To Avoid Political Extinction, The GOP Must Stop Donald Trump

Donald Trump is still wildly popular with Republican primary voters, and although there are signs he will eventually implode, he’s doing irreparable harm to the GOP. Trump has been drawing large crowds of supporters, and some of his campaign rallies have turned violent – an issue he has refused to condemn. The Republican Party would […]

Republicans Are Really Going To Hate Pope Francis’ Climate Change Encyclical

The Catholic Church and I don’t see eye to eye on the majority of issues most of the time. Their stance on reproductive rights and their shameful legacy of protecting predatory priests were major contributors to the reason I walked away from them nearly 15 years ago. While the Vatican has denied science when it […]

Why It May Be Time To Cut Our Support For Israel

Before the crowds grab their torches and pitchforks, I should make the statement that I am a Jew (not practicing) and that I fully support the right of Israel to exist as a nation.

Meet The Republican Congressman Who Is Angering The Tea Party

Ok, I made that last part up, sort of. But as I was saying, a┬ápetition has […]

Speaker Boehner Mocks Free Community College Using Taylor Swift, And It’s Laughable

Speaker John Boehner doesn’t like President Obama’s idea to make community college free, which would help lessen the amount of debt students find themselves with after graduating college. Community colleges are actually a great way to get the first two years of college out of the way without going into crippling debt while trying to […]

Speaker John Boehner Confirms Republicans Will Target Obamacare Once Again

Welcome to the new Congress, same as the old Congress. Ok, everyone who didn’t see this one coming, please raise your hands. In the wake of the really bad election last November for Democrats, Republicans are particularly emboldened now that they have an even larger majority in the House, as well as control of the […]
