God bless America, and how's everybody?
I disagree with some of Rand Paul's more libertarian positions, especially on social issues. And I'm certainly not endorsing him or anyone else to be the Republican nominee for president at this time. But Sen. Paul of Kentucky did two things recently that won my favor. He showed the 2,500 conservative activists at the CPAC conference last weekend that he understands what the GOP must do if it wants to take the Senate this fall and win back the White House.
If you keep up with social justice issues, you've no doubt heard of the "Ban Bossy" campaign (banbossy.com) spearheaded by Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and other prominent females.
Did you ever think you'd see the day when decrying low-income kids who get free school lunches would become a political battle cry, coupled with the suggestion that parents who sign up their kids for free lunches love them less than parents who send their children to school with brown bagged baloney sandwiches?
There's a reason why the U.S. Senate has long been nicknamed the Cave of Winds. Typically, its denizens are all talk, no action.
In 2003, I opposed the Medicare prescription drug bill, in large part because I expected that - like all other government entitlement programs - it would end up costing far more than initially projected. I was wrong.
I happened to be doing a 20-hour road trip in a rented car when Apple announced CarPlay, a system that will soon allow motorists to text, check email and be entertained via their mobile devices, while roaring down the highway.
CPAC-the political convention that is to conservatives what ComicCon is to nerds-did not sort out the Republican field for 2016, but it did reveal something much scarier. Unlike most years when Republicans insist they should fight for ideals they never define, this time conservatives sketched out a frighteningly radical agenda. Taking CPAC speakers at their word, the next Republican generation will make us pine for the comparatively bi-partisan moderation and restraint that characterized the George W. Bush administration.
Is it really a surprise that the governors of all 50 states are pushing back against President Obama's push to cut their National Guard troops?
Janet Murguia, the National Council of La Raza's Chief Executive Officer, recently made an explosive charge against President Barack Obama. Murguia called the president the "Deporter- in-Chief," a reference to what many Hispanic lobbying organizations allege is Obama's record number of deportations.
Mr. Putin's quick takeover of the Crimean peninsula was no surprise to me.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has held up his hand, clenched his fist and given "half a peace sign" to the Ukraine, Europe and especially to President Barack Obama. And so the debate has begun:
Has it really been 10 years since I wrote a heartfelt letter to my newborn son, Gideon Lewis Tyree? (See my blog at www.dannytyree.blogspot.com for a collection of Gideon columns.)
Boy oh boy, the President of the United States is such a wimp!
So what does the Tea Party want this fall?
Tyrades! By Danny Tyree
God bless America, and how's everybody?
A global survey of 68 countries (including our allies) at the end of 2013 conducted by Gallup and the Worldwide Independent Network now rates America as the biggest threat to world peace on the planet. Pakistan was the runner up, closely followed by China. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea are equally tied for fourth place.
If you have a seventh grader, then you know that he or she just got done taking a standardized test for writing. The good news is our country's education policy recognizes writing is a necessary skill in the information era. The bad news is because of the way we administer and grade the writing standardized tests, we'd have a better idea of whether our kids can write if we looked at their texts.
According to a new UN report, there's good news and bad news about global warming. The good news- it's worse than we thought. Yeah. That's the good news. The bad news- you don't want to know. Because then there's worse news and ultimately, "holy moley, is that an asteroid the size of a mini-mall crushing my house" news.
President Obama took a victory lap on Tuesday, celebrating 7 million Obamacare enrollees.
According to DC Comics, March 30 marked the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Batman (in "Detective Comics" #27).
