Take a Wild Guess Which Political Party is Imperiling Babies

We all know by now that Republicans are well practiced at the art of magical thinking - massive tax cuts balance the budget, human-induced climate change isn't real, Donald Trump is a normal candidate - but the delusion that tops them all is their apparent belief that the Zika virus will slow its pace and take its cues from the ideological cheapskates on Capitol Hill.

Going Back to Move Forward

Ah, the "good old days," the ones that President Obama took a sarcastic swipe at during his recent commencement speech at Rutgers University when he said that America's "good old days weren't that great."

Facebook Scandal a Warning for the Future of the Internet

Many conservatives are waving off concerns about Facebook manipulating its Trending News feature because it's a private company. In addition to legal concerns related to the fact the feature was deceptively misrepresented, there is a bigger reason Facebook's conduct should set off alarm bells: the company has long advocated regulatory changes that could eventually make mandatory for the whole Internet the type of content manipulation that Facebook has been imposing on its own site.

Show Police the Respect They Deserve

Twenty-nine years ago this week, I graduated from law school. It's been almost three decades since I've been able to officially call myself an "officer of the court," a title I wear with a great deal of pride. But while I will always be extremely proud of my pedigree and of the work it involves, I do not equate it with the profound physical courage demanded of other "officers."

New Defense Bill Will Boost War and Tyranny

For many of us concerned with liberty, the letters "NDAA" have come to symbolize Washington's ongoing effort to undermine the U.S. Constitution in the pursuit of constant war overseas. It was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2012 that introduced into law the idea that American citizens could be indefinitely detained without warrant or charge if a government bureaucrat decides they had assisted al-Qaeda or "associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States." No charges, no trial, just disappeared Americans.

'Party of Science' Flouts Biology on Gender Identity

Let me surprise you with the following statement: I sympathize with transgender individuals that they would prefer to use the bathroom of the gender they have selected. If you've gone through that kind of transformation, I suspect that it is generally a one-way street and you never want to go back.
