House Speaker John Boehner is calling it quits, with plans to relinquish his gavel by the end of October. President Obama spoke kindly of the Speaker, but not so much praise from a lot of fellow Republicans who applauded his exit. Boehner got in a jab of his own by comparing conservative hard liners in his party to biblical false prophets. Well, so much for Republican brotherly love. On the Democratic side, more new emails have been discovered and more contradicting statements from the Clinton camp. Will lack of trustworthiness continue to hurt her in the polls? Two Georgia parents were allegedly drugged and attacked by their 22 and 17 year old sons. The parents forgave their sons stating that their sons just had a “bad moment”.

We have all heard the phrase “they all look alike to me”, a phrase often referring to African Americans. Did this happen to former tennis professional James Blake when a NYPD officer mistook him for another black man suspected of credit card fraud? Scientists believe the phrase “they all look alike to me” may have merit. Decades of research has reportedly revealed that the “other-race effect” is a cognitive phenomenon that makes it harder for people of one race to readily recognize or identify individuals of another race.It is not bias or bigotry, the researchers say, that makes it difficult for people to distinguish between people of another race.

What’s your take? Is this a product of our perceptual experience, bias or bigotry? Do people of other races all look alike to you?

Islamophobia is alive and well in America. Just ask Ben Carson who said that he would not support a Muslim for president  and Ahmed Mohamed, the 14 year old freshman suburban Dallas High School student with a penchant for technology, electronics and engineering. Ahmed was suspended from school, detained and handcuffed after bringing a clock he built to school. Help me to understand, where is the crime? Speaking of America, 23 million viewers watched the second Republican presidential debate last week with the top 11 GOP hopefuls spewing BS for over 3 hours.

Republican Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina are both touting their experience in the business world. While Trump has enjoyed success operating a conglomerate of businesses, he has reportedly filed Chapter 11 several times. Fiorina has been president or CEO of several corporations.  Her performance as CEO of Hewlett-Packard was less than impressive. She was fired as CEO of HP in 2005. Shares of HP fell 45% during her tenure, followed by thousands of layoffs. Neither Trump nor Fiorina have ever held public office.   

What’s your take? Do you think business experience in the absence of political experience is adequate to be president of the United States?

Streaming video by Ustream Live streaming video by Ustream New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton has offered an apology to former tennis professional James Blake after being body slammed, handcuffed and roughed up by NYPD last week. Blake who’s bi-racial isn’t really saying the incident was racially motivated. Until recently, most of us had never heard of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk that preferred jail rather than grant marriage licenses to same sex couples because of religious beliefs. Well, we all know of her now! In addition to capturing major media and political attention, some are comparing her actions to Rosa Parks and Dr. King.

What's Your Take?

Baltimore officials have agreed to a $6.4 million settlement with the family of Freddie Gray. While the wrongful death settlement will require final approval by a city board, it comes as criminal charges are pending against six police officers in Gray’s arrest and death. The mayor has said that the settlement does not “represent any judgment” on the guilt or innocence of the officers.

What’s your take? What impact, if any, do you think the settlement will have on the criminal trials of the six police officers?

What's Your Take?

OxyContin, an extended-release version of the painkiller oxycodone  is a narcotic used to treat moderate to severe pain. The Food and Drug Administration has reportedly approved the use of the drug for children as young as 11 years old. While the drug may provide relief to young cancer patients, there is a concern by some doctors that prescribing OxyContin could put them at risk of addiction.        

What’s your take? Do you think the benefits of OxyContin outweigh the risks to children?
