Bridging The Gap
DACA: I'm undocumented and I am part of what makes America great. DACA: I'm undocumented and I am part of what makes America great.
Dear President Trump: My name is Karlita and I'm an undocumented immigrant, or so people say. Because of this, it might surprise you to hear that youíve actually inspired me. Before your campaign, I tried to ignore my status, or lack thereof. "Blend in, pretend it doesn't exist," I would tell myself. I know itís shocking for some to realize, but being undocumented has its downsides, inclu...

Trump Isnít a Threat to Our Democracy. Hysteria Is. Trump Isnít a Threat to Our Democracy. Hysteria Is.
Since Donald Trumpís election, the United States has been gripped by tyrannophobia. Conspiracies against democracy are everywhere; truth is under siege; totalitarianism is making a comeback; ďresistanceĒ is the last refuge of citizens. Tyrannophobia, the belief that the overwhelmingly important political issue is the threat to our liberal freedoms and institutions, has always been a powerful fo...

What should GOP do next on health care? How about getting advice from Hillary Clinton What should GOP do next on health care? How about getting advice from Hillary Clinton
Once the GOP gets tired of the circular firing squad over its failure to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, it might want to take a look at how Hillary Clinton handled a similarly embarrassing health care disaster during her husband's presidency. Despite the fact that Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House in 1993, Clinton couldn't even get her Health Security ...

States keep our elections secure States keep our elections secure
As Georgiaís secretary of state, I have worked tirelessly to ensure our stateís elections are secure, accessible and fair. For years, we have run our elections with little interest from the press. But during last yearís presidential election, everything changed with the news mediaís obsession with Russian meddling. Now, we are bombarded with questions about election security from reporters o...

Speed Safety Cameras Near Schools Make Sense Speed Safety Cameras Near Schools Make Sense
There is a bill before the New York State Legislature to expand the number and scope of speed safety cameras in New York City school zones and, amazingly, it faces considerable opposition. How could an initiative that would protect more than a million New York City students fail to be a slam dunk? According to Albany politicians, constituents complain that speed safety cameras just arenít fair....

Trump thinks heís under attack. Thatís very dangerous. Trump thinks heís under attack. Thatís very dangerous.
President Trump believes he is being persecuted, and that is a frighteningly dangerous mind-set for a man with such vast power. Amid a week of dizzying developments on multiple fronts, Trump gave a graduation speech Wednesday at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy portraying himself as a victim, unfairly besieged by those who would destroy him. ďNo politician in history, and I say this with great s...

Trump's 'help wanted' sign Trump's 'help wanted' sign
Hundreds of vacancies in the federal government affect average Americans: Our view. Beyond the marquee difficulties of President Trump's early months in office ó the bollixed-up travel ban, the Michael Flynn debacle and so on ó is an unsexy but important example in the fundamental realm of governance. By that we mean staffing the administration. Trump has filled fewer than 5% of 556 key exec...

Only Congress Can Solve the North Korea Problem Only Congress Can Solve the North Korea Problem
While there is no love lost between Democrats and Republicans these days, they do seem to agree on one thing: North Koreaís rapidly accelerating nuclear program poses a grave threat to the United States. And yet, despite bipartisan unity and President Trumpís frequent saber-rattling, one element of our North Korea policy remains puzzling: Why arenít our sanctions against the country stronger? N...

Tax Day isn't likely to be easier next year: Bill Sternberg Tax Day isn't likely to be easier next year: Bill Sternberg
Republicans don't agree on changes to the tax code any more than they do changes to Obamacare. We got our tax returns back from the accountant the other day. Although our family finances arenít unusually complicated, our federal and state returns for 2016 were 50 pages long. The printouts featured entries about ďline 18 of the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet,Ē ďtransactions reported on...

United's unfriendly approach: Our view United's unfriendly approach: Our view
The skies might be friendly for United, but not so much on the ground, where some of the airline's employees seem to be suffering from a dearth of common sense. Last month, United provoked widespread ridicule when personnel barred two teenage girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings, which the airline said violated a dress code policy for those traveling on employee passe...
