There are not enough people willing to be a voice for the voiceless. Hate has been simmering just beneath the surface, lurking in the shadows, and we have been content to sit on the sidelines, hoping others will fix it for us.... We've blessed bigots with our patience. Hate is learned and fear is contagious. We teach each other to be afraid of anything different from ourselves.

We don't even get a minute to catch our breath. We weren't yet fully recovered from hearing about James Comey's inappropriate letter to Congress, and BOOM! Monday night I read, on Facebook, that Don...

It has nothing to do with whether you're a Republican or a Democrat. It has nothing to do with whether you want Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump to become president. It appears that James Comey has violated Justice Department rules and that should be deeply troubling to everyone.
The down-ballot race going on right now isn't getting the attention it deserves. Not good, because the stakes are very, very high.

Donald Trump may get to be president of the United States, and if he does, it will in large part be because the U.S. populace is more interested in re-tweeting pictures of Orlando Bloom's genitalia than in finding out who the Republican candidate really is and what his intentions are for the great United States of America.

I am almost sure that Mrs. Trump is not a robot, unlike the women in the famous novel. I say this despite her sculpted face and the generally 1950s Playboy Bunny appearance that seems to defy human aging. I am still sure that beneath the coaching and stilted speeches, she is a human being.
Many Americans likely realize that actually putting this thing into effect risks compromising a Constitution that Americans greatly value. The idea of building a wall between Mexico and the United States, while attractive to many Republicans, is surely seen as unrealistic by members of the GOP.

Democrats, some draped in blankets and toting pillows, carried their remarkable House floor sit-in past daybreak Thursday.
