Bridging The Gap
Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column
President Trump won the election by appealing to blue collar, working-class voters desperate for a change from the norms of Washington. “I'm not going to let Wall Street get away with murder,” he said in January 2016. “Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us.” Wall Street and predatory lenders are assuming that rhetoric was all for show, and they were no doubt heartened by Trump’s ste...

Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column
Since Donald Trump upended everything we thought we knew about politics, hands have been wrung and ink has been spilled about the "post-factual age." How could the candidate with the worst Politifact rating in the 2016 campaign come out on top? How could fake news cause a man to shoot up a pizzeria in a quiet Washington neighborhood? How could the Trump administration claim its new press secretary...

Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view
President-elect Donald Trump, in his first news conference in six months, laid out plans Wednesday for how he'd avoid conflicts of interest while maintaining a far-flung business empire. He will place his company in a trust to be managed by two of his sons. Count us unimpressed. The word “trust” in this case is an artifice. Trump is not actually divesting himself of anything. He, and the rest o...

The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider
Shortly before his death in 1983, eccentric futurist Buckminster Fuller introduced what he called the "knowledge-doubling curve" to describe the rapid acceleration of human knowledge. Fuller estimated that before 1900, humanity's cognitive database doubled every century; after World War II, the doubling of knowledge occurred after every 25 years. But with technological advances, recent studies sug...

The Season to Be Stressful The Season to Be Stressful
MONTREAL — Red Bull? Check. Late-night delivery on speed dial? Check. Pringles? Check. You would think that after three semesters of college, I’d have learned my lesson. No more skipping classes to catch up on missed assignments before finals, pulling all-nighters before an exam, or relying on junk food for sustenance as I burn the midnight oil. “This won’t happen again,” I remember telling ...

Real people rely on Obamacare Real people rely on Obamacare
In policy and political debates, we often forget the human impact of weighty choices. Abstract numbers, ideological arguments, “he said, she said” talking points and outright falsehoods — these are the currency of our public discourse. But elections and policies have real consequences in the everyday lives of ordinary families. As Congress considers repeal of the Affordable Care Act, we at the ...

Keep the overtime rule: Our view Keep the overtime rule: Our view
Donald Trump won the presidency with a populist message and the support of working class voters. But, aside from Trump's staunch opposition to trade deals, little of his agenda is actually geared toward improving the lot of the people who embraced him. His cabinet selections so far have been heavy on billionaires and Wall Street financiers. His tax cuts would disproportionately help the wealthy...

Trump's female voters are people not props: Column Trump's female voters are people not props: Column
As America recovers from last week’s shock election results that ended with a President-elect Donald Trump, the finger pointing is in full swing. If there’s someone poised to pick up a large share of the blame, it’s the white women who voted 53% for Donald Trump. Donald Trump got a larger share of Latino and black voters than Mitt Romney or John McCain. Yet the story isn’t Hillary Clinton not b...

Trump's monumental challenge on race: Ellis Cose Trump's monumental challenge on race: Ellis Cose
Election night was the night of the white working-class male. But for many of us who are not white working-class males, it was truly frightening. Among the email messages I got as the returns came in were two from friends comparing the moment with 9/11. One, a gay mother of an infant, wrote, “This is not the country I want to raise a child in.” Another correspondent provided an account of a hate l...

Have no fear, trust God, elections are almost over: #tellusatoday Have no fear, trust God, elections are almost over: #tellusatoday
Allowing God inside creates inner peace with constructive results. Letter to the editor: Donald Trump supporters are convinced that America hasn’t been first, that it has been taken advantage of by other countries as a result of weakness, stupidity and corruption. They fear that a Hillary Clinton win will unleash countless horrendous invaders, ultimately sparking World War III. Clinton su...
