On the whole, is American exceptionalism a force for good? The question shouldn't be hard to answer. To make an exception of yourself is as immoral a proceeding for a nation as it is for an individual.
Back in 1996, my mother was interviewed on Good Morning America. They were doing a story on the November election and wanted to know why she, an 89-year-old Catholic woman, was voting for Democrats. Her words are as relevant today, as they were 18 years ago.
No doubt the Obama administration feels overwhelmed. Who has time for India? But make time President Obama must. India matters today. It will matter much more tomorrow, especially if Prime Minister Modi commits his political capital to eliminate barriers to entrepreneurship, investment and growth.
School officials defend their quick resort to call in the school or city police with the claim that black students do commit more serious offenses than other students. There's nothing to support this.
Attempting to predict the outcome of the November 4th midterm elections, political observers have scratched their heads at the behavior of the youngest U.S. demographic segment, the Millennials.
I'm no Doogie Howser, but isn't this medically certifiable in the real world? If the guy at the corner bar, or at the table next to you, says such nuttiness, don't you move away? I know I do. Weirdo's bother me. Call me old-fashioned. This is Fox News, 2014, stirring the pot. It's what they do.
Pennsylvania's pornography scandal just keeps getting worse. So far, four people employed by prosecutors' offices have been forced out. Next in line is a member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Justice Seamus McCaffery.
I've got my fingers crossed for our neighbors to the south to join us in a legal weed wonderland, and it's not for the reasons you might think.
Gary was aiming at the government's deceptions and lies. While the Reagan administration was telling youth "Just Say No" to drugs, they were also saying "Just don't know" about their anti-communist allies involved in drug trafficking.
Jumping to a fake mental disorder diagnosis in everyone who is violent has another serious downside. It unfairly stigmatizes the mentally ill, most of whom are not violent.
Do you want to support the troops? I mean truly support the troops; the yellow-ribbon magnet on your car doesn't count. If you do, ask yourself a question when you go to the polls: Which candidate takes war seriously enough to take a stand?
We hear political pundits saying it is a mistake to compromise. It takes "give" and "take" -- and that takes work -- it doesn't just happen. There are multiple examples, starting with our founding fathers, of people in government that held very firm views on various issues, but made compromises to reach consensus.
From Van Jones, Ralph Nader, and Joan Blades on the left, to Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist, and George Shultz on the right, advocates from both sides of the political divide are gathering in the Bay Area, exploring ways to combine forces.
If Republicans take the Senate next month (and if he wins his own reelection race), Mitch McConnell will be that body's next Majority Leader. Then what happens? McConnell's been frank about what the GOP would do with the Senate -- at least when he thinks nobody's listening.
When describing the Ukrainian Parliamentary elections of 2012, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the 'Ukrainian people deserve so much better.' Hopefully the new Parliament will prove worthy of Ukrainian people.
Did you hear the one about the Kentucky GOP candidate who asked his attorney general to investigate the state Democratic Party for allegedly sending out his Social Security number to thousands of constituents? Sorry to say, there's no punch line here, because according to recent reports, it actually happened.
It should be standard procedure for the federal government to disclose and pay real attention to the costs of carbon pollution of all of their actions -- before the costs to everyone on Earth become unbearably high.
At a campaign event for Senate hopeful Joni Ernst in Des Moines on Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told me that he is unhappy with Citizens United and would revisit the landmark Supreme Court decision to make it more balanced. However, Graham does not think any action will happen without a movement.
I view Ebola as an enemy. This is war. Now is not the time to politicize Ebola and attack our leadership. We can discuss how this health crisis could have been better managed after we win the war, but until then, it is essential that we stay focused on the enemy.
