On 2017 Resolutions

I read an article lately where the author expressed her gratefulness for life. She talked about the rough spots, the hills and valleys, the times of grief and joy. But, basically, she was grateful for life. She found life to be a gift and an adventure nonetheless.

Good News: Washington Frozen Out of Syria Peace Plan

As the U.S. mainstream media obsessed last week about Russia's supposed "hacking" of the U.S. elections and President Obama's final round of Russia sanctions in response, something very important was taking place under the media radar. As a result of a meeting between foreign ministers of Russia, Iran, and Turkey last month, a ceasefire in Syria has been worked out and is being implemented. So far it appears to be holding, and after nearly six years of horrible warfare the people of Syria are finally facing the possibility of rebuilding their lives.

Suggestions For Liberals in 2017

Because the Democrat Party continues to implode, I thought it would be helpful to write my third annual "Suggestions for Liberals" column. So here goes:

It’s Time to Rein in Regulators

I've written a book chapter and a lot of columns over the years on the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act ---- a profoundly simple, powerful bill that would require regulators and bureaucrats to get their most expensive rules approved by Congress before they could take effect ---- and we've never been closer to seeing it signed into law.

Precap of News Certain to Occur in 2017

Thanks to Donald Trump and the Chicago Cubs my outlandish predictions for 2016 were eclipsed by, of all things, reality. Worse, the fine art of fake news was commandeered by demons who used it for social and political gain––something my colleagues and I would never have dreamed possible.

Another Job Americans Won’t Do: Work on a Cruise Ship

Cruise ship travel continues to gain in popularity as passenger demand can barely keep up with fleet additions. The global cruise industry generated revenues of $37.1 billion in 2014, and is predicted to hit nearly $50 billion by year end 2018 when the number of passengers carried will exceed 25 million.

The Latest Lie From Trump’s Alt-Reality

You never hear the term "black liar" anymore. I think it died in the 19th century, which is a shame, because it'd be a kick to diss a fabulist by saying, "You are a black liar, sir!"

With UN Abstention Obama Bids Israel an ‘Unhappy Hanukkah’

America's "Wreck it Ralph" is at it again. This time, President Obama decided to give Israel one last (we can only pray) kick in the behind before he leaves office. On December 23, the U.N. Security Council brought a resolution to a vote declaring that settlements Israel had built on and occupied since 1967 have "no legal validity."

End Heroin’s Devastation in 2017

I didn't know the young man well - I'd hired him to do some handyman work around my house - but it was awfully unpleasant to learn that he died at 24 with a needle in his arm.
