A newlywed couple are willing to give up their dream of starting a family in order to help save the planet. Ella Starling, 27, and her husband Jackson, 29, are committed environmental activists and had always planned to have children together. But the couple fear that the “planet is not right for a baby” and after extensively researching the risks that come hand-in-hand with climate change, have drawn to the conclusion that bringing a child into the world would be “unfeasible” right now. “The decision to not have children hurts, but I am not convinced the future of our planet

An employee of mine and her husband made the same choice twenty years ago for different reasons albeit equally foolish/selfish. They thought being close to nieces and nephews would suffice. Five years ago and now post-menopausal she was told by her husband he kinda regretted their decision. I think she is still on prozac.

Fifty years ago scores of baby boomers were making the same pledge...except overpopulation was the reason given. Nothing new here. I chose not to procreate because I didn't want children and I would have made a terrible parent. At least I didn't feel the need to hide behind some bogus cause. Righteousness, thou art a fickle hypocrite.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is in full-blown turmoil. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) was set to make an unplanned trip to Washington from her district Monday amid an outcry from top black and Latino lawmakers over a lack of diversity in the campaign arm's senior management ranks. (Snip) POLITICO reported last week that black and Hispanic lawmakers are furious with Bustos’ stewardship of the campaign arm. They say the upper echelon of the DCCC is bereft of diversity, and it is not doing enough to reach Latino voters and hire consultants of color. In addition, several

WASHINGTON — House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., defended the House Democratic leadership's cautious approach toward launching impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, saying that charges destined to be nullified by the GOP-controlled Senate could set an unwelcome precedent. In an exclusive interview with "Meet the Press," Schiff said “there is great weight” to the argument that impeaching Trump is an imperative in order to take a stand that the allegations he’s accused of — mainly, obstruction of justice — cannot be tolerated by Congress. But he said a failed impeachment fight could end up sending the wrong message.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was on his third campaign swing through New Hampshire earlier this month when he spoke at the state's annual Young Democrats barbecue in Portsmouth. It was an opportunity for the 76-year-old Democratic presidential candidate to connect with young voters — a key bloc pushing the party to the left with its embrace of sweeping policy reforms like the Green New Deal. But instead of addressing economic inequality or how to tame the spiraling costs of a college education, Biden focused much of his energy tearing into President Donald Trump. He chided Trump for referring to himself

A new POLITICO /Morning Consult poll, conducted immediately after former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony, shows little impact on support for impeaching President Donald Trump, with a plurality of voters still opposed to beginning proceedings that could result in Trump’s removal from office. Only 37 percent of voters say Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, according to the poll, which was conducted Thursday. More voters, 46 percent, say Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings. Sixteen percent of voters are undecided. “Robert Mueller’s testimony did little to change public opinion around impeachment," said Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s vice president

The answer is almost certainly … Robert Mueller. But that doesn’t make for a good conspiracy theory, which Ted Lieu clearly wants to foment. Instead of acknowledging that Mueller returned to the explanation in his report about the potential for charging Donald Trump with obstruction, Lieu thinks someone “got to him” to steal the win that Lieu got during his examination of the special counsel: (Tweet) This is tinfoil-hat territory, not entirely an unfamiliar landscape for Lieu, for at least two reasons. First, Lieu himself misstated Mueller’s position when he asked for Mueller’s response. Despite the report being very clear
