About 10 years ago, I got a notice from “the city,” informing me that effective immediately, my family should begin separating and sorting the recyclables from our trash.
U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley surprised virtually everybody last week when she announced she’d be resigning from her post at the end of the year.
“America can fight back against bullies” declares Mr. Robert Reich in the Oct. 4 edition of The Greeneville Sun. Well, you got that right. That very fact is what elected Donald Trump.
I was Greeneville High School’s first “queen.” It was my idea to have a football queen, and this was the beginning of “Homecoming Queen.” When I approached the faculty with my idea, they agreed that the school should have a football queen.
In 2016 Democrats were handed a gift named Donald Trump, a bumbling, blurting, barstool political ignoramus who nonetheless managed to insult his way into the presidency, despite all their “best” — and I mean worst — efforts.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to put “America First” in his policies, and there is a lot of evidence he is delivering on that promise.
Arguably a contributing factor to the continuation of abortion is that it is performed out of sight and thus, out of many minds.
Here’s what gets me about progressives.
The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.
Trying to protect an open internet state by state, rather than by federal law, is a daunting and unwieldy goal.
Anyone still unsure of how (or even whether) they’ll vote in the midterm elections should consider this: All three branches of government are now under the control of one party, and that party is under the control of Donald J. Trump.
In a speech announcing her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) reminded me of some of the great orators of the past. Her speech was measured in tone, substantive in content and delivered with conviction.
Back in 1975, Tom T. Hall sang, “I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow. I like beer, it helps me unwind and makes me feel mellow. Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear. This little refrain should help me explain, as a matter of fact I like beer.”
The other day, a woman confessed to me that she’s a Republican.
One of the lasting — and perhaps most important — pieces of Dolly Parton’s legacy will be the Imagination Library, the program that puts books in the hands of Tennessee children from birth to age 5, at no cost to their families.
As I write this, it remains unclear whether Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
As a physician with more than 30 years of experience and co-chair of the House GOP Doctors Caucus, I am working to ensure every American has access to the health care they need and coverage they can afford.
Senate Has Been Disgraceful
This week, Brett Kavanaugh’s fate will likely be determined. The FBI will fact-find the various decades-old allegations and present its findings for the Senate Judiciary Committee, and maybe more importantly, the court of public opinion, to judge.
As a kid I was always a head shorter than other boys, which meant I was bullied — mocked, threatened, sometimes assaulted.
Why is Brett Kavanaugh so upset?
Who believes another FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh will be the end of it?
Give the Republicans credit: they worked hard to create the appearance of enlightened compassion.
Don’t Reduce Number Of Commissioners
When I was a wee lad, my father taught me a new phrase: “planned obsolescence.” I had asked him, “Why don’t cars last forever?” Maybe I saw an old grandfather clock, or some other timeworn item, and wondered why they seemed to last forever, while cars had to be replaced every few years.
At 2 p.m. Thursday, it looked as though Brett Kavanaugh’s fate was sealed. Professor Christine Blasey Ford had just wrapped up a stunning and remarkable five hours of testimony before the Senate Judicial Committee and, indeed, the world.
Gina Sosa is not impressed by attempted rape.
Later this week, the fiscal year ends, and Congress is making progress on the appropriations process.
The U.S. Senate must exercise great caution in handling Bret Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
This has become grotesque.
The attempted political assassination of Brett Kavanaugh is bad for the country, but good for a Trumpian attitude toward American politics.
Millennials (and their younger siblings from Generation Z) are the largest, most diverse and progressive group of potential voters in American history, comprising fully 30 percent of the voting-age population.
The Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus announced last year it was closing after a 146-year run, largely because of high operating costs, costly legal battles with animal rights groups and declining ticket sales, especially after elephants were retired from the show.
