The Hillary Paradox

In 1992, Hillary Clinton was derided as an extreme feminazi vying for all the power the White House could offer her as First Lady.

Now appearing at your street corner: the orthodontist

In today's culture, every adolescent falls into one of two categories: They've either had braces on their teeth or will get them. Guaranteed. Two of my sons were born with straight teeth. No matter. They got braces. Now their teeth are truly perfect, and I'm broke.

Intervention Fail: Back to Libya

The use of the U.S. military overseas seems to have become so commonplace that the Obama Administration can bomb a country with no Congressional input and very little media interest at all. Such was the case on Friday, when the U.S. military killed some 49 people in a bombing run near Tripoli, Libya.
