The Lingering Problem of Race Relations

Race relations have returned to the forefront of our national discussion over the last several years. Unless one refers to illegal immigration, relations in question almost always pertain to blacks and whites.

Time for Sensible Background Checks

In the wake of the recent homicidal shooting rampage at an Oregon community college, I'm forced to come to the conclusion that it is high time for common sense national background checks for journalists.

Take Away Our Guns, Obama? Hell No!

We hear you loud and clear, President Obama. Only a person with a cold heart would blame innocent people and suggest taking their guns away after a crazy, militant atheist who probably cheered when your party booed God at their convention goes on a shooting spree at a college in Oregon.

Clintons Remain Lucky to Have Such Hapless Enemies

In Washington, every so often, a politician will stray from the standard spin and utter an accidental truth. On Fox News the other night, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy did so in spectacular fashion, momentarily forgetting that the GOP's endless Benghazi probe (a probe that's now longer in duration than the 1970s Watergate probe) is supposed to be spun as a search for truth, justice and the American way. Instead, he let slip a burst of candor. And how refreshing it was to hear it.

Protecting School Kids

Face it. Every school in America should have a uniformed police officer on duty whenever school is in session. If smaller communities can't afford it, a federal program should be established to help. And, yes, these cops should have guns.

The Increasingly Likable Donald Trump

Donald Trump - America's loveable bull in a china shop - was an eagerly anticipated speaker at the 2015 Values Voter Summit, a conference that brings hundreds of evangelical activists to the nation's capital. Think of the summit as the Christian answer to Burning Man, without the gratuitous sex, drug use and an important reversal in which the goal is to avoid burning.

Congress and the Fed Refuse to Learn From Their Mistakes

This month marks the seventh anniversary of the bursting of the housing bubble and the subsequent economic meltdown. The mood in Congress following the meltdown resembled the panicked atmosphere that followed the September 11th attacks. As was the case after September 11th, Congress rushed to pass hastily written legislation that, instead of dealing with the real causes of the crisis, simply gave the government more power.

American Politics: Disagreeing to Agree

According to a Pew Research Center poll in 2010, nearly 123 million Americans (41 percent) believe the Rapture will happen before 2050. I bring this up because the first supermoon lunar eclipse in 30 years will happen on Sunday, September 27, 2015. If you're reading this column after then, it's safe to assume it wasn't the end of the world. Also, if you're reading this column before then, well, it's also safe to assume the moon appearing weird to us in the night sky is more of a sign of our lack of perspective than ...
