I've never voted for a Republican in my life, but I'm tired of terrorism causing us never-ending wars and political paranoia at home. If it's a choice between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul in 2016, I'm jettisoning many of my liberal values to vote for the Kentucky Senator.
Ralph, for whatever reason, your vicious, personal caricature of Hillary Clinton has trashed a great friend of the consumer movement. Don't compound the error you made in 2000.
When I grew up you could walk into a voting booth and just swing a single lever to vote the entire party line. Now, instead, we have entered what I call the Era of Charismatic Politics, where personalities determine elections, rather than parties. This changes the landscape, and helps us understand what is to come.
Big, successful companies are generally running on a proven template, which is flexible only in degrees. A small business, especially when you own it yourself, is another story. You're free to make your own mistakes. That's the risk. The huge plus is that the success belongs to you.
Thanks to social networking, search engines, dating apps, access for a small fee to arrest records and the magical world of online hook-ups you should never suffer with the date from hell.
Luminaries of fashion, politics and entertainment attended the mass to honor the life of one of the greatest fashion stars of 20th century.

There are three reasons why Democrats benefit from a Republican controlled Congress and a country that's placed their hopes on conservative politics to change the course of our nation.
As recriminations continue over whose fault it is that Democrats lost the Senate, one potential positive is Hillary Rodham Clinton will be able to run full-out against the ultra-conservative Congress.
I live in Oregon and we just legalized recreational use of marijuana. I may need to smoke some, but for medicinal reasons, to create a new mental space to make sense out of how the country voted Tuesday. Welcome to our society of colossal contradictions.
Teachers have learned a lesson the hard way, and it should not be lost on the Democratic Party, the Obama administration, or Hillary Clinton. We now understand how hard it is to do our job, and serve our students with one hand, as we fend off test-driven reform with the other.
If and when she announces her candidacy for president, I suggest she express her resolve to bring full employment with fair wages to America, and announce a working group including Nobel laureates and leading economic thinkers to develop bold ideas to make full employment happen.
The results were brutal, but expected and not out of line with other second-term midterm elections. That being said, there are a few silver linings that bode well for Dems and progressives.
Republican control in both houses of Congress might not actually be the worst thing for the Obama administration. It might actually be to Obama's advantage on two key issues -- trade and immigration.
So far there haven't been very many progressives willing to stick their head out there and say they're willing to take on Team Hillary. I understand that the Washington media is saying that she can't be beat. That's hilarious. Isn't that exactly what they said in 2008?
