In Congress, Legislation and Scandals Vie for Attention | Moderation in All Things.... | Scoop.it
Lawmakers will return to the Capitol on Monday from a weeklong recess, facing a critical juncture on immigration legislation and controversies with the I.R.S. and Justice Department.
Susan Kelly-Roatche's insight:

I see this pattern of deception, Congress-wide, as very concerning.  When you look at the I.R.S., & you look at the Benghazi issue, & you look at the A.P. issue,  I think the trouble here isn’t even the waste of time & resources by Congress on the individual specific scandals alone anymore. It’s the pattern of their activity over the past several years coupled with their lack of forwarding any effective legislation to put our citizens back to work....

Reformish Conservatives

Reformish Conservatives | Moderation in All Things.... | Scoop.it

By Ryan Cooper

 

There are two striking facts about the apparent glasnost that has broken out among Republicans since their shocking (to them) November election losses. The first is how timid the rethinking has been so far. There is much talk, in the Republican National Committee’s recent “autopsy” report and elsewhere, of the need to change the party’s “messaging,” but little about the need to change the policies behind the messaging. The second striking fact is how long it’s taken just to get this far. The GOP failed to win a majority of votes in five of the last six presidential elections. Only now is the party beginning to wonder out loud if maybe its doctrinaire conservative approach to politics isn’t working.

 

The Democratic Party’s equivalent period of soul searching played out quite differently. As early as the late 1970s, a major rethinking of traditional liberal ideas and policies about crime, welfare, entitlement programs, and much more was under way at magazines like the Washington Monthly and the New Republic—this at a time when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. In 1984, only four years after Ronald Reagan’s first presidential win, reformist Democrats had their own popular primary candidate, Gary Hart. In 1985, the centrist-reform Democratic Leadership Council was founded. By 1988, two charter members of the DLC, Al Gore and Richard Gephardt, were running for president. By 1992, a former DLC chairman, Bill Clinton, won the office.  MORE

Beyond ƒacebook....

"The strength of those who have a voice, to use their voices to lead forward is critical.  The strength of those who have been enabled with learning to use their knowledge to help others is imperative.  The strength of those who refuse to let go of their faith, hope, humanity, integrity and courage is our hope for a better future."

Great launchpad to a discussion; but it is still disingenuous to woman to expect a hierarchical system to change, especially in this economy, without the punitive measure which equality legislation effects....  These Republican woman do not help themselves or their party here at all....

U.S. Census: Rationalizing Race | Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations

U.S. Census: Rationalizing Race | Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations | Moderation in All Things.... | Scoop.it

This event was recorded live at Brooklyn Historical Society on April 18, 2013 as part of the Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations public programming series. 

 

People living in the U.S. are asked to fill out the Census forms every 10 years, and for many people it has not always been easy to accurately represent our racial and ethnic identities using the Census' racial and ethnic categories. 

 

For example, prior to the year 2000, multiracial people could only check one box in the Race category of the U.S. Census. Now, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, multiracial Americans are the fastest growing demographic group.

 

Thinking towards the 2020 U.S. Census, people are asking: Does Latino heritage represent race or ethnicity?  How do people of Middle Eastern and Arab heritage self-identify according these racial categories?

 

This discussion about the history of racial and ethnic categories and all there is to learn from the U.S. Census was moderated by Eric Hamako, doctoral candidate in Social Justice Education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst: From Nicholas A. Jones, chief of the U.S. Census Bureau's Racial Statistics Branch, we hear about exciting new developments for the 2020 census form.Josh Begley, creator of Racebox.org, explains why he scanned U.S. Census forms from 1790 - 2010 to make them available online.Data vizualization artist, Jonathan Soma, creator of A Handsome Atlas gives us a look into what Americans in the 19th century were interested in counting and measuring.

 

And sociologist Ann Morning, author of The Nature of Race: How Scientists Think and Teach about Human Difference, talks about how the U.S. Census categories change over time and what that says about our uses for this demographic data: whether defining who is to be accorded rights of full citizenship and who is to be excluded; or monitoring inequalities and imbalances in an effort toward equity.
