Obama Policy Keeping Homeless People on the Street

No one should be surprised that President Obama signed a Democratic Party bill that puts more homeless people in the streets. It just needs to be repealed.

Swallowed by the Streets: A Child’s Innocence in Danger

On city streets throughout America a battle is being waged for the soul of humanity, and it is taking place right in front of our eyes. As darkness descends, the fading light lays bare an open wound in the fabric of society. The most vulnerable among us are being offered up as prey for those with unspeakable appetites. Children are being trafficked sexually in this country at an alarming rate and right now 300,000 are at risk of being prostituted.

The Frigid Fracas

After an absence of 25 years, it's downright ducky to be able to welcome back one of the great socio- politico conflicts in the history of the planet. How about a round of applause folks, because the Cold War is back and it's colder and warrier than ever.

The Attempted Typecasting of Ronan Farrow

It's always fascinating to follow typecasting. An actor gets a role and makes such a big splash that he becomes a "type," so casting directors look for others with a similar "look" or style to fill future roles. Or an actor becomes so famous in a role that he can never get any other parts, and the role of a lifetime becomes the curse of a career.

Equal Pay and Awkward Pauses

The best thing Texas Republicans can say about this week is that no one has told a rape joke yet. More than a week has passed since Attorney General Greg Abbott refused to say whether he would sign an equal pay law as governor, and the issue won't die no matter how many female apologists he trots in front of cameras. Can you believe it? Texas women apparently want to be paid the same as men for the same work. There's just no making some women happy.

A Warning to Conservatives

Recent findings from a Pew Research poll titled "Millennials in Adulthood" should leave conservatives, capitalists and generally anyone embracing smaller government, deeply concerned -- because the America they know today will be much different in the near future. And here's why.

Government Advice on Affording ObamaCare

"Look, if you want ObamaCare, you are just going to have to make some better budgeting decisions."

Transparency: Not Republican, Not Democrat

Openness in government is not a liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat, Independent, TEA party or Libertarian issue. The importance of transparency in local, state and federal government should transcend parties and political ideologies.

Put the Public Back in Public Information

This week is Sunshine Week, a nationwide discussion about the importance of access to public information and what it means for you and your community. During this week we pay special attention to our collective obligation to bring some "sunshine" to the often shadowy processes of government decision-making.

50 Shades of Cool

It was more amusing than piano- playing kittens to see Barack Obama plug the Affordable Care Act on Zach Galifianakis' internet comedy show. Not late night. Not basic cable. An internet show: "Between 2 Ferns." Even funnier was the President trotting out the same expression he normally reserves for Bill O'Reilly interviews.

Rand Paul Gets It

I disagree with some of Rand Paul's more libertarian positions, especially on social issues. And I'm certainly not endorsing him or anyone else to be the Republican nominee for president at this time. But Sen. Paul of Kentucky did two things recently that won my favor. He showed the 2,500 conservative activists at the CPAC conference last weekend that he understands what the GOP must do if it wants to take the Senate this fall and win back the White House.

“Ban Bossy”: Unintended Consequences

If you keep up with social justice issues, you've no doubt heard of the "Ban Bossy" campaign (banbossy.com) spearheaded by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and other prominent females.

Conservatives Target Free School Lunches

Did you ever think you'd see the day when decrying low-income kids who get free school lunches would become a political battle cry, coupled with the suggestion that parents who sign up their kids for free lunches love them less than parents who send their children to school with brown bagged baloney sandwiches?

Ten Billion Bucks for a Presidential Race?

We all know that the 2016 campaign will cost way more money than ever before - $10 billion is the latest head-spinning estimate - and that the reform laws aimed at curbing fat-cat clout have virtually collapsed. But still, it was shocking last week when the nation's top watchdog said that she's powerless to police the new Wild West.

Amish Romance Novels: Is That Even A Thing?

I had never really thought about such books existing, but the May 8 "Newsweek" reports that Amish romance novels are big business, accounting for as much as half of the inspirational fiction market and involving dozens of new titles each month.
