Tweeting against terrorism
Monday, March 2, 2015
other voices:
The Obama administration’s semantic somersaults to avoid attaching the adjective “Islamic” to the noun “extremism” are as indicative as they are entertaining. Progressives who believe that dialogues, conversations, engagements, conferences and summits are keys to pacifying the world have a peculiar solemnity about using certain words that are potentially insensitive. This mentality is perhaps especially acute in digitally drenched people who believe that Twitter and other social media have the power to tame turbulent reality.
Republicans discover income inequality, just in time for campaign season

Politics sometimes leads to poetic justice. Sarah Palin can no longer mock President Barack Obama’s use of a teleprompter after her own teleprompter froze mid-speech.
Change the trajectory of Alzheimer’s or bankrupt Medicare
Monday, March 2, 2015
other voices:
This is the price tag: $20.8 trillion. Because there is currently no way to stop or slow Alzheimer’s, that’s what we will all pay over the next generation to care for people with Alzheimer’s unless policymakers change the disease’s trajectory by adequately funding research for treatment.
Jeb Bush’s brainless trust looks familiar
Sunday, March 1, 2015
other voices:
I had been keeping an open mind about Jeb Bush. I mean, sure, as Florida governor, he helped his brother snatch the 2000 election. And that led to two decade-long botched wars that cost tens of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. The nation will be dealing for a long time with struggling veterans and the loss of American prestige. Not to mention that W. let Wall Street gamble away the economy, which is only now finally creeping back.
Hillary, Jeb and fundraising for 2016

other voices:
A few weeks ago brought the comedy extravaganza of the “Saturday Night Live” reunion, but not one of its sketches or jokes was half as funny as four words three days later by Jeb Bush.
Relationship between U.S., Israel is what matters
Sunday, March 1, 2015
Where I Stand:
When it comes to Israel, I have to admit, I am biased. Call me sentimental, but I believe that the State of Israel, which was created by the United Nations in 1948 with the blessing of the United States and practically every other nation on Earth following the Holocaust, has …

The GOP’s self-deception
Friday, February 27, 2015
OTHER VOICES:
Republicans had better divert some of their campaign cash toward finding a cure for Obama Derangement Syndrome. If they don’t, their nemesis will beat them in a third consecutive presidential contest — without, of course, actually being on the ballot.
The quest for a gun on every corner
Friday, February 27, 2015
OTHER VOICES:
Earlier this month — right between Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day — Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, introduced a bill that would allow people from states with lax gun laws to carry their concealed weapons all around the country. The goal, Cornyn said in a news release, is to treat local gun permits “like driver’s licenses.”
