What’s next for Paul Ryan?

House Speaker Paul Ryan didn't quite yell" abandon ship" Wednesday when he announced he would not be seeking re-election, but he came close. His departure, which won't come until January of next year, is too little, too late to save the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Crackdown on Facebook would be good...for Facebook

From the moment Mark Zuckerberg began to read his opening statement, you knew he wasn't going to change Facebook.

Circus Trump

Like Cirque de Soleil, the Donald Trump Circus has many touring productions. The Oval Office. The White House. The Cabinet. Both Republican held Houses of Congress. It's a wacky zany five-ring spectacle chock-full of tightrope walkers, ethical contortionists, trained animals, morally challenged acrobats and logic jugglers. And don't forget the clowns. Lots and lots of clowns. The U.S. Marine Band is playing "Hail to the Chief" on a calliope.

Congress not up to the task of taking on Facebook

As I watched Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg go head-to-head with members of Congress, I couldn't help but have the same reaction I have when I get a pointless chain email from an elderly relative.

Time to reconsider regime change in Syria?

American response to the catastrophic humanitarian crisis Syria has been experiencing for the last seven years has been tepid at best. With Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most recent chemical attack on the Syrian people, inaction is no longer an option.

New strategy offers Trump a much bigger NAFTA win

In politics and public policy, sometimes a modest victory is actually a massive missed opportunity. President Trump is at risk of suffering just that kind of setback with the impending completion of negotiations on the new NAFTA - if he fails to heed the brilliant strategic advice of Senators Ted Cruz, Cory Gardner, and Steve Daines.

Spring break, or bust

As an educator, I feel blessed that I usually have the same spring break as my three daughters, which means we get to spend a week of quality time off together while my wife continues to go to work to support our leisure activities.

Trump’s latest headache is in Wisconsin

Earlier this week in Wisconsin, a state governed by Koch Brothers subsidiary Scott Walker, one million voters cast ballots to fill a seat on the state Supreme Court. I've long argued that judicial elections are idiotic - judges should be immune to partisan politics; they shouldn't make campaign promises - but such are the rules in states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. And sure enough, the Wisconsin race featured two lower-court judges with overtly partisan brands: Right-wing Walker clone and NRA fave Michael Screnock, and anti-Trump progressive Rebecca Dallet.

Democrat’s latest: Jim Crow meet Juan Canto

It's been a decade since I agreed with the Democrat platform, but I must give the party a great deal of credit for its consistency. There is a direct correlation between Democrats in 2018 fighting to increase their political power by demanding vote-less illegal aliens be counted in the census to Democrats in 1818, who demanded equally vote-less slaves continue to be counted in the census to increase their political power.

Environmental protection in the age of Trump

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) has been called the Magna Carta of our nation's environmental laws. Passed in 1969, Congress designed NEPA to provide for environmentally informed decision-making and public outreach on the part of federal agencies. NEPA requires that all the consequences and potential environmental problems of an agency's actions must be carefully considered before an agency acts.

‘Roseanne’ is a liberal trojan horse

Hey, "Roseanne" fans in Tulsa, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma City and Indianapolis: don't get too comfy with Roseanne-the-Trump-Voter... it looks like the writers are going to make her character into a new version of Archie Bunker, a likable character with horrible, hateful opinions designed to turn you against non-liberal political ideas.
