Get ready to hum the lyrics from the song, "Get Happy!" You can forget your troubles, and get ready to chase all your cares away, because on October 9th Mercury retrograde is officially over. The planet Mercury goes "direct."
My lawyer is Jewish. I like Jews. Many of them, just like the Saudis, buy apartments from me. I can unite Jews and Arabs. I know how to do it! And the biggest Chinese bank is one of my tenants. I love the Chinese. They love me. Mel Gibson has a Trump condo, but many Jews work for me. Ivanka works for me. I love Israel.
At the moment both the Democratic and Republican primaries are being fiercely contested by candidates for whom a general election victory either defies the imagination of many or by establishment candidates who have proven themselves less able politicians with every passing day or week such as Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.
Fell so far, fell so fast. What happened?
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.
Even before he officially joined the race, many political prognosticators dubbed Gov. Scott Walker the candidate to beat for the presidential nomination. But time on the campaign trail reveals all flaws, and just 10 weeks after he announced he was running for president, Walker dropped out of the race.
So we're down to the paltry number of "only" 15 Republican candidates for president, as Scott Walker has now joined Rick Perry on the sidelines of the race.
I'm not one to invoke Higher Powers, but for those of us watchdogging corporate welfare, the early departures of candidates Rick Perry and Scott Walker are enough to suggest Divine Intervention. Two of the most outrageous subsidy sinners are gone. If Somebody Up There is meting out economic development justice, who's next to drop?
Individual-candidate Super PACs are used to allow a candidate and the candidate's supporters to circumvent these candidate limits and to provide six and seven-figure contributions to directly support the candidate.
There's a clear pathway to the Republican nomination for Carly Fiorina after last week's debate, this week's poll results and the departure of Scott Walker from the Republican race. It begins with an irony
To understand just how far Trump and Carson have veered into the territory of bigotry and racism, imagine if we were to substitute the word "Jew" for "Muslim." What if Trump's fan said to him: "We have a problem in this country. It's called Jews...When can we get rid of them?"

The recent debates of the Republican Presidential candidates sadly suggested to me as an educator how unlikely it would be for the viewers and voters to separate fact from fiction.

Republicans have staked out endless signature issues: shutting down the government, vilifying immigrants, denouncing rights like paid sick leave and equal pay because they are "women's issues," privatizing education, and--wait for it--obliterating the rights of working people to negotiate together for better wages and benefits that can sustain their families.
In a GOP field filthy with candidates who kiss up to corporate bosses and systematically suppress workers' wages, Walker is a stand out. But the whole motley GOP crew is determined to do whatever it takes to deny workers and their children economic mobility.
