In honor of Jeff Foxworthy's great shtick, here's a quick breakdown of progressive politics in 2016. You know you're a "Facebook Liberal," or a "Twitter Liberal," or a "Social Media Progressive" in 2016 when you enjoy spreading memes on Facebook and other social media platforms about the evils of the GOP.
If Bernie Sanders continues to improve his poll numbers and becomes a genuine threat to Hillary Clinton's nomination, undecided Democrats will increasingly hear from Clinton supporters that Mr. Sanders is not electable.
While the media is currently having lots of fun asking their hypothetical "gotcha" question over a non-existent Muslim candidate, the possibility that Bernie Sanders could become America's first Jewish president should be a valid topic for conversation in the midst of this campaign.
I know that doing something as seemingly small as telling the truth has a ripple effect. Change is often slow and deliberate, but it can happen if we speak up.
So here's my dare to Carly Fiorina. I dare you to watch images of countless kids who suffered from polio not that many years ago, or people today suffering from Ebola, Parkinson's disease, or the other afflictions listed above.
Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate our ever-so important growing demographic in the United States for our worldwide achievements and contributions to American culture.
The liberal establishment is shocked that their shallow assumptions about what moves the American body politic are being exposed as the facile consensus of those with a stake in the status quo -- intellectual, political and economic. A critical look at those premises reveals much about how skewed our public discourse has become.
An honest comparison between Clinton's actions in 2008 and the record of Bernie Sanders on racial and economic justice will lead to one conclusion: Bernie Sanders will win South Carolina and other Southern states, primarily because he's never utilized race as a means to win an election.
Fat Cats, Members of the 1 Percent, the Filthy Rich: Just kidding..... I come in peace and I come with a proposal -- an investment proposal and a course correction -- to restore and secure this great country going forward. You, America's wealthy class, are key to the American Renaissance.
Debates are better than monologues to inform voters, but what happens when a major cable channel refuses to ask follow-up questions of 11 conservatives who agree on almost all issues? Lowry and LaMarche debate how Fiorina/Trump/Jeb did, and what it means when a majority of a party supports or admires a kook?
Republicans have staked out endless signature issues: shutting down the government, vilifying immigrants, denouncing rights like paid sick leave and equal pay because they are "women's issues," privatizing education, and--wait for it--obliterating the rights of working people to negotiate together for better wages and benefits that can sustain their families.
I think socialism is becoming popular sooner than I expected. With technology inexorably solving scarcity as it eliminates good-paying jobs, a push for a more socialist approach has seemed to me to be inevitable. But it's happening faster than I thought
They call it the "Makeup Tax." The average woman spends $15,000 over her lifetime on makeup. And then there is the time, about 20 minutes a day -- or two weeks each year -- spent smoothing and blending and smearing. All this primping and preparing is worth it, we are told.
Sanders' candidacy has created a moment of truth for Democratic voters, testing how serious they are about changing the country's direction. We cannot be certain that even a President Sanders could loosen Big Money's stranglehold on our democracy. But we can be certain that neither of his rivals would even try.
