Oprah For President, 2020

image courtesy Wikicommons Attention Democrats. If you want to win in 2020, run Oprah.
Run Jon Stewart.
Run the Oprah/Stewart ticket or the Stewart/Oprah ticket.
You’ll sweep the country. Politics is dead.
Politicians are dead.
This is what Donald Trump has taught us.
Politicians are boring.
(And they are. Anyone really want to have dinner with Mitt Romney? Seriously?) We are now the TV nation.
And no wonder. We all spend 5 hours a day, every day, watching TV.
And what do we watch?
It isn’t C-Span. This is who we are. So when Donald Trump decided to run for President, he didn’t run a ‘normal’ campaign (that’s what everyone said, didn’t they? Not ‘normal’?) Nope. He ran a Reality TV Show. Well, why not? That’s what he knows how to do. Not only does he know how to do it, he knows how to do it really well. The Apprentice is a top rated Reality TV Show for 10 years. Everyone else was running C-Span. Policy Wonk TV. The Apprentice gets 21 million viewers, C-Span gets, ready?… 19,550 viewers in an average hour. Do you see a difference here? Donald Trump ‘gets’ what America likes, and more importantly, he delivers what they like. And what they like is Reality TV….

Georgia’s Criminal Justice Overhaul Demonstrates Widespread Positive Effects

By Christopher Zoukis In the last five years, Georgia has been successful in making badly needed, sweeping changes to its criminal justice system under the direction of Republican Governor Nathan Deal. The state has come a long way from where stood in 2009, when a Pew Research Center study indicated that one in 13 citizens were involved in the prison system in some capacity — whether incarcerated or on probation. That was the highest per-capita prison system in the country — well above the nation’s already-high rate of one in 31 adults. Recidivism rates were 30 percent for adults, and 65 percent for juveniles. As well, 70 percent of the state’s prisoners lacked a high school diploma. State officials were determined to change these statistics, and Georgia is now a model of successful criminal justice reform. Reform initiatives have been wide reaching, collaborative, and achieved through the support of many interagency programs. They cover juvenile offenses, address issues with the “school-to-prison pipeline,” and include programs for the currently incarcerated, and involved the implementation of much-needed re-entry programs. For juveniles, the reforms focus on reducing sentencing rates, diverting charges for offenses such as truancy and breaking curfew, seeking instead to address root issues of…

5 Reasons Why It’s Hard To Go Home For The Holidays

For a lot of people going home for the holidays is exciting, and filled with nothing but cheer and good times. However, for many of us, going home for the holidays, especially right now, is anything but easy and fun. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of those families that get together, and it’s just light, relaxing, and easy. It sounds incredible. It’s just not that way for many of us, and this is why. 1. We know more. We all hear from our parents that we’ll understand when we’re older, and the thing is they’re right. We will understand more and more as we mature, but what so many parents have a hard time grasping, is that we’re adults now. Yes, we haven’t lived the same amount of technical years as them, but we have lived a lot of life up until this point. We’re more exposed to the world than they were. Many of us have higher levels of education than our parents, and we’ve seen some real shit on a global level already. Add to the fact that many of us live in cities that are diverse; we’re connected with people from around the world; and we’re…
