What the Politics of Fear Cost Us

There are heated opinions on whether America should be welcoming Syrian refugees to our shores after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut last week. Yet, much as we might dread the unknown, part of what it means to be an American is that we rise above the fearful rhetoric and xenophobia now taking hold with a vast number of Republican presidential candidates, and in

Missouri Students Are Just Getting Started in Their Fight

If You Want to Call the Election, Trust Vegas

“While there is no shortage of people making predictions about who will become the next Commander in Chief, almost every source of information has its own reason for bias. The media tends to report on the more outrageous candidates even when they’re not performing well in the polls. Pundits focus on their favorites or those that they have ready access to.  Many polls have no

For the Love of Pets

Recently, the Examiner reported the heartbreaking story that a family surrendered a ten year old pet lab to a shelter. Thankfully, the press he got meant that a rescue organization took him for placement in a forever home. Many dogs will have anywhere from three to five owners in their lifetimes.

No, We Are Not Done With Sexism

The tropes used to advanced sexist stereotypes may be more subtle now than they were the last time Hillary Clinton ran for President, but there is still a double standard when measuring a woman’s appearance, likability, authenticity and credibility.  And yes, it might be sexist when Senator Sander’s presidential campaign operative says he would consent to “interview” Hillary Clinton for a subservient position — especially

Why Do “Brogressives” Fight Female Leadership?

Why do we still demand impossible metrics for women on likeability, “authenticity” and credibility while automatically conferring those qualities upon men? Senator Bernie Sanders got in some hot water last week owing to senior campaign operatives’ remarks about being “willing to consider” Hillary Clinton for Vice President and “consenting to interview her.” His adviser’s statements were as insecure as they were condescending, considering Clinton is

Hillary’s Grit Under Pressure Wins New Supporters [Updated]

Hillary Clinton’s patience, fortitude and grace under the 11-hour gang grilling she received at the hands of Chief Investigator Trey Gowdy and his questionable Benghazi committee was nothing short of astonishing. Gowdy and his Republican brethren were as disrespectful to Clinton as they were clueless of statecraft. Considering they were rabid to once again have Secretary Clinton under the hot lights, they seemed ill prepared

Will Gowdy Tiptoe Around Hillary Now That Benghazi Committee Revealed as Farce?

When Hillary once again testifies before the “Special” Benghazi Committee on October 22nd, she will have the wind at her back. Chief investigator Rep. Trey Gowdy is now running scared. He has just given back donations he received from Stop Hillary PAC (the group that aired an anti-Hillary ad so grotesque, even two moms of Benghazi victims were appalled). Gowdy was forced to admit he
