Dr. Carson when given a chance to elucidate really came off as the mild-mannered articulate thinker that he is. It's hard to imagine he's ready for the role of the presidency, but he certainly was worth listening to. Problem is he's just not schooled or experienced enough on the issues.
As horrifying as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were, the quantum leap forward in destructive power afforded by the hydrogen bomb made our situation far more perilous. We've been fortunate that virtually unthinkable destruction has not ensued since the nuclear arms race of the 1950s.
It took the observation of a Facebook friend who's also worked with young adults to point it out to me. "Kids that bully are bad kids, but adults that bully are apparently funny." Trump is a bully.
My prediction is that as long as the economy continues to hobble along in its less-than-impressive-but-upwardly direction, you can expect to see more attention given to immigrants, the LGBT community, Iran and of course Donald Trump's latest bombshells and less attention to the small business community in the months ahead.
Everyone is talking Trump. The no-holds-barred billionaire businessman has riled up discontented conservatives and brought to light policy concerns th...
In this reality-TV world, who cares about global warming or rape culture or police brutality or gun control or racism or terrorism or the European Union or alternatives to oil if you have a thriving Twitter following?
The entire political punditry world has been holding its collective breath since last Thursday night, waiting for some polling numbers to interpret. But one question in particular seems to show some very bad news for the Republican Party.
Armies engage in mopping-up operations only after they secure victory, and the CPP did not spring like Venus from the brow of President Obama last week -- there's a long history here. The CPP is the keystone of one of the most dramatic and fundamental economic restructures in history.
The Republican Party doesn't seem to understand the fact that threats to the United States originate from the actions of human beings. These human beings resort to violence when they are marginalized by society to the point where they believe that the only way to better their country is to work around the democratic system through violence.
Megyn Kelly is a smart lawyer, a tough litigator and a hard questioner who played Trump like a skilled violinist. I look forward to a rematch in January 2016 when Fox News once again hosts a GOP Presidential debate -- that is, if Trump is still running and one of the other networks hasn't hired Kelly for something bigger than cable news.
We find ourselves once again caught up in the spectacle of another presidential election, and once again the majority of Americans are acting as if this election will make a difference and bring about change--as if the new boss will be any different from the old boss.
The longer he continues to dominate the polls, the larger that number will grow. As Joshua Green put it, "The GOP is about the become the party of Trump." But will Trump's bile be so toxic that it stains the party's nominee no matter what?
As the latest entry in that sequence, Megyn Kelly's Trump thumping doesn't seem surprising at all: it may have looked like new-found journalistic independence, but she was just faithfully following the company line.
Trump is beyond single-word descriptions, unlike his lackluster rivals in the Republican field. Trump's flamboyance is actually his cunning genius expertly concealed that enables the masses to identify with his message quickly and effortlessly.
Imagine how many more people a doctor would have to hire just to deal with a boatload of new insurers. Or to deal with a bunch of politicians who don't know what they're talking about.
Democrats can raise environmental issues throughout their campaign, but it is unlikely that their environmental views will differentiate them from their primary opponents who are also likely to be pro-environment.
