How False Media Equivalency is Benefiting Trump

Back in early May, I predicted that the mainstream media's "objectivity" rituals would kick in as autumn neared, "balancing" the two major candidates according to the timeworn rules of "on of the one hand, on the other hand," thus leaving the impression that Hillary Clinton (seasoned and experienced, whatever her flaws) and Donald Trump (manifestly unfit, by dint of his temperament and ignorance) can somehow be equated.

Dad's friend Bill

These days it seems the only friends you have are the ones you meet through your kids. Adults connect with your kid's teams, your kid's schools. It didn't used to be that way. A long time ago the circle of friends for adults had zero to do with their children. There were no such things as helicopter parents, for instance. Sports and practices were a footnote to life.

Employee ownership

Buster goes for a drive

A local man, Buster Butts, is one of the hardest workers I know. He works at a computer most of the day which demands heavy use of his eyes. Until just lately, I considered Buster to be almost blind. In fact, the cataracts on his eyes were so bad, that Buster had to lean over and almost place his nose on the computer screen to see what he was doing.

Trump Camp’s Latest Move is to Bash Catholics

They told me not to overreact. Read new Donald Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon's comments "in context," they said. And, after all, Christine, you're an immigration lawyer, you have a tendency to blow these things out of proportion. Chill, lady. Go say a rosary, and call us in the morning.

The Right Lessons from Obamacare’s Meltdown

The decision of several major insurance companies to cut their losses and withdraw from the Obamacare exchanges, combined with the failure of 70 percent of Obamacare's health insurance "co-ops, " will leave one in six Obamacare enrollees with only one health insurance option. If Obamacare continues on its current track, most of America may resemble Pinal County, Arizona, where no one can obtain private health insurance. Those lucky enough to obtain insurance will face ever-increasing premiums and a declining choice of providers.
