Until Bernie's revolution recognizes and embraces the real struggle we have between us and a free and just society, and honors those who have taken risks to bring us closer to that day, I think I'll be writing in Edward Snowden on election day.
Some people are unwilling or unable to evolve. They overlay that archaic self with false layers that look like growth and change, but are not. Their inner two-year-old is not only alive, but remains dominant.
After watching the first Democratic debate, it was not as entertaining as the Republican one, but politics isn't supposed to be entertaining.
Vice President Joe Biden is either playing coy with his intentions, or is genuinely torn about whether he wants to run in the 2016 election. But after a good showing for all of the Democratic candidates in the first debate, the party demonstrated they don't need Biden to rescue them.
You're fired and other such coldhearted winners and losers competitions are poor excuses for entertainment, but far more dangerous prescriptions for our children's education.
If you ask people whose paychecks depend upon media organizations, you'll hear how Hillary won. If you ask Americans who won, they're likely to say that Bernie Sanders or Martin O'Malley gave us the most inspiring answers.
