No Room for ‘Trophy’ Hunting

Minnesota dentist Walter J. Palmer has dominated the news after killing Cecil, a beloved 13-year-old Zimbabwe lion. Local celebrity Cecil was lured out of a protected national park with meat drug on a truck, shot with an arrow (but not killed) and then tracked for 40 hours before he was shot dead by a rifle. This is "trophy hunting." Cecil then was skinned and beheaded, with his remains abandoned at the park border. Evidence indicates those involved in this horror marathon also tried to destroy Cecil's tracking collar to cover their tracks.

Obama's Unilateral Surrender Foreign Policy

It's not always necessary for a nation to wave the white flag for its enemies to know it has surrendered. Sometimes a leak from an administration official will do just fine without requiring all the logistics of a formal surrender ceremony.

The War Against Planned Parenthood

Whenever the Republicans target Planned Parenthood, I always remember what Jon Kyl said in the spring of 2011. Because the GOP senator's lie - and a spokesman's defense of that lie - nicely illustrates the party's eternally hostile attitude.

More the Merrier

I've got to congratulate Donald Trump for how fast he's become more annoying to the Republican Party than a mouse in an air conditioning unit. He's like that popcorn husk that gets stuck in the back of your molars and you can't pry it out with a cord of toothpicks. He's almost as grating as the Kars for Kids commercial.

Gun Control: Eating Steak with Teaspoons

President Obama told the BBC he's "stymied" because he's not gotten his way regarding gun control --yet. So, apparently we should just relinquish our guns during a Second Amendment burning ceremony on the National Lawn.

Trump: Rising From the GOP's Ashes

There's no shortage of publicity maestro, name-emblazer Donald Trump think pieces on the Internet these days. Most will attribute his straight talk to his more-than-likely-fleeting frontrunner status. Others point to some anger or racism the Trump Brand Name has tapped into. The rest? Apologists or denouncers. But all seem to agree that Trump is bad for the Republican Party; he's sucking all the air out of the nominee process. That some other alleged serious candidates won't get the attention they need because Trump is, well, trumping them.
