You May Not Be Into Politics but Politics is Into You

47 sec ago
People, especially young people, often say that they dont care about politics. Theyre just not into it; they think politics doesnt affect their lives. Even if they cared enough to get involved, theyre too busy with school or building careers and families, or trying to find a job after being laid off. 2014-10-01T09:34:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Joy Overbeck

NY Professor: Global Warming Created ISIS

47 sec ago
I know I was surprised to learn that 1.4 degrees of warming (over the last century) was enough to push the cradle of civilization into mass chaos. (Because, as we all know, it was always such a peaceful corner of the world up until recently.) 2014-10-01T00:30:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Michael Schaus

A Bizarre Love Triangle in Pharma. I like all three!

47 sec ago
So to recap, Allergan loves Salix, but Valeant loves Allergan. Allergan doesnt love Valeant and the Bill Ackman/Pershing offer as it would result in big R&D cuts. The matter is further complicated by the fact that Ackman is Allergans largest shareholder at 10% and he is trying to force Allergan to love him. 2014-10-01T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Bill Gunderson

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Channels Margaret Sanger

47 sec ago
Thanks to US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a well-known liberal and feminist, Americans are getting an inside look at what Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthoods founder, probably would have embraced today and who she would have embraced today. From her recent comments on abortion, Justice Ginsburg would have been praised by Ms. Sanger for her comments on poor people and abortion. 2014-10-01T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Kristan Hawkins

The Campus Crusade for Comfort

47 sec ago
Nearly half of the abortions in this country are performed on college-age women. According to Students for Life of America, 70 percent of all abortion-providing and abortion-referring facilities are located within five miles of a college campus. Given those staggering numbers, it would seem that campus ministries would be positioning themselves to do something about the problem. 2014-10-01T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Mike Adams

The Brightest Spot in Holder's Record: How the Attorney General Tried To Make Criminal Justice Less Senselessly Punitive

47 sec ago
Attorney General Eric Holder, who last week said he plans to step down as soon as Congress approves his replacement, sees criminal justice reform as the "signature achievement" of his five and a half years in office. He is probably right about that, especially since his record on civil liberties and executive power is almost uniformly awful. 2014-10-01T00:01:00-04:00 2014-10-01T14:13:28Z Jacob Sullum
