The Electoral College Must Go

While I’m far from deciding on a Democratic candidate, I agree with Senator Elizabeth Warren in her support for “getting rid of the electoral college,” and having the presidency decided by a national popular vote.  Per Matthew Dowd’s ABC NEWS article, Warren was “quickly attacked by many who think this is a “radical idea.” Yet that assessment is incorrect.  Per a new CBS News poll, about...

No, Judge Aquilina Wasn’t “Mean” Sentencing Larry Nassar

If you find it preposterous that a sitting female Judge is getting backlash for making a speech admonishing serial pedophile “Dr.” Larry Nassar while sentencing him, join the club. Have any of the guys on social media who called Judge Rosemarie Aquilina “mean” for telling Nassar off ever heard a male Judge speechify from the bench? Ever been in a courtroom?  It would be odd...

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...

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...

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...

Remembering Jerry Doyle, My Unlikely Pal

I’m sure Jerry Doyle, top syndicated radio host, Babylon 5 star, Conservative, EPIC TIMES founder, and all around big personality had no idea what to make of me the first time we spoke on his show. It took about thirty seconds for us to realize we were kindred spirits who could find common ground despite our differing politics. He labeled our first exchange “When Republicans...

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. Having a pet is a huge responsibility requiring long term commitment, but with that...
