Senate Could Destroy Your Car's Trade-in Value

The Senate may vote soon on an amendment by Democratic senator Dick Blumenthal that would make it illegal for dealers to sell any car with an open recall. That might sound good, but there's a huge problem: many recalls are for items as trivial as a printing error in the owner's manual, and when a part is simply unavailable, there's nothing you can do about it. The Blumenthal proposal would therefore effectively make it impossible for millions of Americans - finding their cars suddenly with little or no trade-in value - to buy a new car.

Peace is Boring

In all of America's 239 years of existence, only roughly 20 of them have been without warfare of some kind. And no, those are not in a row. We've had one or two years, here and there, where we haven't spent our time bombing foreign countries, bayoneting our brothers in hopes of keeping our slaves or invading Canada (that really happened, and more than once). We are a warring people. In the 219 years we've been raging and waging, we've managed to amass the largest military in the history of gatherings where people dressed alike.

Unlocking Prison Reform

Back on the Fourth of July, buried in the mumbo-jumbo of campaign rhetoric, was a statement by Democrat Martin O'Malley. The former Maryland governor said "patriotism" is rooted in helping others, and among those he singled out were people in prison.

Scott Walker's Delusion

When I heard the news about the nuclear deal with Iran, I decided to seek out the sage wisdom of Scott Walker. Because surely, with his vast national security experience - fighting unionized workers, lobbying for a Milwaukee Bucks arena, running a state that ranks 38th in the nation in job creation - he would know what's best for America on the world stage.

Senate Needs to Accept Historic Deal With Iran

You can lead a Senator to water, but you cannot make him think. Benjamin Netanyahu's bellicose bellyaching notwithstanding, getting Iran to give up its nuclear ambitions makes the world safer, is broadly popular with the American people, and is the crowning achievement of an American-led foreign policy in a messy, post-9/11 world. But if this good deal is to become a real deal, first Kerry and his boss must get it past the numbskulls they used to serve with in the United States Senate.

Greece Today, America Tomorrow

The drama over Greece's financial crisis continues to dominate the headlines. It appears a deal has been reached providing Greece with yet another bailout if the Greek government adopts new "austerity" measures. The deal will allow all sides to brag about how they came together to save the Greek economy and the European Monetary Union. However, this deal is merely a Band-Aid, not a permanent fix to Greece's problems. So another crisis is inevitable.
