Are You Kicking Yourself For Ignoring Footgolf?

Dead Man Walker's Urgent Plea to the GOP

Nine weeks ago, when alleged conservative wunderkind Scott Walker was riding high, I rightly dismissed him as "a clueless newbie unfit to lead." But I never imagined that he'd suffer such a precipitous flameout.

Don't Let Hillary Shift Blame for Obamacare's Failures

Health insurance premiums are rising because of Obamacare. And there is still one year left of the assorted reinsurance programs designed to mask premium increases, suggesting next year's jumps will be even more eye-popping. That's a political and logistical disaster for the Democrats who wrote the law and tied their political fortunes to its success. But rather than admit their law is too restrictive and come to the table to negotiate bipartisan reforms, Democrats and their insurance industry allies have decided on a cynical strategy: scapegoating drug companies.

The Zany Side of the GOP Debates

To the one thirteenth of all Americans who watched the latest GOP debate, congratulations on surviving the political equivalent of the 24 hours of Le Mans. You just climbed Campaign Everest. Strapped to a pair of debates. Or to be more precise; a pair of mind-numbing, marathon, four and a half hour, endurance-test, butt-fall-asleep debates.

Blame America? No, Blame Neocons!

Is the current refugee crisis gripping the European Union "all America's fault"? That is how my critique of U.S. foreign policy was characterized in a recent interview on the Fox Business Channel. I do not blame the host for making this claim, but I think it is important to clarify the point.

How the Marines Wasted $36 Million

The Marine Corps just spent $36 million to learn that an average-sized woman is not as big and strong as an average-sized man. I'm as shocked as you are. This misuse of your money was part of a nine-month experiment by the Marines to argue against allowing female Marines to serve in the combat infantry. Instead of proving their point, however, all they showed is why the only standard for combat positions should be whether someone can do the job.

Can Joe Biden Save the Day for Dems?

Democrats are bailing on scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton, and the big Democratic Party money can't possibly be enthusiastic about socialist Bernie Sanders.

Miss America Wrong to Apologize to Vanessa Williams

Apologies are a first world problem. Sometimes, the apology is pro-forma, as in "I am sorry if anyone was offended by my words." Sometimes, an apology is heartfelt and spontaneous, although it is telling that I can't immediately come up with one of those.

The day I took a vacation from Super Foods and Anti-oxidants

These days everyone is giving us advice on what to eat. In our home, Dr. Oz, with his frozen jet-black hair, leads the charge on do's and don'ts. But the books and magazines on this topic are endless as well. A search on Amazon for healthy eating shows 9,000 books. One I saw promised to reset "your body's natural balance and be truly healthy."

What Happens When Church and State Get Mixed

These days, no shortage of Americans want Uncle Sam to play a larger role in regulating financial institutions. Some folks would even like to see the nationalization of large banks.
