Hurricane Sandy Relief: A Flood of Hypocrisy

If you go to the website of Congressman Andy Harris of Maryland, you'll see a whole page devoted to Hurricane Sandy recovery. You'll see pictures of him touring flooded coastal towns. You'll see the number to call if you lost your power. You'll even see a link to the website for the National Flood Insurance Program.

Waiting for the Sequel

The latest horror movie from Washington -- "The Fiscal Cliff" -- finally came to an exciting end in the early hours of 2013.

Voice of experience should not be silenced

It's ironic. Kansas Governor Sam Brownback wants Kansas to become one of the most hospitable states in the nation for business, but one of the steps he's taking to do this might spell the end of a proven program that helps business start-ups get off to the right start and offers continuing assistance into the future.

Hurricane Sandy relief filled with pork

Many news outlets are reporting that President Obama's proposed $60.4 billion federal aid bill for Hurricane Sandy victims is packed with pork. I contacted my White House insider, Deep Mole, to get some answers.

Congress needs lessons from sports

After four horrible seasons, the Jacksonville Jaguars canned their general manager. The Bears missed the playoffs, and now Lovie Smith is unemployed. And now Andy Reid, once called "coach for life" by the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, is out of work.

Will 2013 Be the Year We Slow the Moral Decline?

With dark shadows of uncertainty descending upon the hearts of so many at the conclusion of 2012, one can only hope 2013 will be a year of promise. But even in these dark days, miracles do still happen, especially when people are willing to roll up their sleeves for the cause of freedom.

Charities Need Your Help All Year Round

While Obama moves his fiscal chess pieces toward the inevitable cliff (or more like a boat ramp), and the sad and equally inevitable failed ideas of gun control stain newspapers and online news sites, I would like to take this moment to address America's most generous contributors of time, talent and treasure to charities - conservatives.

Ode 2 2012

And so we bid a not-so-fond farewell to the bow of another large unwieldy year as it sinks slowly over the horizon wobbling unsteadily towards the graveyard of memory. And cheers erupt from we folks on shore waving the double-handed "L for loser" sign above our heads. "So long. See ya. Don't let the door slam you in the butt on the way out. And if you got any brothers or sisters, don't give them this address."

I salute America

I salute...the editor of a colonial newspaper who shut down his paper rather than pay the Stamp Act tax of 1765; his last edition proclaimed liberty as "the greatest blessing human beings can enjoy"and taxation without representation as being "fettered with the chains of inimical servitude."

Obamacare Ruling is a Conservative Win

The dream of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney has now been realized. Their solution-their idea for universal health care has been passed by both houses, signed by the president and upheld twice now by the Supreme Court. Yes, they call it Obamacare. Yes, they strangely call it socialism. But yes, it was their idea.

Salon's 'Big Lie' About Guns and Mental Illness

I'm strongly in favor of keeping the mentally ill away from firearms and I'm coming around to approving any policy that keeps crazy 'journalists' away from a keyboard, too. Case in point is Salon.com writer Arthur Chu. His rant titled "It's not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males" makes Alex Jones sound like Dr. Phil.

Why Spy on France?

According to WikiLeaks, the United States National Security Agency spied on French presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande, reports Reuters. I contacted my French informant, Pierre Le Paint, to learn why.

A Ray of Hope in the Confederacy of Dunces

In the annals of political flip flops - or "evolutions," if you prefer - none have arguably rivaled the breathtaking triple back flip executed late Monday by the governor of South Carolina.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage. Taking the field with the nation's best quickly advanced the understanding that the youth from a rural community in Central Kansas could compete with - and conquer – champions from every corner.

California’s Water Woes Hit Home

Pundits sizing up the drought have said that water is the new oil. They're wrong, of course. Oil supplies merely send nations to war, while the water shortage pits neighbors against each other.

Time for the South to Surrender

Reasonable people have suggested that removing Confederate flags from capitols, symbols from license plates, and products from Walmart shelves is mere symbolism, but it's more than that. By recognizing that flying the Confederate flag is a continuation of a treasonous act motivated by racial hatred, we can end what amounts to a 150-year-long Civil War re-enactment and move the South into what Abraham Lincoln called its "proper practical relation" to the rest of the county.

Whatever Happened to Common Sense Regarding Climate Change?

Fear mongering is quite lucrative in what seems to be a burgeoning "climate change industrial complex," where certain people benefit monetarily or politically in their promotion of global catastrophic risk due to catastrophic global warming.

How to Produce Your Own Texas Miracle

Rick Perry's running for president again, which means we have to endure a bunch of talk about what he calls the "Texas Model." The rest of us call this the "Texas Miracle," or the economic special sauce of low taxes, low regulation, low spending, and tort reform that he says created boom times in Texas while the rest of the country struggled. Hire me, goes his logic, and I'll make sure someone hires you. Being president is good work if you can get it.

Red Pope, Green Pope

He gets under their skin like termites in a boathouse. Drives them crazier than Hillary Clinton and Yoko Ono dancing on a gay pride parade float. He's the itch you can't scratch. The thorn in the palm of their paw. The 3-inch scratch on their favorite Ted Nugent album. I'm talking about that hot new Catholic sensation, Pope Frankie.
