You can say, and even believe, that the U.S. has the best health care system in the world if, as I did for many years, you associate only with other folks who share the same world view as you do and if you watch, read and listen to the media that reinforce your preconceived notions.
When you build a skyscraper using steel beams you build it using crossbeams. When these buildings come down, there is a high chance some of those cros...
The Ukrainian crisis has nothing to do with Benghazi, nor is it the result of a weak American president. Now the question is will Putin really want to take the off ramp or deescalate tensions? Or might he be inclined to play this chess match out in a different way?
At the time, the Bush White House sounded an awful lot like today's Obama White House. Yet unlike today, the Putin-led excursion in 2008 completely failed to spark the panicked rhetoric that's become Fox News' trademark since Russian troops crossed over into Ukraine last week.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has a mission of ensuring the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination. This mission is not bounded by political party or viewpoint.
If I hear one more member of the Millennial generation tell me how "not political" they are, or how disinterested they are in the current affairs of this country, I cannot be held responsible for my reaction.
I went through a remarkably similar exercise with O'Reilly back in early 2011, after he completely mischaracterized something I said that apparently contradicted his worldview.
A new study in Massachusetts is providing evidence that the reform law passed in that state in 2006, and which served as the model for the Affordable Care Act, is indeed making a significant dent in bankruptcy filings.

Yet Nugent enjoys deep ties with Republican campaigns all across the country. When those ties receive media scrutiny, they cannot be defended.
With a film so beloved, I guess it's inevitable that there would be a remake. But instead of being a toothless, needless, sanitized imitation, I'm happy to report that the new RoboCop is willing to make significant changes and swing even harder at its political commentary.
Doesn't it concern some among the Democratic leadership that the healthcare law may create lots of trouble for the party if all of its aspects have not had time to work out the kinks well before the 2016 election?
Priebus can cut off contact with liberal media outlets to protest claims that he feels are unjust; however, if he is truly dedicated to reestablishing the Republican Party, he could start by looking in the mirror first because as these examples show there is nothing the liberal media can say that will make Republicans look worse than their own actions do.
The movers and shakers in the evangelical world know they're living in and perpetrating a fantasy land.
If MSNBC cared about not presenting liberals as sniveling cowards, they would never go through these debasing apologies one after another. But they don't care about that because the guy who runs the network doesn't give a damn about how progressives look, because he isn't one of them.
