The Bernie Sandwich, named after Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, is known primarily for what isn't in it than what is in it. Here's how to make one.
The president's budget request for fiscal year 2017 includes large increases for new nuclear weapons, including new nuclear cruise missiles, new land-based ballistic missiles, and new nuclear-armed bombers and submarines.
1. Sanders has supported gay rights since the early '80s. Clinton has not. 2. Sanders wants to end the prohibition of marijuana. Clinton does not. 3. Sanders wants to end the death penalty. Clinton does not.
This is about whether the Democratic Party is going to care about inequality for the next decade. We are making a historical decision between two distinct ideological paradigms, not a choice between flavors of popcorn. This is important. Choose carefully.
As much as the possibility of a Trump presidency concerns me, I also fear that Trump's campaign might feed an impression that those with business school training and business experience are incapable of elevated political debate and successful governing.
It's 2016, and while England, Germany, Denmark, Chile, Argentina, India and even Pakistan have elected women heads of state, we still haven't even nominated a woman for our highest office. With Hillary Clinton, we have a female candidate who not only has a stronger resume than that of any of her rivals in either party, but who is firmly committed ensuring equal pay for women, and who has been uniquely outspoken on the impact that women have on the economy.
If you consider yourself a feminist and are supporting Sanders during this primary season, please ask yourself honestly: Do I support his policies in and of themselves? Or am I swayed to his side because of a lifetime of covert sexist microaggressions that leave me disgusted with "the establishment?"
The Bear Cub Club meets in the Tongass National Forest, which, with the Great Bear Rainforest is part of the Pacific temperate rainforest, the largest such ecosystem in existence.
I hate to burst your bubble, but Bernie Sanders will never win a general election to become president of the United States. And it's highly unlikely that, after an expected victory in his neighboring state of New Hampshire Tuesday, he'll have any meaningful nomination juice.

Today is the New Hampshire Primary... I know, you're freaking out right now! But really, some people are really excited about it - like Donald Trump a...
As the Democratic presidential race heats up, the debate on financial reform has taken a bizarre twist. Somehow the measure of a good reform is its ability to prevent another 2008-type financial crisis.
This morning I woke up to Gloria Steinem's ugly pronouncement about young women are supporting Bernie Sanders in order to please their boyfriends and decided that I should defend my 21-one-year-old daughter and myself. To quote Bernie: Enough is Enough.
But this phenomenon confounds me. In fact, I think it's 100% bogus. I find the concept of "undecideds" fundamentally disingenuous. Sorry, but I think you're nothing more than a bunch of attention-seekers who drag candidates, the media, your friends, family and co-workers into one very long ass-kissing marathon until election day. And you love every minute of it.
