When asked whether the respondent hoped there would be a female president, only 16 percent of GOP men and 20 percent of Republican women said yes. Could it be because of Sarah Palin?
America just celebrated the season of giving with Hanukkah and Christmas presents, year-end charity donations and soup kitchen volunteering. It is a time when Americans demonstrate the generosity, caring and kindness that define them as a people. Now, however, Americans may suffer the season of GOP taking.
Many GOP governors who loudly condemned Obamacare are secretly signing up for the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid Expansion. They aren't just Republicans in Democrat states. A growing number are from Southern conservative states, like Alabama and Tennessee.
Mayra Arce even resembles Esperanza, the protagonist in The House on Mango Street, one of the 80-plus books that were part of the Tucson Unified School District's K-12 Mexican-American studies curriculum before the program was dismantled under Arizona House Bill 2281. But Maya isn't the main character of a book. She's the main plaintiff in the lawsuit against Arizona.
Thanks to a Tar Heel friend who alerted me to issue ads in the North Carolina senate race, I now know that "for six years the policies of Barack Obama and Kay Hagan have dominated Washington." Karl Rove's American Crossroads, you see, is touting Republican Thom Tillis.
Speaking on a Denver radio show Tuesday, Colorado gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez threatened to sue the federal government if it doesn't enforce the nation's immigration laws.
Here are the first two paragraphs of Colorado senatorial candidate Cory Gardner's official position on immigration, as written on his congressional we...
This week provided some notable examples of Crime and Punishment in modern America. First, football star Ray Rice received a two-game suspension for knocking unconscious his then-fiancée in a hotel elevator. His coach promptly proclaimed Rice "a heck of a guy." Earlier in the week, Lane Johnson, another NFL player, was suspended four games for taking a performance enhancing drug -- a transgression apparently twice as bad, in the NFL's eyes, as beating up your soon-to-be-wife. In Arizona, the execution of murderer Joseph Wood went seriously awry, leaving him gasping for air for close to two hours before dying. Despite this grotesque death, Gov. Jan Brewer declared that Wood "did not suffer," but didn't explain how she could possibly know this. And, finally, there was a very different kind of punishment served up for our entertainment as the trailer for Fifty Shades of Gray was released, attracting nearly 7 million views in just 24 hours. Somewhere, the Marquis de Sade is smiling.
If we're not ashamed of executing our lowlifes -- strange that rich people never seem to get executed, what's that all about? -- then let the Bible be our guide and let's kill lots of people for all kinds of crimes and let's do it brutally.
Politicians and most other residents of the United States alike, from every rung along the full political spectrum, generally agree on one issue: Our immigration system is severely broken and needs fixing.
Will the GOP stand on the sidelines as Falcon9 and other Arizona Republicans waste millions more in taxpayer money and gut the educational system, all the while offending, alienating and oppressing the largest growing segment of voters in the nation?
In wide-ranging thoughts on immigration policy delivered over the weekend on a Denver radio station, Colorado gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez said states should enforce federal immigration law themselves, in the absence of federal action, "as Jan Brewer tried to do in Arizona."
Heidi Ganahl is the Founder and CEO of Camp Bow Wow, the largest and fastest growing pet care franchise in North America. Through her personal and pro...
Mississippi, I want you to know this: Someone has to show you that life should not be about hating. You might have, for the moment, won the battle but the war isn't over.
Birth control is widely used in this country, so how did we get to this point where access to it may be imperiled for millions of Americans under a strange theory of "religious liberty"?
First a reputation stain, then the pocketbook strains. That's what lawmakers the world over learned to expect recently when efforts to penalize LGBT people move forward.
