Time for Congress to catch up to reality
Last week we celebrated Veteran’s Day. So naturally there was a lot of talk about the military. But there was also a lot of talk about President Obama taking executive action on immigration and it got me thinking about Harry S. Truman.

Voters reject radical ‘Personhood’ measures
The radical “personhood” movement was dealt a significant blow on Tuesday night, when voters in North Dakota and Colorado resoundingly defeated two ballot initiatives that would have redefined life to extend legal protections to fertilized eggs. In Colorado, Amendment 67 — which sought to update ....

Election day loser: the 'American voters'
As Americans rushed to the polls on Tuesday, voting rights watchdogs reported that this year’s election day marked the most "unfair, confusing, and discriminatory election landscape" in fifty years. Voters nationwide reported a slew of problems, including: long lines; broken machines; voter intim....

Get ready for the real fight
Debacle. Bloodbath. Call it what you will. Democrats, as expected, fared poorly in red states in an off-year election. Worse, unpopular Republican governors survived. This was ugly. Yes, the electorate was as skewed as was the map. Many Republicans won office with the support of less than 20 perc....

Washington team must change offensive name
At our fall meeting this past weekend, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Board of Directors voted unanimously to urge owner Dan Snyder and the entire Washington NFL organization to drop the name and images offensive to millions of Native Americans.

Vote: Don’t let them silence you
Our country’s oldest and longest struggle has been to enlarge democracy by making it possible for more and more people to be treated equally at the polls.

All elections matter. This November, Americans will choose governors in 36 states, elect the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate, select a great majority of their state legislators, and decide who will represent them in hundreds of local elections. The decisions these offic....

Who stole television news?
They're selling us another war on television. As a Washington media strategist, people ask me, “Who's offering alternatives to war on the Sunday morning news shows?” As reported by the New York Times, military analysts dominating the Sunday airwaves, marshaling support for war in the Middle East, ....
