Don’t Just Reform Taxes, Cut Them

Many Americans who have wrestled with a 1040 form, or who have paid someone to prepare their taxes, no doubt cheered the news that Congress will soon resume working on tax reform. However, taxpayers should temper their enthusiasm because, even in the unlikely event tax collection is simplified, tax reform will not reduce the American people's tax burden.

Trump’s Numbers Don’t Add Up

Donald Trump remains haunted by the fact that more people opposed him in November, about 54 percent, than voted for him. The "mandate" he cites repeatedly while making executive orders and rash pronouncements doesn't exist.

Democrats Are Completely Lost

Shattered. Splattered. Scattered. Battered. Tattered. Skewered and plattered. Barely mattered. That was the Democrats after November's election. But surely in the months since, they'd come together to stand aligned in the face of the flaky imperiousness of our so-called President. You'd think. And ripe bananas make a fine masonry grout.

Still Searching for a Diet Panacea

I know Democrats and progressives are going nuts over President Trump's first few weeks in office - I know the Middle East is a mess and that we have no small number of incredible challenges at home - but I have my own worries.

The Country of California

In 2017, you should never be subjected to the use of the word, "gnarly," unless you're describing your latest faux Chippendale woodworking project.

On the Supreme Court, Democrats Simply Lost

When Senate Republicans decided last year to ditch their constitutional duty - by stiffing President Obama's eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee, denying him even the courtesy of a hearing - they took a big political risk. They gambled that the voters wouldn't punish them on election day.

Ordering Dinner With a Side of Sanctimony

A nationwide group of restaurants is now offering diners a chance to stick it to the man while simultaneously putting the fork to their tofu. Those of you who've wanted to join a great moral crusade, but never got around to cleaning up the basement and inviting a Syrian "refugee" to move in, can now eat locally and be served globally.

Trump’s First 100 Days

As extraordinary as it sounds, Donald J. Trump is now the 45th President of the United States. It's mind-boggling. Like making John Goodman the cover model for this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Kim Kardashian-appointed chief scientist at the Atomic Energy Lab. Colin Kaepernick in charge of WikiLeaks.
