We Are All Roger Goodell

What if we held politicians to the same standards as football players? When football players break the law, Americans demand they be benched, cut, or suspended before they get due process. But when politicians are indicted they get to stick around, spending our money until a jury of their peers-there's a terrifying thought-passes judgment. It's possible that Americans have misplaced priorities.

Congress Votes for More War in the Middle East

Last week, the House and Senate voted to rubber stamp President Obama's war plans for the Middle East. Both bodies, on a bipartisan basis, authorized the US to begin openly training and arming the rebels who have been fighting for three years to overthrow the Assad government in Syria.

Will The Swiss Vote to Get Their Gold Back?

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold. On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB's assets. Arising from popular sentiment similar to movements in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands, this referendum is an attempt to bring more oversight and accountability to the SNB, Switzerland's central bank.

Will Obama Cost Democrats the Senate?

Labor Day marks the traditional start of the autumn campaign season, and the biggest question is whether President Obama will sink his party. Since the fight for the Senate is being waged largely in the red states - where Obama has always been deemed toxic - it's no wonder that Democratic candidates are behaving as if he has a communicable disease.

The Dumb Debate: Big vs. Small

One of the dumbest points of contention in modern politics is the Big Government vs. Small Government one. It's a fake debate, only meaningful to the privileged: investors, business executives and their cronies. To everyday Americans it's a lofty, largely academic concept. Yet we've been duped into caring about it.

ISIS and the Nazis

Whither the Islamic State? That's a real double-edged question: where is the group otherwise known as ISIS headed, and can the United States and other civilized nations make it shrivel up and die? The group is and has taken off like a bat out of hell, gobbling up territory and becoming a virtual murder machine.

Time for GOP to deal with Gohmert

There are a lot of offensive ways to observe 9/11. A yoga studio near DC offered a 20 percent off sale ("9 + 11 = 20 PERCENT OFF!"), and a sex toy company soberly tweeted remembrance of "those lost, & honor those still fighting for freedom." But the most off-putting way to remember the terrorist attacks on 9/11 was by Rep. Louie Gohmert, who thinks of Sep. 11 as the anniversary of Benghazi, or as he says it, "BENGHAZI!!"
