Justin Bieber: How He Got Here and Why He Should Be Sent Home

Canadian-born, teen heart throb Justin Bieber's criminal misbehavior may indirectly hurt Congress' push for comprehensive immigration reform. All systems for the White House's coveted blanket amnesty are "go." President Obama just touted his version of reform during his Tuesday State of the Union address. House Majority leader John Boehner released what he calls his "immigration principles." Given those two major immigration developments, now could be a bad time for a foreign-born visa holder to be in the headlines because of his embarrassing illegal antics. Because of Bieber's high visibility, journalists reporting on his story-seemingly everyone in the ...

Chris Christie’s Branding Implosion

When the Hindenburg flew over Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey on May 6, 1937, as it burst into flames, causing 35 fatalities, WLS radio's Herbert Morrison's eyewitness account became one that would be remembered for the ages: "Oh, the humanity!"

Fight Global Warming: Approve the Pipeline!

President Obama laid out his personal standard for approving the presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline in his global warming speech at Georgetown University on June 25, 2013. If the project increases global warming, he'll veto it. Based on that standard, he should now approve the project - immediately.

Texas Still Waiting for the 21st Century to Show Up

Sometimes rhetorical questions demand answers. When Texas state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte asked, "At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?" the deafening roar from the gallery carried Wendy Davis' filibuster over the midnight finish line last summer. But Van de Putte only got an answer last week. It turns out that it doesn't matter if a woman is even dead or raped. Texas Republicans don't recognize women at all.

A Tip of the Stove-Pipe Hat To Abe Lincoln

February 12 marks the 205th anniversary of the birth of our sixteenth president. Yes, I could write a lot of dry, pompous stuff about the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln; but whereas Lincoln had only 18 months of formal education, I was exposed to the warped perspective of history teacher Jerry Holt at Marshall County High School (Lewisburg, Tennessee) for THREE YEARS, so what you're going to get is The Lincoln You Never Knew.

Liberals Say the Funniest Things... Sometimes

Out here on the East Coast, left-wingers ignore all sorts of research proving their feel-good remedies often exacerbate the problems they try to solve, such as violence (with gun buy-backs) and unemployment (by raising the minimum wage).

Obama’s Final Turning Point

It's crunch time for President Barack Obama. President Lyndon Johnson once said: "Being President is like being a jackass in a hailstorm. There's nothing to do but stand there and take it."

Black History Month: Where Does It Go From Here?

As luck would have it, I was multitasking while researching this Black History Month column. While I scanned for appropriate quotations from some noted African-American, I jumped over to Yahoo! and stumbled across the perfect quote in the obituary of Pete Seeger (folksinger, activist and noted Caucasian).

Correct Spelling, Canceled

As an American, I laugh at those archaic British spellings. Colour? Honour? Their inferiourity, if you will, is obvious. Centre? Theatre? Ridiculous. Most of these barbaric forms were corrected in America hundreds of years ago. Yet one galling Britishism is appearing on my computer screen all too frequently of late: "cancelled," with a gratuitous extra l.

‘School choice’ should be transparent

This past week, The Tribune received a press release asking us to consider running a story about National School Choice Week, Jan. 26 through Feb. 1. However, most of the resources they pointed to were directed towards large metropolitan areas. In addition, we could not locate in these materials what organization(s) were sponsors of this national campaign.
