Inaccurate Political Rage is All the Rage

Do you have personal issues? Do you want to seem intelligent, well informed and on-top-of-it-all without having to bother to put in any effort or time to see whether your assertions are accurate? If so, then join the trend that's all the rage in the 21st century: show indignation now and worry (or, more likely, don't) about accuracy later. And, for heaven's sake, never EVER worry about "nuance."

Democratic Scandal Brings Obama to Delaware

President Obama came to my tiny home state of Delaware on Thursday with a "new" initiative to repair deteriorating infrastructure around the country (and to repair his declining polling numbers).

Honoring Our Fathers

Despite the media play Chicago gets, it isn't the official "Murder Capital of the U.S.A."

Take the Win in Iran

With Barack Obama's approval ratings getting dragged down by a floundering foreign policy, we might miss one of his biggest successes in a place no one expected-Iran. Whether we extend the interim anti-nuke deal or reach a longer-term agreement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Obama has backed our enemy into a corner. But fans of cynicism, failure, and partisanship should take heart, because there's still time for congress to turn what should be a win-win for the United States into yet another loss.

What’s Missing in the Current Immigration ‘Crisis’ Debate

Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources, and it has heated up the immigration debate in the US.

House GOP’s Hilarious Strategy is Born to Lose

Recently, I wrote that summer is the time for stupid political stunts, and John Boehner should honor that tradition by making good on his vow to sue President Obama for alleged executive abuses. "Do it, Mr. Speaker," I urged. "Give us a laugh during silly season."

Forget Hobby Lobby - This is the Real Scandal

As you've probably noticed, the airwaves and news pages have been filled with liberals deliberately lying about the meaning of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision (Conservatives want to deny women birth control, Republicans are trying to stop women from having sex, yadda yadda yadda).

Dr Oz's Dead End Brick Road

Pity poor Dr. Mehmet Oz. He gets big bucks hosting the popular Opra Winfrey-syndicated "The Dr. Oz Show" on TV. But now he's come under fire in Congress, in the media, and on the Internet for promoting health supplements that sold big due to his effusive recommendations -- products now considered by many to be largely useless. How did he respond?

History, hardship and life's lessons

"Do your kids a favor, don't make their lives easy" was an expression coined in the early '90s, directed toward parents who had the misguided notion that the best pathway to adulthood was one devoid of disappointment. In fact, of course, hardship, failure, and disappointment can be life's best teacher. Every adult who was raised in the 1930s knew adversity. Most males came to appreciate the value of boot camp, and a drill sergeant whose mission in life was to make them miserable. And, along the way, our youth became mature, responsible and accountable. Children born in the ...
