About a month ago, Donald Trump’s standing among the Republican presidential candidates appeared to be weakening while Ben Carson appeared to gaining support. Then the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris occurred, and support flowed back to The Donald. Why? Ben Carson’s soothing, low-key approach may have appeared weak to Republican voters alongside Trump’s bellicosity. An ABC-Washington Post...  Read More

America’s corporate titans are no doubt giving thanks in advance for the bountiful tax breaks they’re about to receive from Congress. Capitol Hill is swarming with lobbyists pitching a tale of over-taxation for corporations, and gullible or venal lawmakers — of both parties, it turns out — are buying it. Congress is getting ready to revise the corporate tax code. “Conservatives,” business...  Read More

Paris is a very old city, originally settled in the third century BC by the Celts. Over that extraordinarily long history, the city has seen some extraordinary evil. Certainly the eruption Friday night was among the worst in recent history, probably since World War II. I can’t illuminate the story very much, but I feel compelled to respond on an emotional level, in solidarity with the French...  Read More

In the absence of action by a dithering, do-nothing Congress on comprehensive immigration reform, President Obama last year issued executive orders to relieve the suffering of about 5 million undocumented immigrants. He humanely asserted the authority of his office to allow some undocumented immigrants to receive work permits and to shield them from immediate deportation. He instituted a...  Read More

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, the fourth Republican presidential debate will be held in Milwaukee, Wis. It’s sponsored by the Wall Street Journal and will air on the Fox Business Network. Get ready for more whoppers, and I don’t mean the Burger King sandwiches. If Diogenes looked for an honest man among the candidates in the Republican field, he would come up completely empty-handed. None of us is...  Read More

Last week the House of Representatives passed a $325-billion, six-year transportation bill. The new broom, Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), proclaimed it a “great week in the people’s House,” but in fact it was dysfunction as usual. The pea-brained small-government “conservatives” in the House Republican leadership refused to allow the simplest, most logical step — raising the gasoline tax — to...  Read More

At the Iowa GOP’s Growth and Opportunity Forum on Saturday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) whined about the big bully moderators in last Wednesday’s debate. He called them “left-wing operatives” trying to sabotage Republican chances of taking the White House in 2016. Wah! Wah! Wah! He said, “How about instead of a bunch of attack journalists, we actually have real conservatives,” and he asked the...  Read More
Return to Main Blog Page 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 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!
