Mangling Trump talk on veterans

Staff Sgt. Chad Robichaux is a Marine who developed post-traumatic stress disorder in the aftermath of eight tours in Afghanistan. After years of suffering, he now runs a counseling program dedicated to helping veterans avoid suicide, divorce and other attendant problems. He knows from his own experience that a faith-based approach works. Our government - allergic to faith-based programs -isn't really interested, especially under President Barack Obama.

Having a cow over flatulence

With the election season in full swing, a number of sobering issues have entered the discussion, including taxes, race relations, and foreign policy. But California has taken the initiative to declare a new matter of public urgency: cow farts.

‘Hilary: The Movie’

Hillary Clinton has promised that in her first 30 days as president she will propose a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision, which she characterized as a "disaster for our democracy." Because Clinton has a better-than-even chance of being elected president, who am I to argue?

You, too, could vote for Donald Trump

The political press corps has known Bob Stern as the straight-arrow president of Los Angeles' Center for Governmental Studies who helped Jerry Brown create the Fair Political Practices Commission in 1974. Since the center closed its L.A. offices in 2011, Stern seems to have developed a devious side - or was it there all along? I ask, because in his "The November Election" course at UCLA extension, Stern managed to set up a scenario wherein a substantial majority - he thinks two-thirds of the class of westside liberals, his wife, Joan, says three-quarters - raised their hands when asked if they could ...

Hillary’s Red Army march of tax-hike destruction

You've got to hand it to Team Hillary Clinton. Its message discipline is awesome -- at least in terms of taxes. It reminds me of the orderly march of the Chinese Red Army on the way to battle.

Let the people roar: Trump won the night

We all have theories as to how Donald Trump got this far. Mine is that Trump has done well among white high school graduates because he acts the way people think they would act if they were billionaires. If Trump ever doubts himself, he never shows it. He calls people names because he knows he can get away with it. He acts as if having money takes away anguish - that is, he acts quite differently than most rich people I know.

Moderators: Are they referees or fighters?

The latest Gallup poll confirms that the level of trust in the media has reached another new low. The percentage of Republicans who hold a "great deal" or "fair amount" of trust in the press has dropped precipitously to 14 percent, begging the question: Who are the 14 percent who are comfortable with the nonstop tirade against them?

Are we crazy or what?

This should be a 10-point race, minimum. If this were an election governed by any of the rules of politics that all of us have been practicing and teaching and writing books about, this should be the biggest snoozer since 1984, when Germond and Witcover penned their aptly named "Wake Us When It's Over."

Union-made miracle on the Hudson

In their ongoing, all-out assault to crush labor unions, corporate forces have fabricated a cultural myth to undermine popular support for labor: Unions, they insist, are no longer needed. They tell us that in today's entrepreneurial economy, workers must compete with each other, not cooperate.
