RoadEquality California on the Boy Scouts and judges: "It may seem like common sense that the California Supreme Court — our state’s foremost judicial body — would ban judges from belonging to groups that discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion and sexual orientation.

It did this specifically to accommodate judges who serve as troop leaders in Boy Scouts of America."

RoadThe New Yorker compares France's La Manif Pour Tous and the U.S. Tea Party: "What is similar to the Tea Party is that La Manif Pour Tous emerged outside the structure of the traditional French parties—both the Gaullist U.M.P. and the far-right National Front of Marine Le Pen. As with the Tea Party, its supporters claim to represent a silent majority that is not being heard by the élites in the capital. But the Tea Party turned quickly to electoral politics, with what can be seen as either an accession to or a partial takeover of the Republican Party. “La Manif Pour Tous has gone out of its way to keep its distance from both the U.M.P. and the National Front,” Tartakowsky said. It also rejects being labelled as on the right."

  2. I'm an admirer of Hillary but at this point, if you're appearing unsure of running to your inner circle, you're going also appear unsure to voters in 2.5 years.

  3. Disappointed with The Giver trailer. The acting looks on point, but the design stand point didn't need to be identical to The Hunger Games.

  4. I don't think Hillary is unsure about running at all. This is all part of the cat and mouse game of politics. Right now she can essentially campaign without campaigning. Republicans are having to focus on other races at this point in time, allowing her to essentially run for president months/years before anyone else, and staying just enough in the spotlight to keep up a positive image. I'm sure her inner-circle "tells" her to not run all the time. Keeps the campaign humble.

  5. Hillary is by far the clear front runner so she'll run. The GOP has no one comparable.
