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.

Prayer: Now more than ever

In this contemporary world it is easy to dismiss as old-fashioned the idea that prayer has a role in our public sphere. Indeed the U.S. Supreme Court is even taking up a case by those opposed to prayer at government meetings. But irrespective of modernity, national prayer has always played a critical role in shaping our great nation. Prayer binds man to one another, and it shows that even with great power entrusted to them our leaders have called upon the Almighty in times of need and of thanksgiving. In fact, the first national call to prayer in America ...

The Fallacy of Common Sense

It used to be common sense that the earth was flat. Then it was common sense that the earth was the center of the universe. Now it's common sense that you can use a student's test scores to measure a teacher's effectiveness. But that idea, called the "Value-Added Method" or VAM, came crashing to earth recently when Washington state became the first state to lose a No Child Left Behind (NCLB) waiver-and the money that goes along with it-because it could not come up with a way to use test scores to judge teachers.

Sterling’s message is loud and clear

The issue brought to light in the Donald Sterling matter is this: Neither passing legislation nor even electing a black president can cleanse all minds of evil thoughts.

Bad Penny Boehner Just Won’t Go Away

The stupefyingly stubborn John Boehner is at it again. A week ago at a Las Vegas fundraiser, the House speaker audaciously said that he's hell-bent on passing an immigration bill this year. Then at the exclusive Brown's Run Country Club in his Ohio home district, Boehner publicly ridiculed his fellow House Republicans for refusing to fall in line. Said Boehner in a whining voice intended to disparage uncooperative Republicans: "Here's the attitude. Ohhhh. Don't make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard."
