LGBTQ Couples Challenge Florida Ban On Same-Sex Marriage
When hundreds of millions of people are governed by certain laws that run contrary to logic and compassion, then everyone suffers from the irrational fears of an older generation of voters. According to the Center for Disease Control, around 88,000 Americans die each year from alcohol related deaths. MADD states that 1.2 million Americans were arrested of drunk driving in 2011 and 10, 322 Americans died from drunk driving in 20 ...

A Partisan Divide Over Israel? Not Really.

Ron Paul Campaigns In Nevada
For most of the post World War II era, support for Israel inside the United States has been one of the few foreign policy issues, indeed, one of the few issues at all, that largely has united Democrats and Republicans. Yes, there was a wing of the Democratic Party that was sympathetic to the Palestinian cause that started to emerge in the 1970s, but it  has been, and remains, a fairly small part of that party. For the most part, you hear the same strong support from Re ...

Andrew Sullivan of Great Britain fights
As the debate rages over the ethics of native advertising on both sides of the Atlantic, regulators in the U.K. have added more fuel to the fire. A ruling by the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority against Outbrain is forcing publishers and technology platforms to review the labeling of paid content recommendations on their sites. Anyone who has spent more than 10 minutes online has seen these widgets: paid content on ...

1994 – The Year The Internet Came Of Age

Source: The Moderate Voice

I think it was in 1994 that I first installed a modem in my very slow PC and signed up with America On Line.  Via Andrew Sullivan, Leon Neyfakh thinks that 1994 was the year that the internet became a major part of our lives not just a tech curiosity. The Web had existed for a couple of years as a kind of insiders’ tech experiment, and the Internet had been around longer. But it was 1994 when the world pivoted, a ...

Obama’s Actual Scorecard

Ted Cruz Addresses Conservative Policy Summit
Andrew Sullivan contrasts criticisms of the Obama administration’s record with actual figures on The Daily Dish. The news narrative of the summer is the floundering of the president in any number of ginned-up stories: he “lost” the Middle East (as if that’s a bad thing); he’s created a crisis in illegal immigration (even though the bulk of the blame goes to a Bush-era law); he’s responsible for total gridlock (as if Ted Cruz did not exist); he’s been s ...

Islam And World War One

Source: Outside the Beltway

Baylor University History Professor Philip Jenkins makes a provocative argument, namely that the radical Islam that we are familiar with today is yet another of the innumerable consequences of the First World War: Out of the political ferment immediately following the war came the most significant modern movements within Islam, including the most alarming forms of Islamist extremism. So did the separatism that eventually gave birth to the Islamic sta ...

Blogs Are Dead, Long Live Blogging

Andrew Sullivan of Great Britain fights
My latest for  The Hill, “Blogs Are Dead, Long Live Blogging,” has posted. Written in response to news that The New York Times is phasing out or consolidating “almost half” of its blogs, I reflect on the changes in the medium over the last decade-plus. I conclude: Over the years, my own blogging production has dwindled, from an average of 13 pieces a day to fewer than that a week. Partly, I’ve tired of feeding the famished animal and of much of the domestic political debat ...
