"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I'm years behind in some of my reading and finally just got to an old 2011 Rolling Stone article into the history of Roger Ailes and Fox News. I was going to scan the entire article and upload it thinking there might just be a summary on line... but it appears to be the entire article.
Printable, text only version here:
Does anyone think it hypocritical of the NAACP requiring participants at its "Moral March" in Raleigh, NC protesting, among other things, voter ID laws to present a photo ID, (driver's license, passport, or other valid government issued photo ID) and keep it on their person at all times.
Is this the same NAACP that required 2 forms of ID to attend a speech given by AG Holder last year about voter ID laws being unlawful?
Photo IDs were required to attend the last dimwit convention!
The Daily Targum published my open letter to the president of Rutgers:

The massive cuts to food stamp benefits in the recent Farm Bill are nothing to celebrate, but there is one piece of good news in that legislation – legalized industrial hemp. When President Obama signed that bill into law, he finalized an amendment which legalized industrial hemp production, although only for research purposes. That amendment was backed by an organization called Vote Hemp, which is working to revitalize the industrial hemp industry in our nation.
Florida Republicans don't want everyone to vote. After hours-long voting lines during the 2012 elections, people and organizations throughout that state offered suggestions to streamline the voting process. One of the ideas presented was using the student union at the University of Florida as a voting precinct for college students, but Secretary of State Ken Detzner has rejected that idea.
On-breaking-ones-neck is a story by a surgeon that experienced healthcare firsthand. He is also a nonagenarian, that wasn't ready to die. He narrates an interesting story from a unique perspective. One thing anyone ought to pick up from his tale is the need to keep informed of procedures, risks, and options for conveying questions about your own care. He was intubated with a tracheostomy so communications were scribble pads through his wife.
I'M SORRY TO AGREE WITH THE RIGHT AND SAY, OBAMACARE AS CURRENTLY CONFIGURED, IE, ROMNEYCARE SUCKS.
West Virginia is finally sticking up for pregnant women. Although it's surprising that such a law isn't already in place, lawmakers in that state just proposed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. That legislation would require employers to make “reasonable accommodations” for pregnant employees – but – only if it doesn't cause “undue hardship” for the employer. Although there are some existing federal protections for pregnant workers, many still suffer from lost wages or health problems when employers refuse to accommodate them.
House Speaker John Boehner is standing in the way of immigration reform. In a press conference on Thursday, the conservative lawmaker said he will not move an immigration bill forward until House Republicans are able to trust our president. In other words, the Republicans have no intention of ever fixing our broken immigration system, but they can't come up with a single valid reason to oppose comprehensive reform.
