It must be seriously frightening to be a liberal in today’s culture as I can’t imagine that there has ever been a comparatively sized conglomeration of folks who have had so much trepidation about essentially everything that happens — or doesn’t happen, for that matter.

Occasionally, I get notes or emails from readers, often with a kind word, but sometimes not so kind. I am appreciative that people are willing to spend time reading my thoughts, and one reader asked who I read on a regular basis.
Every death from the novel coronavirus is its own particular tragedy. So it’s easy to get overwhelmed as the number of confirmed infections in the United States climbs to 1.2 million and the death toll pushes past 70,000 — with some states having not yet reached their peak.

I have some concerns that Edgecombe County Chair Rev. Roosevelt Higgs refused to participate and to cooperate with the state Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin and Political Director Lorenzo Pedro on a conference call on Monday, April 6.
More than a fifth of the 55,000 known COVID-19 deaths in the United States have occurred at nursing 金殿国际棋牌-首页s and other elder-care facilities. Federal and state governments have largely turned a blind eye, often making no effort to test residents or staffs and leaving relatives, surrounding communities and the public in the dark.
Political pollsters often use a caveat that their audiences often ignore: “If the election were today …”
The Department of Education just released results of the quadrennial National Assessment of Educational Progress tests in U.S. history, civics and geography given in 2018 to thousands of American eighth-graders. Scores declined in geography and history; results in civics are unchanged since 2014.
Set aside for the moment how quickly and to what extent North Carolina and other states should reopen our economies. Set aside partisan wrangling ahead of the 金殿国际棋牌-首页 elections. Set aside the sweeping ideological claims about how COVID-19 “proves” everyone’s preexisting beliefs about the proper size and scope of government.
There are many moments in the Trump presidency when it appeared he would crash and burn like an ordinary politician. Each time he survived, even thrived, his approval ratings hovering in the mid-40s, even rising occasionally to the high 40s, though never reaching a failsafe 50 percent.
The Affordable Care Act has cost taxpayers a bundle, and now the Supreme Court says they are on the hook for billions of dollars in additional payments to insurers even though Congress never appropriated the money. The ruling will be even more expensive if it encourages more lawsuit demands for unappropriated funds from other statutes.
Fox News — as well as the “fake news” outlets — reported that President Trump had declared himself a “wartime president.” So how does Trump’s war on COVID-19 stack up against our other wars?
I’ve been teaching at George Washington University for almost 30 years, and conducting classes online for the last six weeks or so. And while the sample size is still quite small, I think it’s possible to reach several tentative data-driven conclusions.
Gov. Roy Cooper said last week that the state will ease out of lockdown in phases. Government and public health officials will look at several benchmarks on how the state is handling the novel coronavirus before fully reopening the economy.
The most pressing problem facing Americans today is how and when states and local areas reopen after the coronavirus lockdowns. President Trump, stressing the terrible economic damage the lockdowns have done, has (mostly) pressed for reopening sooner rather than later. He has released detailed guidelines for officials in the states to consult when deciding when to reopen.
Job was blameless and upright in God’s eyes and he was a prosperous man who loved his family. Life was good to Job until Satan came to God and suggested the only reason Job put his faith in Him was because God was protecting him.
Public fatigue with stay-at-金殿国际棋牌-首页 orders to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic is inevitable and understandable. Not understandable, nor forgivable, is the president of the United States inciting disrespect for his own government’s guidelines, which are unquestionably essential for the public health.
Being a medical doctor is a very fulfilling career — having the ability to save a life, prevent chronic disease and empower a community one person at a time. Physicians, nurses and EMTs all work toward learning an enormous amount of knowledge in service to humanity, but sometimes knowing too much seems worse than not knowing anything at all.
