Real Life Losses, Abstract Gains

Mon, Sep 18, 2017

To understand why right-wing activists make a mistake in pushing deportation of so-called “Dreamers” we should consider the reasons for our consistent victories in defending gun rights.

No Rational Explanation for “It”

Wed, Sep 13, 2017

After a miserable summer for movies, with the box-office down some 15 percent across the board, September brought a big surprise: a modestly budgeted fright-fest with no big names smashed all records for horror films and for September releases in general. It, based on a 1986 Stephen King novel and a 90s TV miniseries, centers on an ageless cannibal clown who...

Wed, Sep 6, 2017

At key turning points in history, dramatic events seem to come together to force cooperation between even the most reluctant partisans. In the face of devastation from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, for instance, even a brief government shutdown becomes unthinkable, so Republicans and Democrats must work together to provide disaster relief, to pass a...

Evangelicals for Trump: A Matter of Self-Defense

Wed, Sep 6, 2017

The sharpest divisions in politics today aren’t based on race or economic status, but on religion. Last year’s exit polls showed 26 percent who described themselves as Evangelical Christians, and they preferred Donald Trump by a crushing margin of 80 to 16 percent. Among the rest of the electorate—the 74 percent who said they were NOT evangelical...
