A Minister and a day off his rocker
10/11/2019 9:34:37 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I was tootling along one day last week, quite focused on getting my business for the day done. In fact, I was feeling good about the progress I was making with my “to-do list.” Nothing is more satisfying to me than the sense of being in control of my schedule. I love checking off items on my “to-do list.” As the scheme of things usually develops with me, this euphoric situation was not long-lived. It was left to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage to bring a sense of reality into my life. “Haven’t you...

Rev. C.T. Vivian's Wisdom
10/11/2019 9:33:29 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   Legendary civil rights leader Rev. C.T. Vivian turned 95 this year, celebrating a lifetime of wisdom and service. Rev. Vivian, a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, was a leader in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a confidant of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and a role model for so many of us in the 1960s era of civil rights activism. He remains an indispensable long haul moral, racial, and economic justice warrior. I am so grateful for his friendship and example. A few years ago Rev. Vivian inspired and challenged a...

Attorney General Barr and President Trump are constitutionally obligated to enforce the law, prevent intel abuse and root out corruption
10/11/2019 9:27:18 AM

By Robert Romano   To hear House Democrats and left-wing media outlets tell it, any discharge of President Donald Trump’s official duties that might tangentially benefit him politically is now a high crime or misdemeanor and an impeachable offense. But Presidents and their Attorneys General are supposed to enforce the law, ensure intelligence and spy powers are not abused and to root out corruption. It’s like saying creating jobs and improving the economy is a personal political interest and impeachable. It is a silly argument to make, but here we are. In...

HUD says deregulation, not affordable housing, needed to solve homelessness
10/4/2019 11:34:57 AM

By Charlene Crowell   For more than a decade, economists, lawmakers, and others have heralded the nation’s economy. Often citing how unemployment has declined as new jobs have been created, or Wall Street trading and major bank profits rising, some might be led to believe that all is well in America. But as Sportin’ Life in the folk opera Porgy and Bess sang, “It ain’t necessarily so.” On September 16, California Governor Gavin Newsom joined by state officials representing cities and counties wrote a letter that urged President...

Protect Children Not Guns!
10/4/2019 11:33:15 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   “Sometimes, I sit back and I have to escape from what I see and hear every day.” I hope this opening line of Milwaukee 11-year-old Sandra Parks’ award-winning essay on gun violence will make enough adults wake up and act to stop the slaughter of children. An aspiring writer, Sandra entered her school district’s Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest in sixth grade with “Our Truth,” her devastating account of growing up in a neighborhood and nation terrorized by guns. “We are in a state of chaos,” she...

To grin or not to grin, is my dilemma
10/4/2019 11:07:05 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Through the years, I have experienced one dilemma after another. I remember my father once told me, “Son, when life delivers you a dilemma, make lemonade out of it.” To which I looked at him with a big grin and said, “Is there any dilemma I can make a root beer out of it?” My father did not grin back. This may have been the beginning of my career as a grinner. Rarely a day goes by that I do not find something to grin about. I have earned a Ph.D. in Grinology. One problem I have discovered in this is that I do not...

I wasn’t born old, it just happened that way
9/26/2019 11:07:52 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Everywhere I look these days, people are obsessed with age. More products are sold today to make you look younger than anything else. Everybody desires to look younger than what they actually are. I think that is rather hypocritical. Just saying. It seems to me that nobody is happy with the way they are. When you are young, you want to be old and then when you get old you want to be young. Nobody is happy being what they are at the time. The problem with me is that not all my clocks are ticking at the same time. Things seem to just creep up on...

Ask the Question: When Are We Going to End Child Poverty in America?
9/26/2019 11:06:03 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   “No child living in America today should have to worry about whether they’ll have a place to sleep at night or enough food to eat. But these are daily realities for the 1 in 6 poor children in this country. Children like me.” These are the words of 18-year-old Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota Beat the Odds® scholarship winner Israel Glenn in a petition to add a question about child poverty to an upcoming presidential debate. Israel continues: “Growing up on the North Side of Minneapolis, I know what it...

Debt Collectors Target People Making Less Than $50K
9/26/2019 11:00:31 AM

By Charlene Crowell   A new survey asked likely voters across the country what they thought of a proposed debt collection rule. The response was strong and broad opposition.  Proposed earlier this year by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Kathleen Kraninger, the rule would authorize debt collectors to expand how often consumers could be contacted as well as the ways such contacts could be made: email, text messages, and more.   Conducted by Lake Research Partners and Chesapeake Beach Consulting, the poll was jointly...

Sense of privilege and ‘right’ drives college admission scandal
9/19/2019 12:33:52 PM

Felicity Huffman says she just wanted to give her daughter "a fair shot" at getting into the college of her choice. That is the reason the Emmy Award-winning actress paid someone to cheat on her daughter’s college entrance exam. Huffman pled guilty in federal court to paying $15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT exam answers illicitly corrected by a test proctor. Huffman, who, along with her celebrity husband, William H. Macy, reportedly has a net worth of $45 million, believed that her daughter, Sophia Macy, was educationally disadvantaged...
