The Country of California

In 2017, you should never be subjected to the use of the word, "gnarly," unless you're describing your latest faux Chippendale woodworking project.

On the Supreme Court, Democrats Simply Lost

When Senate Republicans decided last year to ditch their constitutional duty - by stiffing President Obama's eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee, denying him even the courtesy of a hearing - they took a big political risk. They gambled that the voters wouldn't punish them on election day.

Playing Tobacco Free

"A healthier nation in one generation" is more than a public health slogan; it is a goal that is achievable and vital to economic and physical health of all Americans. Every parent, grandparent and community resident wants a better world, and better health for our children. There are steps that we can take to ensure better health for the next generation, starting from the very beginning with playing tobacco free.

30 Valentine’s Days: Where Did The Time Go?

Ordering Dinner With a Side of Sanctimony

A nationwide group of restaurants is now offering diners a chance to stick it to the man while simultaneously putting the fork to their tofu. Those of you who've wanted to join a great moral crusade, but never got around to cleaning up the basement and inviting a Syrian "refugee" to move in, can now eat locally and be served globally.

Trump’s First 100 Days

As extraordinary as it sounds, Donald J. Trump is now the 45th President of the United States. It's mind-boggling. Like making John Goodman the cover model for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Kim Kardashian-appointed chief scientist at the Atomic Energy Lab. Colin Kaepernick in charge of WikiLeaks.

A Better Solution Than Trump’s Border Wall

Just one week in office, President Trump is already following through on his pledge to address illegal immigration. His January 25th executive order called for the construction of a wall along the entire length of the U.S.-Mexico border. While he is right to focus on the issue, there are several reasons why his proposed solution will unfortunately not lead us anywhere closer to solving the problem.

A Genuine Contempt for the Media

In his first White House press room briefing after two days in office, President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, laid out the Administration's approach to the media with all the subtlety of a Louisville slugger between the eyes: We don't like you, we don't want you, we don't need you, we intend to ignore you.

Mr. Trump, Don’t Build That Wall

President Trump's new get-tough attitude on immigration has already stopped one Mexican from coming to the United States.

Trump Reneging on Major Campaign Pledge

On the Monday of Donald Trump's first full week in office, the president immediately made good on several of his campaign promises. Among other actions, Trump withdrew the United States from the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership and instituted a federal hiring freeze except for military personnel. A day later, Trump met with chief executive officers from the Big Three auto companies - Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler - and, as he did with TPP, continued to focus on his signature issue, bringing jobs back to America.
