Pity the poor Republican presidential candidates in the crowded primary field. They not only have to dumb down (we’re speaking in relative terms here, of course) their message to appeal to the knuckle-draggers in the early states, now they have to become sideshow acts in order to earn one of 10 spots on the Fox News debate stage next week. We’ve seen the carnival barker Donald Trump lead the way...  Read More

Just when you thought no Republican could possibly sink lower than Donald Trump, along comes Fox News entertainer and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Over the weekend, he said that with the nuclear deal negotiated with Iran, President Obama “will take the Israelis and basically march them to the door of the oven.” Huckabee is known for his crazy, beyond-the-pale comments, and he has used...  Read More

A lot of people love to hate California and are enjoying a little schadenfreude as they see the state struggle with years of drought. Many of those people probably secretly wish that they lived in this rock star of states. From population to scenic beauty, practically everything here is superlative. One superlative you may not know about is our gasoline prices, which recently surpassed Hawaii. ...  Read More

Have you had enough of Donald Trump now? The Donald, who is like a class clown, gets more audacious with each bombastic statement. The “conservative” cretins giggle at each new outrage and egg him on. Finally, with his attack on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) Saturday, though, he seems to have gone too far. Trump was asked a question about McCain at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa....  Read More

Earlier this month, a massive slide altered the vertical face of Yosemite National Park’s iconic Half Dome. Rock falls like this aren’t uncommon at the park; the effects of water, freezing and thawing, earthquakes and even plant growth can set off such slides. But a much more dangerous, unprecedented slide toward corporatization is threatening these national treasures on the eve of the centennial...  Read More

Gov. Scott Walker wants to spread the misery he has inflicted on Wisconsin to the whole nation. The 47-year-old college dropout announced that he is entering the 2016 presidential race Monday in an overwhelmingly Republican suburb of Milwaukee. He’s the 15th Republican in the crowded field, but he’s also thought to be a favorite of the infamous Koch brothers. He not only reportedly has the...  Read More

The Donald’s chunky diarrhea of the mouth keeps flowing. In recent hours, Trump has doubled down on his ugly comments and lashed out at his critics. Today he attacked Hillary Rodham Clinton as “the worst secretary of state in the history of the United States.” This is because Hillary weakly expressed “disappointment” at the celebrity real estate mogul on Tuesday. Maybe Hillary’s wan response was...  Read More

Last week, just days before the nation celebrated the 239th anniversary of its declaration of independence from a foreign tyrant, we potentially lost a bunch of jobs to the domestic tyranny of our home-grown oligarchs, the Koch brothers. The victory is likely to be short-lived, because enough members on both sides of the aisle in Congress recognize the importance of what we’re losing, so they...  Read More

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
