How much things have changed

While searching the Internet last week, I stumbled upon a Google Archives article that made me chuckle.

Faceoff isn't adding anything yet

YORK, Pa. - It's fitting that Pennsylvania is land of the pretzel - where "Pennsylvania Dutch" Swiss and German immigrants introduced the food to America in the 19th century.

It looks like we are being rushed

As the Democratic National Committee (DNC) launches an ad campaign in battleground states to promote rapid passage of President Barack Obama's "American Jobs Act," I cannot help but to ask: "Why the rush, Mr. President?"

10 years after, still remember 9-11

Recently, I was reminded of the value of freedom while attending a military retirement ceremony in Washington D.C. Driving down the hill after the ceremony, my soul was stirred as my eyes caught a glimpse of the late-summer sun reflecting across the sea of white-washed stones at the adjacent Arlington National Cemetery - and wondered what it is that defines a person who is willing to give his or her life in exchange for freedom.

Obama ranks with the best cavers

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - As you enter this city of 58,566 two hours from the Colorado-Utah border you can swear you almost see facial images in the red rock and gorges carved and gouged by Mother Nature.

Krazy kostumes komfort kiddies

Perhaps a kindergartner needs to have his dad wait with him and wave bye-bye as he steps onto the school bus in the morning, but Rain Price is a 10th-grader in American Fork, Utah, and his dad, Dale Price, nevertheless waves from the bus stop every morning, right in front of Rain's friends.

It's no secret that the American conservative movement is bereft of ideas.

The Return of Satire

Decades after being dismissed by George S. Kaufman as a genre that "closes on Saturday night," satire, like the measles and mumps, is making a comeback. And in many quarters, remains the most feared of the three conditions.

Is ‘Je suis Charlie’ an Accurate Slogan?

In the wake of the terrorist massacre in Paris, the new battle cry throughout the civilized world is "Je suis Charlie," meaning "I am Charlie." The phrase expresses solidarity for the four cartoonists and 13 others butchered by Islamic terrorists who attacked the satirical newspaper and a kosher market. But, actually, it's clear now that the slogan for this century should be another one: "We are screwed."

Adios, Rick Perry

A decade ago, Rick Perry famously signed off an interview with the words, "Adios, mofo." Now, signing off as governor, he told the same reporter, "Adios, my friend." He might be on his way out, but he's leaving behind a cast of characters that promises years of entertainment. The price of oil might be tanking, but stupid will always be Texas' most abundant natural resource.

If the Fed Has Nothing to Hide, It Has Nothing to Fear

Since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the dollar has lost over 97 percent of its purchasing power, the US economy has been subjected to a series of painful Federal Reserve-created recessions and depressions, and government has grown to dangerous levels thanks to the Fed's policy of monetizing the debt. Yet the Federal Reserve still operates under a congressionally-created shroud of secrecy.

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting. Almost every story on the issue asserts that allowing exports would be politically dangerous because it would supposedly raise prices at the pump, but the claim is never credibly sourced. In fact, every single serious study has found precisely the opposite: allowing crude exports would lower prices at the pump.

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

Elizabeth Warren continues to bedazzle people precisely because she's not running for president. If she were to actually run for president, her power to bedazzle would diminish in a flash. To quote the sage Bob Dylan, "What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big."

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
