Two failed parties, two inadequate choices

America is a nation in crisis. Faith in our economic and political institutions, from Wall Street to Congress, is at or near historic lows.

There is nothing to do- in the world

I grew up in Salida, Colo surrounded by majestic mountains, located only 20 miles from Monarch Ski Area on the Arkansas River with three hot springs swimming pools within a 15 mile radius. It had a bowling alley, movie theater, and stunningly beautiful golf course. We also had an ice skating rink open about three weeks per year.

It's not all Greek to me

The financial situation and recent elections in Greece are once again bringing to the forefront the deficit issues in our own country. Admirably, the citizens of Greece elected the party vowing to stay in the European Union but work toward reducing the harsh terms of the bailout program.

Protecting older Americans is a federal law enforcement priority

Elder abuse is a hidden epidemic that annually impacts the health and well-being of 6 million older people, as well as their families and caretakers. As U.S. Attorney in the District of Kansas, I am dedicating our office to join in the drive to protect older Americans.

Campaign treasure hunters

From out of the green mist enveloping the campaign doldrums they come. Relentlessly. Doggedly. Cattedly. Trudging, blank-faced and soulless. Armies of cash-hungry zombies brandishing partisan pickaxes, shovels and crowbars, with only one goal rattling around their feverish brains. Campaign booty. Pieces of eight. Entire 8s. Eight-figured 8s.

I wish I may, I wish I might

As a kid growing up in an era of limited television viewing options (we had three channels, maybe four when the wind didn't blow or there were no clouds), the few programs we watched left lasting impressions. One I keenly recall came on Sunday evenings. It was the Wonderful World of Disney.

Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest

Where does the Obama Administration find these people?

Congress Playing Chicken on DHS Funding Bill

For President Obama and the unlawful immigrants he is determined to reward with work permits, social security numbers, and welfare benefits, last week was triumphant. As the congressional February 27 deadline for funding the Department of Homeland Security draws closer, insiders learn with each passing day that Obama's executive action is much more expansive than originally presented.

How Many More Wars?

Last week President Obama sent Congress legislation to authorize him to use force against ISIS "and associated persons and forces" anywhere in the world for the next three years. This is a blank check for the president to start as many new wars as he wishes, and it appears Congress will go along with this dangerous and costly scheme.

Boehner, Netanyahu Helping Iran

What would it look like if politics stopped at the water's edge? It wouldn't look like the mess that John Boehner created by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a session of Congress on March 3. By allowing Netanyahu to stage what is effectively a campaign event in the U.S. Capitol, congressional Republicans have not only damaged our relations with Israel but threatened our diplomatic negotiations with Iran.

The New Republican Tar Pits

It's kind of sad being forced to watch the death struggle of these modern-day dinosaurs. Responsible parents should keep their kids from peering over the Plexiglas railing into the tar pits below to see the huge lumbering antediluvian beasts frenziedly dig themselves deeper into the sticky morass that is gay marriage. Not a sight for the queasy or squeamish.
