BUSH: It isn't worth it in the long run

I'm sure confirmation bias always existed to some degree. Even cave men and women probably liked having their beliefs reinforced by others. Read more

Commentary: Martin Luther King Jr.'s fight for health care equity must continue

America celebrates a distortion of Martin Luther King Jr., void of his prophetic call to justice by any nonviolent means necessary. Particularly around the annual remembrance of his life Monday, watch for his words to be repackaged in tasty sound bites and stripped of the so-called extremism that prompted FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to label him "the most dangerous man in America." Chicago ... Read more

Commentary: Joe McCarthy won the Democratic debate

When Elizabeth Warren aimed her character assassination at Bernie Sanders in the seventh Democratic presidential debate, she may have thought she'd won a round. And maybe she did. But the real winner was that old red baiter, the late Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin. Everything that man said and did was a lie (to borrow a description from another McCarthy - Mary, the writer). His dishonesty was so ... Read more

Commentary: Martin Luther King Jr. would want peace, not war with Iran

A great way to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is to listen to his words for peace. We need his inspiration as we are dangerously sliding toward war with Iran, and many other conflicts remain ongoing. King advocated diplomacy, talking to your enemies to build peace treaties instead of an endless spiral of tension and violence. When Dr. King won the Nobel Peace Prize he said: "Sooner or ...

Commentary: After stirring up the Middle East, Trump now wants NATO's help? That's rich

President Donald Trump has come up with a new solution for the Middle East, a region that has embroiled the United States for decades in conflict and war. "I think that NATO should be expanded, and we should include the Middle East," he told reporters last week. "And we can come home, or largely come home and use NATO." He even had a name for it. "You call it NATOME" - NATO plus the Middle ... Read more

Commentary: I went to a seminar on triggering — and was triggered by a MAGA hat

LOS ANGELES - I circle around UCLA's Moore Hall for the third time. Security officers block each entrance. Police in riot gear patrol the streets. Metal fences wall off the building from protesters, and barricades separate protesters on the left from those on the right. Everyone prepares for Donald Trump Jr.'s arrival to promote his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants ... Read more

Commentary: Why an Oscar win for '1917' wouldn't be any better than last year's 'Green Book' triumph

Please disregard this column, if anything besides the World War I drama "1917" wins the Producers Guild of America award Saturday. If "1917" does win, there's a strong statistical likelihood that director Sam Mendes' flamboyantly austere paradox - a morally simple, technically complex depiction of two soldiers going through all kinds of hell, from trench warfare to temporary blindness to ...

Commentary: Anti-Trump Republican group pushes for evangelical conversion

When the anti-Trump Republicans of the Lincoln Project crafted their first digital ad, they didn't go after college-educated East Coast urbanites or suburban soccer moms. Instead, they targeted some of the most passionate and some say, inexplicable of the president's supporters: Evangelical Christians. Since Trump first burst on the political scene, he's enjoyed strong support from white ... Read more

Commentary: PETA's 2020 vision: An end to speciesism

It's obvious when you think about it: Most conflict stems from the idea of "us vs. them." Our family vs. theirs. Our country vs. theirs. Our religion vs. theirs. Our species vs. theirs. In the ranking of species, humans have conveniently put Homo sapiens not only at the top but also in its own category separate from the rest of the animal kingdom - a ranking as inaccurate and arbitrary as ...
