Bring Us More Dick Cheney…and Liz

Dick and Liz Cheney

Tina Dupuy: It looks like liberals taking a cue from Disney’s iconic villain revival, Maleficent, dug up Dick Cheney and nepotism poster child Liz Cheney to illuminate the Dark Side of our post-9/11 world.

My Evergreen Column About the Latest Mass Shooting

Mass Shooting

Tina Dupuy: Weapon manufacturers in spite of the shock and horror at fill-in-the-blank say they believe in the Second Amendment as an absolute god-given right of every American. They ignore/deny/edit out the “well-regulated” part of the Amendment.

E-Regulating E-Cigarettes

Regulating E-Cigarettes

Tina Dupuy: E-cigarettes are technically a “nicotine delivery device” derived from tobacco. For all intents and purposes—it’s tobacco. They should have to abide by the same laws as other tobacco products.

Medi-Cal Estate Recovery Act

Tina Dupuy: During the last five years of the national debate around health care reform, it’s been an all-or-nothing proposition. Either you hate Obamacare and cite it in your requiem for the republic. Or you defend it whole cloth with no caveats.

A Truce on Moral Superiority

Tina Dupuy: If homosexuality ceased to be considered a sin and all Americans were judged by the content of their character instead of whom they love, it’d be hard for Republicans to find people to be morally superior to.
