Protecting School Kids

Face it. Every school in America should have a uniformed police officer on duty whenever school is in session. If smaller communities can't afford it, a federal program should be established to help. And, yes, these cops should have guns.

The Increasingly Likable Donald Trump

Donald Trump - America's loveable bull in a china shop - was an eagerly anticipated speaker at the 2015 Values Voter Summit, a conference that brings hundreds of evangelical activists to the nation's capital. Think of the summit as the Christian answer to Burning Man, without the gratuitous sex, drug use and an important reversal in which the goal is to avoid burning.

The Best Talking Heads Lean Right

Congress and the Fed Refuse to Learn From Their Mistakes

This month marks the seventh anniversary of the bursting of the housing bubble and the subsequent economic meltdown. The mood in Congress following the meltdown resembled the panicked atmosphere that followed the September 11th attacks. As was the case after September 11th, Congress rushed to pass hastily written legislation that, instead of dealing with the real causes of the crisis, simply gave the government more power.

American Politics: Disagreeing to Agree

According to a Pew Research Center poll in 2010, nearly 123 million Americans (41 percent) believe the Rapture will happen before 2050. I bring this up because the first supermoon lunar eclipse in 30 years will happen on Sunday, September 27, 2015. If you're reading this column after then, it's safe to assume it wasn't the end of the world. Also, if you're reading this column before then, well, it's also safe to assume the moon appearing weird to us in the night sky is more of a sign of our lack of perspective than ...

Dead Man Walker's Urgent Plea to the GOP

Nine weeks ago, when alleged conservative wunderkind Scott Walker was riding high, I rightly dismissed him as "a clueless newbie unfit to lead." But I never imagined that he'd suffer such a precipitous flameout.

Don't Let Hillary Shift Blame for Obamacare's Failures

Health insurance premiums are rising because of Obamacare. And there is still one year left of the assorted reinsurance programs designed to mask premium increases, suggesting next year's jumps will be even more eye-popping. That's a political and logistical disaster for the Democrats who wrote the law and tied their political fortunes to its success. But rather than admit their law is too restrictive and come to the table to negotiate bipartisan reforms, Democrats and their insurance industry allies have decided on a cynical strategy: scapegoating drug companies.

The Zany Side of the GOP Debates

To the one thirteenth of all Americans who watched the latest GOP debate, congratulations on surviving the political equivalent of the 24 hours of Le Mans. You just climbed Campaign Everest. Strapped to a pair of debates. Or to be more precise; a pair of mind-numbing, marathon, four and a half hour, endurance-test, butt-fall-asleep debates.
