Last weekend I got to exhale. As an animal rights activist this is no easy feat. We hold our breath a lot, praying and fighting for the best outcome but always prepared for the worst. Such is the life of an activist. However, some days we get a break. Some days, we even get to […]

Once we get past the issue of how the government shutdown was poorly handled by a minority of Republicans, we can see that perhaps Republicans have a valid point about a flawed law that is having a dubious beginning thus far.  Since the beginning of the health care reform debate starting after the historic inauguration […]

However, the party’s lack of diversity overall may have proven to impact the nation starting with the government shutdown October 1.
