Gabby Giffords Super PAC Releases New Ad On Newtown Anniversary
For his actions, Snowden should be applauded, not vilified. He should be granted full immunity from prosecution. And he should be allowed to resume his life in the United States as a proud American citizen.
While today's debate asks whether inequality hurts growth, the oldsters among us remember the time when the received wisdom was pretty much the opposite.
If you are a member of the board of directors of a company that pays its workers so little that they need government subsidies to survive, isn't that a little embarrassing?
I am pro-meritocracy. I am a capitalist. And I believe the institutionalization of privilege is a threat to these ideals. Affluenza affects more than the world-view of wealthy teens. It threatens the structural integrity of our society.
If a half-dozen volunteers can keep a page with more than 4 million users from being a microphone for the antiscientific, is it too much to ask for newspapers to police their own editorial pages as proficiently?
If North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un had whispered to his uncle, "Looking forward to seeing you over the holidays" it would have taken the cake on this year's Top Ten List... but this year there were even stronger real contenders.
I can admire your trees and your lights in this dark season and your Santa with his merry laugh. But it all gets too serious when I see that manger with its empty cradle waiting for the birth of a baby whose horrible death will be blamed on me.
It's becoming increasingly clear that, at least politically, 2014 will be "The Year of Economic Populism." Now the question is, who gets to decide what that really means?
The U.S. did not enforce existing securities laws, so no one should have confidence that new Dodd-Frank rules will have any meaningful impact. The U.S. banking system seems to have captured its regulators, Congress and the Treasury.
While Spann's death created a stir at the time (the CIA rarely announces the deaths of its covert operatives), it was soon to be overshadowed by the deaths of thousands more Americans who would die fighting an emboldened Taliban insurgency and against Shiites and Sunnis in distant Iraq.
This grim anniversary of the Newtown, Conn., killings, with 28 dead, reminded us of that moment back in 2000 when Charlton Heston made his defiant boast at the NRA convention that gun control advocates would have to pry his rifle from his "cold, dead hands."
What makes the column still more revealing and sad is that, far from serving up an older but wiser man's humility, it recycles what Brooks has been saying quite often since even when he was younger and, one might have hoped, less cynical.
Barrett Brown is being "punished for the crime of taking citizenship seriously." This is clear: he stands for values of liberty, transparency and privacy; though soon prosecutors in Dallas will try to persuade a jury otherwise. Increasingly, conscious citizens know the true score.
Democrats bear as much responsibility as Republicans for allowing our once promising democracy to degenerate into a plutocracy of the irresponsible super-rich.
This bill brings much needed transparency to the patent litigation system, ensuring that trolls are clear about who they are and what activity is violating their specific patent.
Make no mistake: Here in D.C., the secret political contributions from the 1 percent of the 1 percent of the 1 percent are doing as much damage to our environment as anything else.
The reason is quite simple: Those workers are also consumers. When the 99 percent earn more, they spend more, and the one percent can produce more and earn more themselves.
It's now my one-year anniversary of my marriage to my husband and of marriage winning at the ballot box for the first time. In the time that's passed, I've seen how much difference marriage makes -- and how much more work needs to be done, especially in Oregon, the state right next door to mine.
