"There is a new threat facing the nation’s armed forces, and the Department of Defense is not doing enough about it. The threat? Global climate change."
"A new survey finds that 60% of incoming college football players support unions for college athletes. The horror! Were such unions allowed, our glorious cities would crumble to nothing more than shoddy tents stitched together from tattered remnants of Old Glory; our government officials would be loin-cloth-clad elders gathered in the rubble of an old McDonald’s passing a Talking Stick; our naked children would roam the urban wilderness like howling wolves, their minds as blank as their lost Internet connection. We would be without hope, dreams, or a future."
The Americans with Disabilities Act Turns 24 Today!
Today, one of the most important pieces of legislation for people with disabilities in the US turns 24. Authored by Senator Tom Harkin and signed into law by George H. W. Bush, the law provides many protections for people with disabilities. Primarily, it prevents discrimination based on disability like its ideological predecessor, the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Rights and visibility for the disabled on America still has a long way to go, but this law was a huge step forward for Americans.
