Obama's Winning 4th Quarter Game PlanSchmidtJan 21, 201522163
Josh Ernest has referred to Obama's proposed budget and executive actions for his last two years in office as "Obama's 4th Quarter", sidestepping any suggestion that it's more about setting the agenda for the 2016 election. As Super Bowl football fever has hit America, I will keep that football analogy and put my perspective on a winning game plan for America and for how President Obama can finish out the mission that he had started in 2009.
Obama Moves to Cement His Legacy With a Rallying Cry to Lift up the Middle ClassjaredsxtnJan 19, 2015022128
Don't ever think of telling President Obama he is a lame duck. He has too many things he still wants to accomplish before he leaves and beginning the process of lifting up the middle class is at the top of his list. This is not something that he will be able to accomplish himself, or even something that we will be able to accomplish in the next two years, but it is something we can do if we listen to the President and recommit to having a strong and lasting middle class in this country.President Obama will be laying his vision of how we can accomplish this feat when he delivers his annual State of the Union address on January 20th.
When Fear and Hate Rules Our MindsSchmidtJan 19, 20150267
"In time we hate that which we often fear." - William Shakespeare, Antony and CleopatraOn this Martin Luther King Day and as President Obama prepares for his seventh State of the Union speech, I ponder our political divide and especially how President Obama over these often tumultuous past years has become the focus of that divide, often rearing its ugly head in hate.
What's More Bipartisan Than Having an Educated Public?jaredsxtnJan 9, 201523404
Is college a right or a privilege? If President Obama has his way then it will soon be a right for every single high school graduate in this country regardless of income or social class. The premise is simple: extend the already guaranteed number educational years every student is eligible to receive by two. Instead of the guaranteed K-12, students would now be guaranteed an Associates Degree if they are willing to work for it.
Charlie Hebdo Killings Underscore The Necessity for Freedom of SpeechsbfriedmanJan 7, 201533477
“We, writers, journalists, intellectuals, call for resistance to religious totalitarianism and for the promotion of freedom, equal opportunity and secular values for all.” This was just part of a collaborative response by French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo to then-French President Jacques Chirac back in 2006. What were they responding to? Well, at the time, a cowardly and purely political statement made by Chirac that went as follows: “Anything that can hurt the convictions of someone else, in particular religious convictions, should be avoided. Freedom of expression should be exercised in a spirit of responsibility.
Six Reasons Why 2014 Was a Great Year for DemocratsjaredsxtnDec 29, 201413695
2014 was a great year for liberals. Marriage equality is sweeping across the nation, the federal courts now have a majority of liberal jurists, America's foreign policy is being reshaped in Obama's image, and both red and blue states voted to choose if they wanted to legalize a plant. Democrats may have lost the Senate, but their priorities surely won in 2014. Here are the top six reasons why 2014 was a great year for Democrats.1) Democrats Take Over the CourtsThis will perhaps be the lasting impact of the Obama Administration.
Sony's 'The Interview' Will Be Leaked; You Cannot Suppress Media Completely (Updated)sbfriedmanDec 18, 201413232
It's official, Sony has announced they will not release the highly controversial film 'The Interview' amid massive and ongoing hacker attacks on their company and terrorist-like threats to potential viewers of the film. No national movie theater chains wanted to show the film in their building out of understandable fear of some kind of attack, and Sony soon had no choice but to decide to scrap the film release altogether.
'It's Time For a New Approach': President Obama Moves to Normalize Relations With CubajaredsxtnDec 17, 201432859
Cuba may soon be open again! After five decades of a failed policy that few could justify by any reasonable means, President Obama announced that it was time to move America in a new direction and begin to normalize relations with the island state. The bombshell announcement was made after months of secret negotiations between the Obama and Castro Administrations.President Obama began his speech by telling the world that:"Today we are making these changes because it is the right thing to do.
