* Many articles refer to people with criminal records as "ex-offenders" or "offenders". While we appreciate all the positive press these issues receive, we are working to use other terms to describe our clients that do not carry such negative connotations. These terms include "people with criminal records" or "people reentering society".

Marco Rubio gave a major foreign policy address at the Brookings Institution Wednesday, and near the end of his remarks, the Florida senator -- who has mocked President Obama on multiple occasions for using a teleprompter -- had to pause after accidentally misplacing the last page. And that's only the least of his problems. READ MORE

John Raese is feeling persecuted.

Raese, a West Virginia businessman running for the U.S. Senate, declared in a recent speech that he doesn't want the government telling him what to do "because I'm an American." Specifically, he lamented that he is required to place a "huge sticker" on his buildings declaring them smoke-free environments.

"Remember Hitler used to put Star of David on everybody's lapel, remember that? Same thing," he said. READ MORE

Politicians are big, fat liars. It's a belief so deeply ingrained in American culture that we're taught to revere George Washington as the one-of-a-kind exception who narced himself out for chopping down a cherry tree, and even that story is completely made up. But it's not necessarily true that politicians produce lies the way plants produce oxygen. READ MORE

Rep. Hansen Clarke: Trillion Dollar Crisis: The Case for Student Loan Forgiveness
For at least a century, this country has run on an implied social contract that says "if you study hard and work hard, you'll have a steady middle-class income and a stable career." Let's reinstate that contract and put student borrowers back on higher ground.
