Who is more out of touch: Democrats or Republicans?

House Speaker Paul Ryan became the center of ridicule after he deleted a tweet that shared a story about a secretary who received a $1.50 paycheck boost. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi fired back at Ryan, calling the $1.50 pay increase "crumbs." But many argue the $1,000 bonuses some are receiving under the new tax plan hardly qualify as "crumbs" and Pelosi is out of touch with the average Ame…

Would you call yourself a feminist?

"Feminist" is a word that gets people worked up, but in the #MeToo era, some say we need it more than ever.

Would ending net neutrality actually be good for the Internet?

After the FCC announced it would eliminate the net neutrality rules put in place by the Obama administration, open internet activists expressed concern and demanded the internet should remain open to everyone. Since the Internet is as essential as phone lines or power, it should be regulated like an utility.
