Can You Hear Us Now?

Written by Thursday, October 05, 2017
The catastrophic chaos seen in Las Vegas Sunday night has taken violence in America to a new level. It is now the number 1 mass shooting in the country, due to the number of victims shot, killed and wounded. It’s a record we can do without. The timing could not have been more uncanny. It happened a week before the GOP was to vote on relaxing regulations on gun silencers. It caused the NRA to delay—not cancel—ad buys to get Republican lawmakers elected in Virginia. These are the good ol’ boys whose elections are being funded by gun money. So…

Written by Thursday, September 28, 2017
A year ago, Colin Kaepernick got down on one knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback wanted to draw attention to the proliferation of police shootings of black men. Now, kneeling has become an emblem of solidarity for athletes and non-athletes alike. It has reawakened the debate over free speech, who should be allowed to publicly engage in it, and where. Donald Trump has likened the act to flag burning, called players who don’t stand during the anthem unpatriotic. He even tweeted his criticism of the players—and Kaepernick in particular—over 2 dozen…

Repeal and Replace is Back…Please Die Already

Written by Thursday, September 21, 2017

It wasn't that long ago that we thought the effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act died once and for all in the Senate, but it’s not so. Like a bad penny, the fight to dismantle the legacy of former President Barack Obama just won’t go away. It continues to rise from the ashes with new names and subtle word changes, and hang around like a cold sore. We thought Republicans…
