• President Obama Shoots Down Controversial SOPA Bill

    In a strong and popular political move, President Barack Obama has stepped in to state that he refuses to support the controversial SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).    This has led to a delay on the matter, with Congress seeking to revisit the issue in a month.  They will have meetings with full awareness that the White House will veto anything that is not more narrowly focused. Obama’s move has upset powerful executives in Hollywood and also the Entertainment Software Association.  One of the biggest sponsors of the bill, the Motion Picture Association of America, is expected to regroup and...

I thought about that for some time and realized that a great majority of couples have come to a 'new normal' called Relationship Purgatory. They exist together with the sole

  • Mormons Say They Face More Discrimination Than African-Americans

    According to a survey conducted by the   Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life , Mormons feel that they face more discrimination than African Americans. With Mitt Romney, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, campaigning in the largely evangelical state of South Carolina, many pundits have assumed that Romney’s religion will be an Achilles heel for him in the state.

The study indicated that almost half of the respondents said that Mormons face discrimination in the United States today, compared with less than...

  • Trickle Down Economics: Romney Gives $50 to a Black Woman

    by Yvette Carnell If  anyone ever asks me why conservative strategies for economic empowerment don’t work, I’ll forward them this clip of Romney giving $50 dollars to a black woman. The woman, Ruth Williams, said she was praying for divine guidance as to how she would pay a late electric bill when she happened upon the Romney tour bus. (Here God is, again, working in all sorts of mysterious ways. The divine led this woman to Mitt instead of, say, a winning lottery ticket, but that’s a story for another day.) Point being, the problem with ‘trickle down’ is that it leaves...

  • ‘Smoking Object’ Tossed at the White House

    Washington (CNN)  – A “smoking object” was thrown over the White House fence late Tuesday, and authorities have closed the north gate of the residence while the object is investigated, U.S. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie said.

  • Sad and Sick: White Students Yell N-Word While Beating Asian Student Half to Death

    This video is not for the faint of heart.  When we talk about the problems of bullying in America, these videos remind us that there are thousands of kids who are not protected from the predators in their communities. This video of an Asian student was apparently taken by one of the friends of the assailants.  The Asian boy runs away at the end, and we can only hope that he got away.

  • Dr. Boyce: Why We Need to Listen to Cornel and Tavis on Poverty

    Last week, there were rumblings about  Tavis Smiley ’s PBS program, “ Reawakening America. ”  The program was designed to encourage politicians and citizens to deal with poverty in America, which continues to be ignored by the powers-that-be in Washington. In fact, in last year’s State of the Union Address,  President Obama was the first Democratic president since Harry S. Truman  not to mention poverty for the entire address. As expected,  Cornel West  joined Tavis as one of the panelists for the event.  West is a long-time political partner in crime with Smiley, and in spite of any criticism they...
