Appropriation of every type of visual art, music, dance... even cultural attributes has been taking place since the dawn of time.
If the United States electoral system seems a little convoluted to you, you're not the only one.
In an age where we talk incessantly about the virtues of equality, local empowerment, engagement, freedom of choice, small business and democracy, the forces of monopoly seem to be gaining ground, sowing elitist seeds that make society's relationships more volatile. Surely none of us play a role in all of this - or do we?
Many in the media took note of the massively authoritarian overtones in Donald Trump's Republican presidential nomination acceptance speech. How could they not?
It is time for all the allied countries of the free world who are now profound potential victims of terrorism to mobilize and do one mass relentless military strike against ISIS hitting them from all sides imaginable.
The work of achieving the America we dream of should not be the work of one group or another but all of us who call this country home. And we the people -- Black, Brown, White -- must not rest until all can claim that dream. And bring it to powerful, just fruition.
The coming presidential election could cause a liberty lover to commit ritual seppuku. A left-wing corporatist and friend of influence-peddlers will face off against an unprincipled populist who supports big government and carries protectionist and anti-immigration banners.

All this talk about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her dismissive comments about Donald Trump possibly harming Hillary Clinton seems to be wishful thinking on the part of the media and possibly just pseudo purist analysis on the part of political/legal observers.
So much death. Apparently, ISIS decided that the month of Ramadan was an extra special time for killing. A spokesman urged followers to "make it, wi...
For the past seven years, the British government has done something the Obama administration opted against, mounting a painstaking official inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Iraq War.
The Bush/Blair mindset that left them so confident about their right to rearrange other people's political furniture in a country far removed from their own is a mindset that has not gone away: and it needs to.
Last Wednesday, July 6th, was George W. Bush's 70th birthday and should have been an occasion for celebration. He got a present that he probably would rather not have received, however -- the long-awaited report on the British role in the invasion of Iraq.
It does not go far enough in criminalizing the actions of the Blair government with regard to its conduct in the lead-up to the war in Iraq, and it comes far too late to have any relevance in shaping public opinion in a manner which could have produced meaningful political results.
