Sweden became the latest European country to shift to the right on Sunday as immigration continues to reshape the continent’s political landscape. A right-wing party with roots in neo-Nazism garnered an estimated 17.6% of ballots cast in Sunday’s election, according to a count of the vast majority of constituencies. It was the best-ever showing for the Sweden Democrats, and it leaves the composition of Sweden’s next government uncertain. ... … [Read more...] about Sweden Moves to the Right in an Election Shaped by Immigration

As we look out across this dance floor, and across the broader spectrum of our culture, it is tempting to conclude we are a nation hopelessly divided. After all, the issues that separate us are very real. However, I refuse to believe we will find solutions to our problems by retreating further into our respective bubbles. So today I ask one thing of you: Whether you lean to the right or the left, please come together and cha-cha real smooth. I know to many of you here I must sound hopelessly naïve in my calls for unity. Our national discourse has grown so contentious that it often seems impossible to take it back now, y’all, and hop even one time in unison with your fellow man. But I, for one, believe now is not the time for more cynicism—no, now it’s time to crisscross, crisscross. Come on, y’all, check it out. It may be a cliché, but surely there is far more that unites us than divides us. I believe the vast majority of Americans still want to stomp, … [Read more...] about Whether You Lean To The Right Or Lean To The Left, Can We All Just Agree To Cha-Cha Real Smooth Now?
I’ve spent a lot of ink and pixels talking about the need for drivers to become more empathetic. Road rage, spot saving, sharing the road with tractor trailers — I’ve often called on people behind the wheel to remember that the drivers in those other vehicles are human beings living with the same stressors you are.In most of those past columns, I’ve directed those messages toward aggressive drivers, urging them to take a deep breath and calm down. But, this week’s column goes out to everyone just floating along on life’s current, too. I’m talking about people who don’t honor the differences between lanes.For those who slept through Driver’s Ed, not all lanes are created equal. Right lanes are intended for slower moving traffic — vehicles entering and exiting highways and those traveling below the speed limit. The left lane is for drivers making left turns or who are traveling at or just above the speed limit and don’t … [Read more...] about Road Warrior: Know your lanes and stick to the right one for you
We’ve talked about the difficulty facing Democratic primary voters who must choose between two candidates for governor holding similar positions on basic issues important to Democrats. That situation is more than doubly difficult in a Republican primary, where the five leading candidates are all trying to run to the right of each other. The basic dynamics of the primary haven’t changed. Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle is the frontrunner, with a commanding 30-point lead in the polls over his closest challenger, but he is still about 10 points shy of winning without a runoff. That leaves the others to fight and claw to see who’s the most conservative and most deserving of forcing their way into a runoff. Several weeks ago, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed a law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks gestations and gives the state the most stringent restrictions in the nation. Secretary of State Brian Kemp promptly backed such a ban in Georgia. “If abortion rights … [Read more...] about Republican Candidates for Governor Run to the Right
