Republicans Say They Finally Have a Health Care Alternative — But Don’t Count On It Working for You

I was one of those living with a pre-existing condition and I can assure you that the day pre-existing conditions were deemed discriminatory and unlawful was the day I felt relieved. I remember being denied coverage for my pregnancy back in the 1990’s because it had been considered as a pre-existing condition, now thanks to […]

We’d Do Anything For Vets, Except Support Them In Politics

There quite a few Veterans organizations that not only help veterans on a daily basis but serve a strong role in activism on their behalf, personally I follow vote and I know that their organization is quite angry about the number of bills designed to help their fellow veterans ending up on the floor […]

Judge Criticized By Trump Unseals Documents In Trump University Case

This lawsuit was brought about by former students, who were cheated by Trump and his promises, they found validation from New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who presented it to court where a judge found merit to the case, a simple case of players following proper procedure. Trump is trying to garner sympathy, not […]

New Clinton Ad Is More Anti-Hillary Than Anti-Trump

This article, I think, highlights a central tenet to Hillary’s poor likeability numbers, she appears to be part of the Wall Street democrats, those who have turned a blind eye to the criminal behaviors of the big banks over the course of a decade or two and not caring as long as they receive the […]

Friday’s Morning Email: Obama’s Historic Hiroshima Visit

So Congress, led by the Republican Party, decided to take a two week break instead of knuckling down to the task of finding a compromise, in other words a workable solution, to prepare the United States for the upcoming mosquito season and the threat of the Zika virus. As we have seen with the insane […]

Sanders vs. Clinton: Electability and the Future of the Democratic Party

I wonder how much Sanders has suffered from the media blackout, if he had been treated equally by the news media since the beginning and not abruptly dismissed out of hand, could he have won the votes and the delegates that instead went to Clinton? Did voters vote for Clinton only because the chatter on […]

Texas, 10 Other States Sue Obama Administration Over Transgender Bathroom Access

It angers me to no end that with all of the serious economic, public policy and foreign policy issues we face at this time, certain politicians and states choose to focus on “bathroom security” based on prejudicial beliefs. I have been looking for articles dealing with important legislation being written, if only to get away […]

Domino’s Accused Of Fraud and ‘Systemic Wage Theft’ By New York State

Unfortunately we cannot look to Congress to protect worker’s economic interests no matter how those interests would make for a stronger economy. I don’t understand why the concept of putting more money earned from hard work into their wallets is anathema to the Republican Party. They have no problem using the same wording, though applying […]

John Oliver Shows Why U.S. Primaries And Caucuses Are ‘An Erratic Clusterf**k Every 4 Years’

How sad is it for the American people that we get our civic education from a comedy show instead of our journalistic outlets. If ever one was unsure that we needed to overhaul our restrictive two party political system, last night’s show should have made that abundantly clear. Basically both political parties have made elections […]

This State Says It Can Automatically Register Voters Without Legislative Approval

Considering that the Republican Party has been on a tear over voter fraud since it seems President Obama took office, it is a welcome sight when you see more states come on board through their own initiatives to register their residents to vote, more than just a right, but a civic duty if one thinks […]
