WASHINGTON — Pregnant women, mothers and children who get federal assistance with their grocery bills will now be able to buy more whole-grain foods, yogurt, fish, fruits and vegetables.

When I was studying to be a rabbi, I spent several years doing volunteer service work in India, Thailand, El Salvador, Ghana, and many other countries. During that time, I heard many wrenching stories from women who had been the victims of violence. They told me they felt powerless, vulnerable, and scared.
Rejecting last minute pleas from supporters, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed late Wednesday controversial legislation billed as protecting religious freedom.
The decision by Republican lawmakers approve a decision on a measure billed as promoting religious freedom is forcing Gov. Jan Brewer to choose between her desire to promote the state's economy and her own strong religious beliefs.
It's the dirty work of home life: dusting the shelves, mopping the floors and doing the laundry, load after load. Yet asking kids to help has gotten harder for some parents, caught up in the blur of today's competitive, time-pressed, child-focused world.
“A little geography lesson — two hemispheres, both exhibiting extreme weather and temperatures. While we are having extremely cold temperatures this winter, Australia has had record breaking heat. Yes, global warming means extreme weather in ALL seasons.”
Republican standards for immigration reform would benefit businesses
Unable to block expansion of Medicaid in Arizona, Republican legislators are now seeking to impose new restrictions on who can get care, and for how long.
Oh no, here we go again. Arizona Republicans will be asked again this year to “hold our noses” and vote for another “centrist, compassionate” (could that possibly mean R.I.N.O.) Republican. The last time it was for Mitt “Hundreds of Millions of Family Trust Fund Dollars squirrel-awayed in so-called ‘off-shore Caribbean Island Nations’ Romney.”
Jackie Evancho, a 13-year-old classical crossover star who debuted on the national stage on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” seems to only get bigger and better with age.
Tom Patterson’s column, “Marriage gap contributes to inequality,” seems to leave out the harsh realities of inequality in America. Tens of millions of Americans struggle to survive economically, while the wealthiest people are doing very well and corporate profits are at an all time high. In fact, wealth and income inequality is greater today than at any time before the great depression. One family now owns more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of Americans. In recent years 95 percent of all new income has gone to the top 1 percent. How can Mr. Patterson say the “key to the whole deal, the most basic explanation of what’s going on is the marriage gap?” Nations will not survive when so few have so much and so many have so little. It has nothing to do with a “marriage gap.”
The Little Sisters of the Poor, who operate a nonprofit hospice and nursing home, as a matter of conscience don’t want to be in the position of providing abortifacients and contraceptives under Obamacare, as most employers are required to do.
Everyone has done a list of the Top 10 events of the past year.
President Obama, switching the subject from Obamacare, recently gave a speech describing income inequality as the most significant issue of our time. Advancing inequality “is what drives me”, he said, because it “poses a fundamental threat to American prosperity”.
“The mother of the 14-year-old murdered and left in a dumpster brought this scumbag convict into her family’s life. She should be charged with child neglect and as an accomplice to murder.”
“If President Obama wants to score points with Republicans and avoid another debt crisis, stop borrowing money from China and borrow from the Cayman Islands. That way most lawmakers could draw a paycheck and interest from the American people. They could call it The Grand Cayman Bargain. I would sleep better knowing American tax dollars went to an American politician to buy cocaine than a communist from China to buy American jobs.”
President Obama will get a break from “Obamacare” when he pardons the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Each of us can also set aside our cares by pardoning a turkey and choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance — one that gives thanks for our good fortune, health, and happiness with a life-affirming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits, and grains.
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
While viewing George and Laura Bush being interviewed on Jay Leno last eve I was reminded, we once had Presidents and First Ladies with class. It was refreshing to recall how they represented our country around the world, with respect and dignity. Two people who can enjoy a joke and face up to negative press.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
I’ve been watching the fight over the Affordable Care Act and how some are stopping at nothing to shut it down before giving it a chance to work.
