Does the U.S. Supreme Court Know What Corruption Is?

The Supreme Court decided last month that the only way a public official can be corrupted is if there is a quid pro quo transaction - I give you dollars, you in direct return do me political favors. If there isn't evidence of that kind of outright bribery, the Court said, it's not corruption.

What Does The U.S. Government Want in Ukraine?

In several eastern Ukrainian towns over the past week, the military opened fire on its own citizens. Dozens may have been killed in the violence. Although the U.S. government generally condemns a country's use of military force against its own population, especially if they are unarmed protesters, this time the U.S. administration blamed the victims. After as many as 20 unarmed protesters were killed on the May 9th holiday in Ukraine, the State Department spokesman said "we condemn the outbreak of violence caused by pro-Russia separatists."

Neutrality Nuts Won’t Be Happy Until Government Controls the Internet

Angry liberals are set to descend on the Federal Communications Commission to disgrace themselves by shouting down the proceedings. The lead group involved, Free Press, has sent out an invitation asking people to bring "pots, pans or whatever else you can bang on so the FCC hears our message loud and clear." Banging on pots and pans as an exercise in clarity? It gets better: "Together we'll dance, drum and shout that the agency must throw out its destructive plan and reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service. This is the only way to restore real Net Neutrality."

Why We’re No Longer Number One

Last week World Bank economists predicted that China would soon displace the United States as the world's largest economy. The fact that this one-time economic basket case is now positioned to surpass the US is one more sign of the damage done to American prosperity by welfare, warfare, corporatism, and fiat money.

Class Act

A commencement speaker at Point Park University here urged graduates to brush their teeth. Whether she was grasping at a clever metaphor for handling life after college or she actually felt that a diploma along with good dental hygiene were keys to happiness, I couldn't tell. Commencement speeches come in many flavors.

Senator Pat Roberts listening tour

Over the latest Congressional work period, I conducted a 20 county, 2,000 mile listening tour, traveling from eastern Kansas to counties on the Colorado and Nebraska borders and back again. I spoke to farmers and ranchers, took part in a technical broadband summit, toured hospitals, met with students, visited a major oil fracking site, and held numerous town hall meetings.

Republicans Fail to Offer Viable Option to Obamacare

When I cast my Senate vote for the Affordable Care Act in 2009, I had a lot of mixed feelings. The bill certainly didn't do everything I had hoped for, and I knew parts of it would have to be revised by future Congresses. But I was sure that the health-care system we had was broken, and the ACA went at least part of the way toward fixing it.

Lazy Stupid Ham Butts

It wasn't what you would call the most favorable week for old white racist men. Then again, these weeks, not many are. How bad did it get for ancient intolerant caucasian males? Bowling ball dropped on your little toe from a height of nine feet bad. Brazilian soccer stampede bad. Donald Trump testifying at your rent-hearing bad.

No Room in America for ‘Plantation Mentality’

Donald Sterling is a despicable human being. The racist landowner and L.A. Clippers owner's years of racist activity included evicting a "smelly black woman" from her apartment because she complained about the leaking plumbing.
