Salon's 'Big Lie' About Guns and Mental Illness

I'm strongly in favor of keeping the mentally ill away from firearms and I'm coming around to approving any policy that keeps crazy 'journalists' away from a keyboard, too. Case in point is Salon.com writer Arthur Chu. His rant titled "It's not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males" makes Alex Jones sound like Dr. Phil.

Why Spy on France?

According to WikiLeaks, the United States National Security Agency spied on French presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande, reports Reuters. I contacted my French informant, Pierre Le Paint, to learn why.

A Ray of Hope in the Confederacy of Dunces

In the annals of political flip flops - or "evolutions," if you prefer - none have arguably rivaled the breathtaking triple back flip executed late Monday by the governor of South Carolina.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage. Taking the field with the nation's best quickly advanced the understanding that the youth from a rural community in Central Kansas could compete with - and conquer – champions from every corner.

California’s Water Woes Hit Home

Pundits sizing up the drought have said that water is the new oil. They're wrong, of course. Oil supplies merely send nations to war, while the water shortage pits neighbors against each other.

Time for the South to Surrender

Reasonable people have suggested that removing Confederate flags from capitols, symbols from license plates, and products from Walmart shelves is mere symbolism, but it's more than that. By recognizing that flying the Confederate flag is a continuation of a treasonous act motivated by racial hatred, we can end what amounts to a 150-year-long Civil War re-enactment and move the South into what Abraham Lincoln called its "proper practical relation" to the rest of the county.

Whatever Happened to Common Sense Regarding Climate Change?

Fear mongering is quite lucrative in what seems to be a burgeoning "climate change industrial complex," where certain people benefit monetarily or politically in their promotion of global catastrophic risk due to catastrophic global warming.

How to Produce Your Own Texas Miracle

Rick Perry's running for president again, which means we have to endure a bunch of talk about what he calls the "Texas Model." The rest of us call this the "Texas Miracle," or the economic special sauce of low taxes, low regulation, low spending, and tort reform that he says created boom times in Texas while the rest of the country struggled. Hire me, goes his logic, and I'll make sure someone hires you. Being president is good work if you can get it.

Red Pope, Green Pope

He gets under their skin like termites in a boathouse. Drives them crazier than Hillary Clinton and Yoko Ono dancing on a gay pride parade float. He's the itch you can't scratch. The thorn in the palm of their paw. The 3-inch scratch on their favorite Ted Nugent album. I'm talking about that hot new Catholic sensation, Pope Frankie.

Should I buy a card?

Masters champion Jordan Spieth won the U.S. Open in a thrilling manner at Chambers Bay Golf Club. Afterwards he wished everyone a Happy Father's Day, which came off as a bit insensitive to people in Los Angeles. Father's Day is the most confusing day of the year for Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
