At age 55 and after rising to the heights in retailing, Ron Johnson certainly didn't need the money. Nor did he need the stress and aggravation of starting not only a business, but a revolutionary concept.
On June 15, environmental activists gathered at the Smithsonian Castle for the institution's Board of Regents meeting, and marched to the National Museum of Natural History to protest climate-denier-oil-baron David Koch being on the museum's advisory board.
After five years of stall tactics and changing the rules to whatever suits him, Senator Ron Johnson long ago forfeited whatever deference he feels he is owed. The president has a list of names and he should act, selecting the nominee who will best protect the rights of everyday people in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.
This whole "fact-checking" thing is kind of new for a lot of folks on the right. Kudos for the attempt, in my book.
Last week we got some very positive news about the upcoming campaign season: Former U.S. Senator -- and environmental champion -- Russ Feingold (D-Wisconsin) has announced that he's running for a rematch against dirty denier Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), who unseated him five years ago.
In the wake of the big election victories on November 4, many people are asking, "What's next for the push to legalize marijuana in the United States?"
John McCain would much rather have been elected president back in 2008, but for a man who was soundly defeated by Obama, being a Shadow President against that very same man is the perhaps the second-best thing that he could have hoped for.
Policing Ferguson: It Could Have Been Calmer, Sooner.
As the roar of protests echoes down W. Florissant Ave., one group struggles to make its voice heard from churches and outside police lines -- families of Ferguson.
There are a lot of reasons why Americans don't know how the law affects them or why they believe things about Obamcare that aren't true. One of the biggest reasons is the failure of many in the media to provide anything other than the most superficial coverage.
The five announced speakers at the annual conference of the lobbying group all reject the science of climate change, arguing that scientists are part of a conspiracy to attack the use of fossil fuels.
There was good news last week and bad news last week when it comes to the Affordable Care Act, and weirdly enough, for the first time possibly ever, it was the same news.
Why is it that conservatives, who tout their morality and fiscal responsibility, are so liberal with the stewardship of our planet's resources; so liberal with their interpretation of empirical evidence; so liberal with scientific acts?
It is clear that these climate change deniers are looking for any excuse to block steps to combat climate change and build a more sustainable energy future.
JC Penney has more than 100 years of retail success. It would be a shame if 17 months of regression wipes out the strides the company has made to be an inclusive, dynamic and trend-setting industry leader.
How does a leader initially hailed as the second-coming of Steve Jobs, ready to reinvent a 111-year-old staid retailer, crash and burn in such dramatic fashion? If JC Penney's board members had studied Amazon more closely, they might have discovered the answer.
