Should the US engage in Syria?

As Nobel Peace Prize winner President Barack Obama campaigns for another war, we should be asking whether or not the U.S. should engage Syria.

The least laboring of days

Hey, it was Labor Day, everybody. Woo-hoo. Okay, we're partying now. Throw your arms in the air and wave them like you just don't care. Blow up some balloons. Tap a keg. Rip open a bag of chips. Because this isn't a champagne and caviar kind of thing. This is the very definition of blue collar. If collars be worn at all.

Obama’s Blundering Incompetence

I don't know who's more confused about Syria, President Obama or me.

Humanizing Savage Capitalism

Since his election, Pope Francis has warned repeatedly of the challenges and dangers posed by a "savage capitalism" that "has taught the logic of profit at any cost, of giving in order to get, of exploitation without thinking of people." He has rightly criticized a "dictatorship of the economy" and a "cult of money" that consistently subordinates concern for human beings to questions of efficiency and profit. He has also held up an alternative rubric, noting that "concern for the fundamental material and spiritual welfare of every human person is the starting-point for every political and economic solution and the ...

Let’s All Write America’s Bucket List

Over the summer I've perused three or four books about bucket lists (those collections of tasks, large and small, that one dreams of completing before "kicking the bucket") and my reading dovetails nicely with the perceived state of the nation.

On Labor Day: Remembering Cesar Chavez, Enforcement Advocate

More than 50 years ago, Cesar Chavez co-founded the United Farm Workers with Dolores Huerta. Today, the UFW and Huerta remain active in their ongoing effort to win citizenship for illegal immigrants. At a recent Bakersfield rally, UFW president Arturo Rodriguez and Huerta joined others outside U.S. Representative Kevin McCarthy's office to demand immigration reform. But if Chavez, who died in 1994, were still alive he may not have been part of the demonstration.

Uncircle the firing squad

Republicans have largely squandered an August that should have been spent preparing the American people for a showdown with Democrats over the president's health care law. Instead, efforts have largely been diverted to a damaging internecine fight between proponents and critics of the defund strategy.

Administrative Amnesty Prospects Improve

The prospect of a comprehensive administrative amnesty for illegal aliens increased last week. On Friday, the White House issued a new policy telling immigration agents not to arrest and deport illegal immigrant parents of minor children. The move extends amnesty-in-place to yet another category of aliens.

Party Purity Pricks Pragmatism

And now, this week's freshly updated, highly speculative, oddly prescient, extremely long-range, totally indispensable, magically delicious, 2016 Presidential Campaign Alert. Pay no attention to that bilious sensation you are experiencing. It is simply sweet anticipation swelling into full-bloat boogie as the race for the White House floats tantalizingly around the corner. Admittedly, a wide corner. Multiple lanes. Many laps to come. Think Talladega, baby.

Ted Cruz for el Presidente!

Now that he has renounced his Canadian citizenship, Sen. Ted Cruz must run for president, but not to save our country from falling deficits, 41 months straight of private-sector job growth, or forcing health insurance companies to spend your premiums on health care. No, our very junior senator absolutely must run for president so he can help me win an ongoing argument with my wife.

The Furor Over the Rodeo Clown and the Obama Mask

Old joke: two cannibals are eating a clown and one says, "Does this taste funny to you?" In a case of life imitating joke, political partisans squared off in the case of the Obama-mask wearing rodeo clown over whether his act was funny, or in dangerously bad taste. But partisans and most of the media are missing the point of what happened.

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting. Almost every story on the issue asserts that allowing exports would be politically dangerous because it would supposedly raise prices at the pump, but the claim is never credibly sourced. In fact, every single serious study has found precisely the opposite: allowing crude exports would lower prices at the pump.

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

Elizabeth Warren continues to bedazzle people precisely because she's not running for president. If she were to actually run for president, her power to bedazzle would diminish in a flash. To quote the sage Bob Dylan, "What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big."

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
