China to build Moonbase To Mars within decade, US Lagging Space exploration offers unknown opportunities to not only improve the quality of life on Earth, but the quality of our species. Knowledge is power, and right now China is usurping American power. The new developments from Beijing should spark a fire in the White House, because returning to the Moon in 2024 isn't progress it's a lack of political will. Trump needs to commit to the Mars expedition and beat China.

"Ageism" Wrong Against Old or Young in Politics and Workplace, from Clyburn to Ocasio-Cortez "Ageism" against old or young, from Jim Clyburn to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is wrong in politics and the workplace. The popular misconception is that old (or young) politicians can't fix today's problems. From the youngest to the oldest, we should elect, re-elect or defeat politicians because of what they bring to the table, not their age.

Reforms Against Partisan Gridlock Would Protect Incumbents Too For nearly the last two decades, public disdain of Congress has been building, punctuated about every four years, such as in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018, by wave elections that sweep the majority from power. No matter which party holds the Speaker's gavel or the size of their majority, the public views Congress as paralyzed by obstructionists and mired in indecision.

Private Prisons -- Justice for Corporate Bottom Line The Department of Justice has found that private prisons "had more frequent incidents of contraband finds, assaults, uses of force, lockdowns, guilty findings on inmate-discipline charges, and selected categories of grievances." In other words, private prisons are more unsafe, more unjust and less effective than government-run prisons. So why would any state use them?

Trump Stops Money to Hungary Free Press Either Because of Pro-Russian Leader, or He Wants Authoritarians to Have Control Even as the European Parliament voted for disciplinary against Hungary for imposing a risk to the values of the European Union, President Donald Trump is nurturing the newly developed relationship between Viktor Orban's illiberal democracy and the U.S. by deferring a $700 thousand grant to promote free speech in Hungary's media.

Inauguration Slush Fund: Where Did the Money Go? We Still Don't Know There is no day that defines the institution of the Presidency more than the inauguration. From Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address to JFK's first, inauguration day is a celebration of peaceful transfer of power. Yet according to FEC filings and reporting by OpenSecrets, of the $106 million raised, more than double the amount by either of Obama's inaugurations, it is still almost entirely unclear how most was spent.

Washington's Latest Budget Cruelty Hurts Detroit and Nation's Vulnerable On June 19, House Republicans released a proposal that would balance the federal budget in nine years by cutting entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.
