Security is one of the last bastions of male dominance with the main focus being intelligence, military operations and law enforcement.

Chris Busby is the vice president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Houston. Recently he made the decision to run for a Precinct Committee Person (PCP) vacancy in the Harris County Republican Party. He was confident that he would be given the position, but that's not what happened.
We have a lot more to do. Nevertheless, we must also acknowledge Congress for its efforts on behalf of HFFI, significant actions that have potential to provide healthy food access and economic development to communities sorely in need of both.
On the face of it, the Tea Party seems autonomous and even a thorn in the side of the GOP. But that façade masks the real truth about the Tea Party, which is that ultimately it is less a political organization than a contract killer working for the Republicans.
At this rate, if I want to remain comfortably single without the pressures of a looming marriage proposal, I'll have to move to one of those states. Next time I'm on Craigslist, I'm going have to forego the "Men Seeking Men" section so that I can peruse apartments in Biloxi.
It's hard to argue cost-savings and disease reduction to a moralistic audience, and in many parts of the country, it's no use even trying. For the time being, some states might want to consider alternative means to syringe access and disease reduction
Christians have not always been such enemies of science. Aside from the occasional embarrassment, science often thrived in explicitly Christian settings. This is the heritage that Christians must reclaim and reassert.
In 2007 and 2008, its first two years of existence, NOM never bothered to file any tax returns with the IRS. Each subsequent year, NOM has either been late or filed at least two extensions on its tax returns. This is illegal if you are a 501(c)(3) or a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization like NOM.
As a consummate industry insider and elite rainmaker, it's really no surprise that Wheeler is getting this job. More surprising perhaps is that so many people with public interest bona fides seem to think he's such a good choice.
Remember the video of the guy in the "pimp costume" who got advice from ACORN employees on how to run his prostitution ring? Turns out...
Can we create an equally effective systematic giving culture among the nonreligious? Without the church absorbing the lion's share, I could make an even bigger impact on genuine human need than I did when I was feeding that shiny pl...
It's 2023 -- and this is America 10 years after the first across-the-board federal budget cuts known as sequestration went into effect.
The twist of the latest CIA cash scandal is not the CIA is handing over wads of U.S. bills to a corrupt president. It is that the CIA has continued to hand over cash for so long, which is not merely unethical but now antithetical to the U.S. government's stated policy goals.
It has been a full five years since banks crashed the economy and more than a year since President Obama announced a special task force to investigate big bank crimes. Ever since, homeowners and community members have been fighting for fair and deserved relief and justice.
Senator Harry Reid has hinted that he might in the next few days use the nuclear option to secure the confirmation of Richard Cordray as Director of the CFPB.
Cutting SNAP is precisely the wrong prescription for our children and the nation's economic recovery. The notion that SNAP benefits are an overly generous handout could not be further from the truth.
The opportunity to reunite their families should be extended to all immigrant families, including LGBT families. It is the just and right thing to do. It is the humane thing to do. It is what we must do.
What do a zombie, handcuffs, a steamroller and a legislative luge run for job-killing trade agreements all have in common? They're all apt metaphors of...
Is Barack Obama our nation's second "Teflon President"? The question has occurred to me before, but it became impossible to ignore after the last week...
For all the numbers bouncing around the immigration reform debate, the most relevant number is 27 percent. That's the share of Gov Romney's Latino vote and that's the reason this much needed advance in public policy might just make it over the legislative goal line.
