Outraged Citizens at Town Halls Have Republicans Ducking for Cover

Tom Cotton is just one of a list Republican Senators who for years have thrown red meat to the base by touting the repeal of “Obamacare.” It has been reported some constituents – who agreed with the hype of “repeal” – didn’t realize that “Obamacare” is actually the same policy as the Affordable Care Act upon which millions have come to depend. Now many of...

Does Flynn’s Resignation Herald More Danger or the Rescue of Our Republic?

Despite GOP leadership’s refusal to investigate Michael Flynn’s discussion of US sanctions with Russia before Trump took office, his resignation after only 23 days as National Security Advisor tells us that despite GOP denials, intelligence professionals take this threat seriously enough to leak it to us like a sieve, even as they are allegedly withholding intelligence from Trump for fear of “Russian ears” in the...

Yet, She Persisted. And So Must We All.

Today, when Senator Elizabeth Warren stood on the Senate floor to quote civil rights activist Coretta Scott King’s 1986 letter exposing Senator Jeff Sessions’ racist past and unfitness for a Federal Judgeship, Warren was gaveled to silence by #SpecialSnowflake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

What America Means

My Dad was a holocaust survivor who lost his entire family in World War II. My mom, though a Catholic and not imprisoned in concentration camps, was almost killed twice herself during the war. When my parents met and married years after the liberation and came to America by ship, it was not with the promise of gold-paved streets, because indeed they never became wealthy...

What Did the #WomensMarch Accomplish For You?

The latest count of protesters who joined the #WomensMarch yesterday stands at 4.5 million. Per Think Progress, far from this being a bunch of “coastal elites” protesting the Trump inauguration, there were “more than 500 protests in the U.S. and dozens more around the world,” and staggering numbers from “Real America”, that includes “crowds of 100,000 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, 12,000 in Omaha, Nebraska, 12,000 in...

The Women’s March Ought to Recognize Hillary, Too

This Saturday, in protest of a controversial, possibly compromised election and the inauguration of a man who made his way to the podium via demagoguery, thousands, perhaps millions, of women and supportive men will march on Washington, D.C., in cities around the country and even the world. They will march to peacefully remind of our values, diversity, equality, our civil rights and the rule of...

Run, Don’t Walk, to See Hidden Figures

I will do my best not to foolishly inquire why it took so long to bring the achievements of these three amazing women of color to the screen, but you owe yourself a treat by seeing Hidden Figures. Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, Hidden Figures shocks as it uplifts, placing you squarely in an America of the early sixties and letting...

Trump Kompromat Gets Benefit of the Doubt? Hillary Wouldn’t

Just when you thought the cesspool likely planting itself at the White House couldn’t get more unseemly or terrifying, Vox shared “CNN’s …bombshell of a story —  the heads of America’s top intelligence agencies showed President-elect Donald Trump evidence that the Russian government may have “compromising personal and financial” information on him and that his campaign spoke directly with Kremlin intermediaries.” Further: “The allegations came,...

Maybe I Should Just Share Pictures of My Cats

Hard to know what some people wouldn’t find threatening. Write positively about the most qualified, accomplished woman in a generation – some people don’t like that. Write about why she lost an election that everyone thought she was going to win – some don’t like that either, even though, for all intents and purposes, Hillary’s political career is over. You’d think they’d be happy. Not...
