Millionaires On A Food Stamp Diet?

If you're a follower of the Huffington Post, you've probably read about Panera Bread founder and CEO Ron Shaich and his week-long commitment to spend no more than $4.50 a day on food, thus spotlighting the plight of the 49 million Americans on food stamps.

Voters’ Message: Consequences for Sex Scandals

So much for voters being poised to show that they don't care about sex scandals anymore.

California and Texas Agree on Testing

California and Texas are the Red Sox and Yankees of interstate rivalries. The biggest blue state and the big, bad red state love to hate each other, but they are fighting on the same side against the expensive and useless burden of over-testing. Unfortunately, the Obama administration has made it clear that the testing will continue until the scores improve, even when they already have improved or they tell us nothing.

Health Really Is Everything

His neck and underarms were swollen. His skin itched, particularly on his arms. Sleeping at night was impossible.

The World’s Policeman Stops for a Donut

Well, this is odd. The heck with an exit strategy. We can't even work out an admittance maneuver. The automatic door-opener that proved so reliable for presidents past has short-circuited and keeps slamming shut whenever Barack Obama tries to enter the war store with his empty shopping cart.

Guess Where Those Chemical Weapons Came From, Mr. President

On September 11, 2001, I wrote a column entitled "Now We Know How Israel Feels." Now, 12 years later, with a community organizer in the White House who has no idea about the proper use of America's military might, who believes our only real ally in the Middle East, Israel, is the cause of all the trouble there, and who opposed pursuing our enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan, I'm not sure we do.

Political opportunism on Syria

There is a danger in being as glib as Sen. Ted Cruz, the winner of several national debating awards in college. He has utilized his considerable rhetorical skills to put himself in the 2016 discussion. But by both politicizing and trivializing the question of whether to bomb another country, Cruz has shown that he is unready for serious consideration.

Is the Republican Party now the party of peace?

Does "GOP" now stand for the "Grand Old Peace" party? You'd think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House.

Bloggers part two - the book world

The advent of the internet has changed the way the world operates with the same powerful ripple that the printing press caused in 1450 and for the same reason. The average citizen could more easily find out that a lot of other people were thinking the same thing.
