Donald Trump's startling ascendancy is primarily seen as a manifestation of nearly a half-century of white working and lower middle-class economic decline and status anxiety rooted in economic globalization, changing demographics, and the improved opportunities for non-whites and women in American society.

I can't fall back to sleep. How many others are similarly afflicted? Is Donald Trump turning half the country into a nation of sleep-deprived zombies? I once read resting is just as recuperative as sleeping. No way!

Most of those who call her out dismiss her as a bigot, but after analyzing a number of her videos, I honestly don't think she is. She is, however, extremely angry about issues that she isn't very well-versed on.

How very dare you, Ms. Clinton? How dare you have a mind of your own? How dare you be bright and powerful? How dare you ask for what you want and need? Don't you know these rights are still exclusively for white, Christian, cisgender, able-bodied, heterosexual men?

Kim Kardashian certainly isn't a saint, and some of her actions are questionable. There is nothing wrong with aiming the criticism at her actual actions or work. However, if you are still resorting to calling Kardashian misogynistic names, it's you who has the problem and it's you who really needs help.

The Thickest Of Skins Won't Stop A Bullet

Janis Irwin | Posted 07.06.2016 | Canada Politics
Janis Irwin

The senseless killing of British MP Jo Cox is "a manifestation of a coarseness in our politics and hatred toward the other that we must not tolerate." That from American politician Gabby Giffords, herself the target of an assassination attempt. We must do better. We must hold each other to account. We must condemn threats against women in politics, because the death of Jo Cox shows what can happen when threats are actualized. We must not let threatening, misogynistic, or hateful discourse online or elsewhere go unopposed. We must not let hate win and we must not let people try to tell us that we cannot be better.
