Yes, I’m writing about Trump again

Yes, I’m writing about Trump again

I’m among those who really would like to move on. But as a lawyer, I know that there’s a legal principle that says, “Silence is consent,” so I just can’t allow myself the luxury of ignoring current events without comment. First, can you believe the naivety of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross when stating that he […]

Good news for some in the Class of 2017

Good news for some in the Class of 2017

The college class of 2017 is in a better employment position than any college class in a decade. With the unemployment rate (4.4 percent) lower than we’ve seen it since 2007, and with wages ticking up (although too slowly), today’s college graduates are far better off than their colleagues who graduated in 2008, when the […]

Shut down Trump’s sham voting fraud commission

Shut down Trump’s sham voting fraud commission

Throughout his campaign, President Trump trumpeted the baseless claim that our nation’s elections are riddled with voter fraud. He has repeatedly blamed his gaping three million plus-popular vote deficit on a phantom horde of illegal voters. He complained without evidence and unfairly maligned wide swaths of communities. Finally, two days after unceremoniously firing FBI Director […]

Donald Trump’s apology tour 

Donald Trump’s apology tour 

As truth begins to come to the attention of those who don’t want to hear it, The Donald travels out of the country to leave unpleasant facts behind.  He must apologize to Saudi Arabia for all the mean things he said about Islam and apologize to Israel for his inability to follow rules on visiting […]

For 100 days, Trump fought a war against Obama

For 100 days, Trump fought a war against Obama

Lauren Victoria Burke TRICE EDNEY NEWS WIRE There was the proposed massive budget cut to the Department of Housing and Urban Development; the incessant rhetoric about a rise in crime in the nation, that lacked evidence to back it up; the threats of a renewed war on drugs. There was even a failed attempt to […]

Thoughts of what could be

Thoughts of what could be

Although I am eager to direct this column’s focus on a topic other than the Trump administration, I am literally locked into responding to the never-ending confusion and drama which emanate from Trump World. The reason: Under Trump, all ‘ordinary’ citizens, especially women, occupy a tenuous and contentious place in society.  Without vigilance and resistance, […]

Republicans win a tiny, petty victory

Republicans win a tiny, petty victory

After months of “repeal and replace” rhetoric, Congress has finally passed a pitiful little bill designed to eliminate the Affordable Care Act. To watch Republicans gather in the Rose Garden to ‘celebrate’ the narrow passage of their paltry bill, you would have thought that 45 was about to sign ground-breaking legislation. Instead, changes to the […]

Trump succeeds in trashing civil rights

Trump succeeds in trashing civil rights

The reviews of Donald Trump’s first 100 days have generally focused on his failures, flip-flops and follies. We’ve heard a lot about what he’s failed to achieve, but far too little about what he is intent on doing. Trump’s time in office so far has been a systematic and vicious assault on civil rights. The […]

‘The Purge’ is happening right now

‘The Purge’ is happening right now

Being possessed by an abstract, non-linear psychological construct has always led me to search for the truth which may rest in both the sublime and the ridiculous.  Experience has shown me that even in the most unlikely scenario, a kernel of truth or reality may exist or have room to grow. Such is the case […]

Don’t rush to judgment on Bill Cosby

Don’t rush to judgment on Bill Cosby

EVIN COSBY GUEST COMMENTARY I am the youngest of five. I remember our family trips and moving to New York City just so we could be closer to my father, Bill Cosby, as he worked. He always wanted us to be a part of his whole life. I felt loved and remembered loving the moments […]
