Health Really Is Everything

His neck and underarms were swollen. His skin itched, particularly on his arms. Sleeping at night was impossible.

The World’s Policeman Stops for a Donut

Well, this is odd. The heck with an exit strategy. We can't even work out an admittance maneuver. The automatic door-opener that proved so reliable for presidents past has short-circuited and keeps slamming shut whenever Barack Obama tries to enter the war store with his empty shopping cart.

Guess Where Those Chemical Weapons Came From, Mr. President

On September 11, 2001, I wrote a column entitled "Now We Know How Israel Feels." Now, 12 years later, with a community organizer in the White House who has no idea about the proper use of America's military might, who believes our only real ally in the Middle East, Israel, is the cause of all the trouble there, and who opposed pursuing our enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan, I'm not sure we do.

Political opportunism on Syria

There is a danger in being as glib as Sen. Ted Cruz, the winner of several national debating awards in college. He has utilized his considerable rhetorical skills to put himself in the 2016 discussion. But by both politicizing and trivializing the question of whether to bomb another country, Cruz has shown that he is unready for serious consideration.

Is the Republican Party now the party of peace?

Does "GOP" now stand for the "Grand Old Peace" party? You'd think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House.

Bloggers part two - the book world

The advent of the internet has changed the way the world operates with the same powerful ripple that the printing press caused in 1450 and for the same reason. The average citizen could more easily find out that a lot of other people were thinking the same thing.

No accountability in school accountability

Standardized testing can close your public school, hold your kid back a year or now get a teacher fired-all in the name of accountability. But standardized testing's sheen of fairness got tarnished last week, proving that despite all the promises, there is no accountability in accountability.

Pied Piper of the Potomac

Got to forgive presidential and congressional staffers for covering their ears and singing "la la la" at the top of their lungs, as everyone pretends not to be knee-deep in the icky, tricky, sticky Syria situation. You might say Washington is in a Semi-Syrious mode right now. And a Semi-Not-So-Syrious mode. Simultaneously.

Presidential Dithering

Syria has taken over the top of the agenda, but very soon Congress will necessarily return to high stakes fiscal negotiations, not just over the continuing resolution to fund the government, but also over the federal debt ceiling. Speaker John Boehner is committed to the principle that has so effectively constrained discretionary spending since the historic summer 2011 deal: debt ceiling increases must be matched dollar-for-dollar with new spending cuts. At the top of the spending cut priority list should be elimination of the most widely hated aspect of the new health care law: the individual mandate.
