Breaking the Taboo: Hillary Clinton for President

Hillary vs. Bernie. Establishment vs...well, a multi-term Senator.   This new dichotomy is, of course, part of the democratic process, and I have survived enough presidential elections to know that such divisions usually fade away once the general election has begun in earnest. At least, that is what happened in the past. But if we take many Bernie supporters at face value, that tradition may be headed for the dust heap. And that is what I resent the most.   And there are other things that rub me the wrong way.   None of his plans will work if Democrats do not create a majority in the House and the Senate. Asserting that a “political revolution” will propel a majority in Congress is optimistic at best, but more likely just a case of garden variety narcissism. His simplistic accounting.

Measuring ISIS' appeal

Bottom line upfront: the vast majority of the Arab world does not support ISIS. That's good news. But it's not enough if we really want to solve the problem.    Two polls conducted right after the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) onslaught in Paris show widespread disdain…

Why Should Black History Be More Integrated?

The Backbone of America?

The Bernie Plant at Trump's rally hollered that, 'Illegals are the backbone of America.'
