Many US rural regions suffer from industrial job losses. Technological advances open up new opportunities for them. The Berkshires provide a case study.
The UN Security Council just condemned Israel for continuing to build settlements in “Palestinian territory.” It sounds like a reasonable resolution to me. Why is Obama getting such political backlash for abstaining?
It is an understatement to say the primaries and the election of Donald Trump have resulted in political polarization. I argue that cable news and social media have contributed this and in turn to the weakening of the American political process.
Trump now has an “all-Republican” Congress. It is time for them to start governing. It won’t be easy.
It is interesting to speculate on what Trump will do. And how about a strategy for the Democratic Party? Conflicting views are presented.
