2020: Year of the Democrats? Maybe Not

Obama in the Rose Garden with Crying Joe Biden U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable.

In the six New England states, Republicans no longer hold a single House seat. Susan Collins of Maine is the last GOP senator. In California, Democrats took the ...

Playing The Waiting Game: Beto Is In No Rush To Decide His 2020 Move

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — If the deep field of potential Democratic presidential contenders is on pins and needles as Beto O’Rourke decides his next move, it could be a long wait. The outgoing Texas congressman’s team says he has no timeline or roadmap for deciding if he’d like to parlay a surprisingly close loss to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz into a White House try. People close to O’Rourke insist he hasn’t expanded staff or lined up consultants even as the interest in him intensifies. They say he’s...

An ex-con sells legal weed, but his shop is a rare success story in state push for social equity

After selling weed on the streets of Oakland since he was 16, Alphonso Blunt was arrested and booked in 2005 for felony marijuana possession.

AK Monthly Recap: November 2018

This month was about…Kenyamerica? It’s hard to define this month as a whole — I spent the first 10 days in Kenya, enjoying the brilliant sunshine, and the final 20 days living a low-key life in the chilly, damp northeast US. That’s how much of my life has been lately. I live a normal life in New York most of the time, then I go on a trip and it’s like I’ve jumped into someone else’s life. It’s not quite as extreme as in 2012, when my broke ass spent a night in the cheapest hostel in London I co...

Former President George HW Bush Dies At 94

HOUSTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94. The World War II hero, who also presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War, died late Friday night, said family spokesman Jim McGrath.
