On Donald Trump

On Donald Trump

To the Editor, Donald Trump loves everybody.….until someone criticizes or disagrees with him. Then he is not one to reflect on criticism. Instead, as we have seen, he becomes extremely vindictive and, with great relish, sets out to destroy that person. This would be a frightening tendency if possessed by a person able to exercise the powers of the U.S. presidency. I believe it would be irresponsible to give Donald Trump those powers.

Presidential Politics and the American Soul

Presidential Politics and the American Soul

By Robert C Koehler When I want to believe that America is a democracy — indeed, to feel so deeply this is so that my soul trembles — I turn to Martin Luther King, who gave his life for it. He cried out for something so much more than a process: a game of winners and losers. He reached for humanity’s deepest yearning, for the connectedness of all people, for transcendence past hatred and the demonization of “the other.” He spoke — half a century ago — the words that ...

WAAAHHHH…but we don’t wanna get arrested!!

WAAAHHHH…but we don’t wanna get arrested!!

By Mike Ferner As the macho, gun-toting, testosterone-addled cowboys who took over the wildlife refuge in Oregon call it quits, their pitiful whine can be heard all the way to Florida: “Waaahhh…but we don’t wanna get arrested…” So much for the rugged-individualists and badass proponents of personal responsibility. Let’s see what happens as their armed insurrection winds down.  How will the system treat the militant bullyboys? Will they get pepper-sprayed in the face as ... Full Story
