Take a Wild Guess Which Political Party is Imperiling Babies

We all know by now that Republicans are well practiced at the art of magical thinking - massive tax cuts balance the budget, human-induced climate change isn't real, Donald Trump is a normal candidate - but the delusion that tops them all is their apparent belief that the Zika virus will slow its pace and take its cues from the ideological cheapskates on Capitol Hill.

Facebook Scandal a Warning for the Future of the Internet

Many conservatives are waving off concerns about Facebook manipulating its Trending News feature because it's a private company. In addition to legal concerns related to the fact the feature was deceptively misrepresented, there is a bigger reason Facebook's conduct should set off alarm bells: the company has long advocated regulatory changes that could eventually make mandatory for the whole Internet the type of content manipulation that Facebook has been imposing on its own site.

Show Police the Respect They Deserve

Twenty-nine years ago this week, I graduated from law school. It's been almost three decades since I've been able to officially call myself an "officer of the court," a title I wear with a great deal of pride.

New Defense Bill Will Boost War and Tyranny

For many of us concerned with liberty, the letters "NDAA" have come to symbolize Washington's ongoing effort to undermine the U.S. Constitution in the pursuit of constant war overseas. It was the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2012 that introduced into law the idea that American citizens could be indefinitely detained without warrant or charge if a government bureaucrat decides they had assisted al-Qaeda or "associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States." No charges, no trial, just disappeared Americans.
