The smart move for the GOP would be to stop threatening to shut the government down once and for all, and to stop endangering the national economy with these absurd farces that would crash the economy if these threats even prevailed, which they will not.
Jacob Kornbluth's illuminating Inequality for All, which focuses on economist and scholar Robert Reich, probably won't reach the audience it needs to. They're too busy watching Fox News - or CNN or MSNBC, for that matter.
Watching President Barack Obama's speech to heads of state at the UN General Assembly summit this week in New York -- specifically his pointed priorit...
Right-wing ideologues don't like what Brooks said about Cruz? Too bad. Get over it, and get over yourselves.
There are 18 million Google hits for the search term "twerking." Yes, that abomination of a dance move (at least I think that's what it's supposed to be) made forever infamous via a gratuitous and depraved performance by a former Disney starlet. 18 million.
Google the word "dithering" together with the name Obama and out comes Charles Krauthammer calling him a ditherer over foreign policy, followed by Dic...
This month, the prospect of attacks on Syria has once again nudged immigration reform to the back burner in Congress. Is immigration reform doomed to failure once again?
If we only think of 9/11's victims as the ones in the planes and on the streets of America, we miss the chance to think of what caused 9/11, and the ways 9/11 has led to terror for the world at large.

In this case, it's the Australian elections. Conservative Tony Abbott led his Liberal-National coalition to a smashing victory over Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Saturday, leaving the Labor Party at a 100-year electoral low point.
George W. Bush will be remembered for many things, depending on your politics, but painting landscapes and animals probably won't be on your list.
The fact that 57,000 children will be denied access to Head Start this year should worry everyone. Because we cannot win the future without ensuring that every child reaches his or her full potential.
It was an unfortunate case of quantity over quality during my first day at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. While I saw six films, there were only a couple I could heartily recommend.
When the president takes the country to war... ...
I'm baffled by what Obama is doing and have been for more than a week. If he had determined to attack, which I think is highly questionable strategy, he should have done it right away, fast and hard. The U.S. Navy had the ships on station to carry out the strikes.
There has been a lot said in the last week comparing the Congressional resolution authorizing the use of force to punish Bashar al Assad's government for using chemical weapons to the resolution authorizing the Iraq War. Nothing could be further from the truth.
