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 ...

Shattering the American Dream

Mainstreaming Radicalism

It is getting harder to tell the right-wing nut jobs who shoot law enforcement officers from the right-wing politicians running for president. America has always had its share of John Birchers hoarding guns for a coming revolution. What's new is that the GOP has mainstreamed radicalism and turned violently anti-government rhetoric into Republican Party doctrine.

The Washington Treaty Breakers

You don't hear much about the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. And that, my friends, is a good thing. Usually this federal office is as controversial as parsley wrapped celery. On a 1-10 scale of boring, patent law has to rate about a 3,000. That's normally. But today this obscure agency has thrown football fans into raging fits. Real football. Where guys in helmets use their hands to throw or carry some spheroid object. Not faux football, where athletes direct a round ball with their feet.

1964 Civil Rights Act Declared All Americans Equal in the Eyes of the Law

President John Kennedy did not know when he delivered his historic civil rights address on June 11, 1963, that he would not live to see what he had done. He well knew, though, that while America was facing a legal and moral crisis he needed to strike a steady tone and to point the way toward higher ground.
