Dwelling on half-full glasses

Like many people, I have a tendency to spend more time thinking about what's wrong than what's right, what's missing rather than what is there, what I don't have instead of what I do.

Mitch and Boehner in Dreamland

Let's see – Obama won both the popular vote and the electoral collage tally. Democrats didn't just add to their senate majority, but added such feisty, progressive new senators as Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, and Mazie Hirono. Even in the House, Dems won the national vote and gained seven seats. Plus, progressives scored victories coast to coast on ballot initiatives.

Whose tax dollars are they?

A key question has raged in California for more than one year, ever since Gov. Jerry Brown first proposed two of his key tactics in the ongoing battle against seemingly perpetual state budget deficits.

An officer and a gentleman

Something very wrong has just gone down. It's played out so much like a soap opera, for those following the twists and turns of who sent whom a shirtless photo, but at its core, it is very simple. America has just lost the much-needed services of one of the most brilliant military leaders of our time because he had an affair with the woman who wrote his biography.

About that monolithic Black vote

In 13 wards in Philadelphia, reports the Inquirer, President Barack Obama received 99 percent of the vote! A local Democratic ward leader outlined the strategy: "In this election, you had to point out to people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man."

Hiring hypocrisy of the NY Times

Mark Thompson, a former director-general of the British Broadcasting Corporation, began his new job Monday as president and CEO of The New York Times. The lack of embarrassment was remarkable. Thompson claimed he was the worst kind of ignorant buffoon, knowing nothing about the massive sex-abuse scandal - and then its censorship - that's rocking the BBC.

Make California count again

Back in 1948, when most of America woke up the day after the presidential election and learned to its surprise that Harry Truman had defeated Thomas Dewey, California counted. It was only because of this state's late-reporting vote that Truman won out.

Romney has done enough for GOP

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told MSNBC's Chris Matthews he thinks that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016 and that "he will be the next president of the United States." The former Massachusetts governor lost the GOP primary in 2008 and then the general election in 2012. What would his 2016 slogan be, "the third time's a charm"?

Obama can’t work with others

In January, President Barack Obama outlined his strategy for 2014. "I've got a pen, and I've got a phone," he said. The president planned on using his pen to sign executive and administrative orders and his phone to call outside groups - not Congress - to rally behind his pet programs.

Americans lose, immigrants gain

American-born workers have had a net loss in jobs since 2000, while all of the job growth since then has gone to immigrants, according to a remarkable new study by the Center for Immigration Studies. This revelation comes as some Republican politicians continue to flirt with amnesty and the disastrous proposal of so-called immigration reform.

Great Pacific garbage patch hoax

A new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences could mean bad news for environmental doomsayers. Forget all those warnings about the million tons of plastic debris floating in the ocean. Ignore the photos that you think show the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Andres Cozar of the University of Cadiz in Spain is the man who once extrapolated the 1 million-ton estimate. Since then, however, he has led research that collected samples at 141 ocean sites. Cozar's new estimate: Between 7,000 and 35,000 tons of plastic are floating in the ocean.

Give business chance to comply with ADA

Recently the towns of Manteca, Ripon and Tracy among others have seen a sharp rise in the number of lawsuits from out of town lawyers targeting local businesses for allegedly violating portions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Many of these are small, family owned businesses who are ill equipped to afford the vast legal fees to fight a professional trial lawyer and have been forced to shut down. It is a problem that has been growing for years, especially here in the Valley and most acutely in minority and immigrant communities where lawyers target those who learned English ...

Obama’s anti-media tantrums

President Barack Obama treats the press like a spoiled child treats his parents. Despite the pampering, he just keeps complaining about them until he gets his way. As America tires of his inflated sense of self-importance while the economy limps and his foreign policy crumbles, Obama travels around the country complaining that the mean old media aren't complimentary enough.

Free to choose vs. cost-free access

How did women get birth control before President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act? Before Obamacare, a woman could go to a doctor and get birth control. She often had to pay or make a copayment for contraception. But in the 2014 political lexicon, that means she had no access.

Ok. President Obama decreed that federal workers can extend their lunch hours by an hour to watch the U.S. play in the World Cup. Big deal. The president of Costa Rica gave all workers a full day off to watch their team.

Justices & their cellphones

Since the nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court went up in flames back in 1987, every appointee to the court has understood that when asked at confirmation hearings about how your personal experiences might affect your decisions, the right answer is "balls and strikes." Just an umpire, they all say, and even though no one - on the left or the right - believes this to be true, we all understand the necessity of the charade.

Kaiser’s Modesto, Manteca hospitals operate as one to provide best care

At Kaiser Permanente, we understand the community sentiment that led to the Manteca City Council's June 3 adoption of a non-binding resolution regarding the medical services offered at our Manteca Medical Center. Faced with a question about the operation of an important hometown institution, it's only natural to want that institution to have all services.
