Presidential Candidates on Supporting Women in the Workforce

Rana Florida | Posted 11.19.2015 | Business
Rana Florida

I see it happening all the time -- women who went to Ivy League schools and who held highly-demanding, high-status, high-pay jobs -- deciding to stay at home after they have a baby. They all thought carefully about their decisions, weighing the pros and cons. Instead of the prison of a 9 to 5 work culture, they preferred to keep their brains sharp and stay connected by volunteering and sitting on boards.

Homecoming, Humor and Hasan: Minhaj à HA!

There's Glass Menage-erie. There's Nicky Minaj. There's ménage à trois. And then there's Hasan Minhaj. Think Deepak Chopra meets Chris Rock. Spiritual meets comical. Gandhi meets Woody. He's nimble yet noble, profound yet playful, a rebel with reverence.

Political Betrayal

Which presidential hopeful has displayed blatant willingness to sell out his neighbors for perceived personal gain? Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida is the man. He is betraying his home town of Miami by outlining a national energy policy that would accelerate sea level rise.

Donald Trump Channels Occupy Wall Street, and The Revolt Against The Ruling Elite

Trump, Sanders and the other outsiders will probably not win their party's presidential nominations. But the rage they are articulating is not going away. In all likelihood these Occupy issues will be co-opted by more establishment and semi-establishment figures like Rubio, Bush, Clinton, and Biden.

Marco Rubio and Hitler? Says Who?

I think Debbie Wasserman Schultz should apologize for issuing a statement with no basis in fact and wasting her time on a totally wrong-headed, insulting attack -- and for invoking the holiest day of the Jewish year to make her bogus points.

Rubio Will Likely Be the Republican Nominee

Sean McElwee | Posted 06.27.2015 | Politics
Sean McElwee

The Florida senator is the ideal candidate to expand the Reagan coalition while holding on to the conservative base, and he can take shots at Clinton that would sound hypocritical coming from Bush. While his power as a candidate has yet to emerge in the polls, a misstep by Bush will send him straight to the top.

Selfish Politicians Who Politicize Vaccination Endanger the Public

Parents can opt out of having their kids vaccinated for either philosophical or religious reasons, depending on the state. Posturing as a defender of individual liberty, when people already have it, is selfish political grandstanding and nothing more.

We have an immigration issue here today. People will risk their lives to get here to become part of the bigger, louder American Family. The problem isn't that these people are coming here -- the problem is we have part of our family who have forgotten what it was like to be Italian (or whatever group YOU come from).

Rubio for President?

Edward Flattau | Posted 11.18.2014 | Politics

To appeal to the tea party, with its distaste for big government and federal regulation, Senator Rubio has turned environmental flip-flopping into an art form.

"Tolerant" of Your Efforts to Treat Me Like a Second Class Citizen? Not!

John Mattras | Posted 10.04.2014 | Gay Voices
John Mattras

Ultimately, I do not care what personal opinions you hold about whether I or anyone in my community should be able to marry, or not. But when you act on that opinion and in any way impinge on our rights to do so, I do care. I will not "tolerate" it. Not now, not ever.

Hobby Lobby, Climate Change, and the GOP's Women Problem

Heather Taylor-Miesle | Posted 09.10.2014 | Politics

When did climate change become a women's issue? When women made it clear they care deeply about it. Women in battleground states understand (by a margin of 72 percent to 19 percent) that we have a moral obligation to future generations to make the air safer to breathe and the climate more stable.

Rubio's message is easy enough to understand: If Republicans don't act, Obama will, and we will have lost the chance to enact our preferred changes. It's clever on many levels.
