Much of the opposition to Mars exploration is based on disinformation and distraction tactics that imply or even claim outright that Mars would bust the budget or endanger Social Security, which, given actual budgetary facts and context, is preposterous.

Israel's President Should Think Twice Before Asking Netanyahu to Form a Government

Paul Abrams | Posted 03.22.2015 | Politics
Paul Abrams

Just when Israel's existence and influence on the world stage is most important for Jews around the world, it cannot afford to risk that for the self-aggrandizement of Benjamin Netanyahu. The way he won his election has weakened Israel, destroyed its credibility and made it far less secure.

Paul Gunther

With the decision pending in just a couple of weeks on Library #14 for President #44, the binding force of these successive projects is the fact that there is not and never should be a single political narrative. Such shifting values rely instead on the bedrock of freedom to sustain the dynamic bonds of the social contract it upholds.

Hillary Clinton has been a focus of the media for nearly five decades since that first speech in 1969. She has spoken out about her successes and failures; her life's goals and her vision for a better future for all to crowds large and small from Beijing to Appalachia.

The Republican Party and the political media world are already off to the 2016 horse races. It is way too early for any real analysis of the public's mood, but that doesn't stop the oddsmaking within the Beltway. After all, the Democratic nomination race is setting up to be a snoozer, so why not get started obsessing over the Republican race?

President Obama spoke about a lot of things in his hour-and-10-minute State of the Union address last night, but there's one thing he didn't mention: the caps on Pentagon spending required by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

Politician Random Accountability Test (P-RAT)

Mark Goulston, M.D.

Perhaps I have this wrong and I am hopelessly naive (or idealistic), but even though President Obama was elected as a Democrat, once elected isn't his constituency the entire American population, and isn't he supposed to serve all of them to the best of his ability?

While Hillary will most likely be the Democratic nominee, Bernie Sanders is thinking of running as well.

The Best Idea for 2014 was requiring police to wear body cameras. This idea was so good it actually cut across the lines of the protestors and the supporters of police. Many on both sides of that divide support the idea, for what boils down to the same reason: the camera doesn't lie.

Loath as we are to admit it, there was no single Biggest Winner Of 2014, because the award must be handed, collectively, to the Republican Party. A case could be made for Mitch McConnell, since he will win the biggest prize of any Republican next year: control of the United States Senate.

Americans have voted for two presidents in a row whose main campaign message was they were going to bring the country together, fix the divisiveness in D.C., and build consensus across the aisle. And in the aftermath of Obama and Bush, the country is coming away more polarized and governance more dysfunctional.
