According to NBC News, the majority of the Washington, D.C. council as well as the mayor and the "Washington Post" are pushing a bill that would make the District of Columbia the first place in the nation to allow people as young as 16 to vote in federal elections (including presidential races).

On Earth Day, Congress whistling past the graveyard

Last month, the United Nations hosted a Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) conference in Bonn, Germany. Despite hopes that limiting population growth would be the UN's centerpiece topic, concerned attendees came away disappointed, with the impression that political correctness ruled the day, and that feel-gooders rather than do-gooders dominated the agenda.

Storm warning

You don't need a weatherman to see that the storm clouds gathering around Team Trump are serious. And since the only permanent member of Team Trump is The Donald himself, this squall is shooting straight down Pennsylvania Avenue, with that hard-candy shell of a hair-helmet above the chair behind the desk in the Oval Office square in its crosshairs.

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.

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.
