Success of Marriage

Scott Gornto

By no means am I suggesting that this is easy, but a healthy and thriving marriage requires hard work from both partners. Sometimes this hard work means each spouse laying down his or her arms and finally admitting, "It's not you. It's me. I messed up. How can we make this better?"

Goodbye to Language: Brecht in 3-D

There's Godard's much talked about dog Roxy who has more than a cameo in Goodbye to Language and there's the subversive use of 3-D. In a kind of cinematic guerilla warfare, this highest level of perspectival illusion is usurped throughout the film.

Declaring War on Cultural War

Robert Hall

The upcoming 2014 congressional elections and the 2016 Presidential/congressional elections are a time of opportunity. The majority in this country are tired of cultural warfare. The vocal minority may be ruling but they have failed at governing. Sometimes war is necessary but it is always destructive and never sustainable.

Try It: Train Your Brain To Judge Less

Kripalu | Posted 12.21.2012 | Healthy Living

I've learned that the less I think my thoughts define who I am, the more I expand into the truth of my being. As I unstick me from my thoughts -- which is sometimes tender-painful, like peeling bare thighs off a hot seat in summer -- then the mean-girl stuff just floats away.

David Laufman | Posted 06.28.2012 | Politics

Thus, there is ample bipartisan precedent on which Mr. Machen may rely to refrain from prosecuting a congressional contempt citation against Attorney General Holder, and it is highly unlikely that he will even bring the matter before a grand jury.

Slowing Down 'Fast and Furious'

Alan B. Morrison

This is a situation where it would be in everyone's interest for the House not to vote on the proposed contempt citation, if the committee really wants to see the relevant documents and not just get into an election year fight.

The GOP Holds President Obama, Not Holder in Contempt

Earl Ofari Hutchinson | Posted 08.14.2012 | Politics
Earl Ofari Hutchinson

The longer GOP congressional leaders can keep Holder on the public hot seat, the more chance the GOP has of embedding the bogus notion that the Obama administration engages in a massive cover-up of its screw-ups, misdeeds, and unethical practices.
