Holy product placement. Millions of us watched the monumentally popular Pope Francis drive off in his four-door Fiat 500S. Don't you assume this car w...
This fight for speaker may only last for a few weeks, but the battle for the party will last for much longer. This will drag into the presidential elections in 2016. The earthquake that is breaking the party apart is massive and an open GOP civil war is here now.
Unfortunately, all of the stands taken by each these interest groups seems intractable. That means we will be talking about another mass shooting in about 150 days. Then the conversation about what needs to be done will begin again. And nothing will change.
The shock of this revelation was many-fold: AIDS was considered to be a gay disease, and here was the fantasy he-man -- a likable, non-threatening Hollywood action figure, admired by men and lusted after by women, proclaiming that he was gay.
Eventually, even the NFL wasn't "extreme" enough for our tastes, and someone created the XFL, where even the meager safety precautions put in place by the NFL were eliminated.
The daunting takeaway from Stanley Nelson's "Black Panther Party: Vanguard of Revolution" is that almost every issue that gave rise to the Black Panther Party has yet to be resolved.
So if guys like Trump must have it this way--regardless of whether it's because hatred is politically expedient or because they really feel that way--it should be understood that there is no place for them in the world of rock and roll. It's time to accept it and move on.
All Republicans candidates, even those not named Trump, promise to make America great again. That implies, of course, that America is in decline now. That narrative of decline is an historical argument: We were great once, but we aren't any more.
There's nothing partisan about Pope Francis's statements like these. Time and time again, he's simply noted that there are political solutions to moral problems -- and that failing to reach these solutions is a moral failure, not just a political one.
It is ironic, bordering on demagogic, how Republicans pick and choose what parts of the constitution they fetishize!
When the leading Republican candidates for president gathered in the Reagan Library for the CNN debate last week, they should have taken time to look up what President Reagan said about environmental issues like global warming.
The view that the constitution does not require birthrate citizenship is held by a handful of scholars and not "many," as Trump boasts.
The data suggests former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is the most similar to Reagan, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and businessman Donald Trump tied for second place.
CNN was (obviously) baiting everyone into getting into little personal spats, which did happen a number of times, but more than just fireworks this did provoke some interesting back-and-forth exchanges between candidates with differing (even, at times, opposing) viewpoints.
It is predictable that many will gush over Ronald Reagan tonight. But let's remember that Ronald Reagan amplified a war on people of the United States that continues to haunt us today. And it is time for our leaders to find an exit strategy from this unwinnable war.
I never thought I'd say these words: Republicans, listen to Reagan--on immigration. As the Republican candidates for president prepare to face off in their next debate at the Ronald Reagan Library in California, they'll be tripping over themselves to prove that they are the new Reagan.
