Greece Today, America Tomorrow

The drama over Greece's financial crisis continues to dominate the headlines. It appears a deal has been reached providing Greece with yet another bailout if the Greek government adopts new "austerity" measures. The deal will allow all sides to brag about how they came together to save the Greek economy and the European Monetary Union. However, this deal is merely a Band-Aid, not a permanent fix to Greece's problems. So another crisis is inevitable.

Is Congress Up to the Job?

Congress officially writes the laws in the country, but they increasingly pass broad, vague generalities that allow regulators, bureaucrats, and judges to make all of the important policy decisions, often decades after the Congress that enacted the original law has left office.

Apple's Politically Correct Censorship

This is what happens when people who lack common sense or even a sense of proportion try to stay current with the latest PC hysteria. The cultural surfers at Apple were having trouble catching a wave in the wake of the cowardly shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC.

Trump’s Laughing at Us

Give Donald Trump this much: he knows how to play the media like a violin. If I had half his business brain I'd send him a bill for this column, because every time a serious journalist treats his campaign seriously it feeds his coffers.

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree Even though secular influences have reduced the Bible Belt to a Bible Thong

Even though secular influences have reduced the Bible Belt to a Bible Thong, one can still find plenty of Vacation Bible Schools here in the South.

Yet Another Right-Wing Obama Freakout

Americans typically celebrate the Fourth of July with family, friends, fireworks, food, and flags. But alas, some people are incapable of swinging with the holiday spirit.

For Normal Relations With Cuba, End U.S. Interventionism

Last week we saw an encouraging sign that the 50 year cold war between the U.S. and Cuba was finally coming to an end. President Obama announced on Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba would restore full diplomatic relations and that embassies could be re-opened in each country by the end of the month.

Dead Solid Summer

Every year, it's with a gleeful relief we embrace Independence Day, which marks the beginning of dead solid summer. The Fourth of July is a red white and blue arrow to the bulls-eye of patriotism when we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of our country by packing together in crowds, drinking a lot of beer and blowing stuff up real good.

No Legit Precedent for Gay Marriage

I did a lot of soul searching last week, trying to figure out why the legalization of same sex marriage has administered such an emotional sucker punch to my solar plexus. Some would say it's because I'm a bigot, and a bigot is never ready for the sea change that annihilates her bigoted world view. Others, including my caring and cautionary friends, have said that they understand how difficult it must be to see my concept of constitutional integrity ignored and displaced by that branch of government that represents the pinnacle of my profession, my secular Vatican, as ...

Republicans Are at Odds with Corporate America

The Republican brand is that they're on the side of business. "Corporations are people, my friends," uttered doomed 2012 presidential candidate, CEO-turned-Massachusetts-Governor Mitt Romney. At the time I assumed what he actually meant was, "Corporations are my friends, people."

The Powder Room Police

My father grew up in rural Texas during the 1930s. He childhood featured dirt roads, a hand-crank telephone and outhouses. Most, if not all, of the bathrooms the Shannons constructed were what is termed a "one-holer."
