Republican Lies About the Culture Wars

Republican Lies About the Culture Wars

  From the Boston Globe by Teresa Hanafin I know you are but what am I: It can be head-spinning to try to keep up with which silly culture war Republicans are going to launch next to distract voters away from the fact that they have no policy ideas. So they gnash their teeth when M&M candy characters switch from high heels to sneakers and rend their garments when companies publicly oppose hateful laws aimed at LGBTQ people. But their favorite tactic, honed to perfection by their cult ... Full Story

How bad would it have to get in Ukraine for Trump to

How bad would it have to get in Ukraine for Trump to abandon Putin?

By Mike Littwin   Once again, democracy is under attack.

At Risk—the Idea of America

At Risk—the Idea of America

by Mel Gurtov Perhaps the most damaging legacy of the Trump years is the disservice he and his associates are doing to Americans’ sense of self and nation. In ordinary times there would not be much debate about what it means to be an American or what are American values. Every school child learns these things: It’s Civics 1. Race, class, and gender identity have always been important, but generally they have been subsumed under a larger identification with the nation. “We’re ... Full Story

The 72nd Session of the Colorado State Legislature has been underway since January 3. As anewly-elected Senator representing all of Larimer County (except Fort Collins), I’m doing my best to learn the ropes at the Capitol and stay to connected to folks back home.

Cancer with political clout

Cancer with political clout

By Robert C. Koehler A suicide bomber inflicts hell at a concert hall in Manchester, England that’s full of children, as though that was the point — to murder children. The horror of war . . . well, terrorism . . . doesn’t get any worse. And the media, as they focus on the spectacle of what happened, as they cover the particulars of the tragedy — the suspect’s name and ethnicity and apparent grievances, the anguish of the survivors, the names and ages of the victims — ...
