Black lives do matter. Nonetheless, as a result of liberal lethargy and conservative antipathy, in many parts of the US blacks are second-class citizens, at the mercy of local police and unable to gain access to decent jobs, housing, healthcare, and the other aspects of a middle-class life.
He's ridin' high in the polls. He's maintained altitude longer than most of the pundits predicted he could or would. And the media is compelled to cover (smother) him as long as his numbers hold. But set aside the circus and prognostications for a moment.
There's a new kind of language being used around the Iran nuclear deal recently negotiated in Vienna. We can call it "Trump Talk," defined as a drumbeat of outrageous political speech that is historically inaccurate, intellectually dishonest and even deceptive, morally and spiritually offensive and willfully tone deaf.
Donald Trump has broken the political contract with my party. The RNC should return the favor and bar him from the debates, even if it costs us the election
Why has Cecil galvanized us so, when clearly there are equally horrific events taking place all over everywhere?
Not every new mom is able or willing to stay at home after the birth of her child so that she can pump breast milk in the privacy of her own home. No man will ever understand how difficult it is for a woman to go back to work full-time after the birth of a child, whether she wants to or not.
Donald Trump is just flyin' up those polls! Such an unexpected surprise and I couldn't be happier. We need more hate and nastiness in our elections to keep people honest...he'll be a great president.
I suspect that this sample is actually much more ideologically extreme and less willing to compromise than the elites who matter are. It's likely that, as in many years past, there will be a conflict between the more ideologically pure parts of the party and the more professional compromisers.
Donald Trump's run for the Presidency is serious and should be taken seriously by business owners like you and I.
As Trump continues down the campaign trail what he says may reveal less about him than what it psychologically reveals about us.
The very concept has moved from the surreal to the possible. So it's time to actually think about what it would mean for the country and for the Republican Party.
Ok, folks, I admit I spend too much time on Donald Trump. I need a 12 step program. Dr. Phil, help me!
The experience of witnessing the first black President in the history of the United States has indeed been a wonderment to behold. As it turned out, the grand old white establishment revealed itself to be petty, obstructionist, vindictive, and incompetent. History will remember them as such, to the extent history will remember them at all.
Thank you, Michael Cohen, for reminding us how intimately close to the surface of urbanity the assumption of rape is. Thank you for providing (irresponsible and inconceivably nasty) proof of what we need to change and who we need to keep our eye on. It's not always who we might suspect.
It seems as though some troublemakers never grow up. Long before Donald Trump became the political joke and juggernaut of the 2016 presidential elections, he was once a young prankster with a reputation for being a class clown.
Donald Trump is holding up a mirror to the Republicans, and the ugliness in that mirror is precisely what Americans need to see and understand.
