How the Marines Wasted $36 Million

The Marine Corps just spent $36 million to learn that an average-sized woman is not as big and strong as an average-sized man. I'm as shocked as you are. This misuse of your money was part of a nine-month experiment by the Marines to argue against allowing female Marines to serve in the combat infantry. Instead of proving their point, however, all they showed is why the only standard for combat positions should be whether someone can do the job.

Can Joe Biden Save the Day for Dems?

Democrats are bailing on scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton, and the big Democratic Party money can't possibly be enthusiastic about socialist Bernie Sanders.

Miss America Wrong to Apologize to Vanessa Williams

Apologies are a first world problem. Sometimes, the apology is pro-forma, as in "I am sorry if anyone was offended by my words." Sometimes, an apology is heartfelt and spontaneous, although it is telling that I can't immediately come up with one of those.

The day I took a vacation from Super Foods and Anti-oxidants

These days everyone is giving us advice on what to eat. In our home, Dr. Oz, with his frozen jet-black hair, leads the charge on do's and don'ts. But the books and magazines on this topic are endless as well. A search on Amazon for healthy eating shows 9,000 books. One I saw promised to reset "your body's natural balance and be truly healthy."

What Happens When Church and State Get Mixed

These days, no shortage of Americans want Uncle Sam to play a larger role in regulating financial institutions. Some folks would even like to see the nationalization of large banks.

Steve Green Could Profit from Kim Davis’ Example

After today this column will be a Kim–Davis–free zone, but first lets look at one more facet of the controversy. Although I admire the courage of the Kentucky clerk, I disagree with her refusal as a government official to follow the law. Civil disobedience is confined to civilians. If Davis' strong Christian faith prevented her from issuing homosexual marriage licenses then she should have made a very public announcement and resigned her post.

Bernie Sends A Strong Message to Hillary

Bernie Sanders, a non-observant Jew and self-described socialist, speaking to Christian-right students at Falwell-founded Liberty University... now there's a sight you don't see every day.

Lawlessness and the Faith of Kim Davis

Rowan County, Ky. elected official Kim Davis was jailed unjustly. Unjustly, because we live in a society which promotes right as wrong, and wrong as right, and laws are applied to some and not others.

Congress Fiddles While the Economy Burns

Reports that the official unemployment rate has fallen to 5.1 percent may appear to vindicate the policies of easy money, corporate bailouts, and increased government spending. However, even the mainstream media has acknowledged that the official numbers understate the true unemployment rate. This is because the government's unemployment figures do not include the 94 million Americans who have given up looking for work or who have settled for part-time employment. John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics estimates the real unemployment rate is between 23 and 24 percent.

Kim Davis Problems Are Just Beginning

Last week's column concerning Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis generated a strong response from readers, and much of it, as predicted, was negative. The majority felt Davis' refusal to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples because it violated God's law was a principled exercise of civil disobedience.
