As Stop Patriarchy plans to fan out around Mississippi, it will be mobilizing outreach and disruptions to businesses against all forms of patriarchy and women's oppression -- from abortion rights to eliminating rape culture.
Donald Trump is holding up a mirror to the Republicans, and the ugliness in that mirror is precisely what Americans need to see and understand.
(1) Donald Trump once again (2) during a speech he gave yesterday (3). "(4)," Trump said, which immediately resulted in (5).
Will Trump be a factor all the way until 2016? It is hard to say, I would say virtually anyone with political savvy would have said such was ridiculous just a few months ago. That number is shrinking as Trump's popularity grows in the polls. We are told "Trump is crazy." But is he crazy like a fox?
There is something unnerving about the rush of Republican presidential candidates to go on record as standing firmly against women's reproductive rights. They do not have the vaguest notion of what it is like to be pregnant as a result of abuse, incest, assault or a multitude of other wrongs, or simply what it is like to be a woman denied control of her own body.
A bevy of Republican candidates get shut out of national primetime by Fox, but not Trump.
The fight here is not about religious freedom. The courts have already determined what is and isn't covered, and arguments like the one presented by Jeremy Tedesco show an ignorance to the facts in order to feign oppression.
Exactly one week ago, the GOP field for the 2016 presidential nomination expanded to 18 -- maybe. In fact, we don't know much about this possible 18th GOP contender beyond his name, a few unconfirmed biographical details, and the several policy positions he outlined in a lengthy but surprisingly focused YouTube video.
Senator Marco Rubio, the Republican presidential candidate from Florida, may be frustrated that his campaign is lacking traction, but there is no excuse for him to say that the president has "no class." His comment is a feeble attempt to get attention because he is lagging behind.
In their attempts to prove the cerebral cortex as unnecessary for pain perception and consciousness, Republicans have lazily attempted to simplify the very nature of how we perceive the world to half-explored "science." With their cowardly simplification of the situation, they will be left behind on the scientific and philosophical journey to the discovery of our deepest truths.
The Trump brawls have done us all the service of revealing a number of Republican candidates who certainly do not belong in the oval office.
After a series of ridiculous sound bites, Donald Trump gave me no choice but to compile his quotes into a rap (along with a few creative contributions for fusing.)
The new George W. Bush isn't named Bush. He's named Walker. Walker, whose entire political career has been in Wisconsin, is running as a Washington outsider. That's what George W. Bush did in 2000. If next year, voters are looking for the un-Obama, Walker's their man.
To imply that Bernie Sanders' style of Democratic Socialism even stands on the same side of the political spectrum as the National Socialism of the Nazi Party shows not only a total misunderstanding of history and political theory, but more importantly, it underscores yet again the dog whistle politics of neo-conservatism.
ALEC, its member organizations, and Walker seem to be in lock step, pushing a far-right agenda that does not serve average working families. Walker's full embrace of ALEC gives us a good window into the control he would give to corporations and ALEC if he became president.
Notice to the Voters: Donald Trump is the stall and you are the vics. Trump's role as the stall is to to get in the way of clear thinking, and hold your attention as long as possible with the hair, the hate, the beauty pageants and the clowning.
