Now, the Voters can decide 0

Everywhere I go, people want to know who will win the nomination. And I tell them, wait until the voters caucus in Iowa and start voting in New Hampshire. Though we have seen the polls fluctuate back and forth between the so called outsiders represented by businessman Donald Trump, former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and […]

This Monday, we commemorate the 30th anniversary of the federal holiday in honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a holiday that thankfully has been gaining in recognition since Congress passed a bill and President Ronald Reagan signed it in 1983, designating the third Monday in January, starting in 1986, to honor the […]

Looking to the Future with Hope 0

There are historical moments that often slip by both pundits and partisans. President Obama’s final State of the Union address is one of them.   Blake Hounshell is Politico’s Digital Editorial Director, a veteran journalist who is given to wry tweets and light mocking of politicians.  But, humorous, or serious,  I quote his tweet because […]

Obama’s Final Stretch: Advancing Our Dreams 0

President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union Address isn’t an ending, but a beginning. Instead of the usual end-of-second term victory lap, Obama is, as it were, competing in another Olympic gold-winning event. With seven long, challenging and difficult years behind him, President Obama does not consider himself a lame duck. And he isn’t […]

Attacking Bill Clinton won’t help GOP 0

There’s a reason former President Bill Clinton remains one of the most popular and sought-after figures in the Democratic Party. If anyone wants to question how much of an asset he is, look no further than 2012, when he stumped for President Barack Obama and Democratic candidates across the country, and delivered one of the […]

A Look Back on 2015 0

2015 was a year of struggle and hope—and a poignant reminder of just how interlinked those two things are. We met with tragedy, heartache, and fear, yet emerged with resolve to rise above our adversaries, above difficult circumstances, and above our own less noble impulses and to move forward.

Trump: More harmful to AmericanSecurity 0

GOP frontrunner Donald Trump reminds me of Lucy, the character in Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip “Peanuts.” In one strip, Lucy is trying to alarm a happy Snoopy, loudly yelling “Floods, fires and famine! Death, doom and destruction!” Despite rumors of wars and earthquakes and floods, it’s not all doom and gloom. Love still exists […]

Our Task: Fighting Hunger 0

It’s Thanksgiving—a time to rejoice and be grateful. And we have much to be thankful for, despite some of the the unfortunate beliefs of the misinformed. The United States unemployment rate has declined for the sixty-eighth consecutive month. In truth, the current jobless rate of 5.0% is today’s U.S. standard for full employment.

$15 minimum voting bloc takes shape 0

Shawanda Wilson, who works at Taco Bell in Tampa, Fla. and makes $8.25 an hour, has never voted before. Neither has Tonya Harrington, a 42-year-old home care worker from Durham, NC, who makes $7.25 an hour.

We Need Courage, Not Fear 0

So far, following the savage attack in Paris, the only people doing better than ISIS terrorists at manipulating Americans into acting against their security interests are U.S. politicians. The scramble to duck and cover from Syrian war refugees that we are witnessing recalls the famous line from the comic strip Pogo:”We have met the enemy, […]
