Heaven help justice in America if Mitt Romney is given the power to turn the Supreme Court of the United States into his great gift to the far right of the Republican party.
Most of us women may not have access to their billions of dollars, but we can and must use our votes to let them know: Social Security is ours, and we will continue to protect it for generations to come.
For Catholics and other Christians, the defiance of disobedience is striking. Often people do not ask God what his will is for their life -- instead, they tell God what it ought to be. However, no one can believe in God and defy him too. Belief in God means reliance, not defiance.
If you believe certain Republicans who have anointed Mitt Romney as the next president, I have a binder full of reasons they are wrong.
President Obama's support for the freedom to marry is a significant milestone, not only for the LGBT community, but for all Americans.
Through the handshake we establish the level of trust between ourselves and the other individual. We divine earnestness, truthfulness, and we measure the depth of friendship or deceit in the other party.

After the first presidential debate, which gave Romney a four-point bounce, nobody is doubting the debates' importance. But as we ready for tonight's round two, I'm wondering: What exactly are the debates teaching us about the candidates? As they're presently constituted, they don't give an accurate idea of what a candidate might be like as a president. Take the prohibition on notes -- when is a sitting president ever going to be faced with a situation in which he's going to need to make an important decision without availing himself of any outside information? It's fun to see how a candidate responds to a zinger, but it'd be much more instructive to see how a candidate goes about seeking information that he doesn't know. So what about at least one debate that is structured to resemble the decision-making process a president would actually go through in office?
