Party of Reagan Now the Party of Trump

If you are under the age of 40 and have ever discussed politics with your peers, you have no doubt encountered those who identify as Republican but are quick to tell you that they are not like those other anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-science, anti-Muslim, right-wing extremists. They only vote Republican for the tax cuts.

Colbert Wrong on Humor and Guns

Liberals have good reason to love Stephen Colbert. He is unabashedly a "big government liberal." He isn't funny like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, and he doesn't need to be to maintain his third place ranking in the late night talk show competition.

By Michael Shannon In the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" tradition characterizing Obama

In the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" tradition characterizing Obama's policy on Islamic terrorism, Rep. Don Beyer (D-Dhimmi) invited other Democrats to join him in visiting the Virginia mosque that hosted two of the 9/11 attackers in a "show of solidarity with American Muslims."

Will the IRS Take Your Passport?

A little-noticed provision in the highway funding bill Congress passed last week threatens a right most Americans take for granted: the right to travel abroad. The provision in question gives the Internal Revenue Service the authority to revoke the passport of anyone the IRS claims owes more than $50,000 in back taxes.

Yes, it's the most wonderful time of the year, when the eagerly awaited list of Top Ten Comedic News Stories of 2015 is finally, mercifully released. Yoke an ox. Toke some skunk.

Christmas Cards: then and now

Behold the authentic beauty of an old-school family photo. This image, captured in a hurry in November 1968, was carefully removed from the Kodak Instamatic camera, driven to Gibson's Discount on 10th Street in Great Bend, Kan., placed in an orange envelope and then mailed to Kodak processing labs in Rochester, N.Y., to be made into Christmas cards and then returned three weeks later to Larry and Ramona. The intrinsic appeal of imperfection is perfection.
