The ACLU Should End the Charade of Protecting American Civil Liberties

By Larry Keane The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) needs to change its name. At this point, it’s false advertising. IMG: iStock-1245041394 U.S.A. -( The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) needs to change its name. At this point, it’s false advertising. The ACLU recently argued that “anti-Blackness determined the inclusion of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, and has informed the unequal and racist application of gun laws.” That’s plainly arguing that the Sec...

U.S. should offer compassion and care, not more wars

The last week has brought heightened focus on United States military intervention in other countries. Following the assassination of Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise, Claude Joseph, the acting prime minister, requested U.S. military intervention to stabilize conditions in his country. Mayor Francis Suarez of Miami has suggested that U.S. airstrikes might be appropriate against Cuban military targets, to assist the widespread popular demonstrations against Communist Party rule. Meanwhile, the U.S....

America’s inflation threat

When President Biden unveiled a $6 trillion budget at the end of May, economist Larry Summers, who served as U.S. Treasury Secretary under President Clinton and as director of the National Economic Council under President Obama, warned of inflation. “The Fed has had almost no success gently bringing down inflation once an economy has started to overheat,” Summers said in an interview. He said every “significant disinflation” from the 1950s to the 1980s “involved an economy turning to recession.”...

Watch: Every year since 2017, Trump has led his CPAC crowd in chanting "lock her up"

While Trump was campaigning during the 2016 election, he loved whipping his crowd into an anti-Clinton frenzy so they'd chant "Lock her up! Lock her up!" for the unforgivable crime of sending email on a non-government server. But after Trump won, he told his confused devotees that he didn't want to lock her up. — Read the rest

Who’s Gotten Their Copyright Back?

Currently in the United States, an author’s copyright expires 70 years after the author’s death or 95 years after its first publication. But what about when an author of a work grants their exclusive copyright to a publisher or some other partnership? In that case, an author can request that the work’s copyright revert to their sole ownership after 35 years. It’s called reversion, and it doesn’t happen often, because it’s not automatic; there are legal hurdles to jump through to file copyrig...

Utah’s Paved Pathway Nirvana

words by Melissa FieldsWhether you pedal, roller blade, skate board or simply push a stroller, paved pathways occupy that appealing sweet spot between the smoothness of a roadway and the safety of a sidewalk. Though paved pathways first came about in the 1960s, when municipalities and nonprofits began paving over abandoned railroad tracks, paved paths now span more than 24,000 miles across the United States, including the dozens of paved paths here in Utah. While the following list is not exhaus...

The US Isn’t Ready for Another Pandemic

Olga Khazan writing for The Atlantic: After an inept coronavirus response, will the United States do better when the next pandemic strikes? Experts generally agree that America learned from the past year, and that the next public-health crisis won’t be quite as bewildering. But America’s pandemic preparedness still has major gaps, some of which are too big for any one administration to fix. In recent weeks, I’ve called back many of the experts I interviewed over the past 18 months about masks, ...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Review: Chris Pratt Fights for the Future in a Surprisingly Fun Blast From the Past

There’s a brand of cheesy, cornball, slightly trashy sci-fi blockbuster from the ’90s that died with the Clinton years as movies gave way to Bush-era cynicism (and Michael Bay-driven cacophony). You know the type: Independence Day and Volcano, movies that revolved around a misfit band of heroes and which naively believed a divided world could be united by a really good speech from Bill Pullman. Maybe they’re not high art, but they’re high emotion and high stakes — and that’s good enough for a f...
