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?

Climate Change Talkathon a Sign of Weakness

There's a reason why the U.S. Senate has long been nicknamed the Cave of Winds. Typically, its denizens are all talk, no action.

Don’t Wreck Medicare Part D

In 2003, I opposed the Medicare prescription drug bill, in large part because I expected that - like all other government entitlement programs - it would end up costing far more than initially projected. I was wrong.

Pay Attention to This

I happened to be doing a 20-hour road trip in a rented car when Apple announced CarPlay, a system that will soon allow motorists to text, check email and be entertained via their mobile devices, while roaring down the highway.

GOP Going Nuclear on ‘Battlefield of Ideas’

CPAC-the political convention that is to conservatives what ComicCon is to nerds-did not sort out the Republican field for 2016, but it did reveal something much scarier. Unlike most years when Republicans insist they should fight for ideals they never define, this time conservatives sketched out a frighteningly radical agenda. Taking CPAC speakers at their word, the next Republican generation will make us pine for the comparatively bi-partisan moderation and restraint that characterized the George W. Bush administration.

There are Better Ways to Cut Military Spending

Is it really a surprise that the governors of all 50 states are pushing back against President Obama's push to cut their National Guard troops?

Obama as Deporter-in-Chief? Not So Fast

Janet Murguia, the National Council of La Raza's Chief Executive Officer, recently made an explosive charge against President Barack Obama. Murguia called the president the "Deporter- in-Chief," a reference to what many Hispanic lobbying organizations allege is Obama's record number of deportations.
