Perhaps I will not break any new ground here, and, certainly, who cares what I think -- some writer/filmmaker who clearly has too much imagination and no sense of reality.
Congressman John K. Delaney, what are you talking about? In a recent Washington Post op-ed, headlined, "The last thing America needs? A left-wing version of the Tea Party," the Democratic congressman from Maryland scolds progressives and expresses his worry "about where some of the loudest voices in the room could take the Democratic Party." But the progressive agenda isn't "left wing." The progressive agenda is America's story -- from ending slavery to ending segregation to establishing a woman's right to vote to Social Security, the right to organize, and the fight for fair pay and against income inequality. Strip those from our history and you might as well contract America out to the US Chamber of Commerce the National Association of Manufacturers, and Karl Rove, Inc.

Republicans in my home state of North Carolina are trying to triple the existing harmful 24-hour delay before having an abortion (House Bill 465). The medical evidence has been clear for decades: delays of any source in obtaining an abortion increase the risk with no benefit to the woman.
If Rand Paul's a tree hugger, what absurd labels will come next? Is Phillip Morris now an anti-cancer advocate? Is Ronald McDonald an anti-obesity crusader? Does Mr. Peanut have a nut allergy? It's time to stop the charade. No amount of Paul's backyard compost is going to cover up the manure he's shoveling when he calls himself a tree hugger.
Americans' Exposure To Heat Extremes Could Rise 6-Fold By 2050 - exposing vastly more Americans to dangerous heat waves due to a combination of rising temperatures and rapid population growth in the South and West, a new study warns.
We have a duty to the LGBTQI movement, to this country, to not endorse political candidates who even remotely express hesitation towards wholeheartedly supporting same-sex marriage.
The President of the United States is tired. Barack Obama, who came into office with so much hope and promise in 2009, is now simply marking time in the White House, steeling his resolve against years of bitter, relentless defeats that have stripped away his once-inspiring loftiness of purpose.
