We Need an Exchange Program for Racial Integration

The best response to the Black Lives Matter movement is the one solution we're not considering: integration. Black and white Americans live largely separate but unequal lives, living in segregated neighborhoods and attending segregated schools that seem foreign to each other. We lack the political will for forced integration-even though it worked-but we should consider a student exchange program to build bridges between our communities.

EPA Discovers Water Flows Downhill

Only the Obama administration, with it's special kind of incompetence, could turn a mine that's been closed for 92 years into an environmental disaster. That's exactly what happened when the Keystone regulators at the Environmental "Protection" Agency decided to dig into a dam holding back dangerously polluted water at the Gold King mine.

GOP Candidates: From Bad to Very Bad

I plead with all the writers, journalists, pundits, posters, commenters and tweeters of the nation: Please stop calling the Republican field a clown car. It was funny and image-provoking the first hundred times I read it. Now it's the quip that won't die.

Sorry Donald, Substance Trumps Style

Donald Trump's commanding lead in the polls is a solemn reminder that if we're not careful, another narcissistic good talker will be elected to complete the fundamental transformation President Obama began. Choosing style and good sound bites over substance got us in the mess we're in with a president who highlights his intellectual shortcomings when he comes up with some real off-teleprompter doozies, claiming our country has 57 states, America is 20 centuries-old, "Austrian" is a language, Canada has a president, and dead heroes are listening in his audience, to name a few.

Trump Pulls No Tweets

Much as we would like to, many of us find Donald Trump difficult to ignore, as he dominates debates, news coverage and early polls. Easily overlooked, however, is what he has managed to do with social media - most jarringly, Twitter.
