This week, the Republican presidential field is going to double, from three candidates to six. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio have all previously officially announced their candidacies, and this week they will be joined by Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Mike Huckabee.
The GOP can never pass up an opportunity to make themselves look like complete buffoons, and a protest following the funeral for Freddy Gray, who died from a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody, is no exception. Why display compassion, understanding, and leadership when you can jump on the opportunity to display disdain, contempt, and bigotry?
Attacks must hurt Hillary personally when her record in public life has never been shown to be anything but honest. She has made a career of speaking out for those who can't speak out for themselves and fighting for equality and the civil and human rights of those who have been oppressed.
If The New York Times has decided to throw its hat into Murdoch's ring this campaign season, even just occasionally, as with Clinton Cash and The Tangled Clinton Web, the results for Democrats could be troubling. Conservative misinformation is always most dangerous when it's given legitimacy it doesn't deserve.
Men have run the world for a long time. We can easily see where this unbalanced and abusive gender dominance, including "manly Christianity," has gotten us. It is ugly and destructive. It is beyond time to bring women to the table at both local and high, global levels for peace and security.
Eager to champion anyone who speaks out against gays, blacks, women, Hispanics and especially Muslims, these people will point guns at federal officers, write checks to bigoted restaurant owners and vote in extremist politicians who in turn vote for heinous hate legislation like the kind we saw in Indiana.
You've seen the picture, no doubt a simple case of atmospheric phenomenon meets quick-fingered White House photographer. Or is it?
Never before has Republican flailing been on such vivid display, nor has the right's disconnect from mainstream American opinion been more glaring. We should seize the moment and make the GOP pay a heavy price.
Well...have I got good news for you! When the planet Jupiter passes through your first House the "gods of self-improvement and confidence" beckon your door. For one whole year Jupiter becomes your personal teacher and mentor smiling at you, urging you to be all you can be.
Last night, during a segment on The Kelly File, I asserted that U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) took to the House floor to make a claim that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya. That assertion was incorrect, and for that I apologize.
In the Arkansas of my growing up, not only was smart good, but the prevailing philosophy was always to do the right thing, to show other people dignity, and to honor the common man. I'm sad to say that those days are gone. In today's Arkansas, we can't recognize a lie when it's spoon-fed to us, and we don't want to help anyone who isn't as white-bread as we are.
These states, with their history of hatred and discrimination, have the audacity to say they are disciples of Jesus and practice the principles of the Bible.
In looking for more images that tell a story we may find ourselves forced to dig deeper and our writing may get better, too. It may also make news and opinion writing more fulfilling and representative. After all, what haven't we said already?
Why would she now call further attention to her lies and obfuscations of the truth nearly six years after she abandoned her governorship? Because it pays for her to do so.
