It's official. America's attention, retention span is forty four seconds. Trump LOVES us for who we are. #$$$$ #THISIbelieve
One would think that there would be ONE person in Congress that thinks the people should have as good of health insurance as they have. Allegedly we are their master and they are our servants.
Have you noticed few hikers are climate deniers?

We recently discussed the controversy surrounding postings by June Chu, dean of the school's Pierson College, on Yelp. She was called classist for such comments as "This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low class folks who believe this is a real night out." Chu has now been fired by the university in a move that makes many academics feel uncomfortable over the monitoring of their statements outside of school in social media.

A handful of states, including California, have tried to minimize the partisanship in redistricting - but mostly because voters, not politicians, insisted on it.
We have previously discussed the erosion of free speech rights in high schools as well as the expansion of discipline for students for discussions and postings outside of school. That conflict was vividly shown in Pennsylvania where Peter Butera was speaking to the graduating class of his high school when he criticized the lack of power in student government. The response from Principal Jon Pollard was swift. Butera's mike was cut off and he was escorted stage.

In a demoralizing result for Democrats, Ms. Handel defeated Jon Ossoff, a political newcomer who had drawn an outpouring of support from liberals around the country.
In the coming weeks, I will be addressing a number of novel constitutional issues that are being raised in relation to the Russian investigation. The first such issue has been widely discussed: is there a constitutional barrier to any federal charge against President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.
Here is my recent column in USA Today:
7th Circuit again rejects short sentence for former officer, tosses judge from caseA federal judge who didn’t change his mind about a 14-month sentence for an Indiana police officer in an excessive force case won’t get a chance to reconsider.
But the *bad* news is that there’s every reason to expect that foreign — especially Russian — cyber-mischief could return in this year’s election, next year’s election and the 2020 presidential race, the assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division warned.
But the baaaad news is that state elections officials are frustrated with what they call a lack of information and a lack of meaningful support from the Department of Homeland Security, they told the Senate committee. They complain that the designation by DHS of the national elections system as “critical infrastructure” has meant, in practical terms,nothing.
But the really bad news is there is nothing like consensus about how to address any of this. hearings made clear that partisan tension between Republicans and Democrats, friction between state and federal officials and America’s structural cyber-weakness all mean that foreign meddling and election integrity will remain major problem for years to come.
Members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees tried to emphasize in their parallel hearings that despite Russian cyberattacks last year against 21 state elections systems — and possibly more — no votes were changed. So, there’s that.
And former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson detailed to the House committee how badly the 2016 mischief caught the Obama administration off guard — and how difficult it was to publicly attribute the mischief to Russia.
More from NPR’s Brian Naylor: “One of the candidates, Johnson said, not naming but clearly referring to Donald Trump, ‘was predicting that the election was going to be rigged,’ Johnson said, ‘and so we were concerned that by making the statement, we might in and of itself be challenging the integrity of the election process.’ ”
