Last night, in an appearance on CNN, New York Times columnist Charles Blow chalked up Black Lives Matter marchers chanting, “Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” as a justified reaction to an American society that is “arrayed against black people.”

2016 Republican Website Wars: The Good, the Bad, and the Merely Functional

On the whole, the candidates’ websites seemed surprisingly timid, even backward, as if the designers were primarily afraid of (a) soaking up too much bandwidth from visitors, and (b) leaving some important scrap of text off the main screen, for fear that visitors would explore no further. These are both very last-generation concerns. Seriously, folks, it’s 2015. A dash of animation, such as Fiorina and Chris Christie offer, will not cause anyone’s computer to chug.

Donald Trump: Candidate for Our Age

The only presidential candidate who understands the importance of celebrity branding to politics is Donald Trump. He is in a word- RELENTLESS. He relentlessly brands himself 24/7. He relentlessly attacks 24/7. He relentlessly sells 24/7. He relentlessly pitches 24/7. And he does it all with RELENTLESS chutzpah. Brilliant.

Exclusive: Chris Christie Campaign Defends Immigration Visa Reform

“At any moment, FedEx can tell you where that package is. It’s on the truck. It’s at the station. It’s on the airplane,” Christie said during a town hall event in New Hampshire. “Yet we let people come to this country with visas, and the minute they come in, we lose track of them.” The idea sent journalists in a tizzy, as some even compared it to the U.S. government internment of Japanese Americans in World War II. The campaign insists that Christie’s comments were more about the principal of using modern technology to solve government problems.

EXCLUSIVE: Businesses Fight Against Seattle’s ‘Discriminatory’ Minimum Wage Law

A three-judge panel for the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments today on the International Franchise Association’s appeal to overturn a U.S. District Court judge’s previous decision that denied a preliminary injunction to halt the application of Seattle’s minimum wage law to franchisees. The Seattle law is drafted so that large businesses with more than 500 employees must pay a minimum wage of $15 per hour by 2017 or 2018. However, smaller employers have more time – until 2021 – to increase the minimum wage.
