Drafting Women Means Equality in Slavery

Last week the House Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act requiring women to register with Selective Service. This means that if Congress ever brings back the draft, women will be forcibly sent to war.

Ruining the Movies One Text at a Time

It must have been the result of what Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr derisively terms a "nationwide search." AMC Theatres was looking for a new CEO and it hired Adam Aron. He's not on the job three months before Aron unveils a new marketing strategy: Attracting 22-year-olds by driving off everyone aged 35 and over.

Calling All Anti- Capitalists and Ivory Tower Educators

A new Harvard University survey shows that 51 percent of young Americans don't support capitalism --which goes to show you that higher education can't fix stupid -- especially when it's flowing from the mouths of anti-capitalist educators who, when you're listening to them, make you envious of every deaf person you've ever met.

Lucifer in the House

One of the oddest moments in a presidential campaign filled brim-spillingly with them is the sight of the Republican Party struggling to rally around the man looking more and more like its presumptive nominee, Donald J. Trump. Perhaps "rally" is too strong of a word. More of a depressed dawdle. A lackluster loiter. Melancholy mosey. Crematory crawl.

Ted Cruz, the Desperate Magician

Imagine if I toured Pennsylvania wearing a crown, going from every diner to gas station announcing myself as Miss Pennsylvania, even though I never participated in the pageant or won anything.

Going for Broke with Obamacare

Everything about health insurance was confusing, stupid and horrible long before Obamacare came along.

Hillary Can Show Bernie How to Lose With Grace

Despite repeated pummelings - four more losses Tuesday night, including a blowout in Pennsylvania - Bernie Sanders still can't find the high road on his mental GPS. He's still steamed that Democrats have the temerity to run Democrats-only primaries (he's not even a Democrat), says he's gonna win in irrelevant West Virginia on May 10, and continue to battle at the convention to the bitter end.

13 Years Later, Reassessing 'Mission Accomplished'

Almost thirteen years ago, George W. Bush stood on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln and made a very important speech.

Yes Prince Faisal, We Need to 'Recalibrate' Our Relationship

For decades the U.S. and Saudi Arabia have shared a peculiar relationship: the Saudis sell relatively cheap oil to the United States for which they accept our fiat currency. They then recycle those paper dollars into the U.S. military-industrial complex through the purchase of billions of dollars worth of military equipment, and the U.S. guarantees the security of the Saudi monarchy.

Gender Chaos in an XX-XY World

We live in a country where people think it's okay for has-been rock stars to cancel concerts because of their beliefs, but it's not okay for bakers, florists and photographers to do the same.
