How We Can Use the Pain and Grief in Ferguson to Change America's Police PracticesjaredsxtnNov 25, 201402159
The decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson for his role in the shooting death of Michael Brown shines a spotlight on the flawed criminal justice system that we have set up in this country. An unarmed teenager was shot and killed by a police officer and that officer will never see the inside of a criminal courtroom. It's tough to wrap my head around how this is still possible in this wonderful country of ours, but unfortunately Mike Brown is one of hundreds of unarmed citizens who die from over zealous police year in and year out. This has to stop.
Black Friday Will Only Destroy Thanksgiving If We Allow It TosbfriedmanNov 24, 201412222
The day American shoppers lose their minds for moderately awesome, limited supply discounting is upon us! Black Friday is here, and some of the largest retailers across the country are following the annoyingly disturbing trend of opening their doors even earlier this year than the last.What was once a tradition that actually started on early Friday morning (the Friday directly after Thanksgiving Day) has been slowly but surely creeping into Turkey Day itself, confusing and morphing the two now completely American traditions into one blob of consumer culture haze.
CNN's 'Ivory Tower' Will Change The Way You Think About College, Forever.sbfriedmanNov 21, 201411280
If you are going to watch one single documentary about higher education in the United States, you can do no better than CNN's 'Ivory Tower'. Is College Worth It? That's the question Director Andrew Rossi sets out to answer. The points made in this documentary are nuanced, and the answers are many.
Here's Why President Obama's Executive Order on Immigration is ConstitutionaljaredsxtnNov 20, 2014024512
Five million people were just informed they don't have to worry about uprooting their entire lives and be sent back to a country they no longer call home. Five million people were just informed they will be able to come out of the shadows and not have to continue to constantly look over their shoulders. Five million people were just informed that a random traffic stop will not be the beginning of the end for them. And five million people were just told they can to go to bed tonight knowing that the President of the United States just told them they are welcome in this wonderful country.
Repubilicans Caught Using Twitter to Stretch Election LawjaredsxtnNov 17, 201402537
An investigation by CNN has exposed that the National Republican Congressional Committee and Super PAC's associated with Republican candidates in the 2014 election cycle set up fake Twitter accounts to share internal polling data, which seems to violate campaign finance laws in the post Citizens United world. The Twitter accounts used coded language to share the polling data with Super PAC's such as American Crossroads and American Action Network to help them determine where to spend their advertising dollars.
Obama's Climate Agreement With China Just Might Save the WorldjaredsxtnNov 13, 201453973
President Obama's deal with China to dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions may go down as one of his lasting legacies once everything is said and done with his Administration. The deal, which was announced at a joint press conference, set far reaching goals of reducing carbon emissions that surprised most everyone over how much the two countries agreed to cut. Make no mistake about it--there are some steep hurdles that both countries must overcome to achieve their goals, but it can be done if we change the way we approach our energy consumption and become more dependent on renewable energy sources into the future.
Rethinking The Meaning of Veterans DayjaredsxtnNov 11, 201413300
Veterans Day is one of those holidays that tends to make me think a lot. Millions of honorable American citizens have fought and died for our country, but I cringe at the collective groupthink we have in this country when it comes to idolizing a military that hasn't liberated one country since the end of World War II. I truly believe the time is right for us as a nation to rethink the way we thank our veterans.The origins of Veterans Day are grounded in a desire to thank the soldiers who fought in the first World War.
The $30 Million Education Race That Went Completely Under The Nation's RadarsbfriedmanNov 6, 201401874
Money ruled these midterms, as pundit Jon Stewart of 'The Daily Show' pointed out. And in a big way. A $4 Billion big way. Yes, that's how much cash was inserted into the combined races for all the candidates in all the races this midterm season. And as Stewart also pointed out, it seems that 'ideas' were not on the ballot this year. The GOP largely ran on an anti-Obama message that was oddly reminiscent of Obama's very own now infamous slogans of 'hope and change', although their version included running Obama under the bus, and any Democrat that even kind of resembled Obama politics.
