Frank VanderSloot Statement on 'It's Elementary'

05/04/12 09:06PM

I am a strong supporter of the argument that gay and lesbian people should have the same rights as all other Americans.

I don't believe that sexual concepts – either homosexual or heterosexual - should be introduced in our schools to... read more

We came to Mr. Zuckerman's defense and chastised the talk show for bringing his sexual... read more

We haven't had this low a percentage of working-age Americans actually working or trying to get a job since the early 1980s (chart above). In April alone, more than half a million people gave up, which is scary.Meanwhile, productivity continues to rise while wages stagnate (chart below).  Workers are doing more with less, and often for less... read more

The writer, Peter Berkowitz, was skeptical, but if Obama were sincere about leading in an even handed way, here were seven steps he... read more


About The Rachel Maddow Show

Launched in 2008, “The Rachel Maddow Show” follows the machinations of policy making in America, from local political activism to international diplomacy. Rachel Maddow looks past the distractions of political theater and stunts and focuses on the legislative proposals and policies that shape American life - as well as the people making and influencing those policies and their ultimate outcome, intended or otherwise.
