The United States needs to rethink our culture of work

There is an ongoing fight in Congress and throughout the political arena over raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour. The budget reconciliation process presented the Senate an opportunity to raise the wage. Sadly, the measure was defeated as a part of the Covid relief bill passed in…

Instead of pressuring moderate Senators, Biden is giving them cover

As talks continue on the next Covid relief bill, it is clear that President Biden isn’t all that interested in raising the minimum wage despite his campaign promise to do so. Over the last week, Biden has used very careful language when speaking about the effort to raise the federal…

America survived the coup. Next time, we may not be as lucky.

The United States is still reeling after a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol by radical far-right extremists in early January. Incited by the President, a large group of insurrectionists attempted to stage a coup to prevent Joe Biden from being certified the rightful winner of last November’s election. Let’s…

Joe Biden and the Democrats will only harm themselves by trying to work with Republicans

As of November 16th, Donald Trump has still refused to concede the Presidential election to the rightful winner, Joe Biden. None of this is that surprising — Trump has never admitted defeat ever in his life. He instead lies about the system and the election being rigged against him. He…

A Biden Landslide is on the way

As the Trump Presidency falls apart, Biden has become the clear favorite

It is hard to forget the feelings from November 8, 2016, when Donald Trump did the unimaginable, in defeating Hillary Clinton to win the Presidency. Before the election, Clinton was declared a large favorite, with some models giving her as much as a 98 percent chance of winning. …

We shouldn’t yearn to return to the past

We are now over two months into most of the United States being under some type of lockdown order. …

It only took a pandemic for many to realize it

On Wednesday, April 8th, Senator Bernie Sanders decided to bow out of the Presidential campaign, essentially handing the Democratic nomination to the former Vice President Joe Biden. It was a heartbreaking day for so many dedicated supporters and volunteers. …

Only Bernie Sanders is siding with democracy.

The main story from the Democratic debate in Nevada was the utter collapse of Mike Bloomberg. He was bruised and battered by all of the others on stage, especially Elizabeth Warren. He had no response for his horrid record of Stop and Frisk or for the many allegations of sexual…
