Thought of the Day: Ebola a Pandemic?

Thought of the Day: Ebola a Pandemic?

Thought of the Day: Carry Me Back to Old Virginia

The claim by David Brat, an economics professor at Virginia’s Randolph-Macon College, that his victory in last Tuesday’s primary was because God intervened on his behalf, is obviously spurious. He won because 36,000 of the 65,000 people (13% of the

The Intolerance of Brandeis

The Intolerance of Brandeis

Condescending Climate Changers

Thought of the Day: Lessons from Caracas

Thought of the Day: Lessons from Caracas

Three people died in riots in Caracas last Thursday. Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro predictably blamed the deaths on “neofascists financed by the United States.” Nothing was said about empty shelves in stores, food shortages, or an inability to buy a

Inequality: The Siren Call of Progressives

Inequality: The Siren Call of Progressives

As Americans, we are all equal, yet unequal. Most world leaders preach equality but practice inequality. Exhibit number one is our president. Everybody realizes the presidency is taxing and the job demands periods of relaxation. Even so, the office is

Thought of the Day: Purge in Pyongyang

Thought of the Day: Purge in Pyongyang

Kim Jong-un’s killing of his uncle is a big deal. It is not as though Jang Song-thaek was one of the “White Hats” of North Korea. (There are none that we know of.) He was a notorious thug, a brother-in-law

Thought of the Day: Whistleblowers and Extortion

Thought of the Day: Whistleblowers and Extortion

There is nothing wrong with “blowing the whistle” on someone doing something corrupt or unethical. In fact, it is our moral obligation to be the “rat” in such instances. For example, whistleblowers regarding the cover-up on Benghazi and the harassing

The American Experiment: A Lesson for Today

The American Experiment: A Lesson for Today

Life is an experiment. We begin as infants. Everything that comes later is untried, at least in our own experience, thus everything we face is new – every time we pick up the phone or cross a street. Almost exactly

Paul Ryan Is Back

Paul Ryan Is Back

Paul Ryan’s call for fiscal sanity in early 2010 with his “Roadmap for America’s Future” was a rare voice of reason that periodically emanates from the asylum that masquerades as Congress. That he did so when he was barely 40
