Now It's Liberals Pushing the 'War on Christmas'

I spent a good part of one afternoon last week making a parody of the whole "Little Red Cup" controversy. The most recent iteration of our annual "War on Christmas" outrage involved Starbucks and their holiday cups. Usually in the lead up to Thanksgiving, the company issued its festive cups adorned with wreaths and whatever else reminded you of the totally nonessential yet delightful parts of Christmas. There was no nativity motif, nothing religious. It was the secular part that makes you warm and fuzzy and coaxes you to pay exorbitant sums for, let's face it, not so good ...

Paris and What Should Be Done

The horrific attacks in Paris on Friday have, predictably, led to much over-reaction and demands that we do more of the exact things that radicalize people and make them want to attack us.

Poverty From a Different Point of View

Today, more Americans than ever receive some sort of government assistance, much of which can genuinely be described as "handouts." Welfare-to-work standards, a bipartisan gem from the Clinton Era, have been relaxed. Ostensibly unemployed individuals now receive benefits for years on end.

Starbucks Cups and the Internet Idiocracy

Isn't it nice to know that even in a time of international crisis - ISIS, Syria, Putin - some Americans still make time to freak out over trivia? There's something endearingly childlike (or pathetic) about our willful refusal to put things in perspective.

No school on parade day? What kids really learned that day

Everyone is still talking about the Royals parade. It seems the only people complaining are those upset that school was canceled. Hordes of school districts gave everyone the day off. One letter to the editor last week expressed it this way: "With all the pressure on teachers and students to perform better, did they really need a day off for no real reason? I don't think that sends the right message."

Does the Bell Toll for the Fed?

Last week Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen hinted that the Federal Reserve Board will increase interest rates at the board's December meeting. The positive jobs report that was released following Yellen's remarks caused many observers to say that the Federal Reserve's first interest rate increase in almost a decade is practically inevitable.

Veterans: We Love and Honor You

Since taking office, I have had the privilege of greeting hundreds of Kansas Veterans visiting Washington as part of the Honor Flight network. This incredible program is an opportunity for these men and women to visit the memorials erected in their honor, as well as remember those missing and those who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to our country. Some of these great Kansas Veterans served in Vietnam, others Korea, and some even World War II.

Why Legal Pot Went Down in Ohio

The off-off-year elections have yielded some noteworthy results - Chris Christie's Jersey legislature has gotten bluer, Kentucky has gotten considerably redder - but election night's most fascinating tally was posted in Ohio, where voters refused to rebrand their state as Ohigho.

Robot Cars: The Return of the Sunday Driver

Perceptive conservatives have long been suspicious of 'mass transit' because of the term's Karl Marxian connotations. For the left that's a selling point because wedging the masses into mass transit allows 'experts' to decide where we will work and where we will live. The only roadblock, so to speak, is the automobile.
